Day 92 - Wednesday, September 14

Corey eviction party

Corey and Nicole practiced their nominee speeches, and Nicole did some boo-hooing to him that she wants to go home, she can't win, she doesn't want to be stuck with the other two.. Corey said he'll plant a kiss on her with a reference to Paul's "can't get to first base" comment - feedsters know better but who's counting at this point.. Paul could still pull a fast one and psst to James to boot Nicole, but James isn't likely to do that anyway because of his (alleged) pre-season deal with Nicole, so I'm starting #CoreyEvictionParty early and beginning my celebration

Julie showed us the final veto comp and the major jury house fight between Paulie and Da'Vonne, complete with rare crew appearance(s).. Paul didn't use his veto, and James sent Corey out to Julie's boudoir.. Paul popped the champagne for the Final Three to toast over the credits, and feeds came back a little while later to them alternately laying around, discussing the show and outcome, and whispering in pairs whenever the third wandered off, like Final Threes do

I checked last year's corresponding Hamsterwatch episode and the Part 1 endurance comp came on the feeds at approx 8.40pm on this night.. not so this year, and After Dark ran last Sunday's CBS show in an unfortunate and very disappointing turn of events

Feeds returned approx 10.40pm and the comp was over - they were wearing surf suits with cat-face makeup.. Paul won Part 1 of the final HOH, meaning Nicole and James will go against each other for Part 2, and the winner of that will face Paul in Part 3 live on finale.. Nicole came off their standing ledge and was swinging around on her rope, making the others laugh.. she couldn't regain her footing and came off, and James came off a few seconds later.. James was disappointed in himself, and Paul and Nicole talked about how they've got it in the bag.. time will tell if either's tone changes when they talk with James.. Nicole told James later she'd take him to finals, but she said it without a lot of enthusiasm

Paul coached Nicole for a potential "know your house" comp, even though they haven't done that for ages.. he seemed to know every detail - she, not so much - but it was fun when one feed jumped to zoom in on whatever item they were talking about

Day 91 - Tuesday, September 13

Tick tock

Jeffish loops ran all day Monday and all night, and will keep running most of Tuesday, but they would have run much of today anyway for their final veto comp.. Monday night's After Dark that was taped Monday morning was a shambles: most of them were asleep for most of it, and very few words were exchanged.. Nicole finally brought some Play-doh to HOH in the last half hour and putzed around with it a bit, and nobody bothered with the tie-dye.. they should have gone back to giving them mimosas - that used to get them up and at 'em for this taped show

Julie made it official that Victor was evicted 2-0, and Paul won the final four HOH on a tiebreaker against Nicole after seven "What The Bleep" questions.. reminder for day-count purists: this show with Victor's eviction and Paul's HOH was taped yesterday, Day 90.. feeds came back and we got back on track for these last days

Meanwhile if you've enjoyed this site and/or my tweets, or gotten some use from either this season, you can use this downtime to do some Amazon shopping and help me a bit without costing you anything extra.. start your shopping trip from my Amazon portal for Amazon USA or Canada anytime - thank you!

Another breakup

Feeds came back at 9pm as I kind of expected, rather than the 10pm they'd announced.. Paul had nominated Corey and Nicole, and then he won today's veto, making this penultimate act a bit more interesting and a lot more angsty than it often is.. James was wearing a shirt that said PRANKSTERS with a cartoony Groucho glasses/mustache on it, and Paul's said PELICANS with a perfect likeness of Pablo.. the comp involved running/racing and stepping on proper areas, math, and day numbers of season events.. they said it was difficult, and also it was paused for two hours after it was underway

The angst was everywhere, as Nicole and Corey talked about sacrificing themselves for the other, and James told them he was torn over which of them to vote out.. he also told them he'd vote how Paul wants since he was spared a nomination, otherwise he'd like Nicole and Corey to decide between themselves.. Nicole told Corey that'd be "disgusting, it'd be like Hunger Games".. James went to ask Paul in HOH what he should do, and Paul thanked him for the retell of Nicole/Corey's convo, and said to tell them he hadn't decided yet

Next Nicole went to visit Paul, who told him he'd feel better/safer if Corey goes but they should play up the angst so James doesn't know they're working together now.. Paul pitched a Final Two deal to her, which they shook on.. Nicole talked to Corey and told him much of her convo with Paul, omitting the F2 agreement/handshake part but adding that she'd take James over Paul if she gets the choice.. Corey seemed relatively resigned to going (he has no choice really), but it sounded like he'd been questioning Paul's performance at the comp with production - maybe the two-hour pause was something to do with that? We'll never know, but when Nicole asked him about his speech, he said he might say something about losing "on a technicality" - Nicole suggested he not say that

