CBS Interactive Inc. Daily Hamsterwatch
I don't care who wins, I'm just here for the cheap entertainment.. the cheaper, the better
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

24 hours later (Sunday, July 21)

They told Judd he couldn't let his clock BEEP BEEP BEEP endlessly anymore, which took away most of the comedy from his solitary confinement - maybe it was driving the control room nuts.. he was freed at 5.15pm on the dot to great fanfare, possibly the first time a 24-hour veto punishment went the full 24 hours

The girls ran around bitching to and about each other all day, and retelling and rehashing everything, like they do.. they had a photo booth event - enthusiasm is waning there but most participated eventually.. McCrae and Amanda put themselves back into circulation a bit: McCrae apologized to Spencer for fibbing about being MVP, and later cornered Amanda in the pantry to tell her that her name has been coming up a lot

Howard and Candice continued to lay on each other and run their loops.. at this point, I think Howard could be replaced by a tape recorder propped up next to her, with "just let it go, don't buy into it" on rewind and repeat.. Helen went away at 8pm again, her last night of curfew

Date Night returned, with McCrae and Amanda having dinner for two in Judd's HOH room, served by Aaryn and Kaitlin.. once left alone, they talked game

Elissa tried to write a proposal in whip or shaving cream on the lazy susan for them to see on the spyscreen, but Big Brother shooed her off.. she did it on tinfoil instead and Amanda finally noticed it, despite the glare

McCrae went to one knee and asked if she'd be his Big Brother wife, presented the twisty-tie and fake diamond ring made last week, and they kissed.. then they went downstairs to joyful applause from all (except GinaMarie), and birthday cupcakes, and then normality resumed


Mass Projectile Vomit (Saturday 7/20)

That's what MVP apparently stood for today, as war broke out on the BB interwebs when Elissa won the title for a fourth time - or lost, in this case.. logic would indicate a number of points:
-Just as Brenchelissa's fanbase previously beat out votes diluted among many other hamsters, votes for those many other hamsters came together to work against Elissa this time
-Some voted blindly without listening to Julie or reading the poll page
-Some fell for the Twitter prank urging vote-for-favorite as usual
-Aaryn was probably ahead of Elissa in the actual vote-for-nominee count, but she was already nominated

But as we know, logic and Big Brother rarely mesh, especially when rabid fans and haters go at each other, and now we're all covered in vomit.. it got so bad, #BB15 hashtag was trending third in USA on Twitter - during a comp with trivia on feeds!

Per the usual pattern, it all turned out to be moot anyway, since Elissa won the veto.. Helen and McCrae also played, and Andy hosted.. McCrae got $5,000, Helen got 8pm curfew, Elissa can't play in next veto comp (unless she's HOH?), and Judd got solitary confinement - his "solitary dance party" is in the lounge with a loud beeping alarm clock.. he moved in at approx 5.15pm.. it sounded like a hunt and find comp in a "swamp", with lanes, and point totals involved

Some of them "know" or suspect how the vote worked this week, some don't, and some wondered if Elissa had the usual MVP and named herself to throw off suspicion.. last night's meeting between Howard, Kaitlin, GinaMarie, Spencer and Judd may or may not result in an actual solid alliance, but it will surely have some repercussions as we go

As always, you don't have to take my word for any of this: get the feeds to watch everything as it unfolds, now open to Canadians too! The $26.99 season pass option ends Monday - after that the $9.99 per month plan will remain available.. remember to click "previous Hamsterwatch episode" at the top of any page to see what came before.. feel free to click the banner up there for any of your Amazon purchases anytime


McCrae's birthday surprise

Judd received various visitors outside his door but mostly he slept, as his alarm clock BEEP BEEP BEEPed into every nearby conversation - it didn't seem to faze him at all.. much psst pssting went on all day about this one or that one, and who's the MVP and what's the twist.. Helen dutifully went to bed and silence at 8pm, and Amanda wrapped Elissa in saran wrap so she could sweat - she proceeded to do her bendy stuff for the crowd, like she does, and the two of them also wrapped their faces..the backyard finally opened but had a power failure, and they were all shooed back inside again/still

Howard planned a birthday surprise for McCrae at midnight, preparing to put him in a headlock, then several of them would throw him in the bathtub, pour water on him, and then "have a girl" lapdance him - all the girls said that had to be Amanda.. at the appointed hour, McCrae was tipped off that something was coming but he clearly enjoyed being shackled and receiving 24 chest & belly kisses from Amanda in stripper-type outfit, 24 ass smacks from Amanda with a homemade flogger made by GinaMarie, and a chorus of Happy Birthday that went to fishies.. Andy arrived fashionably late, in heels - flashback 7/21 12.00am

McCrae reported the festivities to Judd in jail, and that's about when things went south.. apparently Elissa flipped off the camera and/or production during the party (which would ruin the perfect-til-then edit for CBS).. she also allegedly made comments about Amanda being trashy or somesuch - again, this was all strobing with fishies.. next thing you know, Amanda was in tears in the downstairs bathroom while Aaryn, GinaMarie and others comforted her, saying that's the kind of thing Elissa had said about them in the first days

All of this was very dramatic, very loud, and very sippy, and it all took place inches away from Judd.. it can only help him in the future


Ratings - Hanging Chad edition

Ratings are Saturday's, based on entertainment value, kind of

Dear Producers,
I find myself in the unusual position of rationalizing the legitimacy of this MVP vote - who saw that coming? I'm curious if you thought this season would play out even close to what it has, but of course I'll never know the answer to that. If you're taking requests, I'd love to see something like the bunny suits return instead of another unitard variation. How about cat outfits? Because, you know, that would work on multiple levels.
your pal,

Dear Aaryn,
It's time to cut your losses and get gone. Trust me. The longer you're in there, the worse it'll be when you get out. Also I'm tired of being called a racist supporter by illiterates, and I'm tired of receiving tweets with random Hitler factoids if I mention your name. That's why I don't do it often anymore.
your pal,

Dear Amanda,
Your social game was virtually flawless a minute ago and now it's all collapsed. Funny how quickly things can change when you lay around slurpydurping all the time, isn't it? I just wish you hadn't dragged my boy down with you.
your pal,
PS It isn't your HOH room.

