|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

The untwist resulted in no eviction, and all coaches entering the game. Boogie was the only one who didn't vote to enter. If all had said no, there would have been a hamster revival.
Willie was ejected for head-butting Joe. Threats & verbal attacks are legal - aggressive physical contact is not.
They're calling pre-show sequester 'convention' or 'knitting convention', and they're calling Diary 'the wizard' or 'dairy queen'.
Ashley revealed they wear earpieces for nominations, at least early on.
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 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 still earn $750 a week including pre-show hotel and jury sequester.
The coach of the winner would have gotten $100k without the untwist. Returning veterans got $20k 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.
The glass hamsters go into hotel sequester on weekends.

Well done, Hamsterwatchers (Sunday 8/12)I don't know for a fact but I suspect our message was heard by The Powers That Be, thanks to all the solidarity and support from you lovely people.. we'll see how the numbers come in on Monday, but they seemed to ease up on the excessive fishies for a couple hours before the show hit the Eastern timezone, and there's no way they weren't aware of all the #bbstrike tweets.. I thank and salute you all, and don't ease up on them if they slide backward rather than upward
I'll end my strike now and resume daily episodes here Monday, but I don't think I'll have much to work with: this remains a very dull group, and As Danielle's World Turns has been all but cancelled by the Zingbot.. nothing much happened Sunday, other than Joe continues to make salsa from anything & everything, and Dan showed up in a banana suit for a bit - I don't know why.. he was trying to hoax them about Pandora's Box and Boogie said he'd brought it in with him
On the other hand, weren't those Olympics closing ceremonies something? London knows how to do pageantry and it knows how to rock.. RIP Freddie
CALL TO ACTION (Saturday 8/11)There's a lot of problems with this season, but the most immediate is the constant fishies and the constant rule-breaking by the hamsters that cause them, which punish us rather than them - it is worse than ever this year.. if you're fed up with watching the aquarium, let them know by not watching or DVRing Sunday's show on CBS
We're a small percentage of total viewers but the numbers have dropped enough this season (even before Olympics) that we could make a dent, and get their attention in the only way they listen: RATINGS
Pass the word along and use hashtags #bbstrike and #bb14.. you won't miss a thing: it'll be Janelle's eviction recap; Britney, Joe, Shane, Danielle losing the Have-not comp; Frank ditching his costume; and Wil and Joe being nominated.. if you still need another reason to speak out via your TV set about the total lack of integrity of this show, Flashback 8/7 11.38am to hear Boogie say how BB producer Don Wollman has been a mentor of his for 11 years - that's really the straw that broke my camel's back, and then Thursday's Diary leak on top of it
Strike bulletin #2Even if the site wasn't on strike, I'd have nothing to post.. even with 11 of them at this late date, the feeds are as dull as they get for Final Four or Three, and they continue to be riddled with fishies for the most ridiculous things including talk of prior hamsters, prior seasons, pre-show sequester, and "I did my DR earlier".. they even waited til after Showtime last night for Frank to strip off his catsuit, and they blocked that from the feeds
All this puts myself and all BB sites who sell the feeds in a very awkward position, but a reminder is in order: the blocks aren't SuperPass's fault - Ms Grodner and her minions control what goes out on the feeds.. it also makes it hard for us who cover this thing to keep going when things are so dull - again, that's down to Ms Grodner and her minions who did the casting and came up with the twist/untwist
I've realized I should have demands to keep this strike going.. feeds without fishies seems reasonable but unlikely - maybe I should hold out for the grill
Daily facts update: Frank, Joe, Wil were joined by Boogie, Ashley, Jenn for the veto comp, plus Shane and his magic ticket, Ian hosted, and Frank won.. Zingbot showed up around 6.50pm but of course was blocked from the feeds - apparently he collapsed from the heat during or after the comp
The Producer's New ShowAnd now, a story - inspired by and with apologies to Hans Christian Andersen
Strike bulletin #1 (Friday 8/10)When word reached the habitat about my Hamsterwatch strike, they were as shocked and dismayed as many of you.. Britney took it especially hard
I'm not sure how to go about this strike thing - my manual turned out to be just a pamphlet, and a Chinese take-out menu at that.. I gather I'm supposed to have demands, but expecting an end to fishies will never fly, let alone expecting a game with integrity or a TV edit that reflects reality.. I'd settle for fun feeds, or even dull feeds that stayed on more than 10 minutes without fishies, but hopes there are slim as well