Paul offered them his room for their last night but Corey prefers anime over HOH.. after their various whispered pairings and Diary comp retells, all four settled in for some cards to play us out.. veto meeting will be live on Wednesday's show just before the vote and eviction

Big Brother OTT, Australian Survivor, BB Australia

We now have more info on the fall season: it will be called Big Brother Over The Top and it will premiere September 28 at 7pm PT/10pm ET.. the press release says the new hamsters will move in that same day, and promises we'll be able to "see everything play out live, including ceremonies and competitions" and that there will be viewer voting power - that might mean fluff votes or it might be something substantial

Of course it'll have 24/7 live feeds, plus a weekly one-hour episode with live evictions on Wednesdays, hosted by Julie.. it's scheduled to run 10 weeks, grand prize will be $250,000, and it'll be exclusively on All Access.. sign up now and you'll be set to watch the rest of BB18 play out plus Flashback to replay anything on the feeds all season as well as the new fall season, along with zillions of CBS shows including BB1 thru BB18.. use promo code FALLACCESS thru September 16 to get one month free


Australia's premiere season of Survivor is underway, and is getting good reviews and positive comparisons to early USA seasons.. you can watch online at Australian Survivor official site.. outside Australia, use HideMyAss and connect to an Australian server

Unfortunately, Big Brother Australia is on hiatus, possibly permanently, but they used to do the hamsters-in-a-house concept better than most.. their 2013 season is my all-time favorite BB ever, and I can't recommend it highly enough.. here's the premiere to get you hooked started.. all episodes are on YouTube but from a few different uploaders.. there is a playlist but it skips a few episodes, so just YouTube search: Big Brother Australia 2013 and remember which ep you're on.. I promise you won't regret it


Julie: We have to stop meeting like this, Victor

Nicole to Corey about deciding themselves: That's Hunger Games, that's like both of us eat the berries at the same time

Corey to Nicole: It doesn't matter, go final three, you want your family to come.. just let me go

Paul to Nicole:
- This isn't a dating show, this is a game show
- If you fuck me over, I will cut your bun off and sell it on eBay
- Your ride or die died, basically

Corey to Paul: If you take me, then that's stupid

Corey to Nicole, about Diary: I hit a wall in there, I just couldn't talk anymore.. just the lines I was supposed to say

Corey about post-finale partying: Sunday? Blackout Corey

Ratings - Final Four to Final Three edition

Ratings are Tuesday's for now, based on entertainment value
VTE = Voted to evict

Tuesday: I can never understand why they do this taped show/feeds blackout but they always do. But nobody seemed to really care this year, so that's something. But where's the tiny table for four? I don't care if the last four are fire-breathing demons, milestones are milestones and traditions are traditions. They certainly kept up the traditions of stuntcasting, scripted Diaries, pointless twists, highly inaccurate edits and the like, so they should have kept up this one too.

Wednesday: I'm beyond disappointed at not seeing the Part 1 endurance, as it's one of the things I actually look forward to in these final days. As far as I know, BB12 was the only other time they withheld Part 1 from the feeds. Why Big Brother, why?

Won: $5,000.25; Care Package #2 nullify 2 votes; Immunity 1st 2 evictions

#1 VTE Victor
#2 VTE Corey
He's still 'voting with the house' or HOH in this case and at this stage of the game, that's beyond ridiculous. But he'll have to single-handedly vote someone out tomorrow, and on live TV, getting the dreaded bloodied hands even if he can and does blame it on Paul. Unless Paul pulls a fast one, James and Nicole are both going into finale when they allegedly and likely had a pre-season deal with each other. Nice summer camp if you can get it.

Won: $2,507.50; Trip to Anywhere USA; Care Package #3 1 week immunity plus safety costume

#1 VTE Victor
#2 No vote (nominee)
She's sad about losing Corey and her bedmate/greenlight [whatever] partner, but she also knows this is Big Brother and she wants to win. Maybe the other guys will tell her Corey kept saying he just isn't into her like that after he goes - nearly all the other secrets came out after their keepers got the boot. I don't like vets showing up ever, and I don't like them outlasting rookies, but Nicole has done more gaming to get to the end than James or Corey, by a lot. I'm glad she's (probably) sticking around because a full week of just three guys rattling around on feeds always gets ugly, and a week of Corey/James/Paul has potential to be uglier than most.

