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

Who's on first? (Friday 8/8)

Nicole nominated Caleb & Frankie, and Christine nominated Donny & Zach.. Caleb said he'll just sit down at the BOB comp to sabotage Frankie, who apparently thought he'd never be nominated.. I have no idea what's up with the Team America (fuck yeah?) task - I gather Caleb more or less pawned himself, but that task won't be finalized until Thursday anyway

We've gone from excessive blah to utter confusion, at least for me.. the underlying thread of the many plots I've lost seems to be that they've all turned on Frankie, and that Zach & Nicole have some sort of unlikely partnership brewing.. that one's especially tricky for me to follow since the two of them conspiratorially share all kinds of info, but then Zach runs it back to tell all the guys.. complicating matters, again just speaking for myself, is that virtually all of them continue to whisper everything, whether anyone else is in the same timezone or not, and I just can't with the constant whispers - it's like a nest of buzzy insects

Meanwhile, I finally caught Victoria's full hair construction routine for the first time - Flashback 8/8 2.06pm.. in my opinion, her own hair looks much, MUCH nicer than the stacks of stunt hair she keeps installing, but try telling her that - no really, somebody please tell her

A bit later, a formerly forlorn Frankie came out of Diary all bouncy again, and told Victoria he's really excited about something he's got planned that's not game-related, that she especially will love, and that he feels like "a burden has been lifted" - Flashback 8/8 2.34pm.. sounds like he got permission of some sort for The Frankie Show, in danger of being cancelled, to become The Frankie Has a Famous Sister Show

Caleb apparently ate some candy, but nobody seems to care - Flashback 8/8 7.42pm


The Frankie Has a Famous Sister Show

Did I call that one or what? But first..

The BOB comp started very late again so for the third time this week, BBAD started while paying feedsters remained stuck on Jeffish.. this time it took 50 minutes before they remembered us, but apparently BBAD were only treated to fishies.. when the feeds came on, Zach and Frankie were yelling at each other - Flashback 8/8 9.50pm

Sadly for all but Zach, Frankie put an end to that by dragging all the guys except Donny into the fire room where he told them he's a very famous "social media mogul" and that he's Ariana's brother.. he actually fluttered when he told the girls a bit later - Victoria gave him the reaction he was hoping for.. he told them all he's been lying about his life so much it made him lie in the game too, or something like that, and that he doesn't make money from being a "social media mogul" or from Ariana, yet he's playing BB for charity.. he was so exaggeratedly dramatic, so obnoxious, and so ridiculous about it all, he landed himself on Hamsterwatch ignore, and will get a premature empty wheel when this busy page turns over to the next one.. he also told his Youtube subscribers to post videos from the feeds, thus making it personal - I'm done with him

As for the comp itself, Caleb & Frankie won so Christine remained HOH.. I don't know what the comp was about or what happened with Caleb's threats to sit it out - something did.. Christine, Caleb, and Frankie also won a field trip to meet some football players in a nice tie-in event/free promo for CBS's new Thursday football

Double trouble (Thursday 8/7)

Zach took his spot in the nominee chair early, visibly nervous and chewing his nails.. later Christine took him aside in the pantry and excitedly told him the news he'd already heard last night and reconfirmed today by Derrick, and he seemed to finally believe it - but he also knew they'd all lied to evictees in the past

Julie confirmed they're all at jury now, so it's a 9-person jury again like last year, making them all happy as it means they get full pay.. she also made the possibility of Revive-a-Hamster sound like a sure thing, again like last year.. dual HOH/BOB was put on hold for the night but back in play afterwards

The frantic double-header didn't feel as frantic as usual, and they did a good job of getting last night's switcheroo into the recap.. Jocasta was evicted 6-2 as expected, with Donny & Hayden the dissenting votes - that opened the few eyes who weren't in on it, but there was no time to waste.. they went right to HOH which was an over/under Q&A about random season stats.. Caleb won, surprising many, and he nominated Hayden & Donny.. Donny then won the veto in a ball pit hunt for duckies and took himself off, Nicole went up, and Hayden was evicted 5-2 - Cody & Donny were the dissenters there

Nicole exploded a bit at Christine and others, and later broke down and then calmed down, and went on to win the new HOH comp along with Christine.. Caleb gave Frankie a grilling that had him looking like a scolded child


Nicole & Christine agreed that Nicole would put up Caleb & Victoria, and Christine would put up Donny & Zach (keep that in pencil), and they agreed not to renom each other (we'll see about that).. Caleb got some new clothes, a family photo, and a letter from mom, and he bitched about getting no snacks.. Zach & Nicole had a heart-to-heart where they spilled all the secrets to each other.. Nicole's latest letter was from her friend Kaitlyn, and Christine's was from hubby Tim, of course

Team America (fuck yeah) were given the mission to convince someone to go up as a pawn and then get them evicted, with a stipulation that all three have to participate.. chaos carried on through the night

Diaries deluxe
Usually quiet on feeds
Sometimes pawns go home

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.

PS He easily wins the Best Evictee Award with this.

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.
