|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.

Mystery day (Tuesday 9/18)Trivia hit for "The Talk", complete with a promo for "tonight's" live show at 9/8 Central, even though the next/only remaining show is tomorrow at 9.30/8.30 Central, so two goofs there but counted as one for entry #24 on their tally, and I went easy on them this year
This morning's event turned out to be for tomorrow's "The Talk" which will be a Survivor/BB special.. our trio hasn't given up much about what went on, likely due to being strictly forbidden to discuss it.. they did say they saw the show intro, and Danielle said she'd like to have heard from Julie if they're well-liked (surprise).. our winner will also be on Thursday.. the trivia returned for much of the afternoon, possibly to give them directions and/or rehearse the various combinations of possible F2 scenarios
When the feeds finally returned, Ian had popped a beer and Dan was wearing his Memphis Bob hat (which signifies loyalty, plus "I'm winning") and they were mostly silent.. not much happened the rest of the day, other than Dan continued to keep Dan & Danielle mostly separated, and continued to promise F2 to them both.. I don't expect much for tomorrow except a lot of trivia, but I'll post it if anything does happen.. my take on BB14 will remain here for posterity, along with all seasons since BB5 - links are at the bottom of each page
But don't run off as soon as the winner's crowned! Check back here tomorrow night and a day or two after for interviews, updates, and the like.. as always, thanks for visiting the site and for encouraging my behavior
How to pick a winnerIt's time to haul out this old chestnut seasonal favorite and gentle reminder again.. please to enjoy
I've always maintained it doesn't matter a bit who gets the money unless you're a second cousin or better, but some Hamsterwatchers seem to care who wins, so I once again present the following for your rooting enjoyment.. after all, feedsters are more qualified to make a selection than the bitter jurors - we don't see any relevant Diary footage anymore since they record pro & con versions of everything now and they don't air any of the meaty stuff, but we've seen far more than the jury so they too need to use one of these methods:
Played the best game
This is the popular, politically-correct method that everyone claims to use, but nobody really does.. Dan would seem to have the obvious edge here but Ian's right up there and has won a lot more comps.. even Danielle's game was first rate, whether you want to admit it or not: she survived the nominee chair four times, she was the only female HOH and won it twice, along with the veto both of those weeks, plus she was in multiple alliances all along without anyone catching on, and she stuck with her coach/teamie and did what he said to do before and after the reset, which is more than most of them.. the fact that both Ian & Danielle were hoodwinked by Dan at the end would seem to put him in the lead here, but nearly every 'game' falls into one of the other categories so don't feel pressured to root for him through some misguided urge to be PC
Lied the best/most
All three are on nearly equal footing here with their ongoing secret alliance lies, but this one's a little squirrely as it crosses over into ethical/unethical territory, and that leads to arguments about politics and/or religion, and that leads to flame wars every time.. BB2/7 Dr. Will is the exception here: he won by skirting the moral issues and flat-out lied about everything except the fact that he was lying, and he was light years more fun & charming about it than say, Dan
Needs the money most
Please! We all 'need' a half million dollars! Anyone who goes on a tv show to pay their Visa bill or because they can't scrape together the next car payment should consider credit counseling, bankruptcy, gambling, or steady employment - we're all sick of the sob stories.. the fact that BB has already given $500,000 to Dan is irrelevant, as he misted his co-finalists and the jury into forgetting all about that little detail
Generally a favorite method for feedsters, but more jury members are closet cutest-sexiest-dreamiest voters than they'll admit
A favorite for feedsters and jury alike, it's what most really mean when they say 'best game' - basically it means 'smarter than me' - but given the fact that we're dealing with people who've spent two and a half months pooping on tv, being humiliated for our enjoyment, and making their friends & families ashamed to claim them, most hamsters are eliminated from this category when they complete their BB application
Played like I would
The big daddy for feedsters who haven't caught on that everyone's different and everyone does different things for different reasons.. it's the most popular judging criteria and the dumbest: they aren't you, they haven't seen everything you've seen, and until you're in there for two and a half months of paranoia, daily slander, and Diary messing up your better judgment, you can't possibly know what you'd do in there.. get over it
One of the elimination categories, this one's about rooting for anyone except the player who took out your favorite (or yourself, if on the jury).. this one usually decides the winner.. in gamespeak it's also known as 'nothing personal'
Creeped me out
Another elimination category and a big one some seasons, this is rooting for anyone except the player who gives you the willies or reminds you of your ex.. more popular among feedsters than the jury, which is odd: they're the ones who lived with the creepies - we can shut 'em off.. feel free to cite this one if you need an excuse to abstain from voting
I just like him or her
Hands-down easiest method because it requires no reasons or explanations, making it the best category to avoid involvement in flame wars.. however, this season has a Danielle exception: you will be expected to back it up with something else in most BB chats, boards, and global social media outlets
Deserves to win
This really means you don't know or don't care and are probably just afraid of getting involved in a flame war.. back it up with something or shift over to 'I just like him or her'.. Danielle fans, take note of the above exclusion or prepare to be flamed - if you prefer to stay flame-free, just keep quiet
