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

TAFY thievery and fallout (Sunday 8/17)

The three Team America (fuck yeah) guys completed the first part of their task, having hidden something from everyone in the recycling bin: Victoria's robe, Christine's stuffed tiger, Caleb's boots, Cody's hat, and Zach's gator shirt, plus their own stuff consisting of Donny's visor, Derrick's hat from home, and Frankie's glitter.. never mind that the bear and glitter aren't items of clothing

They wanted to get the bunny slippers but claimed they couldn't.. by the way, the bunnies aren't looking too good these days.. TAFY had planned to post a message about the missing items Monday morning, and blame Zach

But as often happens in there, things got ahead of themselves: Cody discovered his blue hat was missing, and he went berserk while the CBS show was airing.. the rest of them started discovering they were missing things too, and a house meeting ensued - Flashback 8/27 5.55pm for the first of three parts.. from there it was a two solid hours of chaos, shenanigans, ridiculousness, hilarity, and rising tempers as they hunted all over the habitat.. mining hats came out(!) and Zach and Victoria were alternately blamed

Victoria still wasn't aware her hair/makeup coverup robe was gone so one of the TAFY guys took a favorite necklace, and Christine was still on the wrong track about missing pants until she realized her stuffed tiger was gone.. despite the tragedy of all fingers pointing at Zach (and logically so, when reasons were laid out), it was hilarious overall, culminating with Zach "confessing" to having taken everything and then stealing the cue ball from the pool table.. eventually Cody & Caleb looked in the recycle bin and found the hidden stash - Flashback 8/17 8.06pm


The HOH crew had planned to warn Zach he'd be going up and out at some point tonight, but he beat them to the punch and confronted Frankie about it, who confirmed.. Zach acknowledged it'd be better for Frankie's game to get him out rather than Victoria, and said how lucky he's been to have been here at all plus made it to jury.. Twitter exploded however, with #RenomRule trending #1 worldwide - never mind the fact that the rule telling nominees they'd go up has been broken most weeks, or that the two HOHs aren't allowed to reveal their noms to each other.. even Ariana and Momma Grande got in on it - oops

Zingtonium (Saturday 8/16)

The Zingbot veto comp is always memorable because of the zings.. they tend to run from silly to lame, but sometimes Zingbot scores a direct hit that has as many repercussions as the comp outcome

Thanks to this exclusive pic, we know there will be ZingCell batteries involved - whether as integral comp parts or decor, we'll find out.. "Size BB" is a nice touch

In a major milestone, they got the middle-size table for eight.. it came loaded with a nice spread including candles and flowers, and Transylvanian goulash, which turned out to be blood sausage, canned pumpkin, and onions.. Frankie named Christine & Victoria as Have-nots, and proceeded to start calling it Tranny goulash


Family dinner

They got their zings plus a visit from Kathy Griffin who also delivered some, and Frankie won the veto.. it sounds Zingbot came in giving props, and had to be rewired in a build or puzzle affair where they had to light up lights

Frankie was zinged about living in his sister's shadow, Victoria's were about always looking in mirrors plus not playing the game, Derrick had one about his looks(?), Christine was zinged about her tattoos, her glasses, and being attached to Cody, Zach's was about wearing pink and cuddling with men, and of course Caleb got one about Amber

They had planned to talk over all the zings at family dinner but they got sidetracked by Ariana and Kathy, and that led to storytime starring a poop tale from Cody, a dog-licking hubby story from Christine, and an extended ass waxing story from Caleb, so those are all the zings I got

The TAFY task got underway prior to all that, with Victoria's robe being lifted and stashed in the recycle bin.. more later, maybe

The plan as of now is for Frankie to veto Caleb and put up Zach to send him home to jury, but it's only Saturday.. also they aren't expecting Revive-a-Hamster on Thursday

Ratings - Dwarfs edition

Ratings are based on a 77-year-old movie

This one's a given, right? When there's a blame game going, a witch is usually involved.

Won: $5,000, shaved head, 48 hr Adam & Eve with Victoria, football trip

Dopey to a fault.

Won: Football trip

Of course she's Happy - it's that laugh.

Won: 24 hrs kicking self

Sneezy because there isn't one called Snorty or Farty.

Won: $10,000

Doc, the one who knows what's going on and nudges the rest of them into doing what they're supposed to do.

Won: $10,000

Grumpy doesn't really fit (although he can get salty), but that beard.

Won: $10,000, football trip

Still on ignore.

Won: 48 hr Adam & Eve with Caleb

Bashful of course, the one people tend to forget.

Won: Germany trip

Sleepy because that's what he does most, and because there isn't one called Volatility or Unpredictably.

Won: 1 wk frog, 1 wk Germitard
She was ingenuous without being cliche, refreshing and adorable, and she wore both costumes equally well. She was flattered & surprised to be a flirting target, and her game and/or guts were praised by Ian Terry, Dick Donato, Andy Herren, and Dan Gheesling, which is pretty high praise. Despite some very stiff competition, Nicole is easily the winner of Deathrace 2014, and she'll be missed.

Won: Nothing
He was the nice guy they all liked, and it's always rough to lose that guy early. Slightly immature with no shame, he was extremely good-natured and responsible for most of the just-for-fun activities and spontaneous silliness. He was cute with Nicole and a perfect combo of Jackass and hamster. He brought a lightness to the feeds that was missed when he left.

Won: Nothing
She didn't bring the holy wars I feared but she did speak in tongues. She cried a lot but she also laughed a lot, and she did great Diaries. She'll be remembered for her bow ties, her choir robe/portable changing room, and most of all her judgemental, IDGAF, side-eye, and the hell you say expressions.

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 500k 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.
