|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

They're calling Diary 'the wizard' and 'convention' is pre-show sequester.
Ashley revealed they wear earpieces for nominations, presumably in case prompting is needed for 'Hamster A, you are safe' and 'Thank you, Hamster B'.
CBS shows are 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.

Pineapple waffles (Monday 7/16)Yesterday everything was all nice and tidy with a 4-4 vote, tiebreaker TBW (to be waffled), and an eight-person pact to get along for two weeks that only lasted a few hours.. today the entire day was gametalk, with the exception of the Showtime block - maybe they're under orders to be bland from 9 to 12.. they gametalked in various hamster combinations, in various rooms, with healthy doses of lies, paranoia, and of course, lots & lots of waffles
Sorry but I'm not about to provide gavel-to-gavel coverage for those who couldn't face it: there's no way I'm keeping track of all that.. but the peculiar thing about all of it was the two nominees were barely mentioned and hardly involved.. Frank had a meeting or two, but Kara was hardly there all day again.. for some inexplicable reason, her coach Dan told her not to gametalk with anyone, and stunt mentor Willie told Frank to lay low
The only non-gametalk tidbits I've got are a bee approached Ian in the hammock and scared him, he dumped out, and hurt himself a little - don't worry, there wasn't enough blood to earn a spot on my Extracurricular Tally.. Have-nots were allowed to eat at midnight.. Frank made steak dinner for them and most of the Haves swooped in for some too.. stupidly, Have-nots have to stay in the room until Thursday
CBS touted their Sunday night ratings win but they were down 1 million viewers from the premiere - it looks like even CBS-onlies don't want has-beens.. many of the BB sites' traffic is also down, including mine: I had more of you peeking in here before the premiere than since, a first, and not a little discouraging since I've been staying up til 5am each night to get it slapped up here.. maybe those who said they wouldn't watch if we got more retreads carried out the threats this time
Key-hosI don't know what this cap's about but it's kind of kooky and dada so I thought I'd share.. think of it as "art"
They've already recorded their farewells to Frank or Kara, but the Diary calls kept coming and the lunacy got loonier.. by the end of the night, yesterday's pact is shattered, Britney hates her former bestie Janelle, and she told Willie about their theory that coaches will enter the game - said theory based largely on the fact that the coaches have key slots on the photo wall (not to mention the fact that this show gets un-twisted every season around Week 4 or 5)
Willie thought hard about it for awhile and then chased down Britney to say he wants a house meeting to get it all out there.. said meeting may or may not happen but if it does, it'll be a don't-miss event, sure to provide fireworks along with hilarity every time Willie says "key-hos"
In the midst of all this, Britney said to Willie "If I don't win it, do you know who I want to win it? You.. I want you to win the game".. it's almost 4am as I write this, the two of them are still parannoying their brains out, moving from one room to the next
At one point, there was a quick Diary leak where we heard Britney pleading for Xanax - if she got some (it would be from her own Rx), she didn't get enough.. throughout all of this long, long day and night, the fishies swam and swam and swam
Glass shardsMeanwhile in the other habitat, they revived Alex back into the Glass House for a minute in a desperate attempt to save their dying show - I think he was gone again by the end of the air show.. I don't know why they'd bring back this clown who claims he's "the Worst Villian (sic) in the history of reality tv" on his Twitter profile - I know, you've never heard of him but he thinks he's the shit
Their Powers That Be failed once again to learn from their mistakes by wasting their four-hour Monday night feed block with more orchestrated crap - this time it was a toga party, and more predictable Q&A about over-analyzed dead horse issues at a time when BB14 feedsters were chewing glass over all the circular gametalk.. loads of us would have hopped back to the glass hamsters for a few hours if they were letting them be hamsters, but no
But a few of our greater BB family regulars got their questions posted and onscreen, so that was nice.. I'd like to know what happened to the original tagline "you tell them what to wear, what to eat, and what to do"? That's an appealing premise for us voyeuristic types, but it's a world apart from offering up two silly options selected by former BB producers.. but no matter: in a couple weeks, the Olympics will slaughter both shows
Snow White and the Seven Slaves? (Sunday 7/15)This time it's Ashley: she turned up having a past today, as reported by New York Post.. apparently her ex and agent is Anthony Marini, former owner of The Vault S&M club in Manhattan, and he is suing her for $820,000 for ditching out on a film contract to be on Big Brother instead.. when I say film contract, considering his past, chances are good it's a bondage porn flick, but the Post doesn't go into detail.. it does say she completed eight scenes for a trailer before she bailed to move into our little hamster habitat
