This site is about the Big Brother 15 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

CBS shows are Sundays 8pm, Wednesdays 8pm, eviction Thursdays 9pm (changed from Tuesday 9pm, live Wednesday 8pm, Sundays 8pm).

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

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. If the MVP's nominee wins veto, MVP selects the replacement.

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.

Another fine mess (Friday 7/12)

Their Have-not comp was another messy one, and the losers for this week were Amanda, McCrae, Jessie, and Judd.. their supplement is grapefruit and guacamole.. GinaMarie was still shedding some tears but she got better - by late night she was laughing at having outlasted Nick, especially after finding out he's a professional "roller skater" and hand model

Helen's nomination meetings became various outings of the Moving Company, and she put most everyone through the wringer, with many tears along the way.. personally I think most of her crying is "actoring" - she's been involved in winning congressional and gubernatorial campaigns, and there's no room in that level of politics for someone who cries that easily, plus she's now surrounded by her family pics to help bring them on easier

At any rate, everyone who knew something came clean, except Howard.. Jeremy was a total yes man for his portion, agreeing to help protect Elissa and Candice - later Helen told McCrae she's "testing" Jeremy.. word made its way around to those who weren't involved, like it does, and now everybody knows about the Moving Company, and that it's out of business

Helen nominated Aaryn and Kaitlin, with her actual target being Jeremy in a true backdoor plan, by way of Howard as MVP nomination, for switching his vote and not coming clean about everything.. afterwards, True Confessions Hour (or two) took place, with one after the other spilling even more info about everything and everyone.. Andy got angry at Spencer at some point there - I don't know what that was about.. Amanda & McCrae have each been helping/coaching Aaryn & Jeremy, which may seem odd unless you think ahead to finals, which they may be doing


Another sticky situation

We didn't get a leak of the MVP reveal this time, but Elissa told McCrae & Amanda, and later Helen, that it's her again/still, and the plan to put up Howard got a bit sketchy/fishy at that point

McCrae said he'd pretend he got MVP and put up Howard to take the heat off Elissa, and he went ahead and told that to Candice and then to Howard.. at one point, Helen said "I don't think the show wants me to put up Howard" followed by "I can't talk about Diary" and cut to fishies - flashback 7/12 10.47pm.. she had said similar a couple times earlier, but this is the only one I have the timestamp for

Elissa then did some quick but clumsy scrambling, telling Helen, McCrae & Amanda that she really wasn't MVP, or she was, so she hadn't put anyone up but that she'd put up Spencer.. this greatly upset Helen and Amanda, and McCrae had to go undo his Howard talk and have a new one with Spencer in a round of utter confusion for some and pure comedy gold for others

Naturally the BB interwebs went nuts, on cue, and the general consensus is that this was clearly the work of Diary "manipulation".. it may or may not be (and we'll never know for sure), but if it is, it's reminiscent of the week that BB8 America's Player Eric Stein was slated for certain eviction, and the vote was flipped at 3am after a few late night Diary calls.. Kail went out instead that week, in a bunny suit

That happened to be the same week Amber's comments about Jews oozed out into the mainstream media, much like our current Bigotgate situation, but on a much lesser scale.. again, I'm not saying these things are related or not because I do not know, but it wouldn't have helped the PR fiasco then if the Jewish guy was evicted that week, and it wouldn't help the PR fiasco now if the black man is evicted, or has to go up against Aaryn on the next live show.. just things that make you go hmmm

Also today, they added a disclaimer about not condoning prejudices that may arise, to both the feeds and BBAD on TVGN


Countdown to fireworks (Thursday 7/11)

Most of the day was spent primping, studying last night's factoids, the usual sex chat, and the ever-present psst pssting.. as of this afternoon, it seems a foregone conclusion that Nick will go, hopefully in a blindside that will wind up Jeremy & Aaryn and cause GinaMarie to hold a funeral.. they may hold at the 6-5 vote I listed last night, or Spencer & Howard may shift it to 8-3 or even 6-3-2 if they vote to evict Helen, and if McCrae believes them, he might switch back to VTE Elissa and Nick still goes - we'll know soon enough

If you missed it, feeds are now available to Canada! If you're north of the border or just haven't gotten on board yet, now's the time to get the feeds to catch the fireworks tonight! No promo code is needed - just leave that box blank.. mobile feeds are accessible through your device browser on most smartphones, iPads, and some Android tablets

Fireworks bonanza

McCrae promised us good TV last night and it came to pass.. Nick was evicted 7-4 - Howard & Spencer ended up splitting their votes, and Helen won the HOH comp.. feeds came back quickly after Julie said good night, and GinaMarie was in a major meltdown that lasted a painfully long time

The BB6 funeral after Cappy's eviction, BB11 after Jessie's, and Dan's self-planned funeral last year now have a fourth event to keep them company: GinaMarie defined wracking sobs for the better part of seven hours, and as much as she was clearly in severe (if unrealistic) pain, she was also high comedy as she sobbed into his shorts, clutched his coffee cup and Chapstick, and wore his blue cap on her feet

Then the chaos began, and it just kept coming

GinaMarie came out of mourning for a bit to go off on Jessie, while a stunned audience watched - flashback 7/11 9.20pm.. then Jessie went off on Kaitlin & Aaryn - flashback 7/11 10.09pm.. Aaryn flipped Candice's mattress downstairs and that set off a whole new Bedgate - flashback 7/11 10.39pm.. Helen showed her pics and read her letter, but while she was still holding court with some hangers-on, Jeremy climbed onto Jessie's bed and wouldn't leave

