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


Shelly evicted 2-1
Rachel is Head of Household
Nobody is nominated
Nobody is Have-not
Duos are over (again)


Take a swig whenever anyone says there should be jury house feeds



Big Brother 13 at iTunesicon
Season Pass or individual episodes

Duos were reinstated for one week 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.

She joked with Rachel & Jordan while they primped for tonight's show, like she does, but she'd seemed resigned to leaving since last night or possibly before.. she played the hell out of this game and took a lot of heat for it from those she turned on, but she did what she felt she had to do and she made amends for the way she did it

The way she did it caused problems for many out here as well, but many hamsters before her have done the same, and they didn't lead to the kind of thing that went well past the "game" and human decency like we saw with Shelly.. Kalia's the one who nominated Jeff and tie-broke him out the door, but Shelly made Jordan cry and lose her temper, and apparently that's unforgivable in some eyes - so be it

I was impressed by Shelly's gameplay from the start and I had fun "translating" some of her Shellyspeak here & there, but the fun went out of that when things turned so ugly.. I wish she'd been able to keep her game under wraps a bit longer: along with her incessant cleaning, she was the most "gaming" hamster we've had yet in the mom role, and it says a lot that it took the others 55 days to figure her out.. she went out 2-1, got cheers as they all do, and admitted to Julie she made an "early big dumb move".. she'll be missed

Rachel won the HOH comp, which began on tonight's show but will be shown on Sunday's - it was a race through goo, like they like to make them do.. Pandora's Box will be back with a "celebrity twist" per Julie, which will make one of them in particular "very happy" per Allison Grodner - speculation is already running rampant that Tori Spelling will show up


Back to our story

Rachel got her goodies which included pics of Brendon of course (some from last year's HOH pics on CBS site, nicely framed) and a letter from her mom about wedding planning.. we missed them entering the room due to a quick blurry flash of a staff person in the pantry, #30 on the goof tally.. Kalia made her usual post-comp run to the first aid box - I don't know what her problem was this time

Rachel was happy with her win but not gloaty - she has learned something this summer.. Jordan was gloomy despite her safety, telling Rachel she was disappointed with her comp performance again, and that she didn't like it when people said Jeff pulled her through and now they'll say Rachel pulled her through.. she sat out card playing, for which they're still using their homemade teabag cards

They got a meager booze delivery and had a congratulatory toast to themselves for making it to Final Five, as well they should.. game chat happened here and there, like it does - Kalia & Porsche will probably be nominated tomorrow


Ratings - Donuty Goo edition

Ratings are based on entertainment value
VTE = Voted to evict

Their tweets are becoming as cryptic as all their other agendas lately, what with Allison and Julie (and/or their social media minions) tweeting all kinds of spoilers and teasers lately. I have my own theories on what it all means, but I've often been accused of being a conspiracy theorist when it comes to BB. Anyway, it's possible and even likely the tweets don't mean anything more than face value: teasers to get people to watch their TV show. Thursday's wasn't a bad one once again, even though the misdirection about keeping Shelly was obviously just that to anyone who'd been paying attention, but Shelly's promised ring being a fake was a nice revelation. The jury footage was so many smiles after we'd been led to expect blood, but those three vets are getting a nice paycheck and they know it. I can do without the staged entrances and watching them watch comps we've already seen, but that's what we get at this time of the season.

Paired with Dominic - GOLDEN KEY
Paired with Shelly
Won: One week elf suit
No vote (nominee)
Once again, he didn't win but once again, he didn't really need to: the only comps that really matter in BB begin now. He kept it light through the night with his usual good spirits and banter, and really, what else do we need?

Paired with Jeff
Paired with Rachel
Won: One week catsuit + tutu
VTE Shelly
Unlike fellow loser Adam, she beat herself up for losing another comp that she too didn't need to win, and she moped around all night and went to bed early because she's safe - what's up with that? That kind of behavior does not make for good hamsterwatching at all and earned her a solid negative, but she rebounded to neutral when she waiting for Rachel to come out of her 3am Diary call to run damage control after Kalia's monologue. But where's our silly girl with the funny faces and goofy voices?

Paired with Lawon
Paired with Porsche
Won: $5k, Caribbean trip
VTE Adam
Another lost comp and another injury of some sort, that's Kalia. Also typical, she followed Rachel up to HOH when she went up to bed, and talked her ear off for a couple hours, campaigning for safety that isn't going to happen. We also got her life story again, and everything else she's ever said in there again. Her non-stop talking is easy to ignore, but she lost me for good with the throwing the dog into the wall story and every repetition of it since, and I hope she's gone Tuesday.

Paired with Keith - GOLDEN KEY
Paired with Kalia
Won: $5k
No vote (HOH)
She had some good lines on tonight's show, a long whispery chat with Adam while Kalia was bending Rachel's ear, and she issued a deadpan 'I broke the fridge' when the bottom shelf came out. That's all I got.

Paired with Brendon
Paired with Jordan
VTE Shelly
Big ups for winning another HOH when she needed it, which is her specialty, and for not being all gloaty about it, which is not - but it's really nice to see these kinds of changes in her. Her blank expression and folded arms body language during Kalia's spiel seemed to say it all, but she sounded like she had fallen for a bit of it when Jordan paid a 3am visit. Rachel on her own has proven to be a really bright, logical, reasonable, and not unlikeable hamster - quite the opposite of what she's like when Buki's around.

Paired with Cassi - GOLDEN KEY
Paired with Adam
Won: 24 hours solitary, phone call
She'd said she didn't want to fill the mom role but she represented the demo well, being a friend to most of them when they were down and handing out good advice. She also bashed with the best of them, smoked and cleaned non-stop, and she introduced the hilarious stealth hammock creep. She took a lot of flak for things she did and didn't do, but she played the game the way it was designed to be played, and it took them 55 days to figure her out.

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

Dick Donato had emergency gall bladder surgery - best wishes to him for a speedy recovery!

See Upcoming Events on the right sidebar for 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
