|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 BB14 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. Kara and Jenn may have gotten more.
The coach of the winner would have gotten $100k without the untwist. Returning veterans got $20k to show up, and/or a higher stipend after the untwist.
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 ran for 10 episodes. The winner got $250,000 - half the usual BB winning amount. The glass hamsters went into hotel sequester on weekends.
Big Brother Canada premieres February 2013.

WH-WHUM-squeeeeak-croak (Saturday 9/8)That's the song that Ian's hammock was singing Saturday evening.. later it turned to "ba-doo-boo-WHAP".. it's mesmerizing, but interferes greatly with trying to understand what he's muttering to himself as he swings
They stayed mostly in bed today until the trivia took them away at 1.40pm for the veto comp, and it kept them away for three and a half hours, even though they said later that it was a ten minute comp - thanks a bunch, evil Feedmasters! To top it off, they'd been done for so long, they weren't even talking about it anymore, and it took another half hour til we found out Shane won the veto.. he also won a card that said Mystery Prize but they don't know what it is.. apparently Jenn got snacks somehow, so this turned out to be nothing probably, but it gave us something to talk about for awhile since the hamsters weren't doing anything.. the comp was a timed puzzle, physical, with platforms
Dan changed to his Memphis Bob hat for awhile (I think it represents loyalty and "do not turn on me"), and he quacked bars of the fishies music to his (sort of) fellow Quackers.. yep, the Mist was as not-subtle as that today, yet it seemed to waft right over their heads, again
There's probably a few sick joke captions about cults and drinking Kool-aid and the like for this cap - or there would be if Dan was playing the waiter role in it, so I guess it's a good thing he isn't.. actually they were playing Guess What I Made This Gross Drink From.. Ian practically died from one concoction, and Danielle almost fell over laughing at that
Speaking of Dan's Extra Strength Mist, Dan got Danielle to suggest to him that she might volunteer to be pawned - we'll see.. Shane has yet to be taken up on his many pawn offers yet - maybe Dan will talk him into not using his veto
Dingo's report cardI've never gone back to compare my pre-feeds first impressions to what came later but I thought it might be fun, and they aren't doing anything interesting anyway.. so in the interest of transparency, disclosure, and other trendy buzzwords, and returning to my Hasty Judgement ratings from the day before the premiere, let's see how I did with my Most Likelies
Ashley - Most likely to find herself without an alliance: A
Clearly all her plans for Snow White, Family, Huge, and Secret alliances fell through, and she's the only juror who didn't figure heavily into the various alliance diagrams
Boogie - Most likely to squick feedsters: B
He was slightly better than expected, at least for awhile, but still squicky to those of us who are so inclined with him
Britney - Most likely to make us laugh: B+
She did provide most of the comedy this season but she held it back at first by gaming far too hard and far too serious, and she never did do an updated Just The Tip
Dan - Most likely to shout in Diary, again: A-
He's still at it, but he had unexpected competition from Joe, whose Diary decibels were one notch louder
Danielle - Most likely to pinkyswear: A+
Check the Extracurricular Tally: 6 of 9 pinkies to date are hers.. I also anticipated hearing about her parent issues back before the show started, and scoffed at her announcement that she'd play an honest game
Frank - Most likely to have his hair become its own character: B-
While his hair was indeed unique and a frequent topic of conversation, it was usually more in passing than anything else.. now if I'd predicted he'd have a giant teddy bear with matching cheerleader skirt and carrot suit, I'd go buy a lotto ticket
Ian - Most likely to perform stupid human tricks: A
I never expected him to inspire me to turn hammock into a verb, and he kicked himself in the face a few times too
Janelle - Most likely to polarize fans: A
Jenn - Most likely to sing: C-
For a pro musician, she hasn't sung nearly as often as I was expecting, but her constant humming of the fishies song 'doo-doo-doodoo-doodoo-doo' saves me from a D
Jodi - Most likely to gain weight: I
Incomplete, as we'll never know.. however she has proven to be friendly, interactive, and very funny on Twitter - check her out and say hi @jodisbox
Joe - Most likely to be a different guy on the feeds than he is in Diary & Thursday live shows: C
He was a whole lot louder in Diary and often funny on Thursday shows, but he was loud and funny the rest of the time too.. if he'd kept wearing his royal blue chef shirt every time Julie said 'hello houseguests' this would be a B
JoJo - Most likely to jump into fights that don't involve her (and hopefully a big one with Jenn): D
While she stirred up a lot of stuff, she sadly disappointed when it came to backing up her bark with some bite.. I have no doubt it would have come out had she stuck longer, but she didn't
Kara - Most likely to distract Ian from his game: C
I don't think there was much of that, at least not after the first pre-feeds days, but Ian's line after her eviction raises this grade from an F to a C just for its pure Ian-ness: 'The fact that a Playboy Playmate was one bed over - what the fuck'
Shane - Most likely to have a mirror-face: D
He's not nearly as stuck on his looks as much as his fans are, and he seems to use a mirror as a functional and normal piece of grooming equipment.. Danielle on the other hand has raised mirror-face to a whole new level