The mock Ian/Ashley date is still scheduled to happen sometime today, and between that and her Snow White shtick, new mental images of Ashley (and probably chops) are popping out all over.. my Extracurricular Tally below has been duly updated
Back to our program, Shane did not use the veto, launching enough meetings you'd think they're voting before dinner - I'm rethinking the gametalk drinking game, I don't want any of you to die of alcohol poisoning this early in the season
Apparently Boogie talked to himself and/or us this morning about wanting to stir things up, and later he tried to cause an uproar about Britney's messy causing the ants invasion.. I was catching a nap but apparently it didn't really catch on.. Boogie's clearly got his sights set on Britney though: he's also talking about starting up Brigade 2.0 with Shane, Frank, and Willie.. Jenn's pic is here because we rarely see her
The season is officially underwayBoogie hit on Kara about getting together after all this, and then the season kicked into high gear.. Janelle pitched a plan to Willie about working for a 4-4 vote rather than the agreed-upon 8-0 plan (7-0 per Willie), in order to make good tv for us.. she knows we don't like unanimous votes, but she also knows Willie breaking a tie would sabotage him with either Boogie or Dan, whichever one loses their teamie, when it was unnecessary for him to do so
Then she went to bubble bath with JoJo, encouraging her to showmance Shane if she wanted to, again on the premise that we like that and it'd be good for JoJo overall and fun, if she likes him.. earlier Janelle suggested the same to Danielle, who already seems a little interested in Shane.. all these setups are making it look like Janelle's social game has caught up to her comp skills in a big way, other than the fact that it might be too early in the week to put all her ducks in their rows
Willie got wind of how many whisperings were going on everywhere (and perhaps realized his power is now gone), and he started parannoying (© BB5 Diane) to Team Britney about it.. Janelle joined and was confronted about it, skated through it easily, and they all assured Willie that everything was fine.. eventually all members of Team Britney & Team Janelle filled up the HOH room, and made a pact that none of them would nominate any of the others until all the others were gone - we'll see how that plays out
Most of this went on while the show was on in the East - I think it was the best feeds hour during the CBS show we've ever had.. Ian & Ashley's date is scheduled for Showtime, because they like to have skits and activities for that.. I got a nice shoutout from Janelle around 7:35pm BB time when they were talking about BB sites.. Dan and Britney said they read me too - it made my day
Date nightIan & Ashley's date started right on schedule, approximately 9:15pm Pacific for your Flashback, with both of them dressed in their hamster best and several of the others handling all the arrangements.. they held it in the parlor/arcade with the door closed, Britney popping in & out for table service.. it was cute and the awkward gradually passed - then it turned to gametalk before they didn't kiss good night
They attempted drunken charades in the backyard, but the Feedmasters decided we weren't worthy of seeing that, so we watched the fishies play charades instead.. Britney took her turn in the bubble bath and Wil joined her, which disturbed a lot of the BB bubble bath fans.. Kara watched them - I don't think that's what they were hoping when they cast a Playmate of the Year
Ian talked to us for awhile as he tried to detangle the threads of the mess he's gotten himself into.. he gave a shoutout to Sucks and Digital Spy, and sounded like he's leaning towards all the wrong people for his own good.. JoJo told stories about her gold-digging past, and later crawled into bed with Willie to gametalk and strip down to her bra
Ashley came along after that and pulled Willie into the bathroom where they gametalked on the floor for awhile before taking it outside.. they talk like they're tight (don't they all?) but they are on to the fact that the coaches are playing for themselves.. to use the old BB chess analogy, it's like we've got four knights & bishops and eleven dispensable pawns*
Dan talked to us for awhile too, or tried to - he needs to work on his monologue skills.. oddly, both he and Ian wondered aloud why anyone would be watching them talk to themselves - odd because a) they both know we like that to find out what they're really thinking, and b) they both signed up for (up to) 71 days of being on camera 24/7
* To flesh out that chess analogy a bit more, @MissCleoBB14 and @idolknights may have solved the riddle of how the coaches twist will end (because BB twists ALWAYS end): apparently Julie never said the coaches would go out when their last teamie's evicted, as most of us have assumed.. so rather than just put an end to coaching at Week 5 or whenever, maybe a teamless coach stays to become a regular player when they lose their last member, like a chess king must do.. that would be unexpected, as they could have been sabotaging their own teamies all along to play for $500k again rather than the comparatively chintzy $100k coach's prize
