|This site is about the Big Brother 14 feeds and contains spoilers! It isn't necessarily thorough: it's what I catch and/or what interests me, and it 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. If they aren't entertaining, get rid of 'em! Thanks for encouraging my behavior. Your pal, dingo
Jodi was evicted
Willie is HOH
Kara & Frank are nominated
Shane won veto
Ashley, Danielle & Shane are Have-not

CBS shows will air Sundays and Wednesdays at 8pm, and live eviction Thursdays at 9pm.
Big Brother After Dark airs midnight to 3am nightly (1am to 4am Thursdays) on Showtime (SHO2) in USA, and on Global Reality and/or Slice in Canada at various times - check your local listings.
BB14 prizes are the same: $500k for the winner and $50k for 2nd place. The others probably still earn $750 a week including pre-show hotel and jury sequester.
The coach of the winner gets $100k. Returning veterans probably get more weekly stipend and/or a flat amount to show up.
The habitat has 53 cameras (up one) and 98 microphones (up three).
The recorded in-house announcements are the voice of producer Don Wollman.
All feeds stay on one 'scene' when someone's in Diary.
The Glass House premiered June 18 on ABC and will run for 10 episodes. The winner will get $250,000 - half the usual BB winning amount.
Apparently the glass hamsters go into hotel sequester on weekends - no, I don't know why.
Big Brother Canada premieres February 2013.

Good times ahead (Thursday 7/12)The feeds kicked on to all of them scurrying around talking mad game - not my favorite thing, especially when there's 15 of them and we're just learning which one's which.. I find it's a lot easier to just let that stuff wash over you and absorb it gradually than try to get all the details down this early.. I'm determined to get this site back to something fun rather than an overwhelmingly huge obligation
I wasn't expecting comedy from Joe, but he broke into a skit that had Janelle, Britney (hidden in the middle) and Wil roaring - that's the stuff I love.. Janelle's tight with Britney and very anti-Boogie, and Janelle & Wil look like BFFs.. recall that her game has suffered in the past from having too much fun with her BB BFFs.. the three of them are funny together and were up late along with Willie
Teams make things easier in a way as they're built-in alliances, but side alliances are forming all over.. a few odds & ends I've picked up, with the help of my chatters: Frank and Kara were nominated, and Ashley and Danielle are Have-nots.. they've had a coaches' comp which Boogie won, and apparently from that he chose Ian for auxiliary immunity (most likely the "special power" announced on the show).. the coach of the reigning HOH sleeps in Pandora's closet.. the veto comp is Friday, with JoJo hosting - she wanted to know what her costume will be so she could match her hair & makeup to it
Ashley brought us the first tears (already!) - she has her period plus back spasms.. she whined a lot instead of being the wacky we expected, and she needed help moving by the end of the night, either from the spasms or the flexaril she took for them.. she was given permission to sleep in HOH bed rather than Have-not: she did look like she was in pain, but maybe she's that good
Kara cried too, tucked into bed under a pillow - I don't know what her problem was, but it wasn't a very stellar start for BB14's big name.. they know she was Playmate of the Year so that's out in the open.. unlike Ashley, Kara wanted to cry privately - later Dan pep-talked her for a very long time
Danielle told in great detail about some of her issues with her dad (already!) involving drunken rages, and later she retold it to somebody else.. I don't want to downplay whatever she went through, but she seemed surprisingly candid about airing her family's dirty laundry to a bunch of people she just met, and all of us
Most of them think Ian's annoying and Janelle's working hard to keep it that way: she knows he's a big threat for mental comps (her specialty) and she's got Britney doing the dirty work via catty funnies about him to everyone.. it sounds like Ian's been something of a pest, like they had to bring their annoying little brother to camp with them
I didn't see much of the other ones but my first impressions were that Boogie was overly aware we were watching and was very "on".. Jenn also seemed out to impress, but she admitted in her pre-show stuff that she's here to promote herself and her band.. JoJo's something of a Rachel 2.0 (sequins included) but time will tell if that's accurate.. Dan, Frank, Joe, Willie, and Ian weren't very visible at all on whichever feed I was on, and while I didn't see much of Shane, I'm pretty sure he's the one who will finally pull me over to the dark side of Allison Grodner's famous Love to Hate mentality
It's very early, but I'm more optimistic about having a good season in front of us than I've been in years.. I know, that's very unlike me, isn't it? Maybe it's those July 2 eggs I had for lunch
Jodiwatch (Thursday 7/12)I'm not saying this is something, but it could be
Update Yep, it was something - it happened: Jodi's gone already and never even made the feeds.. teams are outlined below in the Ratings section.. Willie is HOH.. more later after the feeds start
If you've been reading along here for the past few days, you know there were a few leaked quads caps from inside the habitat the other night, thanks to the Big Brother Buddy phone app (which is NOT required to watch feeds on SuperPass), which confirmed the identities of the four returning mentors and gave some hints as to teams, HOH and Have-nots.. most of the newbies were spotted here or there, except Jodi.. that's no big deal as the caps only come along every 15 minutes and she could have easily been anywhere else
However, today CBS released some press pics and among them was this one of Julie in her boudoir© with the peculiar caption "Awaiting the first interview: Julie Chen about to interview the 1st Houseguest evicted from BIG BROTHER".. that's (very) possibly just another CBS goof and the webgeeks over there just confused tonight's premiere with a live eviction show, except that she's standing in front of her eviction interview bench - huh? She won't be needing that tonight!