However, since they chose this day - one riddled with more fishies than we've had since the first week - to tweet "Sign up 4 the live feeds &don't miss a minute of the action!" (sic) along with a now-stale clip of Ian's dog day, I feel I must stay on the picket line a bit longer.. they also responded to Reality Blurred about the leaky, using words and tone that caused even those casually following the scandal to say they "doth protest too much".. personally, I'm shocked they openly admitted they've got people working 19-hour shifts.. also I'm still stuck on Boogie's statement Tuesday: "Don Wollman's been a mentor of mine, 11 years together"
I am still tweeting (I can't go cold turkey off this crack) but with more snarky than updates - it IS supposed to be fun, right?.. I'm truly touched by the support and solidarity from all who have reached out to me, and I sincerely thank you all for that
Thus, as a small concession and token of good faith, the basic facts since I hit the picket line are as follows: Janelle was evicted 8-1 with the 1 being Joe, and Frank won the Head of Household Q&A.. Britney, Danielle, Shane, Joe are Have-nots, with candy canes and cod (where do you get caseloads of candy canes in August?), and Frank nominated Wil and Joe, despite saying last night he'd take up Shane's offer to be pawned
Hamsterwatch is on strike (Thursday 8/9)I've been saying all week that the only thing that would prevent Janelle from meeting Julie again would be a public outing of Dan's many dealings and/or a last minute Coup de Pandora.. The Powers That Be went ahead and did both this morning
Around 10.08am, Dan was called to Diary.. a minute or so later, the Diary guy could be heard greeting him - that happens now & then and they usually cut the feeds quickly when it does.. however this time, that greet could be heard in some rooms in the habitat - that's a first, I think? Those in the kitchen and dining area didn't react, but Ian was heard saying "Whoa whoa whoa dude! DR!" and Boogie got up and left the bedroom he was in, possibly to let them know (even though control room sees & hears everything in there), and then the feeds went to fishies
Just a glitch perhaps? Perhaps not.. Joe later said "after I heard his DR this morning, we had to talk," and "that's quite the DR you had going there, Dan".. Boogie later complained about "that fucking blasting the Diaries" and others chuckled, with Jenn contributing "get your buttons in order".. still later, Janelle asked that Joe please not call a house meeting about that? or something else.. I don't know
This season was a shambles before it started and it's gone downhill fast since.. most of the attention for last week's Reset fiasco has been focused on the coaches entering the game, and many have forgotten or overlooked the fact that Frank's certain eviction conveniently didn't happen - why? They usually drop twists and untwists after they give someone the boot, since a week has just been spent making the boot happen
So I'm on strike for a bit, since I love the concept of the show and the feeds, but something was leaked to some of them that could affect another certain eviction, and that's beyond wrong.. personally I don't really care if this does or doesn't affect tonight's outcome, but if a technical problem let them hear a Diary session in the habitat, especially Dan's, they knew it and would have stopped the session unless they wanted it to be heard
I'm tired of being part of the free publicity machine that fuels this show and getting nothing from them for doing so - just a bit of recognition from them to acknowledge the many, many sites that keep the interest alive would be a nice gesture.. I invite my fellow BB sites to join me in a strike but will understand if others don't
I'm also personally shocked, offended and hurt that of my 23,000+ Twitter followers, nobody thought to @ me and let me know about it - I do have to sleep sometimes, and I can't scroll through thousands of timelines to see if I missed anything while catching a nap.. I get hundreds of questions (which I try to answer when I can) and hundreds of tweets with choice words about how much people love or hate this one or that one, but not a single "@hamsterwatch hey they heard Dan's Diary in the house this morning! check around 10am" or similar.. so call me bitter (I am, a bit) but I'm taking a little break from watching the feeds for people - that's not my job and it was never my intent.. I'll tweet what I want like everyone else for awhile, or not
Update: The leak didn't affect the outcome, but that was never my point
One more update: This wasn't a first - there was a short leak to the habitat in BB10 - also with Dan - the coincidences just keep coming.. thanks @RochesterGuy for that, and thanks @MissCleoBB14 for the graphic
