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

Halfway point (Sunday 8/3)

It's hard to believe we're only halfway and there are still 11 of them present - it feels more like the final dog days of a season

They did their photobooth - no hippie glasses or Viking hat this time, nor any props at all.. Donny and Jocasta puckered up with @_isamiam_, one of this week's fan selfies, and the rest of them also paraded through and did their snaps - most of them don't seem very excited about it anymore

Not much else went on besides a lot of psst-pssting about plans for this and future weeks, plus a lot of he said/she said as always.. Christine was back to pretending to be Nicole's BFF, but I don't think Nicole's buying it anymore.. it sounds like Christine won't be using her veto but we'll know for sure tomorrow.. Hayden's the latest to walk around looking like a homeless person.. Caleb & Victoria's stint as Adam & Eve came to an end, but not before he had to don a shirt to attempt proper sequencing for a Diary about something or other.. never mind they had him doing Diaries on the show with shaved head throughout the BOB comp - talk about spoilers

Whirled peas (Saturday 8/2)

They got their slop supplement, "pea lime pie", as voted by feedsters - it won by a landslide 50/50 vote.. it consisted of various formats of peas, edamame, limes (plus juicers) and pie crusts.. Nicole named volunteers Hayden, Cody, and Frankie as Have-nots.. Adam & Eve (Caleb & Victoria) round out the sloppers, but they don't have to sleep in the ice room or take cold showers

Caleb, Victoria, and Christine were selected to play for veto with Nicole, Zach, and Jocasta, with Frankie as host.. much whispering and scurrying ensued, like it does, and Nicole got all worked up reporting to Hayden just before the comp that Christine had told her he had made out with Victoria and that he loves her.. Nicole said "even if it's true - it's not true?" Hayden assured her it wasn't, and she continued "to toy with my emotions like that is a bad friend".. agreed, but it can make for good feeds - here's hoping


Hopes dashed again

Christine won the veto in a comp that included comic book covers of all of them and zip lines, but the night was a comedy of unfunny errors.. feeds were down four hours until After Dark time, and then they stayed down for an additional hour while After Dark continued without us - what? After Darkers let us know that the comp was still underway, and the four who weren't in it had been locked in HOH all that time.. they smack-snacked between TVGN commercials

But that's not all: while the endless Jeffish loops continued on feeds, After Darkers had a series of audio leaks from the comp, including Zach throwing an angry tantrum, and then BBAD showed 20 minutes or so of fishies! A trilogy for the goofs tally.. maybe it explains where all the booze went

Christine & Cody went into their cuddling routine, Frankie continued his inappropriate routine, Caleb showed off his juggling skills, Zach continued rehearsing his nominee poem, Derrick continued running interference and/or damage control all over town, and Nicole had her bed invaded by various sucker-uppers.. I still have no idea when or why Christine stopped pretending to be her BFF

None of that did much to help the angry mob of "fans" who forget this is just a TV show.. many of them didn't like the comp results or the intermittent technical feeds problems, and some got so vocal and nasty you'd think they'd just lost $500,000 - it was last year all over again.. you have to wonder what those folks do with their ugly attitudes the rest of the year

Won: Nothing
A stunningly gorgeous model, she lasted longer than the hamster in that slot usually does, but she exited on another unanimous vote, and before jury. She wanted to play a clean game and that usually doesn't work out so well on this show. She was a good sport about pranks, including the antiquing shown here, but she'll mostly be remembered as the object of Caleb's dreams, and I do mean dreams.

Won: 2400 goals
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.
