|This site is about the Big Brother 14 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

They're calling Diary 'the wizard' and 'convention' is pre-show sequester.
Ashley revealed they wear earpieces for nominations, presumably in case prompting is needed for 'Hamster A, you are safe' and 'Thank you, Hamster B'.
CBS shows are Sundays and Wednesdays at 8pm, and live eviction Thursdays at 9pm.
Big Brother After Dark airs midnight to 3am nightly (1am to 4am Thursdays) on Showtime (SHO2) in USA, and on Global Reality and/or Slice in Canada at various times - check your local listings.
BB14 prizes are the same: $500k for the winner and $50k for 2nd place. The others probably still earn $750 a week including pre-show hotel and jury sequester.
The coach of the winner gets $100k. Returning veterans probably get more weekly stipend and/or a flat amount to show up.
The habitat has 53 cameras (up one) and 98 microphones (up three).
The recorded in-house announcements are the voice of producer Don Wollman.
All feeds stay on one 'scene' when someone's in Diary.
The Glass House premiered June 18 on ABC and will run for 10 episodes. The winner will get $250,000 - half the usual BB winning amount.
Apparently the glass hamsters go into hotel sequester on weekends - no, I don't know why.
Big Brother Canada premieres February 2013.

Corn-ho (Wednesday 7/18)The waffles & whispers continued unchecked, and I had to put out a request for diagrams to keep track of the various alliances - luckily several good people responded, see Links of the Day below.. I think we're finally at a point where we can safely predict Kara will go 5-3, unless Ashley makes it a 4-4 tie, in which Frank will go - but don't hold me to it, especially after the all-night study sessions shifted the teams around again
We had a long fishies segment during which it sounds like they had their HOH lockdown that usually happens Thursday mornings for live show staff preparations downstairs.. the fishies swam right up till 6pm BB time, ending conveniently when the East coast airing on CBS ended.. maybe it was coincidence, or maybe it was an attempt to force us all to watch the show and bring the viewer numbers come back up.. what they don't realize is a) most everyone watches the CBS version anyway; b) some Westies and Middles got ripped off and had nothing to watch for the hour; and c) the other Westies and Middles are all watching via two or three Eastern tvs, which won't help their ratings at all
Britney gave Willie a long talking-to about running his mouth everywhere, and she kept at it even after he acknowledged and apologized - Flashback 7/18 8.36pm.. then he kept at it afterwards anyway when she wasn't looking.. they started up a skit over pool about Trixie, the sleazy girl at the pool hall, confusing my papillon who didn't know why the little voices kept calling her name
They got their cornhole game back ("corn-ho" per Willie) and some thought that might be tomorrow's HOH comp, but around 1.30am they had a loud alarm and announcement from "BBTV" that a burgler had entered the house (see below).. they had 60 seconds to get to the tv each time the alarm went off, and were shown short video clips of the masked man going around the house and moving things, gesturing, falling over the sofa, etc so it's likely going to be a memory comp about that - sayings were also involved
Flashback times for the alerts, short fishies while they watched their videos, and discussion after are 7/19 at approximately 1.30am, 1.58am, 2.01am, 2.29am, 3.19am, 4.01am, 4.05am, 4.10am, 4.31am, 4.35am, 5.18am - remember to adjust Flashback for your timezone if you aren't Pacific.. teams were studying as teams at first, but merged later to Team Boogie with Team Janelle, and Team Dan with Team Britney.. Boogie slept through it all
I also posted today a chat transcript with BB13 Adam Poch answering questions from Hamsterwatchers - many thanks to the Heavy Metal Teddy for his time!
Burglars (Tuesday 7/17)Willie's house meeting happened as planned: he assembled the newbie cast around his HOH bed and told them they should play for themselves and each other and not their coaches.. it wasn't as dramatic as hoped for, in my opinion anyway - Flashback 7/17 10:54am to decide for yourself.. the coaches (sans Boogie who slept through it all) hung out in the backyard acting like bemused parents whose kids decided to have a secret No Parents Allowed club in their bedroom, which isn't far off from the truth
We had a peculiar leak from the pantry: two non-hamsters were in there, one of them moving things around and the other standing around in a burglar suit.. maybe they were setting up a cutesy burglary segment for an HOH Q&A about missing items, or maybe one of the staffers just likes to wear costumes.. that was followed by a very long fishies interlude, making us think they were having a super fun secret activity we'd hear about later, but no
Instead, Willie was locked in his HOH room, leaving them to wonder if they had a super fun secret activity coming up, but no.. when Willie walked through to Diary carrying a little bag, they thought he was going on a field trip, but no.. he went back to HOH and emerged shortly after saying he'd written his blog and gotten the camera - that usually happens Wednesday afternoons, but primetimers got to share in the frivolity this time.. maybe TPTB thought it was a little reward for putting up with all the fishies, but no
War of the Froot LoopsThe habitat simmered all day with gametalk here, gossip there, parannoying everywhere, with some of it leaning toward trashtalk.. there was a non-incident in HOH where Willie impersonated Wil for a minute while talking to Frank, using a high voice to do so - Flashback 7/17 2.13pm
Out of everything that's being thrown around in there, that's the one grew legs until it had turned into Willie was gaybashing Wil and using homophobic slurs about him.. that got back to Wil who had a mini meltdown and a few tears, but later said it was as much a pressure release as anything.. it also got back to Willie (naturally), who was not at all amused and demanded to have people brought to his room to clear it all up
When that didn't happen, he actually got out of bed and descended the staircase, stormed into the backyard and laid into Frank, who he saw as responsible for the Telephone game gone bad.. it was great fun for all of us and probably for Frank, who grew up watching his dad play a phenomenal wrestling villain on tv - he didn't seem fazed by any of it tonight
For some reason Boogie showed up and jumped into it, and it devolved into the three of them yelling about Froot Loops - really, I couldn't make this up if I tried.. Willie, HOH and Fruit Loops all trended USA on Twitter for a bit, it was that good and that bizarre.. Flashback 7/17 10.25pm for the main event
Meanwhile, Ian was pacing the kitchen, sighing and muttering about wanting to lock himself in the arcade and that he came here for fun.. that might be my tagline but I stay safely on this side of the two-way mirrors.. he lost a notch of superfan cred with that one, but I'm still pulling for him

NEWS & UPDATESAn odd chain of events began with a hoax about pre-show leaked feeds and ended with Lane getting nekkid, hence it's on my adult page.
Flashback is currently using your local time. Until it's fixed to BB/Pacific for all, adjust mentioned Flashback times to your local timezone. All times mentioned on this site are BB/Pacific time.
The Glass House added six hours of feeds to their schedule the week BB14 premiered - coincidence? I think not. The new blocks are 9pm to midnight ET (6 to 9pm PT) Tuesdays & Wednesdays, on top of the current free live stream that runs 11pm to 3am ET (8pm to midnight PT) Mondays, and 3pm to 4pm ET (noon to 1pm PT) Tuesdays through Thursdays.
You can still rewatch the BB13 feeds on SuperPass, plus they continue to generate lots of original Big Brother and other reality content. A three-month subscription is $39.99 (or $14.99 for a montly subscription) and includes Flashback, mobile for iPhone, iPad, and Android phones, and $10 worth of free music every month: sign up now so you don't miss a thing!
