This site is about the Big Brother 11 feeds and contains spoilers! It isn't necessarily thorough: it's what I catch and/or what interests me. It also isn't necessarily about who will win, who should win, who's cute or who's horrid. It's about watching hamsters: who's doing what and why, who's fun and who's dull. If they aren't entertaining, get rid of 'em! Thanks for encouraging my behavior.

BB11 DRINKING GAMES
Now's the time to stock up your fridge, wine cellar and/or booze cabinet - the games begin soon!
Hamsters are now in the habitat
Julie Chen will be on Craig Ferguson's 'Late Late Show' on July 8
The premiere is July 9 - the feeds will probably kick on at 9pm PT/midnight ET that night, along with Showtime
CBS shows will air Sundays at 8, Tuesdays at 9, and live evictions Thursdays at 8
Ross (The Intern) Mathews will do post-eviction shows every Friday
I don't know for sure but am guessing/hoping we'll have weekly visits from Craig Ferguson again (even though they've revived the 'no outside contact' catchphrase)

Hamsterwatch BB10 daily index
There will be four teams: Populars, Jocks, Brainiacs, and Offbeats. Big Brother made the initial team assignements.
Reliable rumors indicate a male BB10 alum won the first HOH comp, so he is probably the 13th question mark hamster. Three other alums were also in the house the first night but it's unclear if they left as losers or remain in residence.
Teamies of the HOH cannot be nominated.
Comps will determine living conditions for the teams. The losers will live in the Jail room with lights always on, cold water showers, and slop.
Viewer votes will determine one additional food item the sloppers can have.
Promises of a 'green' habitat have apparently been grossly exaggerated: they still have the washer & dryer (rats!) not to mention tons of TV lights, but they did get recycling bins and a compost machine.
Feeds have a new replay option with the ability to select a date & time to see what you missed - or to rewatch what you just can't believe and have to see again!
|Days 1-3 - July 5-7, 2009

>> Somebody is Head of Household - Somebody is nominated <<
>> Tweeting Big Brother since BB8 - click to follow - latest:
Previously-reliable CornerOffice (who is likely a BB staffer) has posted at RealityBBQ that the teams were assigned by Big Brother as follows: "Populars: Braden, Jordan, Laura; Athletes: Russell, Jeff, Natalie; Brains: Ronnie, Chima, Michele; Offbeats: Lydia, Kevin, Casey"
And "The first HOH will be a former HG. Each clique is assigned one. The HG don't know who they're getting." - which sounds like four hasbeens were there? Are they all still there or only the winner of the first HOH comp?
And "At 11:30 the house had an HOH. You first met him in BB10 and he is sure to add a lot of drama to not only the house but to his clique as well." - BB10 Brian Hart has been rumored as going back in for a few weeks now, and Jessie Godderz is also being mentioned as a possible.. I don't know if Bryan Ollie's been heard from, but he was an endurance monster and a decent supplier of drama - more so than Brian, anyway.. Dan Gheesling could hold out as well and would fit in with the high school theme, but drama? Not so much
Hamsters in the habitat
They probably moved in this afternoon, making this Day 1 for the season countdown - but we know they can be slippery with these things, so I'm keeping it in pencil for now
Even though we'll have 2 to 2½ months of comps and backstabbing leading up to the finale and the big announcement, the big winner is already known: it's sounding like everything from the cast to the habitat is recycled this time, and Alison Grodner's going to laugh all the way to the bank - again
But we'll still watch, and point & laugh, because that's what Big Brother's all about
No feeds til Thursday
Even though they're already making deals & alliances that will set the tone for the season, the feeds won't kick on until Thursday night after the premiere.. after all, they need to take their front door pics with their official BB duffelbags, and their bikini pics by the pool, and they have to learn how to mic themselves & change their battery packs, practice scurrying to Diary when called, figure out how to get their pantry deliveries, and ignore the official Big Brother rule book that's provided for them
They'll know when they go live on Thursday so they'll be on their "best behavior" (a dicey term when talking hamsters) but that'll wear off soon enough, and by the end of that first night of feeds we should have a fair idea of who's in bed with whom - both literally and figuratively
If you sign up before July 9, you'll not only save 25% off the full season price, but you'll have everything configured and short-cutted and ready to go when the fur starts flying
Signing up for the feeds through my links help support the site so I can keep it going all season.. thanks to those who already have, and thanks in advance to those who will
Daily Ratings - Early Impressions edition
Ratings are usually based on entertainment value but these initial first impressions are my guess as to their potential to be entertaining, based largely on the unedited interviews by BB5/7 Diane Henry as linked below, along with other preseason promo, scoops and leaks.

LINES OF THE DAY
Chima: You can't pay attention to the internet
Jeff: Once I meet [people], I judge what type of person they are.. I'm pretty good at their character
Jordan: When I get excited, I talk a lot - and I don't want to get on people's nerves
Jordan: I am a bad liar.. my face always gets red.. I'm terrible at it
Laura: A lot of girls don't give me a chance because they judge me by my appearance
Michele, on having a PhD: I don't have the dork costume on that would give me away
Russell: Walnut Creek is about 20 minutes south of San Francisco (no, it's about 40 minutes east)
