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

Break (Monday 8/25)

I'm taking a few days off while feeds are quiet.. Cody did not use his veto

Now's the time to get the feeds for the rest of the season: just $10 will get you to the end


Victoria hits the deck (Saturday 8/23)

Her wisdom teeth problems continued, and when she woke up to go into the toilet, she went down.. luckily Nicole was in the bathroom and checked on her right away, and called Derrick - Flashback 8/23 11.14am.. with Caleb, they carried her to Diary where a medic saw her and gave her some pain meds and a glucose IV - her blood pressure had dropped.. she was back after an hour or two of being tended to, feeling visibly better as she did her retells.. fortunately she wasn't drawn to play veto and neither was Caleb - he hosted.. all the others played

Donny announced a new Team America (fuck yeah) task to Frankie and later to Derrick - Flashback 8/23 12.31pm and 2.53pm, saying that they were to come up with their own mission and viewers would vote on whether they passed or not.. since nothing's posted on the CBS TAFY page, nobody knows as of now if this choose your own adventure task is for real or not, but mad props to Donny for creativity if not.. he suggested they fiddle with the renom to save him if he doesn't win the veto - Derrick & Frankie didn't think much of that idea when they talked about it privately


More of the same

Cody won the veto, which was a stay or fold about how many ducks, pinwheels, etc were displayed or in containers.. he also won another CBS cross-promo event: a screening of their new show Scorpion.. he selected Donny and Nicole as his two guests to watch it with him, since they're both nominated and Have-not.. Frankie congratulated him like a two-year-old and/or a horny humping dog, like he does

Like most evenings lately, the rest of the evening was a lot of nothing.. the three went upstairs to watch their show and stuff themselves with candy, and they shared the leftovers with the others - there was a ton of it.. Victoria continued to gradually recuperate but remained very low energy, even for her

The only highlight (or lowlight, depending) came after a very lengthy Donny Diary, when he approached Derrick about the TAFY task and his fate - Flashback 8/24 12.45am.. it was after Donny's bedtime and he really isn't very good at making pitches, and Derrick broke the news that things didn't look good for him this week.. Frankie came in before the two of them could discuss the task much, and so the three of them decided to go ahead with the play, a retrospective or parody of the season to date scheduled to open (and close) Sunday night for BBAD.. Frankie left, Donny and Derrick both choked up when they parted, and Derrick remained behind to sniffle alone for a bit

Ratings - Game & Currency edition

Ratings are based on thin air and done with mirrors

Everyone was hoping for an endurance like last year including the currents and jurors, but no such luck. The highlight of course was Julie getting dumped in the ALS challenge. Even though she had no ice cubes and they used it as a CBS cross-promo, it was good to see her step away from Chenbot for a couple minutes and cut loose into her The Talk persona. But really, wouldn't it have been more fun to see a BB personality do it to her? This is where they could have utilized Jeff, but I guess he's not ready for prime time.

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

His game is loyalty and his currency is one vote, and that's all they're keeping him around for. He still makes me laugh a lot for his ludicrous analogies and ridiculous stories, but I'd rather see BB5 Cowboy again than the Beast Mode/Creep Mode version: at least he gave us new vocabulary words we can use.

Won: Football trip

Her game is shifted loyalty and her currency is one vote, and that's all they're keeping her around for too. She might have been able to do some damage if she'd hooked up with Nicole again plus Zach and/or Victoria, but we know how that turned out. Now she's just passing time until she gets Britney'd. I don't think she's the satanic succubus that some do. To me she's the non-actormodel 'regular person' fan we're always hoping for, and yet she's hated. Maybe that's why they keep casting actormodel wannabes.

Won: 24 hrs kicking self

His game is following the leader plus flirting, and his currency is one vote. Like most of them, his leader is Derrick, only it's a lot more blatant with Cody. He's BB14 Shane all over again, from the good looks and part-time actormodel background to the total lack of BB knowledge, questionable ambiguity, and easy moldability by those in charge, and he looks perfectly set up to finish around 4th place like Shane did.

Won: $15,000

His game is playing to win and his currency is trust. Like the very small handful of expert puppetmasters who came before him, he's got all his ducks lined up in a row on the path to $500,000. And like them, he's got to start doing some tricky juggling and fancy footwork about now, as well as hoping luck's on his side. He's really only got two potential roadblocks on that path and they're both nominated, so luck appears to be on his side for the moment. It helps that most of them are dumber than rocks, but as numbers continue to thin, one or two might start noticing they're getting got.

Won: $15,000

His game is being a nice guy and his currency is greatly devalued. I continue to have mixed feelings about him because he continues to complain about nobody talking game to him before or talking to him at all now, yet he continues to isolate himself with his non-adaptable hours. Being such a reality TV nut, I'm surprised his social game doesn't have more aspects to it, because more are needed here. I do enjoy his personality though as well as his one-liners, and it's probably in his own best interests if he escapes this den of vipers before things turn ugly. He'll be just fine after this whether he returns to his orderly offline life or whether he decides to become a social media mogul.. yep, I'm serious. He could pull it off.

Won: $15,000, football trip

His game is stardom and his currency is counterfeit. He remains on Hamsterwatch ignore because of his obnoxious, pretentious, name-dropping, one-upping, limelight-stealing, everlasting narcissism, and his constant inappropriate words and behavior. He's also doing his best to promote every negative gay stereotype possible. In short, #STFUFrankie.

Won: 1 wk frog, 1 wk Germitard, revival

Her game is savvy subtlety and her currency is fluctuating. She's proven she can win comps and take on the big targets, despite her small town naiveté and fun personality. But her reputation among the ruling regime now is liar and 'war mongerer' and that probably can't be repaired unless she gets Derrick gone. If she survives this week, she'll need to rely on comp wins and luck to go the distance. Rachel won that way, but on her second try.. usually that's a blueprint for third place.

Won: 48 hr Adam & Eve with Caleb

Her game is tagging along and her currency is winner's insurance. Several of them understand the value of that currency now but Derrick saw her first and brought her under his protective wing when they were still making 'who?' jokes. I find her humorous, both intentionally and not, and I find it especially funny when Derrick has to run longer and longer damage control laps around her high maintenance insecurity. I feel for her wisdom teeth problems - I wouldn't wish that on anyone in this setting - but I shake my head over her being more worried about her swollen face than she is about the pain.

Won: Germany trip
A kooky combo of erratic, volatile, and endearing, he was unique in every way. He slept much of the time but when he was awake he was as unpredictable as they get, a rare and valuable hamster quality. He'll be remembered for his Victoria's ever-present pink hat, cuddling with Frankie, for being the TAFY 'escape goat', and most of all for playing a pretty crappy game yet ending up a huge fan favorite anyway.

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.
