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

Team Izzy (Tuesday 9/9)

Izzy arrived with a ding-dong at 9.04am, letting herself in with treats and an introduction card, including the fact that feedsters voted her in as opposed to "America" (implying CBS viewers) that all the previous feedster votes said - that was refreshing

Izzy was greeted by shouts and squeals, and she turned out to be quite a little charmer: friendly, sweet, and well trained.. I decided to overlook Caleb's babytalk at her "wanna go catch some hogs?" in favor of Victoria holding her, playing with her, and proclaiming how sweet she is - a nice milestone for someone who's afraid of dogs.. Izzy also starred in the weekly picture-taking sessions, and rightfully so.. all in all this was a perfect treat for Izzy, hamsters, and us

After Izzy left, Victoria did a superb acting job when she performed Derrick's script for Frankie about how much she's disappointed in and doesn't trust Derrick anymore - Flashback 9/9 4.32pm.. the goal being, from how I understand it, that Frankie as tiebreaker would decide to keep Victoria tomorrow as his preferred 2nd place in finals, but of course the real goal is for Victoria to stick around as Derrick's preferred 2nd place.. also there's probably not going to be an eviction tomorrow, so it's all moot, and this subterfuge may or may not come back to bite anyone

The air show confirmed another easy peasy $5k for Derrick & Frankie for their Eeek a Mouse TAFY task, even though it neither "wore down the competition" nor lasted "all night".. it didn't even last the 5 hours CBS said it did - more like half that.. nice work if you can get it

Observation skills (Monday 9/8)

Theirs are sorely lacking, as it took them half an hour to notice the message on their living room screen: THE NEXT LIVE SHOW BEGINS IN 48 HOURS.. the countdown flatscreen in the Have-not/button room didn't make them speculate enough to satisfy The Powers That Be, or something.. they pretty much forgot about their Thursday Night Football promo comp, and leaped to all kinds of wacky conclusions including thinking they reset the entire CBS schedule by pushing their button

If the supposed "superfans" among them were really fans or even semi-observant viewers, they'd know a Wednesday eviction often happens in late season - I wouldn't expect them to know that one's taped on a Tuesday, but that's not the case this week anyway

Cody, Caleb, and Neapolitan Ice Cream Cone wanted to lower the boom on Victoria to tell her she's the next casualty, but Derrick counseled them to hold off on that, while assuring Victoria he's got a plan.. later he told us he was planning to do "his version of Dan's funeral"

The doggie-for-a-day is scheduled to arrive Tuesday morning, as announced on a scroll on the feeds in an apparent attempt to get a few viewers back.. they called it "the debut of Big Brother's first house pet" - I guess they forgot about the pug, the chickens, the pig, the bearded dragons, the turtles, the tarantulas, the guinea pigs, and all the fishies that have come before.. BB1 pug Chiquita/Pugita was even evicted (banished) on a live show, and left through her own little doggie door.. see for all the pets, all the visitors, and so much more

Out of titles (Sunday 9/7)

They had their veto meeting, and it was on feeds - veto wasn't used.. it wasn't nearly as fun as the last veto meeting on feeds, when BB5 Drew stared thoughtfully at the photo wall, then asked "should I just keep staring?" and so on.. today's had none of that awkward fun: they only leaked the actual ceremony part that will air on Tuesday's show, yawn.. I've got literally nothing else, sorry

Still more of the same (Saturday 9/6)

The veto comp was the faces puzzle formerly known as Morph-o-Matic, and it ran into BBAD yet again.. they ran it separately, so we were treated to Caleb shouting at us from the beehive, Derrick talking to us from the fire room, Victoria sorting towels and snacking in the pantry, and Neapolitan Ice Cream Cone talking himself up in HOH.. eventually they all finished, and Frankie had won

The Eeek a Mouse TAFY task began at 3.22am, with Frankie cussing up a storm to accompany his overacting.. they'd already planned to stay up til dawn (which they often do anyway), and Derrick said they'd been told 3am to 6am would suffice - that's hardly "all night" in my book.. this one should be a fail, but who cares.. Cody and Victoria saved things somewhat: he jumped onto a chair and she made a gummy bear & honey trap

Ratings - All About Izzy edition

Ratings aren't much, but there's not much to work with

The reasons don't matter, however transparent they may or may not be, but bringing Izzy in for a few hours was exactly what was needed.

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

He enjoyed the dog, even if he did make hog hunting jokes and got louder and squeakier as the day went on. Still, he's a dog guy and he was good to Izzy.

Won: 24 hrs kicking self, 1 week dinosaur

I don't know when or why he started shouting all the time, but it didn't help when he kept doing it to and around Izzy. Still, he had fun with her and was definitely affectionate with her.

Won: $25,000, 5,000 hollas

He too enjoyed Izzy and even got a bit choked up when she left, and while he took time to play with and scritch Izzy, he also had a nice relaxed attitude around her. He's a dog person too, with a pug and a boxer - that's a nearly perfect combo.

Won: $20,000, football trip

Won/didn't use veto
Still on ignore

Won: 48 hr Adam & Eve with Caleb

She's made many comments about not having been around or liking animals, and has even said she's afraid of dogs. But she warmed up to Izzy and patted her, held her, fed her, and played with her, and that was a huge win in every way.

Won: Football trip

She was the non-actormodel and longtime fan we always hope for, but many hated her anyway. I didn't mind her at all, despite her constantly saying this or that was 'the most disgusting thing/person on the planet' - many of us do the same. She laughed a lot, always a good thing, and she petted Cody too much. Her hubby Tim was one of the best relatives we've ever had, taking on haters like a superhero swatting away mosquitoes.

Won: 1 week frog, 1 week Germitard, revival

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: $15,000

One of the most likable hamsters ever, complete with ongoing Lines of the Day contributions, a rare combo. He had a nasty side but didn't often let it show, so he got an angelic edit once they stopped painting him as a backwoods buffoon. He went to bed early and missed nearly all of the gaming, and he complained about nobody ever coming to talk to him. I missed most of his morning shows and he lost me when he refused a TAFY task, but he was still the one to watch, at least when Zach was asleep, and he'd be fun to hang out with.

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.
