Big Brother 24
dingo's 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 24 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.
Your pal, dingo

Daily Feeds Recaps

Pre-season - June 2022

Recaps of the day's feeds will probably be here, but I don't know how much I'll be able to do this season.

As I often say, I can only do any of this thanks to feeds signups made using my links. Those signups have dropped off dramatically each season for awhile now - I guess a lot of people just keep P+ through the year, or sign up for it directly thru CBS or P+, or via podcasts or add-ons at Amazon or other outlets. That's all understandable, but it means reduced income for me, and I simply can't afford to put in the time it takes to monitor the feeds 24/7 and report them here without some compensation. I'd like to carry on as usual with daily feeds recaps and weekly (give or take) opinion ratings, but we'll see how my signups are.

Huge and sincere thanks to those who have supported this site in the past and will continue to do so via P+ signups, donations, and purchases from my Etsy store. You guys are the real MVPs ♥

IF YOU MISSED what came before, check my previous episode, always linked up top or from my season index, and get the feeds to catch anything you missed with Flashback!

Ratings - First Impressions edition

-Cast basic stats - there are no official show bios this year (what?)
-I'll be posting some random tidbits as I come across them
-See Links of the Day below for interviews
-Complimentary neutrals all around for now, until they earn otherwise

Noms count: original/renom/twist

Withholding the cast until the day before premiere was downright odd, and if they did that to avoid any Garrett/Christie situations and alternates, it backfired when they replaced Marvin with Joseph. But we have them now and we're go for another summer of feeds, fights, and shenanigans. Let's hope they don't disappoint! Preliminary kudos and thanks for giving us first night/first week feeds once again! I'm also very grateful for NO VETS though I'm curious why they recycled the BB11 swimming pool bedroom.

She knows BB23 Alyssa, and she plans to vote with the house. Sigh.

Ameerah Jones

31 - single
Westminster, MD
Content designer

She's a user experience writer who's done work for Etsy, Walmart, Capitol One, which is a pretty good resumé. Will any of that translate to being good at BB? We'll find out.

Brittany Hoopes

32 - married
Austin, TX (orig Atlanta, GA)

She says she's watched every season (which usually means tv-only), and she loves Nicole Anthony. Will she be the resident cute and quirky girl à la Nicole A/Sarah Beth/Bronte or will she be more of a power player? And will she lead hypnotism sessions in place of the usual group guided meditations? Get these hamsters to squawk like chickens and I'm in.

Daniel Durston

35 - single
Las Vegas, NV (orig Ontario, CA)
Vegas performer

When they say 'Vegas performer' they mean Elvis tribute/impersonator, so I'm expecting a lot of Elvis puns from the show announcer. He also plays guitar, bass, piano. His cast pic along with Turner's have inspired me to reboot my Deathrace hair game but to sidestep COVID death charts and the like, I'm renaming it #BB24HairSituation.

Indy Santos

31 - single
Los Angeles, CA (orig São Paulo, Brazil)
Corporate flight attendant

She likely rubs shoulders and serves cocktails to the rich and possibly famous, so she could have some good work stories if they aren't all blocked from feeds. BB is HUGE in Brazil and I get a lot of Brazilians in my mentions who follow our franchise, so she'll probably have a lot of home-country supporters.

Jasmine Davis

29 - married
Atlanta, GA (orig Terry, MS)

One of the few non-singles, she owns a nail company and says she was an alternate last year. She likes BB16 Derrick, BB19 Cody, and BB23 Tiffany which is a really odd mix?

Joseph Abdin

Lake Worth, FL

Another alternate gets on the show, replacing Marvin. It's an abs for abs swap but Joseph clearly has some smarts and his socials indicate he also has a heart. Great qualities for a human, but a lot of us like our hamsters to have some bite. We'll see how he does. He's got potential automatic bonds with fellow lawyer Michael, fellow personal trainer Monte, and fellow Joe, Pooch.

Kyle Capener

29 - single
Bountiful, UT

He dances on TikTok and it looks like he was recruited for us from Instagram. We don't have a great track record with Kyles but maybe he'll be the one. Or maybe not. He likes guns, Trump, and Brazilians - hey Indy!

Michael Bruner

28 - engaged
Rochester, MN (orig Saint Michael, MN)

He's a Hamsterwatcher (always good for bonus points from me) but even better, he's got a great sense of humor and good BB analysis, judging from some of his tweets. And he's seen BBCanada, and he watched OTT - he's one of us! Which isn't a guarantee of anything of course, but it makes me hopeful.

Monte Taylor

27 - single
Bear, DE
Personal trainer

I hope he's better than the last Monte. He studied chemical engineering before he did personal training so he could have talked beakers and test tubes with Marvin, but no.

Nicole Layog

41 - single
Fort Lauderdale, FL
Private chef

She's an ex cop turned chef. That's an interesting mix. She says she won't tell them she was a cop, which is probably a wise decision. She also says she'll be loyal to her alliance - that could work out well for her, and/or be boring for us.

Paloma Aguilar

22 - single
San Marcos, CA
Interior designer

The press release says 'interior designer' but her CBS page says 'home remodeler'. Related and similar sure, but considering they posted so very little about them, you'd think they could get the copy/paste and/or 'upgraded' job edit carried through everywhere. And press pics showed her as 'Palomar Agular' so she may be the most likely to land on the Goof Tally, through no fault of her own.

Joe "Pooch" Pucciarelli

24 - single
Boca Raton, FL (orig Staten Island, NY)
Assistant football coach

He's giving BB23 Brent in his cast pic but hopefully the similarity will end there. If he teams up with Matt "Turner" Turner, we'll have Turner and Pooch.

Taylor Hale

27 - single
West Bloomfield, MI
Personal stylist

The only heavily-rumored pre-season possible who actually showed up. She was Miss Michigan USA 2021 and Miss Congeniality at Miss USA. That latter title indicates a very good chance of getting along well with everyone, which is one of the very best assets to have in the BB house. Let's hope she's also got some backstabs or betrayals up her sleeves as well.

Terrance Higgins

47 - married
Chicago, IL
Bus operator

I love that he's a bus operator, especially if he throws people under it this summer! Along with Elvis puns, I'm prepared for a lot of bus honk sound effects on the air shows.

Matt "Turner" Turner

23 - single
New Bedford, MA (orig North Attleborough, MA)
Thrift store owner

See Daniel re that hair. He was an editor for MrBeast and later accused him/them of bullying. His sister made some cast-reveal-day accusations about him being the bully and while I don't like to involve family, this one is an interesting counterpoint.

Won: Nothing

Marvin Achi


28 - single
Houston, TX (orig Rivers State, Nigeria)
Chemical processing engineer

He's currently on America's Got Talent tho his elimination episode will likely air soon. Is it possible he forgot to tell BB about that, and that's why he got booted just seven hours after cast reveal? We may never know. At least we won't have to hear the show announcer using recycled-from-Rachel chemist puns all season.

I won't be tallying pinkyswears anymore since they are no longer the currency of the hamster realm - pinkies are as likely to be lies as anything else they say these days.
