Big news about Big Brother Over the Top

The fall season Big Brother Over The Top begins September 28 at 7pm PT/10pm ET exclusively on All Access, and I now have more information about it.. we were told viewer voting would impact the game and it's true: the first one is whether BB17 Jason Roy or BB18 Jozea Flores will join the cast

In addition, we now know viewers will determine the winner, but they aren't going full international style: there will be a weekly HOH who will determine which hamsters are safe each week.. I don't yet know if the hamsters will evict themselves or if that'll be viewer votes

Live eviction shows hosted by Julie will be Wednesdays at 7pm PT/10pm ET.. there will be weekly recaps before those shows, as well as Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, all at 7pm PT/10pm ET.. Julie will interview evictees on Thursday afternoons (times will vary - she's a busy lady)

Safety ceremonies when HOH will declare who's safe that week will be live Saturdays and Sundays at 7pm PT/10pm ET, and there will be live Diary sessions Tuesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm PT/10.30pm ET, and we've already heard comps will air live on the feeds

And of course it'll have live feeds for everything else! BBOTT will have 13 hamsters, 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 it from the start, along with anything in Flashback from BB18, along with zillions of CBS shows including BB1 thru BB18.. reminder, they recently launched a new commercial-free option

Day 99 - Wednesday, September 21

"I guess live feed is done"

In case anyone forgot, feedmasters gave a gentle but symbolic reminder that this was finally it by rounding out three feeds of the slumbering finalists this morning with their big DEPARTURES sign

They were woken up and told we'd be leaving them "in 30 minutes".. they showered, primped, Paul washed dishes and James swept the floor.. Nicole and Paul said thanks for watching, but we (foolishly) waited for them to gather before feeds shut down and make it more formal like they have the last couple years, but then Jeffish came along and that was that - a sucky farewell for a sucky season.. we laughed when Jozea said "I guess live feed is done" way back in June, but we all said the same on this final day of feeds - maybe he really is the BB prophet

When the house pics came out, I thought this was one of the best.. I assume it was the underside of the skybridge but I never saw it or heard it referred to on feeds.. I figured this would be a good place to make use of it.. it's no secret this wasn't the best Big Brother season, and interest waned early for most.. for those who stuck around, there were some fun feeds moments and my Extracurricular Tally below is more packed than many seasons (or that could just be me adding more items to it)

It was a rough season to get through, partially because there were way too many trying to emulate BB16, and failing.. there were too many who were unfamiliar with the game and while that isn't necessarily a deal-killer, it did backfire this time.. there were too many showmances and while that's boring to watch day after day, luckily we didn't have to listen to them slurpydurp.. while many despised many of them, for me it was Paulie and Corey who were utterly unwatchable

Everything started out okay, with Jozea for comic relief like we've never seen, and a side-versus-side mentality resulting in split votes.. but the "vets" side dominated the competitions and before long we were left with predictable noms and unanimous evictions.. even the potential blindside evictions were spoiled by friendly tip-offs by those afraid to play the game of Big Brother and get bloody hands.. nonetheless, many viewers contracted rabies once again, often making it seem like we were watching a group of racists, rapists and serial killers rather than boring lay-arounds

But all that said, it's another season under our belts with the next starting up in one week.. super big ups to @UGotBronx for tireless updates and screencaps once again! Thanks also to @89razorskate20 for invaluable alliance charts and @clamperls for Diary tallies, @attwx for everything at, and @EvelDick and @mccraechum for their insight and support.. thanks to everyone who sent me goofs or funnies or bad hair screencaps, and most of all my thanks go out to you who read this site, especially those who get your feeds here, and/or made donations, and/or use my Amazon portal (good anytime!).. special thanks as always to Lucy, Trixie, and Msfubi

Finale, finally

Once again it was too much to pack into 90 minutes but they did: recaps, Parts 1 and 2 comps that were too rushed to appreciate how fresh and cool they both were, Dr Will whacking the jurors over the head at the annual candlelight vigil, and the long-awaited Part 3 which was the giant scales and picking one of two responses for how jurors completed sentences.. it took eight questions, and Paul beat Nicole 4-3 for the final HOH.. he evicted James as planned, citing the fact that Nicole had been telling him what James was saying all week but James hadn't done the same

The jury was trotted out and James was sent to sit with them, they asked their questions and Paul and Nicole answered them as each had rehearsed for what they expected would be asked.. then they gave their speeches as they'd each over-rehearsed them

Votes were placed, pre-jury evictees were trotted out, and Julie read the votes: James, Victor, Michelle, Bridgette voted for Paul to win, and Corey, Natalie, Paulie, Zakiyah, Da'Vonne voted for Nicole, giving her the win.. she was shocked and thrilled to hear Julie tell her she's the first BB US female hamster to beat a male.. Victor won the viewer favorite prize, as sloppy coders on the CBS site accidentally let leak this afternoon.. Natalie and James were the runners-up


