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

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 probably 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.

Celebrity Big Brother 2012

The UK's Channel 5 kicked off the newest celebrity hamster show on January 5.. typical for reality tv on both sides of the Atlantic, they use the word "celebrity" loosely, but it could still shape up to be fun.. their highlights shows are generally better than ours (read: timely, accurate and often wild), and they'll air nightly.. they also have a talk show, "Big Brother's Bit on the Side", and there will be some live feeds after each eviction.. you can watch all this online as it airs in the UK, and most shows will probably have next-day reruns as well.. see Links of the Day below for more info, and huge thanks once again to @vip__tv for letting us join the fun

NOTE: UK time is 5 hours ahead of Eastern, and 8 hours ahead of Pacific time zones

I won't be doing regular updates here as I just don't have time, but I may post here and/or Twitter and Facebook now & then if I can.. the official site already has lots of good info that they'll continue to post, and @BBUKLive tweets news from inside the British habitat as it happens

Update Denise won the show (somehow) on the January 27 finale.. congrats to her, I guess

Big Brother is big in Britain: 8 to 10 of the top ten worldwide trending topics on Twitter during the premiere were about it.. there's some history of spats between some of the cast and catfights seem inevitable.. here are some tidbits about who they are:

Natalie Cassidy - Evicted 5th - pictured above - best known for playing Sonia for 14 years on "EastEnders", a hugely popular night-time soap opera.. she was also on "Strictly Come Dancing", the original "Dancing with the Stars" (it also stars Len and Bruno, who commute when both shows are running simultaneously).. Natalie's an early favorite after Day 1, having performed the first task assigned by BB extremely well

Kristina & Karissa Shannon - Evicted 7th - twins, Playboy models and former girlfriends of Hugh Hefner.. reality fans know them from the final season of "Girls Next Door" as Bridget & Kendra's replacements, but without the success.. they're counted and treated as one hamster

Andrew Stone - Evicted 1st - Brits know him as a dancer on "Pineapple Dance Studio".. he makes a point of saying he's not gay - you be the judge

Gareth Thomas - Evicted 9th - aka Alfie, he's an openly gay rugby player who's friends with the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge - you may know them better as Prince William and Kate Middleton - he was a guest at their wedding

Michael Madsen - Evicted 8th - you'll never forget him as Mr. Blonde if you've seen Reservoir Dogs.. he's also been in Kill Bill, Free Willy, and a slew of other movies and tv roles.. he was once married to Cher's half-sister

Nicola McLean - Evicted 6th - a Page 3 girl, which means she's a topless model in daily newspapers

Kirk Norcross - Evicted 4th - known for playing himself, a nightclub owner, in "TOWIE" ("The Only Way is Essex"), a semi-scripted reality show

Frankie Cocozza - Runner-up - he was on the British (original) "X Factor" but was booted for drugs.. his hair is more Bieber than Bieber's

Natasha Giggs - Evicted 2nd - another model, this one is known for being married to a footballer (soccer player) while having a long-running affair with his brother, also a footballer

Romeo - Evicted 7th - I was expecting Li'l Romeo but this is a different rapper, known for his work with So Solid Crew as well as solo stuff

Georgia Salpa - Evicted 3rd - yet another model (and/or a long-lost Kardashian sister)

Denise Welch - Winner - the cougar role, she's a successful actress best known for playing Natalie in "Coronation Street" (the other huge primetime soap), and more recently as a panelist on the talk show "Loose Women"

You can find out more about all of them on the "Celebrity Big Brother" official site, Wikipedia, and a zillion other websites.. Google is your friend
