Big Brother 15
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.
Your pal, dingo

A new hamster (Friday 8/1)

I kid, I kid - it's just a staffer caught on feeds in the pantry

Donny nominated Caleb & Victoria, and Nicole nominated Zach & Jocasta, as planned.. Caleb & Victoria won the BOB comp, ensuring their safety, and throwing Donny back into the renom pool.. Christine hosted the comp in a "Pee Wee Herman outfit" - they all said she did great.. it was a dominoes theme, and it sounds like they had to build a path through various punishments.. it also sounds like falling dominoes happened

The winners got the repercussions: Caleb & Victoria are on slop for two weeks, they'll be chained together in Adam & Eve outfits for 48 hours, and Caleb has to have his head shaved by Victoria.. she "apologized" to Derrick for not being able to hang out with him for two days (which presumably means she'll also stop planking on him)

Caleb whined and whinged about the shaved head, saying over and over how bad it'll look on him - this from the guy who wore an angry onesie with toy crown for two days.. he also said "what if" he has a derogatory tattoo on his scalp, and hamsters and viewers alike ran with that (he doesn't).. repercussions that went unawarded included 24 hours of manure baths when the signal sounds (really?) and having to sit out one or two HOH comps

Caleb & Victoria got their tether and Adam & Eve outfits, which were a lot skimpier than most expected (and they started falling apart immediately), but both were good sports about them.. Victoria did the honors of shaving Caleb's head, with everyone gathered round.. when it was done, Caleb was fine with it, and the stupid crown came back - Flashback 8/1 7.18pm and 7.58pm for the outfits and haircut

Duckface day (Thursday 7/31)

The usual Thursday primp-a-thon makes for a crowded bathroom when there are still 12 hamsters, and today was no exception.. apparently Team America (fuck yeah?) is planning to decline this week's task at Donny's request/urging, so there goes our fun.. Caleb gave Amber another banana speech that was ridiculous even by his standards - Flashback 7/31 3.09pm

Team America (fuck no) declined their task, thanks to Donny, and Amber was evicted 9-0.. Nicole and Donny won the HOH comp, which was true/false about the video clips they watched.. they ran 12 questions on the show and it came down to a "without going over" tiebreaker that won't be seen by CBS-ers until Sunday.. Julie announced double eviction next week


A new regime, finally

Nicole held a few meetings and took a nap, and Donny spoke with almost all of them.. they got their room(s) around 10.33pm, and while I'm not happy with Donny taking away our fun by turning down the hinky vote task, it was nice to see him be the center of happy attention with all his goodies.. he got overalls, PopTarts, an orange "Gilligan hat" and Journey's greatest hits, while Nicole got pickled eggs and Luke Bryan.. both of them got junk food and candy for days

Donny's letter from girlfriend Christine was one of the best we've heard in years, and he alternately choked up and giggled reading it.. Nicole's was from her friend Mariah, and Caleb may have started developing a new crush on her pic - great, that's all we need

They more or less decided that Donny would put up Caleb and Victoria, and Nicole would put up Zach and Jocasta.. they wanted to "match" each other for BOB purposes, and they have an eye on getting Frankie gone through the backdoor.. as always, keep it in pencil

As if Caleb didn't already have enough problems he's not aware of, he told a story about flipping a table while drunk in a bar when he'd come home from Iraq because people were speaking Arabic - Flashback 8/1 1.29am, or read the transcript

She was the rawest recruit we've had in awhile and she didn't do much homework, which worked against her in a big way. She seemed to have pretty good game instincts and may have done some real damage if she'd been better prepared. She'll be remembered for her high bun as well as the few times her hair escaped it and landed her in Deathrace 2014 hall of fame, and for sticking with and completing that brutal soccer task when she didn't have to.

Won: Nothing
He has a daughter.

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.

Victoria about Diary: They always make me do something with like princess or something - it's just funny, I just go along with it

Caleb to Victoria: I'm not spending 8 hours a day in Derrick's lap, we're going to have to compromise

Zach: If Frankie or anyone brings up my name in a negative light...
Derrick/Cody: We got you, bro

Jocasta to Victoria: You'll be tied to the best person, you'll get the most stories ever

Caleb: ..chained to a nincompoop

Julie: This romance is just plain hopeless

Donny: Sorry, America, about the mission, too risky

Amber: Caleb, just stop talking

Derrick to Donny: Nobody says nothing about you because you're stone faced all the time.. you don't really work with anyone

Hayden: There's just something about you today..
Nicole: You're annoying

Donny to Caleb: If she picks so-called weak players, and you got chosen and saved yourself, you wouldn't hold it against me as bad as if you were against strong players?

Donny reading his letter: I miss you so much.. [giggle] ..I miss your kisses

Hayden to Donny/Nicole: I think Frankie is the root of basically everything

Caleb: The next table over to my right filled up with people that's been trying to kill me for the last year and a half. And they're like - in Dallas they're everywhere, there's mosques and stuff everywhere
