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 16 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. Thanks for encouraging my behavior.

Four-three-two-one (Sunday 7/13)

Sunday was a lot of not much for both gametalk and goony stuff.. they did their photobooth selfies and they did their napping - this cast has more overnighters than we've ever had before

I don't think any new progress was made on the Team America (fuck yeah) task.. Derrick suggested Frankie step it up a bit there but he said he thought he'd wait a bit "until it spreads" - umm memo to Frankie: that's not how it works, you are supposed to earn the $5,000


In other/lesser news, Jocasta recovered and rejoined the others.. Brittany spent a long time fighting her hair, upping her standing in Deathrace 2014.. Nicole had a pink bow and belt added to her frog, making it even cuter if that's possible.. Frankie got nekkid at least three times today, two of them while chatting with Caleb.. Have-not Devin took a cold shower outside, lathering up and scrubbing all his parts in excruciating close-ups, whooping and hollering the whole time.. the ants continued their relentless assault, sacrificing a few to the frozen foods so they could take over the garbage - Victoria was actually surprised by that and wondered why they'd be in the trash.. the horrendous mess in the kitchen got cleaned up again in a group effort by a few of them - it won't last.. still no booze deliveries


As always, @UgotBronx has a lot more detail of all this and more in the Updates section, or you can get the feeds to watch it unfold for yourself


Luck of the doomed (Saturday 7/12)

Against all odds (but par for the course with BB), Devin was picked to play for veto, along with Donny and Christine.. Jocasta was still weak and under the weather, so Donny played for her

We haven't seen so much serious prep for a veto comp for quite awhile: Derrick and Caleb both painted anti-glare on their cheeks, and Frankie helped add a Bible reference to Caleb's and the initials of Derrick's wife & daughter to his.. Devin paced and sat, glaring at cameras and making at least one let's get going/hurry-up type hand gesture at them.. Christine and Donny both seemed relatively relaxed.. the rest of them primped and joked, like they do - Amber and Cody shared a good, hard, squeezy hug at one point

Donny won the veto in another puzzle-type comp with points - it sounded like the giant dice apparatus I posted awhile back.. a crowd gathered around Jocasta's bed to give her the good news, and Cody did a little strip tease for her.. that led to a muscle/beefcake show with Cody, Caleb, Frankie, Hayden plus Zach as emcee.. it was silly fun with the usual phony accents and homoerotic humor these guys are becoming known for.. Zach kept referring to Caleb as "Beast Mode Cowboy" just to rub it in a bit - Flashback 7/12 4.25pm

They got their delivery of offal burritos - offal being tripe in this case - and Amber, Devin, Caleb, Hayden volunteered for Have-not duty.. Derrick tried to get the Team America (fuck yeah) task underway by telling Victoria that he heard Zach is Amanda's cousin, but Victoria ran off on so many other tangents, I don't think it sunk in.. Donny tried to kick it off with Nicole, who didn't seem impressed.. other than that, the evening was pretty much more of the same

The quiet late night exploded unexpectedly when Nicole told a few of them that Donny had told her "something" odd, leading them all to agree that Donny's sketchy and Victoria swearing he's "America's Player".. a few minutes later Nicole told Christine the "something" was the (fake) Zach/Amanda story

At the same time, Zach got all wound up and told Frankie that Donny wasn't going to use his veto, and Frankie ran that right upstairs to Derrick, who'd been sleeping.. Derrick then told us how gullible and paranoid this group is.. meanwhile, the ants launched not one but two major assaults on the kitchen today - hamsters never stand a chance against them

Ratings - Calm to Chaos in 60 Seconds edition

Ratings are Saturday's, based on entertainment value

I get that they have BOB comps now to run on the Sunday shows, but they still stick with the tiresome Have-not thing for no real reason. Remember when they had food comps for various food groups or days of the week? That worked okay. I'm all for making the hamsters suffer, up to a point, but this one's really run its course. Also, is this Big Brother Boardwalk Empire? Bring back the booze deliveries, please.

I can't take much more of her everlasting monotone complaints about who she doesn't talk game with. She has no game that I can see, except hanging onto Caleb's coattails for 'protection' while she complains about his unwanted attention in the next breath. Now she seems to be encouraging Cody, so we might get that in duplicate.

She keeps saying she shouldn't keep talking about her personal business as she continues to talk about her personal business. I know more about her life than any of the others, and I barely pay attention to her.

Beast Mode done failed him, again, and this time he might go home because of it. He couldn't get Amber's attention doing handwalks and flips for the midnight crowd, and he doesn't even notice that she goes out of her way not to notice him, or the fact that he's usually wearing something of hers.

She's in the background far too much, but she's funny when we do see her. Her laugh is delightful and it travels through the feeds to whatever convo they've chosen for us to watch.

He perked up some today by doing a strip tease for Jocasta and by being a big participant in the muscle pageant with the boys. He and Amber are getting cozy on a regular basis lately but it never lasts for long. Maybe they'll step it up and soon: they can go off and be pretty together and we'll get Caleb's head exploding.

He tried to get the TAFY task off the ground with Victoria, but that derailed and he ended up listening to her dating problems and Bomb Squad paranoia instead. Later, Frankie woke him up to deliver some Zach paranoia, and Derrick dove right into gametalk without missing a beat. And then he talked to us, like a good feedster-turned-hamster should.

The cheese stands alone.

Super big ups for another veto win, especially when both Devin and Caleb needed it so badly and swore they'd win it. Everyone loves an underdog champ, and this guy just keeps rubbing their arrogant noses in it.

He doesn't seem to be taking not being the center of attention all the time as well as some of the others. He remains liked by all of them, as far as I know, but he stirs up more shit than anyone, including Devin. Derrick and Donny both tried to launch their assigned TAFY task, but I don't think Frankie did.. what's up with that?

Good sport, fun and funny guy, aware of most things going on in there but laying relatively low.. he's a keeper.

She spent most of the day horizontal but finally started to roam around a bit, still looking a bit green, but more or less upright for a few hours. She might be the first nominee to be saved by being sick in bed.

Won: 1 week frog
I thought she'd told the late night hammock group about the Zach/Amanda story, but she just told them that Donny told her 'something', and that's ideal to keep them wound up and paranoid. Later she told Christine the actual fake rumor, so TAFY's one third of the way there.

Derrick came right out and told her this isn't a dating show, but I don't think she gets it yet.

He was a good emcee at the muscle pageant but more than that, he got Frankie all wound up about Donny not using his veto, and for no apparent reason that I know of. He's a bit much most of the time he's awake, but he's invaluable when it comes to stirring them up and keeping them spinning their little wheels for us.

Evicted 10-2
Won: Nothing
I kept hoping for the spitfire she plays on Twitter & Instagram to show up but it didn't until the veto meeting blowup. She was well on her way to being a perma-pawn but she stressed about not being able to win comps, and then Devin happened and out she went. She had a lot of entertainment potential and while we were robbed of most of it by her early exit, we'll always have CALTORU.

Won: Nothing
She blew up her game prematurely and spectacularly, and then her alter ego Alex and his 'big ass balls' sealed the deal. Supposedly she beat someone with 150k Twitter followers (plus 15 million backup) in a public vote, but that went splat just like BB12's saboteur Annie. Joey was lively and personable, a worthy member of the first out club, and she easily leads the pack of hamsters with unnatural hair colors.