Some of my loyal Hamsterwatchers began to dig and we confirmed that Jodi is indeed missing from the leaked quad caps, and possibly Danielle is too - it's hard to tell her apart from JoJo at this point when all you see is the back of someone's head
You ask what does it all mean? Maybe nothing, but maybe Jodi and/or Danielle have already been evicted.. remember this is Day 6 in the habitat for them, and they have done this before: Big Brother 9, the other season that started with the "biggest cast ever" of 16, had already evicted Jacob & Sharon before the premiere, which we didn't discover until the feeds began later that night.. CBS didn't let on to the TV audience for another show or two, and by then Neil had left and Sharon had returned to replace him, further clouding most of our memories of how that all went down
Some TV listings are showing "another houseguest will be evicted" for next Thursday's show, so who knows? Hopefully it's all just another crazy theory and both ladies are still there - Jodi in particular, as most of us were looking forward to her (not to mention the hit to BB's media rep and viewer demographics if they're left with an all-white cast so soon.. I really don't want to start any unfounded rumors, but rest assured I'm on #Jodiwatch from here on out
Also today, TMZ picked up the story about BB5 Drew's arrest, as reported here yesterday - see below
Big Brother 14 premieres tonight at 9pm (8pm Central) on CBS - the live feeds on SuperPass and Big Brother After Dark on SHO2 (Slice and/or Global Reality in Canada) begin at 10pm Pacific/1am Eastern
Countdown to Julie (Wednesday 7/11)I do love when they release the moving in pic at the FOTH, all smiles with their little BB bags - I miss the days of embroidered names on the bags rather than cheap hangtags though, but even a media giant like CBS has had to make budget cuts
It won't be long till we see them act oh so surprised by finding their keys invitations at home or work or local hangout (as if the camera crew wasn't a tip-off), and moments after that we'll hear Julie utter those two little words that will kick off the season for real: "Hello, houseguests".. soon after that, the happy faces will turn to arguing, whining, scheming, goofing, and fighting - bring on the feeds!
But first.. in case you've been on a backpacking trip in the Himalayas or just getting back from the International Space Station, Wednesday was the last day to save $10 on the live feeds, but it's not too late to get three month subscription for just $39.99 that includes the whole season, live interviews after it all wraps up, Flashback, mobile feeds at no extra cost, and $10 worth of free music every month.. I know you all get tired of all of us begging for signups but it's the only way many of us can afford to this, and some folks are only just arriving now for the new season
If you're one of those late arrivals, be sure to check the previous Hamsterwatch episodes of the last couple of days & weeks! If you haven't heard, the returnees have been confirmed: Dan, Janelle, Britney, Boogie are all in the habitat! There's been a lot going on this pre-season and I've been a busy dingo trying to keep Hamsterwatchers informed, plus there are a couple of guest posts from @BestBBEver and @MissCleoBB14 for your reading enjoyment
Another season, another mugshotThis time it's (formerly) squeaky-clean Big Brother 5 winner Drew Daniel, arrested July 2 in Urbana, OH for domestic violence.. he (allegedly) attacked and punched another man in the ribs hard enough to affect his breathing, and Drew was tased when he charged the deputy on the scene
See the news article for details.. you'd think male-on-male violence would be assault rather than domestic violence? Hmmm.. maybe it's a roommate situation, or maybe Drew's not who we (and Diane) thought he was all those summers ago
Meanwhile the Twitter war between @EvelDick and @RaganFox rages on.. I don't know what that's about or why, or if it's genuine or promotional in nature, but it's not pretty
Ratings - Hasty judgment special editionRatings are based on potential entertainment value. These are my pre-show impressions because they haven't really changed (yet), and because 15 of them is too many to get a good cap and write up every night.
