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

Big Brother After Dark is on TVGN for two hours every night starting at midnight (9pm BB time), and is censored

CBS shows are Tuesday 9pm, live Wednesday 8pm, and Sundays 8pm; changing to Sundays 8pm, Wednesdays 8pm, eviction Thursdays 9pm beginning July 11.

Canada runs the TV episodes on Global, and After Dark on Slice, uncensored.

The MVP selects the third nominee, privately, and he or she doesn't have to tell anyone they are MVP.

Some of them are calling Candice 'Reptar'

Jeremy's tattoo says 'Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds' (Einstein).

BB15 winner's prize is the same: $500k for the winner, so I assume 2nd still gets $50k. Stipend for the others is $1,000 per week (up from $750), including pre-show hotel and jury sequester. Recruits may get more.

The habitat has 65 cameras (up 12) and 98 microphones (same).

The recorded in-house announcements are the voice of producer Don Wollman.

A Class Divided (Monday 7/8)

I really don't like to veer away from the fun that is Big Brother feeds here, but the fun this year has been taken over by the ugly speech that continues to come out of the mouths of some of them, especially Aaryn, Jeremy, and GinaMarie

I've linked to the A Class Divided Frontline piece before (and I'm keeping it in my Links of the Day), but today I'm making it my featured item in hopes that a few more of you watch it and then share it with someone else - it's a very simple way to be "part of the solution"

Jane Elliott, the teacher in the program and creator of the brown eyes/blue eyes exercise, went on to become the mother of workplace diversity training, and she still holds workshops.. my greatest wish would be for The Powers That Be to bring her into the habitat for a day to run the exercise with this group.. it's obviously more than appropriate at this point, and I think they could turn this whole thing into one of the greatest hours of reality TV of all time if they did.. but I rarely get my wishes where BB is concerned

After Sunday's show aired some of the racist & homophobic comments, our festering mess oozed even further into the mainstream media, all the way to The New York Times.. The Talk also covered it in a serious discussion segment in which Julie mistakenly referred to Helen as being Chinese - oops, Helen's Korean.. also, David did his interviews, dude

There's not much else going on in there: Jeremy took himself off the block and Nick went up as Elissa's MVP replacement.. other than that, it's pretty much just gametalk, gossiping, eating, making out, and more gametalk.. the only thing really keeping my interest is the ongoing fake hair disasters - and I've been criticized for focusing on them too - go figure

More later, maybe

On we go (Sunday 7/7)

CBS finally ran a segment featuring some of the more glaring soundbytes of Bigotgate on Sunday's show - see Links of the Day below if you missed it.. Aaryn took the brunt of it but GinaMarie was in there too.. whether TPTB caved to pressure from the ever-growing ooze or simply because this was the first show it would fit into doesn't really matter: it needed airing and they finally aired it

Jessie joined the ranks of Bigotgate tonight with a comment about Amanda and Jews, see Lines of the Day below, bringing my count of language offenders to eight: Aaryn, Kaitlin, GinaMarie, David, Jeremy, Spencer, Amanda, and now Jessie

Gametalk is still running rampant in there and I just don't/can't keep it with it all.. veto meeting is probably Monday and that's when the real gametalk begins, but waffling will carry on through Wednesday as usual - that's when I count votes

Nighttime brought a booze delivery, much trashing of Kaitlin and Jeremy by their bedmate and former bestie Aaryn, and a doozy of a show: Amanda stripped down to bandaid pasties and thong, and got GinaMarie to do a strip show of sorts with her.. Aaryn and Jessie stripped down to lingerie, and even Helen participated a bit.. it was almost a flashback to the strip show that preceded the infamous BB9 pool party - flashback 7/7 11.14pm

Most of the guys whooped and hollered, especially Spencer.. GinaMarie danced up against Howard and Nick, making each visibly uncomfortable, and Amanda stayed in her bandaids for almost an hour afterwards

Fans of Deathrace 2013 can now follow the deterioration of ratty extensions and dark roots on its own Twitpic events page without all the gametalk and racism interfering.. it's something to tide us over till the grill arrives anyway


Ratings - How Did This Happen? edition

Ratings are based on entertainment value, give or take

Kudos for airing the racism segment on Sunday's show. It was far from comprehensive and made Aaryn the poster girl of the situation when others are also guilty, but it was due.

She's on Hamsterwatch ignore for now, possibly permanently.

