This site is about the Big Brother 19 feeds and contains spoilers! It isn't necessarily thorough: it's what I catch and/or what interests me. It's about watching hamsters: who's doing what and why. Thanks for encouraging my behavior.

Day 37 Thursday 7/27 Josh carried out his threat to harass Mark, which he did by banging pots and pans, chanting a circus tune, and hollering. It was no Evel Dick performance and it fell a bit short of BBCan Dallas's "it ain't easy being Big Deezy" but it was fun just the same. Mark was still in a mood from his overnight drama with Elena, and he hid out in the lounge until Cody rescued him and escorted him upstairs. Cody told him he has a daughter (they all missed his eviction speech shoutout to Paisley) and that he'd lost his brother Dillin. After HOH lockdown, Jessica told Elena she has the Hex and she & Cody are safe "for a couple weeks" no matter what (oops, not if she uses Hex the first of those weeks evictions). She also told Elena that Ramses is going but he has no idea, and she knows Matt & Raven were in on it.

If you missed it there's been a very lot going on in there. Catch up with my recaps for last week and/or Hamsterwatch Forum for detailed convos and many, many screencaps.

But first, a plea I always say I can't do any of this without feeds signups thru this site, and my signups are dramatically reduced this season. So if I'm to continue skipping summer in order to monitor feeds round the clock, keep up this site and tweet, I'm going to need some help. If you don't have the feeds yet, click here to get them, or click the signup banner at Hamsterwatch Forum where @UGotBronx updates her brains out, and/or use my Amazon portal for any Amazon purchases anytime, USA or Canada, at no extra cost to you. HUGE THANKS to those who have supported this site thus far and to those who will in future!

Back to our program Ramses walked the plank 7-3 as expected, with Cody, Mark, Elena dissenting and shockfaced, though not as shockfaced as they could have been had the plan not been spilled. Jessica did spill about her Hex to the others on the live show but she was again vague and misleading about it.

Paul won the HOH comp which was Inked & Evicted, true/false about the tatted-up photos they studied last night. Paul wore a shirt that was Kevin's late brother's, and gave a shoutout to him (Richie) after winning. There was some talk earlier about the shirt being passed around like Judd's bear shirt and Roseanne's chicken shirt. Julie and her tissue bondage getup finally told us (but not them) about the consequence for Jessica's Hex temptation: a new comp will run for three weeks, taking place before nominations (Fridays) and airing on Sundays. Participation is voluntary, with the winner earning safety that week and the loser becoming third nominee.

They cut into feeds to run Ramses' exit Jefferview. He seemed okay with going (he was pleasant about it anyway), he said he knew Paul's running things, and he was unaware who Lance Bass is so he was unimpressed that Lance had Ramses in the staff pool. Jeff told him the votes and that Paul won HOH, so Ramses will be back out here with us within a few days.

Josh had a few celebratory rants but settled down pretty quickly, with a few threats to start up again with Mark tomorrow. Paul ran damage control loops with Cody and Jessica, and with Elena, and with Mark and Elena. At one point Mark looked like he was worshiping at the Altar of Paul, which is probably accurate.

Christmas and Jessica had a short convo with friendly words but their manners and expressions both said it was just lip service. Jessica said she was most upset with Raven for lying to her face before the eviction, and Elena said she was most upset about being excluded from the plan she claimed to know about anyway.

Christmas had a gametalk with Alex & Jason, and Matt & Raven screeched in the kitchen. Kevin continued to glide over all, dropping funny and funny-but-subtly-pointed comments here and there. Jason gave a shoutout and sent happy birthday wishes to his wife Holly. There was a lot of talk and guesses about Jessica's power but they were all in the dark as to what it is or how it works. Paul said they absolutely would not cancel an eviction on eviction night, but he's never actually seen a season of BB outside of hotel sequester and doesn't know about Julie's big red reset button.

