Big Brother 5 "Position the habitat of your hamster somewhere light and airy,
away from drafts, heaters, direct sunlight and other pets.
Never put it on or near a television, radio or hi-fi or a fridge."

This site isn't about who should win, who will win, who I'd be friends with, or who is cute. It's about watching hamsters: which ones are doing what and why. Which are fun and which are dull. If they aren't entertaining, get rid of 'em!

Big ups to HamsterWatchers who stuck it out to the bitter end! Thanks for visiting the site, and for encouraging my behavior. You & me to the end!



Editors
Finale Tuesday was good tv for compressing three months down to one hour, tossing in suspense, reunions, and some controversy to boot. It was uncharacteristically kind of them to not run Diane's tears 2-3 times as expected, and also to not cast her as the tiebreaker vote, so big ups for both. The live audience wasn't necessary, but as long as they have Amy, Jason, Marcellas, etc. in the crowd why not point them out or at least stick a label on the screen when panning past them? Julie said it's been '82 days of tough competitions, heartache, and triumph' - hardly. That's what the 3 weekly tv hours were, but the 82 days were mostly whispering, eating, pooping, primping, and some highly entertaining escapades that can never be repeated.. more feeds for more reality shows, please! Thanks to all the Big Brother staff for all the fun, especially the cameras & control room, and special thanks to the fishies: the most-watched houseguests and the true winners of the summer.. they never lied to anyone.

Kissed his way to the money, and a lot of nights in HOH room didn't hurt. Easily swayed, equally naive and arrogant; he played both bully and bullied, and never met a mirror he didn't like. He mostly said 'riiiight' and 'that's crazy' but he won and HamsterWatch congratulates him. One tip, Drew: let go of 'I wanted your natural reaction.'

Stranger things have happened, but not many. Our runner-up leaves us a legacy of Cowboyisms along with new vocab words: nervousing, pond, moreless, and actoring, and he gave us the hat trick. His devotion to the lovely April is the true love story of the season.

Her motivation was to win the boy but he dumped her on tv for the money. As tough as she is fragile, feisty & bitchy but pure of heart and never dull. Way smarter than she thinks she is - she earned every penny Drew takes home. Star of the show.

'The Smart One' turned out to have perspective & ethics, and garnered respect for being herself. Overcame ratings-based emotional blackmail and proved that reality tv needs real people.



xKaren
 
First out for playing well, but chameleon strategy is better defense than offense. Elevated the game with empathy, Oscar-caliber acting, and right-on-target rants. Most photogenic by far.



xMarvin
 
Funniest hamster ever. Provided joy, nicknames, dinners, trivia, laughs, insect tributes, golf commentary, and bowling lessons: he's cool & the gang.



xAdria
 
Set off the end-game with 'How long you been dating?' Both pulled off Twingate brilliantly, but A's better as a solo act.



xNatalie
 
They should have kept switching - that house isn't big enough for both of them.



xWill
 
Not quite gay enough for the token gig. I'd like him in real life - but this isn't.



xJase
 
Hamster watching doesn't get better than this guy. Bath buddies forever!



xScott
 
The goon is gone - long live the goon :)



xHolly
 
Unique, fun, annoying, ditzy, and oddly vulnerable. Bless her pointy lil head.



xLori
 
This year's Lisa, but without her luck.



xThe Don
 
Smart or not, he was first out: 'nuff said. Fold your arms and go home.



I need a job. If you like what you see here, please let me know if you've got one for me, thanks.
