|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 in! (Saturday 7/7)
The new hamsters moved into the habitat tonight, making this Day 1 of the new season calendar, with Kara the first one in by the looks of it.. they've tricked us before by posting a second or third group and making us believe it was the first, but if this is legit and Kara was first in, her odds aren't good for winning BB14.. if you're familiar with Attwx.com (and why wouldn't you be?) you'll know that no first enterer has won in 13 seasons
By now they'll have taken their pics in front of the house (FOTH for you old-timers) with their little bags, had a champagne toast with get-to-know-you small talk, and held their first HOH comp, which is usually a combination of endurance and humilation themes (toilet seats, hot dogs, etc).. we usually hear who that first HOH is before the premiere, but the rumors have been so chaotic over the last week, a grain of salt might be needed when the news comes out.. tomorrow they'll strip down for the backyard group bikini pics the media outlets love so much, and the scheming will begin - alas, without us
Time's running out fast to get the full season's feeds for just $29.99 - after Wednesday, they'll be $10 more.. links are all over this page to get yours but here's another to save you having to look for one
A quick note on mobile feeds: they are not active yet! Repeat, they are not active yet! So don't panic if you can't see anything on your phone or tablet before the feeds begin Thursday.. you can get ready though: iPhone & iPad users should upgrade to the latest iOS version available for your iThing, and Android users should be sure you have Adobe Flash 11.1 - check by going to Settings>Applications>Manage Applications.. if it doesn't show 11.1 there, upgrade Adobe Flash at Google Play, and then check that path again to confirm.. don't worry that Google Play says it's giving you Flash 11 as long as you recheck that path and it shows 11.1 on your device (isn't technology wonderful?)
Still in "Greece" (Friday 7/6)
Today's Rumor Control show was meant to have Janelle & Rachel but Chelsia said Janelle was "still in Greece" and without Internet (in her five-star hotel), which surprised absolutely nobody who's been paying attention.. I'm disappointed she's not able to do her first impressions post for me again this year, but it'll be fun having her on the feeds again, and in the competitions
Rachel did Skype in and proceeded to talk all about the new hamsters, which confirms* that she's not going to be back again this year (although I wouldn't be surprised to see her host a comp).. she also mentioned Janelle, Dan, Boogie and Britney so many times The Powers That Be must have been having conniption fits.. coincidentally (cough), SuperPass sent out a promotional email today showing those same four, but Chelsia said it was sheer coincidence, and now they're rotating pics of the potentials pool of 14 - Dick & Natalie were greyed out today
In the other habitat, Kevin & Ashley have moved to limbo - those glass hamsters sure are fickle! They haven't had a repeat nom yet.. also today a probable possible explanation for Jacob's quick exit turned up in the shape of gay porn - see my adults page for that - not safe for work, kids, or delicate sensibilities.. remember, ABC is owned by Disney
My own first impressions of the new kids & companion arrows will be posted here this weekend as they move into the habitat, along with a guest poster or two!
* Nothing is ever truly confirmed until Julie says so
We got hamsters! (Weds-Thurs 7/4-5)CBS ads started running Wednesday morning showing quick glimpses of some the new blood, and the full cast was revealed on Thursday.. below are their basics per CBS, with additional links & dirt being added as it turns up - follow me on Twitter and keep checking back here
CBS confirmed four returning has-beens, Allison Grodner announced none of them would be from last season, and Dick Donato confirmed they'd be mentors to teams.. he also practically confirmed they will be Janelle, Dan, Boogie, and either Rachel or Danielle Reyes - as reported below - which leaves us with BB3 Dani after Grodner's announcement.. most of the formers stay in touch with production and each other, and they do know what's going on with The Powers That Be - especially Dick.. and remember once again, nothing's official until Julie says so
CBS also kicked off my goofs tally with not one but three blunders - see below
Update CBS posted an opinion poll listing a pool of 16 formers, four of which will return, and Danielle Reyes was not on the list, so I guess I'll go out on a limb and call our fourth as BB12 Britney Haynes? She'd be fun anyway.. I suppose it could be BB11 Natalie Martinez since she was more "successful" at BB than the remaining options, but I kind of hope not.. if Rachel or even Daniele D do show up after Allison said "nobody from last year," an angry mob will be after her with pitchforks, nevermind that she might have made that quote a week ago

Cast reveal is coming soon (Tuesday 7/3)Some have questioned 14 frames on the photo wall combined with CBS's promise of the "biggest cast ever" but they have shuffled the number of frames and table settings between house pics and cast reveal in the past, so neither necessarily means anything
We'll find out who the new hamsters are on Thursday, but I kind of doubt if we'll also learn about the returnees then - last year they held that info until the premiere (but we already knew who they were)
Several sources are indicating four teams of four new hamsters this year, and each will have a veteran as a "mentor" or coach, for a total of 20.. those mentors are thought to be BB6/7 Janelle Pierzina, BB10 Dan Gheesling, BB2/7 Mike Boogie Malin, plus one more.. possibles for that remaining spot include BB3/7 Danielle Reyes or BB8/13 Daniele Donato.. many think BB12/13 Rachel Reilly will be back for a third round but I'm not buying that one.. I've also not written off BB9 Chelsia Hart or BB11 Ronnie Talbott but I don't really have any reliable info to believe either of them will be involved - call it a hunch
Janelle had agreed to give her first impressions of the new cast for this site again this year, so if she is indeed going to be on the show, she was either a late add or she was putting up a smokescreen.. if this is all a load of hooey and she is really in Greece, then we can look forward to her post soon.. I've also got a couple other guest posters lined up for your reading enjoyment
It sounds like the mentors are getting $25k to show up, but they will not be eligible for the $500k winner's prize.. a mentor will be evicted automatically when the last newbie on their team goes home, taking care of several of the double evictions they'll need to pull this off.. however, if one of their team wins BB14, they'll get a nice $100k payday instead.. I don't yet know if mentors will compete in HOH and veto comps, but I'd hope so since Janelle & Daniele D in particular are such monster competitors.. none of the rumored mentors was particularly good at strategy in the past other than Danielle R (I give credit to Dr Will for Boogie's win, to Dick for Daniele's 2nd place, and to Diary for Dan's), so if all this is true, these are some interesting choices
All of this explains the "biggest cast ever," "four huge surprises" and "one shocking game-changer" that are being touted in the ads but remember, none of this is confirmed, and nothing is ever official until Julie says so! Meanwhile the new hamsters have been interviewed by the various media outlets and will be introduced to us on July 5, and then the fun begins
And in the other habitatThe Glass House really started heating up on Monday night's feed, with a lot of snippy bitching and a few face-to-face confrontations between the orchestrated activities.. they were called to Diary Confessional individually at various points on the feed to answer questions, but the producers often kept them waiting in there in order to show us some of the gossip and arguments that were going on - well played, ABC!
Apollo was kicked out, and Erica & Robin aka "Cray Cray" were sent to limbo.. we learned that Stephanie's husband died, and Gene gave us a tearful tale of his best friend's death - a bit too tearful in my opinion.. perhaps it's true, but he seemed to be playing it up a bit too much, considering they're relying on public votes to keep them there
Tension continues between gay Jeffrey and Mormon Andrea, as do the viewer questions to them both about their issues with each other.. my problem with all these Q&A sessions is they all keep giving the kind of answers they think people want to hear, and all the orchestration reminds them constantly that they're on camera.. the moments we've seen of them being themselves are getting pretty good, but they're still too few and far between for my liking
