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

Party down (Wednesday 8/6)

Feeds were down a couple hours for them to prepare for and have their halfway party.. they had pizza, photo cake, cookies, music, and booze, as usual - sloppers and Have-nots included.. most of the guys were already back to laying around when the feeds came back, and our long national nightmare continues, at least for now

More later, if anything happens - oh snap, it did


House flipper

Things jumped into high gear in a hurry, like they sometimes do - Flashback 8/6 9.01pm.. this cast seems to lay around 23 hours a day but that other hour is a doozy.. tonight's round robin kicked off with Nicole giving Zach the rundown about why he's in danger, while Caleb started telling Frankie they shouldn't boot an alliance member (and a vote) again, which Frankie took to Derrick.. Derrick told us "we're fuckin scheming, feedsters!" and that he couldn't get Cody alone without Frankie or Christine horning in

He finally did get a quick whisper with Cody, with instructions that they'd all meet later, but Cody went rogue and approached Christine with all kinds of info new to her.. Frankie and his underpants horned in there, and then Derrick finally rejoined them with the result being they'll vote to keep Zach, along with Caleb.. since Derrick's got Victoria in his pocket, she'll be an easy sixth to make it certain, and that'll be that.. Zach slept through it all, but #ZachAttack trended USA even without the help of his poem.. not surprisingly, Derrick was the one who did some pre-emptive damage control with the others - sometimes I think he's the only one thinking about jury votes

It's not often we get 11th hour flips but it's always exciting when we do, regardless of how or why they came about.. this is why I never count votes early in the week

Cornhole everywhere! (Tuesday 8/5)

CBS isn't the only corporate entity to provide logo-fied cornhole for its people: Twitter does too!

I was lucky enough to be invited to Twitter headquarters in San Francisco by a couple Hamsterwatchers who work there, @jillblaz and @aaronhoff (see their feeds command center), and today's the day I went.. I know, right?! So cool!

Aaron & Jillian were great hosts and we had a fun chat over lunch about all things Big Brother present and past.. afterwards they showed me around a bit, including the big roof garden for employees to get some fresh air, with lawn, and cornhole? Yep! Nobody was playing at the time.. I had to sign a non-disclosure agreement to enter the building, so I'm hoping I don't get sued for spilling this closely-guarded secret

Thanks again to Aaron & Jillian for a great time! and for giving me the opportunity to actually leave the house


Meanwhile back in the habitat

Victoria plucked Hayden's nose hairs and eyebrows, just in time for the camera to come out - see the Updates section for caps of all that, and Nicole wrote her blog and tweets.. Jocasta snuck up on Hayden, causing him to spill his tea all over himself - Donny didn't miss a beat, saying "you got TEABAGGED!" which sent them all into hysterics

Psst-pssting carried on, like it does, but not much else did.. Zach still doesn't know he's got a reservation to meet Julie on Thursday, but he might be starting to suspect - most of these hamsters aren't very good liars

No veto for you (Monday 8/4)

As planned, Christine did not use her veto.. it's the first time this season it hasn't been used, and many are split between hating her because Frankie didn't go up, hating her because Zach will likely get the boot, and just hating her to be hateful.. others are split between shaking their fists at "no big moves" and shaking their fists because Zach will likely get the boot - nominating him was a big move, if you ask me.. the rest of us are just waiting around for something to happen

So far we've been following last year's schedule and if that continues, this week's two evictees will go to jury and we'll have Revive-a-Hamster to bring someone back in a couple weeks.. I suspect the dual HOH/BOB situation is now over but we'll find out Thursday

Meanwhile, the new exclusive vote for feedsters was posted, and it's another food poll.. remember the pre-season example they'd posted asking who should do everyone's laundry? That sounded silly at the time, but something like that would be more than welcome now

A very dull and quiet day revved up a bit when Derrick went to work on Frankie - Flashback 7.16pm.. in true Derrick fashion, he planted a garden of seeds in a short time including reaffirming the loyalty between the two of them, and he worked up to getting Frankie to think Zach must go, by way of letting Frankie know that Los Tres Amigos (Frankie, Zach, Christine) were not a secret

Retells ensued, like they do, with Derrick letting Nicole, Victoria, and Cody know as much as he wanted them to, and Frankie getting to Cody after that for a long chat about Zach pitting them against each other.. Nicole finally cracked and shared her HOH wine.. she got a bit sippy and had a loud, funny convo about dating and relationships with Zach & Hayden

The way I see it (which could very likely be all wrong) is this is the second week in a row where Derrick has had to accept Jocasta staying when he'd rather she go, since he can't control her votes like he can so many others.. rather than put himself at odds with the dissenting voters, he accepts defeat, and then he talks everyone into going along with the new plan.. the masterful part is that he makes them think they thought of it themselves.. brilliant

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.