Backyard interviews were live on the feeds with Jeff and his dollar store gifts, and following are a few more

Australian Survivor - BB Australia

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


Paul: What's up live ballsacks, I gotta say bye to you in 30 minutes? Much love America

Natalie: Nicole got Jozea out but I'm sorry, Mr Jenkins could have gotten Jozea out

Da'Vonne to male jurors: [Nicole] was Gepetto and y'all were Pinocchio

Victor to Paul, Nicole while voting: You're probably thinking I'm going back in the house any second

Paul to Jeff: If I won being somebody that I'm not, I'm a loser, but if I got second place being who I am, I'm a winner

Final obits all around
VTW = Voted to win

Without question, this season wasn't one of the best, and it definitely ran too long. The cast was mostly lackluster with disappointing stuntcasts, and both gameplay and entertainment value were lacking. Feeds blocks were better than many years but too many comps blocks ran too long, and lack of discipline for repeated rule-breaking punished us again rather than the hamsters for talking about things they shouldn't. This is always a problem with mixed casts: vets know there are no repercussions for singing or talking about Diary, production, etc and the rookies quickly learn that from them. We did have some fun and refreshing new comps while keeping some of the classics, but several of the longer endurance ones were withheld from feeds for no reason.

Roadkill added an interesting new element but it also added many additional hours of blocked feeds, and it didn't end up affecting the game one way or the other. Care Packages and the secret room with its Round Trip ticket were also interesting new ideas but poorly executed, wasting a lot of potential for greatness. There were no field trips, no TV or movie screening, no grill!, not many booze deliveries, and not much extra cash doled out, and no luxury comps other than the carnival event. That was also blocked from feeds, but it brought the only visitor (Ziggy Marley), and it gave us the only time one of them (Paulie) was erased from an entire episode, again for no reason. Another pre-feeds evictee was a lousy 'twist' that wasn't fun for anyone, especially Glenn.

The air shows kept game to bare minimums and the social interaction storylines were adolescent and repetitive. The bulk of the air shows was comp footage with stiff and scripted Diary retells of same. They overlooked much of the 'good TV' potential they did have with this cast, notably Bridgette, Paul, Victor, in favor of building up some of the more awful characters and gagworthy showmances.

But it's not all bad news. The house decor was the best in years, with a cohesive and well-executed theme throughout. The whole Have-not concept needs a major overhaul but the carnival room was well done, even if they missed the theme boat by not making it a baggage hold. It's just too bad they already did airplane seats, as that would have been the best fit. 99 days is too long for even the most hardcore fans, but they did deliver our summer crack once again and we're grateful for that.

Won: $502,507.50; Trip to Anywhere USA; Care Package #3 1 week immunity plus safety costume

She often admitted she summer-camped her first season so many wondered why she was brought back, but she said she came to play this time. And she did play, but mostly when she was in danger or thought she was, but it was a good defensive game as she managed to stay off the block until the end. She also said she wasn't going to showmance again, but then she spent all season in bed with Corey, which was disastrous for her social game (and her image and reputation out here). She joined and left alliances like crazy and she targeted mostly females, which is usually suicidal strategy for the lone female standing but it worked out, along with winning comps at the end. Along with BB18, she won Deathrace 2016, making her the first two-time winner and new reigning champ.

Won: $50,500; 1 week secret service; Outback dinner (guest)

He came in loud and brash, and buddied up with Jozea and Victor for some unintentionally hilarious early feeds. He adapted better than most to changing atmospheres and survived being targeted many times, and he played the difficult but textbook 'floater' game extremely well by floating to those in power and winning them over. He ran his catchphrases 'pissed', 'friendship', 'your boy' and 'never cared' into the ground, but that's how catchphrases work, and 'never cared' will be useful forever. He won comps when he needed to, often against the odds, and he worked his ass off to win over Nicole during the final week, but that turned out to be unnecessary as the choice was his. I think he'd have won against James but 'it is what it is'. His secret service task was a season highlight, performed with flair each and every time.

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

EVICTED 1-0 - VTW Paul
He spent the season pining for Natalie and pandering for social media followers and a repeat of his BB17 viewer favorite win. His and Natalie's flirtmance was often cute and fun to watch, until he got her to join him with 'hi America' Diary-voice speeches to us every few hours, and they had a rough falling out when they were on the block together. He did a lot of scares and repetitious pranks early on, but he didn't repeat the fun things like the weekly games/activities he put on with Austin. He won a lengthy endurance but it wasn't on the feeds, and other than that HOH week, he was a 'coaster' not a 'floater'. He barely gamed at all, not even campaigning to Paul and/or Nicole who controlled his fate in the long final week.

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

VTW Nicole
'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: $30,500*; TV/tablet/phone; 2 Revivals; Immunity 1st 2 evictions
*includes $5k bribe from Corey

VTW Paul
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

VTW Nicole
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

VTW Paul
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

VTW Nicole
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

VTW Paul
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)

VTW Nicole
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)

VTW Nicole
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.
