Watch Big Brother 13 on SuperPass! Daily Hamsterwatch
I don't care who wins, I'm just here for the cheap entertainment.. the cheaper, the better
This site is about the Big Brother 13 feeds and contains spoilers! It isn't necessarily thorough: it's what I catch and/or what interests me, and it isn't necessarily about who will win, who should win, who's cute or who's horrid. It's about watching hamsters: who's doing what and why. If they aren't entertaining, get rid of 'em! Thanks for encouraging my behavior. Your pal, dingo


Porsche is Head of Household
Adam & Shelly are nominated
Nobody is Have-not
Duos are back for 1 week

Duos were reinstated after Porsche opened Pandora's Box

Brendon was revived a week after eviction after apparently beating the other three evictees to date in a CBS poll, and beating August 11 evictee Lawon in a live ball-chute comp.

They called Adam's elf Cruddy and his beardless look Phillip.

Brendon's knees got messed up from the food comp with the ant costumes.

They called Dominic PT for pre-teen, a running gag about how young he looks, and/or part-time, referring to his modeling career.

Nominations & veto were pairs-based until there were 10 left.

The evictee's surviving partner got one of four Golden Keys, meaning they couldn't be nominated or play for HOH until there were 10 left.

Dick left mysteriously, off the feeds, due to 'personal reasons' per him and CBS. We may never know the full story.

CBS shows air Sundays and Wednesdays at 8pm, and live eviction Thursdays at 9pm

Big Brother After Dark airs 1-4am Thursdays and 12-3am other nights, on Showtime in USA and Global Reality in Canada

BB13 prizes are the same: $500k for the winner and $50k for 2nd place. The others still earn $750 a week including pre-show hotel and jury sequester. The BB veterans might get more.

The habitat has 52 cameras and 95 microphones.

The recorded Big Brother in-house announcements are the voice of producer Don Wollman.

All feeds stay on one 'scene' when someone's in Diary.

Blondes have fun (Wednesday)

The camera came out and they posed in tinfoil bunny ears they'd made, and Porsche choreographed a Reservoir Dogs group shot, but I'm not sure the effect came through on that one as she visualized it.. Adam did a cannonball for the HOH camera, but I caught the action shot.. those used to earn a "STOP THAT" from Big Brother, but not this time

Campaign and vote chats carried on all day & night again, probably for nothing: Shelly's likely going to jury tomorrow as planned all along - hamsters just like to hear themselves talk.. Adam told Rachel he knew Shelly took her doggie all along but he hadn't fessed up, which seemed like an odd campaign tactic like so many of his have been, but hey, he's still there

There may have been a qualifying BBQ Smackdown match around 6.30pm when Rachel pulled her hand back from the grill with an "ouch!" and dropped a barbecued onion a minute later, but no season has gone over three matches so far and we've already got those in the can, plus I wouldn't know how to score that: two half-points would total a full point for the grill, but that's usually reserved for defeats that singe hair or require bandaids, so we'll just call it a Smackdown post-season private exhibition event

One of the most interesting things to me at this stage of the game, considering everything that's happened recently, is that Jordan & Kalia both still claim to be faithful to their pinky-swear with each other.. granted, it hasn't been tested a lot, but I find it odd that Jordan's still good with it (if indeed she is) since Kalia's the one that nominated Jeff and tie-broke him out the door - Jordan doesn't seem to hold her accountable for that


Benz on the move again (Tuesday)

Shelly took a moment during Bikini Hour to take Rachel's doggie from its tissue box hiding place and put it under Rachel's pillow (at least I think it's Rachel's bed) - flashback 8/30 2.15pm.. feedsters remain glued to the feeds, giddy with anticipation for the inevitable discovery, and which direction it will take when it happens

Earlier, Shelly worked Rachel for a very long time, offering up her heirloom diamond ring as collateral for not nominating her in the future if Rachel votes to keep her.. Operation Sleepover Party seems to be a go, with Jordan & Kalia working out together and later Rachel & Porsche doing the same - or maybe they were just working out together.. Adam continued his loops with the various factions as did the various faction members, and he poked at the fortune teller for awhile, to no avail


"Puppies stick together"

Showtime had a fun conversation with all six of them about their comps and past seasons' hamsters, and there was also more doggie chat but it wasn't as bad as the night before.. Jordan found out that "a chubby in his pants" in Jeff's song about Adam's Cruddy didn't refer to poop - flashback 8/30 10.48pm.. Porsche & Kalia turned a Bible into a what-happened-when study aid with stickers, which led to some funny lines

When Rachel went to bed, she mentioned her little dog out of the blue to Jordan and wondered if she'd ever find it (how timely!).. Shelly talked her doggie in her ET voice through the camera hole, saying "look under your pillow" so Rachel did.. she said "yay" and that was about it.. are you freaking kidding me? No joyous reunion, no hollering about where he'd been or who had him, no fights or false blame from Shelly, just "yay".. it all had a staged feel in my opinion - flashback 8/31 12.15am.. staged or not, it was another big letdown for us, especially after Rachel stomped all over the habitat a few days ago looking for her dog after she discovered Brendon's duck was in the toilet tank, but Diary cut off that rampage - and then it was forgotten


Ratings - Spay/Neuter Your Hamsters special edition rerun

Ratings are courtesy of my dog iTrixie - she doesn't like what she's been hearing on the feeds lately

Yep, it seems like they finally gagged Adam from talking about Tonight they were talking about reading up on themselves later, and he said 'that site I go to' which is quite a switch. It was weird they let him keep doing it all season but it's even weirder they'd make him stop at this late date. Was it something I said?