Candice lost her mind over the bed flipping and blew up: Howard finally had to carry her out of the room, and he tried to calm and counsel her.. afterward he broke down on his own, in tears and prayers.. Judd eventually came and pulled Jessie out of the room, calling Aaryn, GinaMarie and Kaitlin "trash" on his way out - they heard

Amanda came along and laid them all out, saying they've all talked shit about each other, and she tried to tell Aaryn some truths about her controversial comments, but that fell on deaf ears - flashback 7/11 11.11pm.. Amanda tried to talk sense to Aaryn again later and appeared to be making a little progress, but Aaryn shut down suddenly and said Amanda was being condescending.. McCrae jumped in and said Aaryn had to learn to stop acting like she's number one if she wants to do well in the game (ahem, and in life), and Aaryn flounced off

Much later, McCrae told Amanda all about the Moving Company and Andy popped in, like he does, and he also got the story - even though he already knew it, and later they filled in Judd as well.. Candice continued to cry and retell to various hamsters, and GinaMarie carried on sobbing loudly in the background throughout most of the night


Ratings - WTFery edition

Ratings are Thursday's, based on entertainment value, and can ride for now
VTE = voted to evict

Anyone who thinks CBS isn't addressing Bigotgate didn't watch the Sunday or Thursday shows. They might not be addressing it in the usual PR channels, but they've put it on blast on CBS. Julie all but called out Aaryn on the live show, but the penny still won't drop for our reigning princess of denial. It wasn't necessarily any of Diary's doing, but Thursday night's feeds were worth the price of the season, even if they all lay down and sleep til finale.. but they won't. A special love note for the camera operator who zoomed in on the box of Froot Loops on the counter during all the chaos.

No vote (HOH)
She's still on Hamsterwatch ignore but she did have a killer line about GinaMarie channeling Ms Havisham. That one would be upsworthy if she still had an arrow and not an empty wheel.

VTE Nick
I'm all for any hamster who lays it out in the open and says they're all talking shit about each other! We need more of that. She also put in a good effort with Aaryn, even though it was to no avail.

VTE Nick
Heeeeeere's Andy! The professional feedsbomb just keeps popping up everywhere, all the time.

VTE Nick
I get tired of her crying and I get tired of her everlasting life stories, but she did rev things up good tonight and for that, I am grateful.

No vote (nominee)
Once again, she was virtually absent from all the drama, all the fighting, and all the shenanigans. I think she holed up with Helen for it all tonight, but I did see her participating in one of the consoling Candice shifts, and she may have put in some time with GinaMarie too. For the supposed Most Valuable Player two weeks running, she's barely there.

VTE Elissa
As BB funerals go, hers for Nick was possibly the best ever. Dan's was a well-planned scheme and Cappy's and Jessie's could be written off to mob hysteria, but GinaMarie pulled this one off all on her own. In some ways it was sad because she's clearly not all there emotionally (including the bulimia she admitted to Nick), but it was one hell of a show. Since she lost her pageant job, it's a sure bet she can get work after this for one of those funeral homes that hires over the top professional mourners.

No vote (nominee)
The hamster house mom is upstairs where she belongs, in a nice comfy room with pics of her hubby and kids, and all the calm, rational common sense in the world. Meanwhile the kids are unsupervised downstairs and running amok.

VTE Elissa
Sure it'd be fabulous if he just cut loose on them but you have to give him props for taking the high road and not stooping to their level. Even if it breaks him down - that was rough to watch.

Won: Permanent Have-not pass
VTE Elissa

VTE Nick
I don't even know what her story is in there is but like Candice, she contributed to tonight's festivities so it's all good for now.

VTE Nick
He's a keeper in every way, not the least of which is calling the trash 'trash' to their faces.

VTE Elissa
Unlike Aaryn who seems truly oblivious to her words and actions, I think Kaitlin is aware of what she does and says, and just lies about it later. Unless it's about boys and sex: there she seems to have her own brand of denial.

VTE Nick
He promised fireworks last night and fireworks we had. Vote McCrae for MVP: he's one of us! He might go underwater a bit here and there but bottom line, he knows feedsters want a show and he flipped the vote Wednesday night to deliver one. Also to cut himself loose from Jeremy.

VTE Nick
He wasn't a big player in fight night this time. That's good for him, but not so much for us.

Evicted 7-4-0
Won: Nothing
He came in saying he hoped for stardom but it probably won't happen as a result of this show. Overnighters got to know his blue hoodie & cap well, and he was usually the last one to go to bed. That's usually good strategy but it didn't help him. The over-the-top character he played in pre-season interviews gave him a rough start with most, but he didn't stick long enough for us (me anyway) to get to know what he's really about.

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.

Bigotgate oozed farther beyond our insulated BB world more than any prior scandal, going all the way to TMZ, CNN, The New York Times, and international news & media outlets. Aaryn Gries and GinaMarie Zimmerman were fired from real world jobs as a result of bigoted remarks on the BB15 feeds, Aaryn from a modeling contract and GinaMarie from her pageant company. Spencer's employer, Union Pacific, issued a statement about not condoning some of his remarks (he is a union employee).

Evel Dick Donato's Dick at Night show is back this summer on Vimeo, and he'll have special guests, former hamsters, plus a Catladies Corner segment with @Clio_the_Leo and @Catvanzyl!

BB12 Kristen Bitting will be on The Perfect Score dating show, premiering on the CW July 16.

BB12 Hayden Moss is back from playing/taping the next season of Survivor, and Brenchel will show up on a future Amazing Race season, again.

Big Brother Australia starts up again July 28.

Big Brother UK kicked off June 13 with Emma Willis hosting. This year has twins playing as one, a mother/daughter playing separately, and an actor/mole who's only there to mess with the hamsters. Watch on YouTube.

Big Brother Africa is also underway - the official site has lots of video highlight clips.
