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

Resistance is useless (Saturday 8/3)

Some have scoffed at Deathrace 2013, the little game I play with the various hair disasters in there, but for those in the know, the fascinating processes required to build their outrageous concoctions are impossible to look away from.. this morning GinaMarie took some of her spare stunt hair and styled it up to add to the rest.. when finished, she announced that her hair looked "fuckin bananas, looks GOOD!" despite the fact that the rear view was still problematic, and despite her worsening roots problem.. she did get hair color in her HOH basket, but she didn't get bleach yet - it's required for what she needs to do

Amanda was put up as the viewers' MVP nominee again, and she and others set to scurrying again to try to figure out who the MVP is and why Amanda again, and she and McCrae continued to spat over her aggressive style.. Aaryn also got a bit snippy since she realized she'd likely go up next if Amanda wins - she's probably correct there, but many of them still suspect it's Judd's doing.. Judd and Spencer were also picked to play for veto


Crimes and punishments

Jessie won the veto in a physical comp involving tossing frogs over ducks? Not quite frog giggin', it sounded more like bandanaball or cornhole.. players had camouflage hip waders and the others got camouflage shirts, and they all got new caps with their names

It was the comp where they pass off prizes to each other: Judd ended up with $5,000, Spencer got a Bahamas trip, Candice got a clown suit for a week (and as of now, she'll likely meet Julie in it), GinaMarie got 48 hours wearing a doggie cone of shame, and Amanda got "50 shades of orange" which turned out to be a backyard tanning booth where she gets sprayed orange.. there was another very nasty fight between Amanda and Candice during the comp, and McCrae told Amanda afterwards that she's making herself look like an ass before he went off to run damage control with Jessie, Judd, and others


The guys took the booze delivery for McCrae's bachelor party, which turned out to be drunken hilarity for a few hours, led mostly by Andy who was on point with his comedy.. GinaMarie in her cone of shame and Candice in her clown suit kept things rolling whenever they popped up, and a very good time was had by all.. Amanda finally got her second spray signal around 2.45am, just after she finally got to shower off the first coating.. McCrae joined her.. she was nekkid, he wore shorts, and then his shorts came off and the two of them are back on the tally

I went a little overboard with caps today including some classics, if I say so myself.. you can access my feeds caps by hitting the Twitpic tab up top or along the right sidebar anytime (open the thumbs to get the captions - if you enjoy reading my stuff here, you might get a kick out of some of them), or browse through today's set.. my doggie even makes an a "bitch stole my look" appearance

As always, you don't have to take my word for any of this: get the feeds to watch everything unfold as it happens.. 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


Ratings - Cone, Clown, Spray edition

Ratings are based on entertainment value

The unitard's gotten stale but the clown was a nice upgrade, and the cone of shame was a stroke of genius: brilliant in its simplicity and hysterical in execution. I'm not sure about the spray tan, but Amanda's second music signal woke them all up just as they'd started to drift off to sleep, so that's something.

Sadly, there was another major rabies outbreak today and I think they have to share the blame for that, so ups for the day are downgraded to neutral for the overall. They cast these hamsters who continually let slip things they shouldn't, and they didn't do enough soon enough when the problem became apparent way back in June, and they don't seem to be doing much about it now except helping to fan the flames. Now most everyone's either typing on eggshells or frothing at the mouth, and the whole thing isn't nearly as much fun as it should be.

She's been among the better behaved of them lately, for the most part, but her obsession with hating Candice got in her way today while waiting for the clown suit reveal. Aaryn was expecting and hoping hard that Candice would be angry, humiliated, and miserable but guess what? Keepin' It Real Candi flew out of Diary with the pizazz of a Ringling Brothers professional! You just know that had to irk Aaryn and make her hate just a little stronger. Too bad, so sad.

Won: 50 shades of orange
She had every right to be pissy about being mysteriously nominated a second time, but she earns downs for her extra pissy attitude after the veto comp, and major downs for her reported nasty outburst during the comp - who does that? But she finally cooled off and explained to several that basically she can't control her anger, and acknowledging a problem like that is the first step toward fixing it. She turned out to be a fairly good sport for the actual spraying, all things considered, so she gets upgraded to neutral, but she's on probation.
PS Today's rabies outbreak was due to something someone thought Amanda said about Candice, and it spread faster and wider than any of the season's many scandals have thus far. But if anyone bothered to check the flashback and listen to what she said rather than someone else's version OR what they wanted to hear, they'd find out she said nothing of the kind, nor anything inflammatory in any way. But it's now become 'fact' and it'll ooze out just the same, and that's the kind of thing that ruins Big Brother for all of us. Please people, lay down the torches and pitchforks, put things in perspective, and get a rabies booster. If you're hating on them for being hateful, you're just as guilty as they are.