Mark seemed like he was in a permanently stunned mode, giving one blank and confused face after another. In a follow-up to last night's fight/breakup/whatever that was with Elena, they had another communication breakdown, coming at each other in all the wrong ways and blending blindsides, lies and game stuff with personal. It was another mess and Mark made it worse when he pushed for a hug to make everything okay, and Elena told him not to touch her, she doesn't like to be touched when she's upset. The words and the glare weren't enough for Big Boy to get the hint and he pushed some more, but there was no hug this time. It finally came along later though, when she reiterated don't touch her when mad, he said he's missed her and I think he said he loves her? He went in for a kiss and she said "nope, too close, get off me."

Paul orchestrated a game for After Dark where he gave orders and everyone playing did what he said, like that was something new and different. He got his HOH room at 11.10pm with photos, a Pepperdine hoodie, Radiohead, beers, socks, and a letter from his fave cousin who was just married.

Jessica asked Paul not to make her a Have-not and he agreed, saying she'd already done it. Cody made some kind of pitch to Paul that I didn't really follow, and Paul told him to let him do his work, "things might not make sense to you at first, or they might." Cody retold that to Jessica in a mocking impersonating tone. Pre-nom talks are pretty much moot because of this new comp, so I'm not following them closely at all. Paul told several of them he has a Secret Plan that he isn't spelling out (probably to flush out Jessica's Hex), and that he isn't gunning for Kevin (yay). He gave Elena a very lengthy talk about Mark being dead weight for her in the game, and she tried to turn that into a counseling session. Rewind, repeat.

Ratings - TBA edition

Ratings to be updated later, based on entertainment value

Jefferviews immediately after eviction are all fine and well, but they really need to put them on Feed 4 only, like they did the Live Diaries on OTT. Post-eviction and HOH feeds are among the best every week and we shouldn't be deprived of them for even a few minutes. While we're at it, they should do Live Diaries once a week too. Of all the excellent perks OTT brought to feedsters, one vet in a cast of rookies and no daytime naps were the worst choices to be carried over.

She seemed promising, brainier than most hamsters by far, and she started out well. She earned Mark's devotion over fake chess games and heart-to-hearts, but Christmas and Elena also tugged at him from different directions, and Dominique never got as tight a hold on Josh. Kevin let her host the talk shows, but she was too slick and professional with them, and kind of a drip. That backfired when she put Ramses and then Cody on the spot, and she confessed her job lie to several too early. She brought in more religion than most, and she 'marooned' herself in the lounge, doing a solo telethon for days. She caught on to Paul and told everyone he was a snake, and he made sure she went out the door as a result.

Won: Nothing
HOH 0 - Veto 0 - Noms 2
She gave us a good shockface when Julie spoke her fate, but she hadn't done much to prevent it. She wasn't there long enough to do a lot, but she didn't really do much that was memorable except repeat convos (at lightspeed), plan future shows to be on, and be on the block. Virtually everyone else campaigned their brains out around her while she was at summer camp, so it's no surprise she didn't know who did and didn't vote for her. She wasn't cut out for this game and she also attracted some political attention that nobody needs. Many use BB to escape from that kind of thing for a little while.

Won: 1st eviction safety
HOH 0 - Veto 0 - Noms 1
Like Cameron, there isn't much to say since she left before feeds began. A lot of drama was stirred up by, around, and/or because of her, including a Josh rant we saw on the premiere sans context, and an alleged sabotage lie about a comment Jessica allegedly made about Alex. When Megan got home, she released a statement saying she left because of PTSD from a prior assault. You'd think those things would be discovered and addressed during the lengthy audition process, but who knows? We may never know the entire true story as we'll only have hearsay and edits to go by, but I wish her well.

Won: Nothing
HOH 0 - Veto 0 - Noms 1
What is there to say when they're gone before feeds start, other than it stinks? They were probably wise to get him out because he's a big fan who knows the show, and he's brainy to boot. At least he had not one but two comp-shots to save himself, even though he opted for a third comp to evict rather than the vote that got him the non-coveted first boot spot. He seemed likable enough and he tried some twerkish moves to save himself but alas, it wasn't enough. He dropped a hamster line in Diary which was fun, but anyone going before feeds still stinks.