Won: $500; 1 week secret service; Outback dinner (guest)

#1 No vote (nominee)
#2 No vote (HOH)
He won HOH when he had to, and then he won the final veto when he didn't have to. These two wins on top of his priors will go a long ways for those jurors who vote based on comps. For those who vote strategy, his sheer survival, shimmying out of being targeted, befriending most of them, and good old social game/manipulation, he's got this in the bag. I won't be a bit surprised if he turns out to be a closet BB fan/scholar; and if he isn't, he's one of the few rookies who truly figured it out as he went.

Won: $2,500; Care Package #5 $5k bribe (to Victor); Trip to Atlanta MacGyver set; 1 week patriotard

#1 No vote (HOH)
#2 EVICTED 1-0
'Our buddy Denny, he did some shit with Four Lokos, but he went and bought a goat and put it in their backyard, in our - it was our baseball house. And he got fucked up one night and he got some lighter fluid and sprayed it on it, and went and tried to light that motherfucker on fire! He was so drunk. Yeah, and this goat, it was so - it was scared to death, and it was right by the fireplace like this [walks off-cam]. It was just like - it wouldn't even move. Like dude, he wasn't gonna move, he was so scared. We wouldn't - dude, he tried to light this motherfucker on fire! He was blackout, dude.'
- Flashback 6/25/16 11.04pm, told with big smiles and laughter

Won: $5,500*; TV/tablet/phone; 2 Revivals; Immunity 1st 2 evictions
* includes $5k bribe from Corey

He went out early after a failed pre-feeds showmance with Natalie and the disastrous Revolution (buffoons) alliance with Jozea and Paul, but those three were hilarious together, not necessarily intentionally. He battled back like a champ and stuck longer than most revivals. They evicted him again but he battled back again the same night, and almost stuck to the end. He was a comp beast and socialized well, but his bestie Paul drove their social game. He'd have been hated some seasons for his bravado and obsession with Instagram followers, but he stood out easily with this year's slim pickings. He didn't take it too seriously, he had an infectious laugh, and his puppet routines with Baldwin the eagle were a comedy highlight, as were his impersonations.

Won: $0.25; Care Package #1: Never-not; Immunity 1st 2 evictions

She was an interesting hamster, all fluff on the surface but with more substance and smarts than she let on. She was a better sport than most about James's pranks even when they left her covered in mess, and her showmance with him was unexpected and refreshing, at least at first, before their spat/makeup cycles sped up and became repetitious and predictable. She managed her self-esteem issues well but the BB habitat has a way of magnifying things like that and allowing them to take over. She knew more about what was going on than many, she was a champ on the spinny endurance, she won the Black Box HOH, and along with Bridgette and Michelle, she was instrumental in ending Paulie's reign of terror and BB career. She was a breath of fresh air, especially early on, and she'll be missed.

Won: $0.25; Care Package #4 co-HOH; Black Box 30-second bonus; 8 days pixel suit; Outback dinner

She was equal parts volatile, boring, unpredictable at least til the end, when she slept up to 20 hours a day. She said 'superfan' way too often but her BB knowledge was often faulty. Her feuds with Bridgette and Nicole were childish and tiresome, as were her self-esteem issues and crying, but she embraced Paul's #VomitCrybaby tag after the spinny endurance. She had some great moments like Drunken Big Meech, winning OTEV against Frank, and making pew-pew explosion sounds behind Paulie when she 'blew up his game'. Some of her nasty online posts preceded her, and her sisters' Twitters were a show of their own. She earned a #Deathrace2016 honorable mention when she put her stunt hair through the wash. She's the 22nd USA/Canada first-in to not win.

Won: $1,000*; TV/tablet/phone*; Make apple pies (6); 8 days pixel suit; Outback dinner
*Per feeds/not shown on CBS

He gave Cody & Derrick more airtime than they had on BB16, and had the most raging case of HOHitis we've seen in ages, never mind most of them just let him think he was driving so they didn't have to. His smugness was out of control, he was obsessed with saying Tiffany was Vanessa and had issues with Bridgette being a feminist, and he self-directed a World's Worst Haircut to launch his mini-me Paul era. He cuddled and more with Zakiyah while plotting against her, berated her when she asked what's up, and bragged that he 'boned' her all over the habitat. He peed in the hot tub, refused to make pie, cussed non-stop, cried when he lost, and he picked up Julie a foot off the ground. Good riddance 'type thing'.