Huge major easy ups for his non-stop comedy routine at the bachelor party and into the night! Drunken Andy is one of the best drunken hamsters we've ever had, and one of the funniest, and he kept things fun and funny after a not so fun day. If he was able to have a little booze every night, the rest of them would be a lot easier to tolerate.

Won: $5,000, 1 week clown suit
All reports indicate Amanda was the major offender in the veto comp fight but Candice was involved too. Still, she triumphed in a big way by disappointing her enemies when she embraced the clown suit with enthusiasm, a great attitude, and a huge smile. That's all it takes sometimes. She'll almost surely walk the plank on Thursday in her multi-colored suit and squeaky nose, but hopefully she'll be able to keep up her spirits til then.

Won: Sit out 1 veto comp
She wanted Candice's clown skirt, and she wanted some of Amanda's spray tan.. umm no. Whenever she talks game she sounds like she's actoring, and badly, but maybe I'm just not on the same wavelength as her. I don't think she got any booze but she sure seemed like she did. She'd make a great straight man for comic Andy, but she wants all the punchlines. I just don't get her.

Won: 48 hour cone of shame
Right off the heels of her great attitude with them all making fun of her, she wore her cone of shame with a tremendously good attitude, a big smile, and many hilarious methods of figuring out how to do things while wearing it. Spencer rolling Skittles down to her open mouth in a human/hamster skeeball game was just one of dozens of little bright spots that kept coming. She added a towel under the rim since it was rubbing her neck, but I'm afraid the outer edge might end up sawing her fake hair off, and I'm also afraid for her to shower since she could drown. She finally got her hair bleach but will wait til the cone's gone to take care of business. The dark patches in back show through the cone really well til then. Now if only she'd learn to curb her offensive remarks, we'd have a total winner.

Won: 2 night curfew, BBQ party
Her manipulation skills continue to shine in ways we've only seen a handful of hamsters past be able to pull off. That's impressive and awe-inspiring to watch but once again, she usually talks way too long for it to be very enjoyable. Move in, set 'em up, and move out. Also, with two nail parties under her belt, her threatened eye shadow party continues to hang over us all like a smoky cloud.

Big ups for winning the veto when she needed it! This is becoming a weekly tradition this season and that's always fun as it sets the rest of them to scurrying when their carefully laid plans go awry. Suddenly she's gone from being one of their prime targets to being their best friend as they try to woo her vote. I'm glad she's sticking around a bit longer and I hope this pulls her out of her slump and gets her back to being the invisible force to reckon with that she was early on.

Won: $5,000, 24 hour solitary
Once again, he wasn't feeling very perky for much of the day and evening, and he didn't contribute nearly enough Juddisms to the drunken bachelor party as we know he's capable of. I'm glad he won some cash and I'm very happy he's safe another week, but we need him to get back up to full power ASAP to keep us entertained and rabies-free.

Won: $5,000
Ups for standing up to Amanda and telling her how bad she's screwing up, and for going back to being one of us when he laughed at her having to go out to get sprayed in the 3am chill. Nevermind that he dropped his shorts during their shower just before that.. yes these things are human nature, but he knows we're all cringing when they do.

Won: 24 hour megaphone, Bahamas trip
To use my previous analogy, the drunken uncle at Thanksgiving kept us entertained for a big part of the day and night, but he keeps going that one step too far and making us all ask in unison 'oh Spencer, how could you?' He's the big favorite to go up on the block as Jessie's replacement but he should be safe come Thursday. If they somehow end up deciding to keep Candice, they'll boot Amanda instead.

Won: Nothing
He was eloquent and animated in Diary but we didn't get that guy on the feeds. Instead he mostly laid around with Candice, held Bible study in the coach seats, and prayed in the photo booth. He isolated Candice and himself, killing both of their games, and their combined lack of awareness foiled any chance for his 11th hour save plan to succeed. He gave sudden speeches that few understood, but he wore Candice's tassel earrings and Judd's crown equally well.
My pre-season prediction:
Most likely to parannoy, eventually
Fail - others freaked out for no reason more than he did

Won: Nothing
She was a caboose for the mean girl train and when she wasn't straddling Jeremy, she was laying around making out with him, including in her bestie's HOH bed whenever Aaryn stepped away. She took being widowed better than GinaMarie, but she had several days to prepare for it and seemed almost proud of making 'Big Brother history' by using her veto. Otherwise she brought eyebrow adventures, and apologies when she mouthed off, which is more than some.
My pre-season prediction:
Most likely to be intimidated, taken advantage of, and blindsided
Fail, although Jeremy's eviction did blindside her. Taken advantage of is subjective.

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.
My pre-season prediction:
Most likely to get in a fight

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.
My pre-season prediction:
Most likely to namedrop and be generally annoying
Subjective, but I'll take it.

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.
My pre-season prediction:
Most likely to climb on stuff and be told 'Stop that!'
Check, first night of feeds.

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).
