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 12 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.

Two hour finale is September 15
Lane opened Pandora's Box which gave him $91.17 and gave them all no cups or utensils, one night of sock puppets, and dancing
Brendon opened Pandora's Box which gave him a night out and let Rachel back for 24 hours.
Matt opened Pandora's Box which held the return of the saboteur (in the form of Ragan) to WREAK HAVOC, and gave him diamond veto for 2 weeks.
Britney opened Pandora's Box and got an hour of BB10/11 Jessie insulting her while the others had a luau
Ragan won $20k for performing 3 tasks a week for 2 weeks undetected. His identity will be revealed to them at the finale.
I use Stabo/Staboteur/Stabotage because of the typo in an early official CBS BB tweet
Annie & Monet were sequestered until Andrew was evicted. Nobody knows why.
The first saboteur was Annie. She'd have won $50k if she lasted 5 weeks undetected.
Ragan's tattoo says 'Quelquefois un rêve est ce qui vous fait un esclave' ('Sometimes a dream is what makes you a slave')
Have-Nots have their own room again, cold showers again, slop again, plus additional food items decided by viewer votes.
Nobody knows why Paolo isn't there.
The winner of BB12 will win $500k and 2nd place gets $50k. Hamsters earn $750 a week including pre-show hotel and jury sequester.
The habitat has 52 cameras and 95 microphones.
The recorded Big Brother in-house announcements are the voice of producer Don Wollman.
All feeds stay on one 'scene' when someone's in Diary.

No news, and bad news (Monday)
I think they're sleeping up to 20 hours a day lately - at least it seems like it
They got the camera for the last time and like everything else, they aren't too enthusiastic about it anymore.. Lane got out his do-rags and hats, and said he wanted to look "hard" for the pics.. the do-rags made the rounds to all of them, but none of them looked very hard
They were locked down all day with some heavy construction going on in the backyard.. they speculated a lot about what's going on between that, no veto meeting, and camera, blog & farewells today.. Britney guessed right, that Tuesday will be the "live" show (although it won't be on CBS til Wednesday)
The bad news is the feeds will be blocked early Tuesday until after the show airs on Wednesday, meaning we'll be blocked from the endurance portion of the final HOH comp - the bums
Tucker is missing! (Sunday)
Lane's boxer Tucker, who he's talked about often, has gone missing in the Decatur, TX area along with Vivian, the family's Maltese
If you're in the area, please be on the lookout and let his sister know if you see them
Update Tucker was found late Sunday, and Vivian turned up Tuesday morning - both are now home safe, yay!
Showers for all
Britney had one upstairs with lots of visibility through the smokey glass, and later Lane did his doo-dah again in the downstairs shower.. this is the stuff some feedsters wait for, so those folks are probably happy tonight
Britney bounced back and was "one of the guys" again, but she was working on them all most of the day and night, and too subtly for them to notice.. I don't think she has a chance in hell of staying and I don't think she thinks she does either, but she is headed for the jury and will have some influence on them - the three guys don't seem to realize that
For their part, they spent most of the day talking themselves up again, their future fame and fortune, and their trip to Steamboat.. in other words, same ol' same ol'.. they finally got a deck of cards, but they didn't play much - after all that begging for them
Back to nothing (Saturday)
Instead of getting them up early, amping them up for the veto comp, then making them wait around a few hours, they let them sleep late, and they sat around most of the day while hearing the backyard construction.. most everyone figured it would be a midnight comp, possibly the overdue Morphomatic, but they went off to play in the early evening.. Hayden won his first veto, which was some sort of puzzle involving Q&A of the season
Earlier Britney broke down a bit, telling Lane she felt awkward because the guys are all friends but he's her only bestie.. neither she nor Enzo cracked up when they didn't win - yet
It's hard to say whether the Have-not shark or the flamingoes are the most interesting in there now, but the shark gets a lot more face-time on the feeds
"We called it The Brigade"
The feeds came alive one last time when the guys decided to tell Britney about their little arrangement.. Hayden was conveniently in Diary as Enzo & Lane explained it to her with glee, back from Day 2 when they formed and named themselves The Brigade
She took it in stride and didn't seem overly surprised, although she was uncharacteristically quiet and chewing her nails like crazy.. Hayden finally showed up and acknowledged it was all true.. and then they told her she's leaving next week
Whether she saw that coming or not - or wanted to see it or not - only she knows, but she heard it loud and clear, got up to leave, in tears, and shunned a hug attempt from Hayden.. she said on her way out "How does it feel to know you just wasted three months and you have no shot.. that you came all this way for no reason?"
The guys patted themselves on the back for the next hour or two she was in Diary.. when she finally came out, Lane tried to tell her he'd never lied to her, and that it was only game
Three coins in the kitchen (Friday)
They got the little table on schedule, and later spent a long time behind trivia, most of which remains a mystery except that they had a pig there
When the feeds came back, Lane, Britney & Enzo were tearing the house apart: it turns out they'd each had 90 seconds to hide a coin, and they set to finding them.. if one's coin was found, he or she was out - the last one would get $10,000
By the time we got there, Enzo had found Hayden's so he was exiled to the backyard, and they'd been told they could limit their search to the kitchen area, but still it went on forever in one of the funniest couple hours all season - they pulled everything out of the cupboards and drawers, and still couldn't find the remaining three coins.. Britney even took the trash out to the backyard and started riffling through it - it looked more like a scene from "Hoarders" than "Big Brother" for awhile
Eventually Diary started giving them hints behind bubbles, and Britney found Enzo's so he was out.. Britney & Lane bantered back and forth about giving up their locations and splitting the money but were told they couldn't do that.. they were running close to nominations time and Diary was clearly nudging them to wrap it up, plus they were exhausted from the search.. Britney found Lane's coin behind bubbles, possibly with a heavy hint, and won the $10k
Hayden nominated Britney & Lane, but these last noms are all but irrelevant: it's all about the veto.. the noms blackout lasted about five times longer than necessary
