|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

Willie was ejected for head-butting Joe. Threats & verbal attacks are legal - aggressive physical contact is not.
They're calling pre-show sequester 'convention' or 'knitting convention', and they're calling Diary 'the wizard' or 'dairy queen'.
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 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 (rumors say $25k).
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.

A bigger, better show begins (Friday 7/27)Across the pond, London went all out for the 2012 Summer Olympics opening ceremonies, put together by Danny "Slumdog Millionaire" Boyle.. thanks to some kind folks over there, we were able to watch it live from BBC1 online, thus avoiding NBC commentary as well as commercials
It was a beautiful ceremony but of course, Brits do that stuff better than anyone.. they began with sylized modern British history tableaux and paid tribute to children's literature giants Peter Pan, Harry Potter and Mary Poppins.. the show was heavy on pop music, ranging from Mike Oldfield's "Tubular Bells" (which begat Virgin Records) to Sex Pistols "Pretty Vacant" to a full orchestra version of "Chariots of Fire" featuring Rowan Atkinson as Mr Bean, and culminating with Sir Paul McCartney who had a backing track looping problem, but that was the only glitch in the very long show that I noticed (and it was fixed for the US airing, so maybe just a BBC broadcast glitch)
The lighting of the cauldron wasn't as spectacular as it sometimes is, but it was definitely one of the most beautiful I've seen.. Muhammed Ali made his now traditional appearance, but the poor guy can't even stand on his own now.. instead of superstar athletes doing the final leg and lighting, the big sports names handed off to seven up-and-comers in a really nice touch, literally passing the torch to the next generation.. I posted a few screencaps on my personal Twitpic.. why NBC didn't run it live and repeat tonight, I'll never know - they seem to be stuck in 1974 like CBS.. I've posted a handy Olympics schedule in Links of the Day below, and will keep it there for the duration
Back to our program, againJanelle won the coach's comp and declared Wil safe.. Britney opened a box or something to choose the Have-nots: she picked Joe, and Ian volunteered (again).. their supplement is cereal & salmon.. clearly most voters confuse the question "what should Have-nots get" with "what would you like" (that's ass-uming these votes are valid - they likely aren't).. Frank's hometown buddies at @teamfrankBB reminded me that salmon also figured in the Froot Loops fight, so it's a fitting combo.. Boogie ended up with $6,000 after giving $3,000 to Ian and $1,000 to Jenn.. Britney won a sushi party, rumored to take place tomorrow, which is also Wil's birthday
Shane held meetings with all the coaches and players before noms, even Jenn, even though that's all any of them talk about all the time - you'd think a done deal is a done deal, but not this year.. signs of HOH-itis are beginning to appear in Shane
He nominated Ashley and Joe - so much for the agreed-upon plan to put up one each from Janelle's and Boogie's team.. Shane was ready to mutiny himself off of Team Britney before he won HOH - she might go back into lecture mode, which could be good for us as he's advertised having a temper.. Danielle could have a meltdown too, since she was all pumped over having (indirect) power this week
Noms fallout continued through the evening and into the late night.. if Shane went against all the plans intentionally, he's keeping it to himself.. Janelle's back to villifying both Joe & Frank and trashing Britney, Britney's back to trashing Janelle and discussing indelicate topics, Dan's back to his interrogation sessions, Ashley's back to babytalk whining and being spacey, Jenn's back to being mostly invisible, and Boogie's back to sleep.. Joe's already fed up with being a Have-not after just a few hours, even though he ate salmon dinner and hasn't even tried to sleep in there yet.. Ian's still not complained about it a bit
Danielle got over feeling rejected (from the vote last night and the failed noms plan today) and did what's becoming her daily planking onto Shane - his reaction was "I touched boob" and off she rolled.. later she laid next to him and tried to flirt (I think?) but he clearly wasn't into it again, twisting his neck to keep his face away from hers and sniping back at her with snotty brother type remarks.. the poor girl's desperation is palpable and she has no idea everyone wants to be in finals with her for a sure win, including him.. Britney encouraged her after he left, and CBS will play up this unrequitedmance into something it isn't, and she'll keep on making herself look foolish - so it goes in the hamster habitat
Another mug shot, already (Thursday 7/26)Shocking almost no one, Willie was arrested Wednesday night for OWI (operating while intoxicated = stationary but running vehicle), after previously announcing he'd be out at a bar: "Lafayette downtown at bootleggers tonight. Walk up with your dukes up and I'll headbutt you for free." According to CBS News, brother Russell used to own the bar - local news says he doesn't any longer
The jokes started rolling in, like they do, everything from "Free Willie" to my favorite, "Well, he at least has a shot now of getting in front of a jury" from Trixiego at Sucks.. we've had a lot of hamster arrests, but I think he's the first one to pose for a mug shot while his season was underway - see Links of the Day below for more
Meanwhile the hamsters still in custody in Studio City had their HOH lockdown while the crew did live show prep and/or rehearsal, and they were forced to listen to fishies music like we are, which is fitting punishment for having gotten as dull as they have
Back to our programJoJo was evicted 5-1, with Shane being the 1.. he then went on to win the hockey comp and we have another HOH who had been everyone's target just a few hours earlier
Danielle was a bit crushed, suspecting and/or knowing that her crush was the sole vote against her, but she rebounded when she finally spread the story around that JoJo had called her fat, and she rebounded even more when Shane told her he'd turned down JoJo's offer to make out with him.. don't tell the shmucks who write the promos for this show since they insist on calling this a showmance, but our unrequitedmance could be back on - here's hoping, since there's not much else of interest to watch in there
They all went up see Shane's goodies and listen to his letter from mom and Britney's from hubby, and gawk at the pics - see today's Twitpics for a few that weren't there.. when Ian asked who a girl in one pic was, Shane said it's his sister Shannon, and to back off - what's up with that?
Gametalk revved up again, like it does, with the resulting consensus being Britney/Shane teaming up with Dan/Danielle and planning to nominate one each from Janelle's & Boogie's teams, including veto replacement if applicable: that way they would control the eviction through Danielle's swing vote.. Joe had a quick campaign chat with Shane - I don't know what was said but Dan was hiding out in the bathroom and heard it - he came out after they left saying "They don't know what's going to hit them" - does he know? It has seemed plausible since his team picks, and everything he's done since
Wil, Janelle, Britney, and assorted others hung around the hot tub reviving hemorrhoid chat for a bit over a small booze delivery - it was the topic before HOH room too.. all sorts of delicate subjects were discussed tonight including sex and birth control in great detail.. Dan & Danielle finally had a celebratory jumpy-dancey hug and high-five in the pantry, and he warned her against getting too cocky.. later she literally dove onto Shane for a minute, squealing how excited she was - they separated quickly
Ratings - Mid-season Review special editionVTE = Voted to evict
Ratings are Wednesday's but I'll stick with them, based on cumulative entertainment value thus far and potential for the rest of the season - we're only a few weeks in but it feels like months