She knows something's up that she doesn't know about, but she can't quite figure out what. She and McCrae have been getting into a tug-of-war over whether to keep Elissa or give her the boot, and some of the Moving Company boys want to pull her in with them to ensure she doesn't blow everything up. But all that stuff will fall by the wayside soon enough: her bandaid boobies won't soon be forgotten.

Ups simply for the comedy of how inhumanly talented he is for popping into every game convo all day long. The real gametalk really starts after he's gone to bed and it's finally safe to talk without him showing up. He's caused me to invent yet another new word: feedsbomb, the BB equivalent of a photobomb.

I still barely see her for more than a few minutes at a time.

Won: nothing
He didn't bring much to the feeds and he seemed oblivious about how the show works, but those types are the ones who get blindsided and we always like to see that. The Aaryn & David Comedy Show was fun for a minute but all the controversy she fed took the fun out of that, so it's just as well he got gone early. Back to the beach and watching BB on the couch with mom.

She's often been the voice of reason so far, but she's not really done much but be there and do her yoga. While I have nothing against her, I'd still prefer she get gone this week since I don't like the whole stunt-casting thing in principle. I hate to agree with Aaryn & Jeremy but they're correct on this one: Elissa has an unfair advantage over the others with the MVP vote. She'll continue to win it as long as she's there, giving her a free nomination each week (or two, as happened this week), simply for being Rachel's sister.

A resounding negative arrow is upgraded to neutral thanks to her hair, or whatever that is on her head, and the many impossible formations it forms in the course of a day.

She's way too gametalky for my liking, but I have to laugh at the way she breaks into spontaneous workouts in random places.
P.S. I wouldn't be laughing if I was doing them with her - I'd be crying. Elissa might have the fitness rep and websites, but Helen is a workout beast!

Ups for a very smooth game so far, and for going about it in a classy way. Sure, he could mouth off to the bigots in there, but he'd like to win $500k like the rest of them, and that wouldn't help him do that. His understated eloquence as the 'spokesman' of sorts on the CBS segment was perfect.

Won: Permanent Have-not pass
This asshat is one step away from permanent ignore.

She became the 8th hamster to join the very non-exclusive BB15 BigotGate club with her comments about Jews, bringing the total offenders count to one half of the cast.

A dedicated, around-the-clock feed on him would be very, very welcome, partly to keep some of the ugly at bay, but mostly because nearly everything that comes out of his mouth is hilarious.

She keeps saying she doesn't want to 'look like a whore on national TV' and she keeps straddling Jeremy and doing the sexy with him. Lack of self-awareness is a typical hamster trait, but she takes it to a new level. Just a few days ago, she and Aaryn were BFFs but now that Kaitlin's all but surgically attached to Jeremy, she's moved to the top of Aaryn's hit list.

I'm still pulling for him like I've pulled for no hamster before, but I wish he'd distance himself from Amanda a bit and get his head back in the game.

To use an overused habitat word of this summer, I think he's 'sketchy' but I can't put my finger on why. I do like seeing it when GinaMarie starts her mooning and crying at him, making him clearly uncomfortable. I guess that's my cruel streak showing.

I remain on the fence about him. Yes he says some vile things and tells some highly inappropriate jokes, but he's also playing a smooth game and can be very funny, notwithstanding the raunchy and sexist humor he seems to prefer.

Julie on The Talk: [Aaryn] said that about Helen, who is Chinese
[no, Helen is Korean]

Aaryn, after Andy said he still gets called 'faggot' at times: Like straight to your face? We don't even do that

Aaryn: There should be an All-Stars of the most annoying people... of the people least liked, losers

GinaMarie: I don't want to be seen like white trash with black roots

Aaryn: How come they don't pick like half-black people that are fun? How come all the half-black people they choose, they all are annoying? Think about it, for so many seasons..
McCrae: That sounds vaguely racist
Aaryn: It does, but like they do it on purpose, they're the racist ones, not me

Helen: All reality shows are focused around booze, except this one

Aaryn: I wonder if we've offended anyone back home

Jessie: I think Amanda has a lot of money, she's Jewish, I know it's a stereotype but what Jew do you know that isn't loaded?

Spencer: Hopefully there's tittaaaaays, who loves tittaaaaays

Jeremy to Kaitlin, in bed: You broke me down for good, you knew you could, didn't you?
Kaitlin: Mm-hmm
