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

Snapshots and swimmies (Sunday 7/28)

Gametalk was interrupted for the weekly photo booth event, which came with flower leis, water wings, and a mad scientist wig that sent Deathrace 2013 into the stratosphere

Slopsickness kept Judd in bed for too much of the day for my liking, but he showed up now and then to pop a funny or three.. Candice spent the entire day in her airplane bed, crying often, and Twitter went to town with a #BlameCandice hashtag game that followed the habitat's lead and blamed her for everything from missing socks to Kardashians to Red Wedding to world hunger.. later she retold Bedgate and her other woes yet again to Amanda, eavesdropped by Helen & Elissa, who eventually went into the room to listen in person and after a few more retell rounds, Candice actually got up and joined the others for a little while

Also tonight, Helen and Aaryn co-hosted Nail Party 2.0, attended by all the girls except Candice, plus Andy.. most of them enjoyed some stashed wine, which gave them a headstart for the booze delivery that came a bit later.. hilarity ensued, with sippy Jessie, Andy, and Elissa plus sober Judd being especially funny.. Candice got heated with Howard again, probably as a result of her talking-to by Amanda plus Helen, and it'll probably take a very long for Howard to talk her down this time

It's sounding like Candice will still go up in Spencer's place tomorrow, even though Aaryn has realized it won't look good for her to nominate both Howard and Candice with the racism accusations going around about her.. she basically said oh well, her family and friends know who she is

Update: Meetings carried on and on, with Howard basically saying if Candice goes up against him, he'll campaign in her favor.. McCrae and Amanda had a spat in two or three emotional rounds about Andy, and Judd, and do they really trust each other or not? Each swore they do, but it carried on far too long anyway



I haven't commented much on the CBS edits thus far this season, but tonight's was interesting in a few ways.. the narrator describing Aaryn as "the most hated person in the house" was surprising: hamsters sometimes use the word "hate" and viewers often do, but it's pretty rare for CBS to.. then when they showed Aaryn saying "you got me saying axed" to Candice, they pointedly edited out her saying "and you" to GinaMarie.. that was something of a milestone actually, since Aaryn had thus far overlooked GinaMarie's pronunciation of "asked" while she highlighted Candice's, but the omission for TV sure seems to indicate they're going to keep Aaryn propped out in front as the poster girl for Bigotgate

The Have-not comp was cute and different, as many have been this season, but you have to wonder why they're not showing the alliterative supplement reveals this year.. mostly I'm pleased to say that the sword-like SCHWINNGGGG sound effect for the plastic keys at nominations has now been surpassed by the inserted creaking of Elissa's saran wrap - actually it's pretty silent when she's wrapped in plastic to do her bendy


Amanda gets a shock (Saturday 7/27)

The third nominee was revealed to be Amanda, causing quite a commotion in the habitat.. she seemed "flabbergasted" that anyone would want her gone, and she proceeded to have something of a meltdown as she, McCrae, and others thought about the implications.. even Judd got heated

Jessie and Candice were picked to play for veto along with Aaryn and the nominees, with Helen hosting, and Amanda practically strong-armed Jessie by saying she had to let Amanda win as well as give up any potential prizes to make it so.. others were involved in that too, including McCrae, but he later approached Jessie and said that had been out of line, and he told Andy that he and Amanda play "good cop, bad cop"

Many of them suspect Howard of being MVP despite him denying it, and/or that he holds a coup d'etat or other special power.. GinaMarie wore Judd's bear shirt, Candice wore Andy's cat shirt, and Elissa's repercussion from last week that she can't play in the next veto comp was pointless.. more later

Feeds came back to Spencer wearing the veto, and telling mopey Howard & Candice that he'd told off McCrae.. all signs indicate that Aaryn will replace Spencer with Candice, but the veto meeting isn't until Monday and things can change quickly in there, as we know

The feeds went dark for about 40 minutes but they came back to the usual harangues that carried on through the night, like they do, many with sniffles and tears.. Helen and Candice had a talk that got a little bit heated - flashback 7/27 11.40pm.. it escalated with every retell, and there were several, until it seemed like Candice might end up being the one to walk the plank Thursday instead of Howard - but again, we have days to go.. tonight's retells even dredged up Bedgate again

You can fill in the gaps yourself for all the gametalk I gloss over: get the feeds to watch everything as it unfolds, Canadians too, for just $9.99 a month.. remember to click "previous Hamsterwatch episode" at the top of any page to see what came before, and feel free to click the banner up there for any of your Amazon purchases anytime

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 started up again July 29.

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.

Howard (on CBS): The man upstairs.. and he ain't told me it's time to go home yet

Elissa about Ashley: Was hers really a dream board or was it a dream board?

Spencer: This is a shitty knife

Amanda: I hope my family doesn't watch Big Brother After Dark

Judd: I'm sure Poppy Montgomery's watching....

Helen to Candice: Howard leaving the house is going to be great for your game, just like Jeremy leaving the house was good for Kaitlin's game
[reminder: Helen has a successful background in high level politics, and knows if you tell them it's true, they'll believe it]

Amanda to Howard: You speak in circles, people don't think you're a straight shooter because no one knows what you're talking about

McCrae to Amanda about Candice: Crab Shack Challenge or something, it's the only way I see her winning before you

Judd: What's that noise?
Spencer: Elissa's doing yoga
Judd: Sounds like somebody's birthing a baby

Amanda: I can't win shit in this game
Judd: Me either.. well I won that one

Judd: They don't have to tempt us with prizes - everybody here will do all the backstabbing and cutthroat for free

Elissa: I don't think you have to be smart to win this game, you have to be a liar