A personal favorite, but this season most of our fun went when Willie got kicked out, and it was depleted a bit more when Janelle, Wil, Britney, Frank and Joe got their respective boots.. Ian would be the favorite here thanks in large part to his co-starring hammock.. Danielle fans can safely use this reason to root for her, thanks in large part to the comedy stylings of As Danielle's World Turns
Played with integrity
This is a nice pipe dream for optimists and romantics, but not much more: in reality tv, the good tend to die young
I hate them all equally
Most feedsters end up here sooner or later
Eek a mouse (Monday 9/17)The awkward settled like dust and they had a quiet day.. they were told they'd be doing a segment for "The Talk" Tuesday morning: it might be live, or might be taping for Wednesday.. also the winner will be back on Thursday's show.. Danielle described last night to Dan as a "bomb" and "Ian made me sit out here for an hour" - I'm telling you, the comedy never stops coming
The mouse keeps making appearances but has yet to be caught on the feeds.. I took a nap when Dan & Danielle did, lulled by Ian's hammock songs - it was lovely.. then Ian hollered "there's the mouse!" and we all woke up.. I'm kind of hoping the mouse will make an appearance during backyard interviews Wednesday night, and cause a cartoon-like scream 'n scatter scene
Tonight's psychological warfare took the form of first Dan being a horribly loud and obnoxious winner at cards, followed by hiding out in the bedroom after dinner.. coincidentally or conveniently for Showtime, again, Danielle came in to ask what was wrong.. he mopily that he didn't want to talk about it, but she proceeded to pep-talk him in earnest about what a great game he's played, how many jury votes he'll have, what a fabulous person he is, and that she'd be willing to go to jury to give him an extra vote.. when she left, he busted out laughing and said "I love this game".. later he talked "Survivor" with Ian again, and kept asking why various jury members had voted the way they did - the guy never stops working
And the minutes drag (Sunday 9/16)These last days of feeds are usually quiet but we do have some interesting dynamics this time at least.. Danielle grouched a lot to Dan about Ian, apparently forgetting that she agreed to fake fight with him.. later Dan and Ian had a long chat in the pool about this, that and the other, and Danielle sat off to the side.. finally she was asked a question, and the awkward started to settle, just a bit, at least in the open - behind-the-back slams and whispers continue unchecked.. when Danielle went back to grouching about Ian to Dan, he suggested she "rattle his cage"
The rattling attempts began with Showtime, when Dan was called to Diary and Danielle laid into Ian.. it's a Dan plan to sabotage Danielle, by her own hand, and it seems rather effective.. like Dan, Ian doesn't fight back or get visibly riled, which winds up Danielle tighter and tighter
The psychological warfare going on in there this week is more intense than most Thanksgiving dinner tables - Flashback 9/16 9.08pm for the main event, 10.40pm for an extraordinarily derailed Danielle retell, and 9/17 12.04am for Ian's retell to his hammock
The other highlight of the day was a rustling under the deck they assumed to be the backyard mouse, but it didn't make an appearance until later when Ian was hammocking, and later again when he was chatting with Dan.. the hammock continues its new songs, with new varieties every now and then - who knew creaks and squeaks could be so non-repetitive and musical?
PS A personal thank you for all the kind words about yesterday's What it Takes to be Hamsterwatch.com - I truly appreciate every one! And also the donations of course - I'm behind on my thank yous there but I'm floored and very grateful for every one.. Hamsterwatchers are simply the best
Alliance hellThis was a season like no other for alliances, and simply loony to try to keep up with.. I termed them a bunch of random interchangeable roving gangs when I tried to put together an Alliance Rollcall back on August 4 - it already needed updates the next day
Thanks to a couple of highly creative and talented folks, help for all of us arrived in the form of diagrams! @89razorskate20 kept us updated with easy to understand pictorial diagrams of the complex teamings-up.. I included each update in Links of the Day here as they came along, and they came along fast some weeks! This one incorporated Dan's many finals deals - clicky for full size and to see the full series along with regularly updated stats, memory wall and jury revision charts among other things
The diagram pictured here is a later update in a fabulous series by @tartu85 aka Current Resident - clicky for full size.. sure it looks crazy busy but it's really accurate, really funny, and it's fleshed out with details, quotes, and admonitions such as "Alliances and deals are subject to change as soon as this chart is saved" (plus a timestamp).. clicky to see more from the series - they're well worth it for the laughs as well as a chance to review the many bizarre metamorphoses we went through this season.. big ups to both for the great work, and for helping us all follow the very convoluted plot!

Which hamster should win $25k?
> Voting is closed
Sunday's clipdown show was second place with 7.64 million viewers, 2.3 rating and 6 share, behind football on NBC with 18.061/7.5/19, and ahead of Revenge reruns on ABC, and The Simpson and Family Guy reruns on FOX.
Clicky: caps sorted by day - all caps
NEWS & UPDATESProducers will award the $25k viewer favorite to their choice - your free online votes just up their traffic so they can charge higher advertising rates across all of CBS.com. However if you must vote on this poll, I fully endorse Ian! With some backup votes for Jodi, if Ian ends up in the Final Two! She got royally screwed by BB but has been a great sport about it, and very funny and personable on Twitter. Frank is the only other fan applicant this season, but Jodi's dreams of hamsterdom were shattered before she even had a chance to start.
Remember on the premiere when Julie announced a $100k prize for the coach whose player won the season? Yeah, that $100k.
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.
Final three and juror Twitters are @TulaneTerry, @DanGheesling, @DanielleAlexisM, @shanemeaney, @msjenncity, @joearvin, @Frankeudy, @britney_haynes, @ashleyiocco
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.