Dear Andy,
The whole feedsbomb thingy had gotten stale, but things are looking up now that you're always showing up late and are being excluded from convos.
your pal,
PS I don't think you'd really holler 'this is for Dingo' if you hit the panic button to self-evict, but thanks for thinking of me.

Dear Candice,
We get it. The bed flip, the fishies, the Shanequa, all of it - we get it. The hamsters get it, the tv viewers get it, everybody gets it. TMZ, CNN, USA Today, and international media outlets get it! You can stop dwelling on it and move on. We get it.
your pal,

Won: Sit out 1 veto comp
Dear Elissa,
Congrats on the win when you needed it, and congrats for an unprecedented fourth MVP! Too bad this last one was a different kind of MVP but you're not going anywhere anytime soon anyway. I'm surprised your random bendy and changing clothes in mid convo routine hasn't raised more eyebrows, but your bad acting skills haven't either, so there you are.
your pal,
PS Some - not all - but some of your fans are rude, and some are confused. Some are both, and some of those take it out on me. I doubt you'll ever read this or care, but I'm just putting it out there. It's kinda sucky.

Dear GinaMarie,
Thank you for your wacky hair. It's about all I've got this season to have fun with. My money's on you as the renom Monday, and I'm expecting spectacular things from you your hair on the block, whether that happens now or later.
your pal,

Won: 8pm curfew
Dear Helen,
Thank you for taking the 8pm curfew in the veto comp. We haven't yet recovered from last week, and this will help. Is it permanent?
your pal,

Dear Howard,
Your entertainment value isn't all that, and your gametalk monotone is sleep-inducing. Step it up, please.
your pal,
PS Why don't you tell Candice how much you dislike being called Howie? Maybe she'd stop.

Won: Permanent Have-not pass
He claimed 1/16 Cherokee but he besmirched that heritage regularly, along with many others. He caused and starred in the big Winegate fight, smooched with Kaitlin while laying his hand on Aaryn's leg, wore a diaper, and mistakenly boasted he'd win every comp. He was a boy in a man's body, but his tattoos were nicer looking than most heavily tatted hamsters' have been. He'll be most remembered for being the asshat of BB15.

Dear Jessie,
Are you still in there?
your pal,

Won: 24 hour solitary
Dear Judd,
We miss you. Please come out of the lounge as soon as possible. You're our only hope.
your pal,

Dear Kaitlin,
I'm glad you didn't mourn as much as GinaMarie when you were widowed, but it would help a lot if you didn't sleep so much. We're only one-third through this thing - it's way too early to sleep all day, especially when you're nominated. Or have you forgotten that little detail?
your pal,

Won: $5,000
Dear McCrae,
Yes I'm surprised too, but you earned that down arrow. You've taken everything you know you should do in there, which is a considerable amount, and you've done the opposite. If you're truly in love, more power to you. But it looks more like you've let Amanda suck your spirit right out of you. Please get out of bed and back to the game, go back to interacting with everyone, and go back to being vertical. They are all plotting your demise in your absence.
your pal forever,
PS It's not your HOH room either.
PPS Happy birthday.

Dear Spencer,
You're like the drunken uncle at Thanksgiving. Everything's going along fine, everyone's enjoying themselves, laughing at your jokes, and then you cross the line without any warning whatsoever, and everyone has to eat their pie in awkward silence. Every. Damn. Time.
your pal,

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!

Big Brother Australia starts up again July 28.

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

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

McCrae about birthdays: Last year I stayed home watching live feeds.. now I'm in the live feeds, it's weird, super weird

Andy at fridge: They must have fixed it, the water comes out faster! And if you listen very closely, it tells you who the MVP's gonna be

Helen: Not talking is really hard

Amanda at Judd's door: This is like being on the phone with you

Aaryn: I feel I've been chastised to the point where I'm not even fun anymore, I'm not even me.. people who say I victimize myself need to look in the mirror

GinaMarie to Elissa: Step into my office.. no, not you Andy

GinaMarie: I do like you
Elissa: If you're gonna be aggressive with me, I don't think we should have this conversation

Judd: I can't wait til y'all see how it looks in here - it's not that different though

Spencer to Judd: There was very possibly some sex in this bed last night

Big Brother: Judd, McCrae, you are not allowed to talk about production
Judd: Is Elissa fuckin production?! That's who we were talking about!

GinaMarie: Guess who's having the best week ever? His birthday, he gets 5 grand, gets engaged, gets HOH room

McCrae: Once I saw they started doing chum baths on Big Brother I was like oh shit, I have to go on it

Andy: I'll fight to the nail for you to stay

Candice to Howard: You're a huge black man, it's intimidating

McCrae: Where the hell was the chum bath? I would have taken that in a heartbeat

Aaryn: The house doesn't like me and I don't at this point know why
Others: [silence]

Judd's alarm clock: BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP

Amanda, with her face wrapped in saran wrap: Trust me, I do this all the time

Kaitlin: I used to design leashes for frogs and take them on walks, but I just ended up dragging and killing them

Spencer: I do have a leather mask with a zipper mouth

Elissa: Amanda's up here stripping and they tell me to shut it down? I'm like.. -cut to fishies