Won: 8 days pixel suit; Outback dinner

She was super perky and upbeat, with a dark side that was fun and fascinating. She was in a pixel bikini when feeds began, and she formed a solid friendship/alliance with Bronte and Natalie. She baked cookies nonstop and gathered intel for the Spygirls as everyone overlooked her and gametalked around her in the kitchen. Michelle hated her over a misunderstood eyebrows comment, and then Bridgette became everyone's target when she buddied up with Frank and won an HOH and veto the same week. But she survived two evictions after his, and openly confronted Michelle about their drama, eventually winning her over. She embraced Tiffany's Cabbage Patch tag, and she'll be missed.

Won: Outback dinner (guest)

Stunningly gorgeous plus photogenic, she came in as a fan since BB3 but said she was up for a showmance. She focused on the latter when she took a shine to Paulie, and that progressed from awkward overlong hugs to bumping in bumpercars. He gave her several verbal beatdowns but she kept going back for more, even as he plotted her demise with his boys. She also took a shine to a stuffed giraffe and gave it a birthday party, and she formed a couple friendships that might last beyond BB, notably with Da'Vonne and Michelle. Game-wise she didn't do much and she went eight consecutive shows with no Diaries. She had a Murphree-esque mirror routine but she avoided #Deathrace2016 - best stunt hair to date.

Won: Outback dinner (guest)

She lasted longer than last time, but not as long as she hoped. Like Frank and Nicole, she started gaming too hard and turning on her fellow vets, when the four of them could have steamrolled the eejit noobs and gone all the way. Da'Vonne played better than some, planting little poison seedbombs against others that took root and grew, but they came back to bite her. She gave us good Diaries again, creative turns of phrase, hair flips, deadly if-looks-could-kill glares, reaction faces deluxe, and occasional belly laughs. Now and then she dropped her game face and gave us a funny, relaxed one instead, and it was always good to see.

Won: 8 days pixel suit; Outback dinner

He made a rookie mistake by playing too hard and fast, way too early, when he should have laid low and enjoyed the safety that was handed to him. But he played for his life last time, and he was mentored by the sidekick rather than the master. His social game was the best of the bunch till he got in trouble for slapping asses and being mouthy, but he's not a bad guy overall and his exit was a fatal hit for the feeds. Pixels were his third costume, a hamster record (until Nicole tied it). His friendship with Bridgette was fun to watch, with funky movie retells and baking, and every random topic under the sun.

Won: $2,500

She came in looking and sounding so much like Vanessa it was spooky, but it didn't take long to realize her game was more Audrey-style chaos and sabotage than poker-faced strategy. Paulie's the only one who didn't get that memo but that's Paulie for you. Two weeks in a row she didn't campaign to save herself nearly as much as others campaigned for her, but when she transformed into Free Agent IDGAF Tiffany it was a joy to behold. I'm surprised #They let one of the six stuntcasts go before jury, but it just goes to show the whole thing isn't as rigged as some believe.

Won: Immunity 1st 2 evictions

She went in saying she'd use behavioral sciences to maneuver her way to the win but she spent most of her time with Bridgette and Natalie who were barely playing BB. Her huge confession to them about being the 'secret nerd' and aspiring mathematician was just silly, and she'll always be remembered for not knowing what 9x9 is. She didn't bring much to the table beyond her abnormally high voice and hair bows, and even the hair bows didn't stick around. She seems like a pleasant enough person but like so many others, she should have gone on a dating show instead.

Won: Nothing

One of the most delusional hamsters ever (and that's saying something), he was convinced he owned the house, he was the messiah of the newbies, the savior, the sanctuary, and the next Mario Lopez. He wore his doggie comp suit for days, but mostly he just wore underpants. His gametalks with Paul and Victor were pure comedy since they had no clue whatsoever how far out of every loop they were, and The Jozea and Paul Talk Show concluded with the two of them roaming the house looking for a camera that worked. Jozea's shtick got old fast for many, but he was feeds gold for trainwreck fans like myself.

Won: $2,500

I didn't like having to combine an intro with an obit, but that's how the dog biscuit crumbles. He seemed like a fun guy with potential for fun feeds, especially his admission that he'd be 'willing to flirt if necessary' but he also might have gotten into heated political discussions, and BB is not the place for that. He didn't technically get Jodi'd since he got to compete twice, but gone before feeds is never good, and neither is trial by combat. Too bad the token older/regular person/fan got the first boot but young, pretty, hormonal hamsters are all the rage anymore.