Paired with Dominic - GOLDEN KEY
Paired with Shelly
Won: One week elf suit
No animal abuse stories to date - iTrixie likes him

Paired with Jeff
Paired with Rachel
Won: One week catsuit + tutu
She lets her dog sit by her shoulder sniffing out the window in the car, and one day she flew out - flashback 8/29 11.36pm

Paired with Lawon
Paired with Porsche
Won: $5k, Caribbean trip
She has lots & lots of doggie horror stories, all told with laughter, but the main one is about throwing her yorkie into a wall after he bit her - flashback 8/29 11.13pm or 8/29 12.43pm

Paired with Keith - GOLDEN KEY
Paired with Kalia
Won: $5k
Her five pound chihuahua ate one pound of chocolates "foil and all" but she didn't take him to a vet - flashback 8/29 11.41pm

Paired with Brendon
Paired with Jordan
She was properly horrified about Kalia's stories, but then she told about taking her rottweiler onto a frozen lake, and he fell through the ice - flashback 8/30 9.09pm

Paired with Cassi - GOLDEN KEY
Paired with Adam
Won: 24 hours solitary, phone call
No animal abuse stories to date - iTrixie likes her

Paired with Jordan
Won: $15k
His sense of entitlement to be there and win was as strong as the other vets, but it didn't work out for him this time either. He went out on a bitter note but he gave us his share of funny one-liners while he lasted, especially when he was losing. He had issues with Dumbledore, was a formidable opponent for the new grill and for Adam & Shelly's cigarette supplies, he won all the cash to date, and he'll probably get yet another CBS show after this.

Paired with Dick - GOLDEN KEY/TICKET
Won/used: Veto ticket
She looked & acted different this time, especially when she joked & laughed which was great to see, but she failed at her former specialty of winning vetos and she went back to whining when on the block and on slop. Like all the vets, she had a sense of entitlement but she turned on them too soon, got Dominic booted, and later evicted her teamie Lawon. She shuffled her deck and almost had an 11th hour save, but it 'literally' didn't work out.

Paired with Rachel
Won: 1 week revival
His return was twice unwelcome, especially now that he's had a year to suck the life and Vegas out of Rachel. This time he wore superhero suits, used not-funny voices, lost a toy turtle, lectured everyone, and had big goofy smiles for Big Booty & Porsche's striptease. He had a pathetic sense of entitlement and made a giant stink about Rachel calling him Buki.

Paired with Kalia
Won: nothing
My favorite hamster in years, he came out with his best stuff late nights so many missed it, but he gave great Diary, wore kooky outfits and officiated at the trashbag wedding with tremendous style & flair. He caught flak for pawning himself out the door but his teamies encouraged it and put him up, so it's not all on him. He was Lawonderful with a fantastic laugh and he'll be missed.

Paired with Adam
Won: nothing
He was the first casualty of Daniele's too hard/too fast strategy but he didn't help himself by not brushing up more on how BB works. He told a lot of pointless lies about his modeling, schooling, virginity and then fessed up to them, which might have come back to bite him anyway. His adolescent jokes & behavior did nothing for me.

Paired with Shelly
Won: nothing
She started off okay and had Dominic in her pocket, but Shelly befriended her so well that when they were both nominated, Cassi just laid down and died. She complained a lot, failed to fulfill her catfight potential, and was the third model in a row to be booted out second. She had the best Mirror-Face since BB5/7 Jase.

Paired with Porsche
Won: nothing
He claimed to be a fan since BB1 but even watching only CBS, he clearly wasn't paying attention: who throws a veto comp when they're on the block? He went in with a clearly outlined womanizing strategy which failed miserably, he set off another BB Weinergate, and he panicked himself right out the door.

Paired with Daniele
Won: nothing
We haven't had a premiere night no-show since BB9 Jacob, and we haven't had a mysterious early exit since BB9 Neil. These pairs twist seasons just seem to complicate things for production. No real word yet on why Dick's gone (and there may never be) but he sure was looking rough in the premiere.

News & updates

See Upcoming Events on the right sidebar for my best guess at the remaining schedule. They're taping an eviction on Tuesday, September 6 that will air Wednesday, September 7. It's possible feeds might be blocked for awhile due to that and Showtime could run three hours from earlier in the day on Tuesday night so as not to "give away" what we'll already know by then anyway. I hope they don't do that, but they have in the past.

See my Linkage tab for Twitters of dozens of former hamsters as well as this season's evictees to date