Wil - Most likely to inspire hair envy (from females): D
While his hair was fabulous on special occasions like Thursdays, his habit of poking and twiddling at his extensions were not envy-inspiring
Willie - Most likely to be not as expected: A
Again, I've never seen Russell on Survivor so I didn't have any expectations based on that, but I'm sure that no matter what anyone's expectations of Willie were, nobody predicted he'd start head-butting and throwing pork rinds, get kicked off the show, and then get arrested the same week
All in all, not the best report card, but not awful either.. I did really well with my Danielle predictions
Another day, another Pandora rerun (Friday 9/7)As I predicted, Pandora came back yet again today.. the big ? offered Ian "a message from someone who loves you" - that turned out to be Rachel, again.. chop of tomorrow's bride-to-be in this year's habitat by @MissCleoBB14
Ian got a video message from Rachel ("something bad" in Pandora-speak) plus aother $4,000 (not so bad), and the others got video messages from loved ones at home ("something good").. Ian was just fine with it, saying he'd just had three letters from home, and the others were pleased as well, especially Jenn who was thrilled and touched to see her mom.. Danielle seemed deeply effected by hearing her mom give her props - say what you will about Danielle, but emotional trainwrecks usually don't get that way by themselves.. we DO NOT KNOW what went on in her home (and it's not our business) but I think we can all relate to "family issues" to one degree or another.. she's not evil, just a messed up kid that CBS had no business putting on this show with the amount of scrutiny it involves, and they knew it - but they did it anyway
They got their teeny table, one hamster earlier than usual.. Dan & Shane cleaned out the fridge.. the noob on the fishies switch today blocked shoutouts to Wil and talk about Frank & Joe bringing DVDs of comps to the jury - how much more asinine and/or unaware of the show they work for can they get?.. Big Brother started running the same random factoid announcements they've run for the last few seasons, and Dan lost a fun & light debate with Ian over how useful calculus is
Ian held quickie pre-nom meetings at his hammock - so quick, they were more like speed-dating than the marathon yaps we've become used to, fortunately.. he nominated Jenn and Shane, as planned
Danielle was upset after noms, as usual - she said Jenn snapped at her, and later Jenn told Dan about her famous temper (that we haven't seen) - I don't know if she really did snap at Danielle, or at someone else, or just in general at being nominated again.. Shane was extra super perky after noms: he bounced off the walls, amused Danielle out of her latest slump, and worked on the janky Ikea cupboard doors
They had to make their own dinner (RIP Joe) - they settled for microwave food, PBJ, and/or cereal.. a second, smaller Froot Loops battle threatened to break out between Shane & Danielle but it was just more of their usual junk.. they also wrestled awhile, but she was dressed more appropriately this time.. the five played cards, talked Pokemon, talked All-Stars 2 casting, whispered a lot in various pairs even though nobody's around to listen in anymore, and they speculated about the veto comp since they were locked in since late afternoon.. most are expecting Morphomatic so they also studied the photo wall
I added yet another former hamster to my adults page, BB5 Will Wikle this time.. as always, do not click if you're underage, at work, or of the prudish persuasion

NEWS & UPDATESAlong with your $1 text votes and the ability to increase ad rates across CBS.com due to increased traffic from your free online votes, CBS now has an extra $100k that was previously announced as the winning coach's prize. PLEASE STOP VOTING ON THEIR POINTLESS POLLS. Don't even get me started on their idiotic Flock to Unlock traffic and Twitter spam generator.
Big Brother 14 will tape an eviction on Tuesday, September 11 and the feeds will likely be off for +/- 30 hours, with Showtime running three hours from Tuesday morning on Tuesday night, but I will post on this site and tweet who got evicted on Tuesday evening. That taped eviction will air on Wednesday, September 12, with another regular live eviction on Thursday, September 13. That leaves us with three hamsters to go into finale Wednesday, September 19. See Upcoming Events in right sidebar for a more complete schedule.
Congrats to Rachel Reilly & Brendon Villegas who finally got married on Saturday, September 8! The first Big Brother hamster-to-hamster wedding was attended by many BB alumni, with Matt Hoffman reportedly officiating. The wedding will air on WeTV in December, but I doubt it will be better than their trashbag wedding last year with Lawon officiating like no other could - it's still there on BB13 Flashback 8/2 10.36pm.
Congrats also to Julian Clary who won UK Celebrity BB! The comedian and self-described "renowned homosexual" took the publicly voted title on September 7 after a three-week run.
BB Australia began August 12 and is still underway. Like UK BB and UK Celeb BB, it doesn't have feeds anymore, but see Links of the Day for quick videos of air shows and related talk shows for all of them.
Evictee/ejectee Twitters are @WilHeuser, @JanellePierzina, @JoJoDoll1, @HantzBB, @KaraMonaco, @Jodisbox. Imposters are out there - these are the real ones. See my Linkage tab above or my Twitter list for more former hamster Twitters from all seasons.
You can still rewatch the BB13 feeds and Flashback 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!
