|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 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.

Baking with Block Buddies (Wednesday 8/1)That's what Frank christened it when he helped Joe prepare avocado cheesecake.. he also helped nudge Frank into talking to us about what he was doing, which was helpful since Joe is here to get a cooking show.. Have-not Joe continued to sneak illegal food as he went, sampling each step of the way - @Poohbare93 caught a lick.. he was finally given a warning by Diary, possibly thanks to all of us for being so vigilant - good work, Hamsterwatchers
They were on lockdown all day for tomorrow's apparatus building, which smells like endurance to me.. word to the wise: this would be a very good time to get the feeds if you haven't yet so you can watch it live, ass-uming they don't feed us fishies
Frank was happy to find something to read this morning: he came out of the bathroom saying he's now an expert on toxic shock syndrome.. later he entertained the troops by carrying various hamsters around the habitat, tossing Ted the bear off the HOH balcony, and putting Danielle in a headlock - between various gametalk and voting conferences, obviously
Kara & JoJo have been sequestered since their evictions, so we could have a Revive-a-Hamster event along with tomorrow's evictee, but all signs point to the coaches having the option to join the game tomorrow for a shot at $500k or to continue coaching their team for $100k if one of their players wins.. Dan & Janelle are already making deals assuming it's a go - Flashback 7/30 11.38pm.. Janelle told Britney she has "negotiated" to be able to see her daughter Violet in the jury house, should she join the game and go there - Flashback 7/30 5.31pm, and see Reality Blurred's article in Links of the Day below.. both had said previously that their original coach contracts clearly said they would not be sent to the jury house to rot if they lost all their players
They got some Play-doh from the staffers who are still shopping the kiddie aisle.. Britney explained the quack scandal: Ashley was attempting to eavesdrop and asked whoever was there to shush, but Ian quacked, leading to speculation about a duck alliance.. they were informed that there'd be no nominee speeches tomorrow, leading them to run wild with the coach untwist - it's no secret to anyone anymore
As Danielle's world turnsDanielle walked out of HOH in a huff after Janelle told Ashley she'll be good at endurance since she's small.. Wil went after her and she said she's just tired of "some people" not giving her any credit (she's been complaining about Janelle overlooking and/or insulting her for the past few days) - you'd think she'd remember her kindergarten teacher lie and realize they have to settle those types of hissyfits all day, not create them.. Shane stayed upstairs and said not to worry about her.. Dan replaced Wil and she told the story again - he replied that she should stay when trashtalking comes around and listen, face it, rather than running as that shows weakness.. thanks to Rissmeek in Hamsterwatch Chat for this section's title - I'll be using it again
The old Britney showed up for a second with a direct hit after Danielle ran a list of some of her medical problems, including acute renal failure: "So does that mean you're going to die young, or do you just have very expensive medical insurance?".. later Britney ran an interrogation about Danielle's real job, not believing she's a kindergarten teacher.. Danielle stuck with her stupid lie, but her grin gave away to Britney that she was on the right track.. Shane joined, then Frank.. Britney went into a drug rap about the meds she sells, and suddenly Danielle stopped covering up her medical knowledge - Flashback 8/1 10.24pm
Meanwhile Joe made a pitch to Jenn, and told her that he had "vital info" (presumably reports that Boogie said he'd trade her for Wil if given the chance).. Wil was listening and didn't like what he heard.. the pantry became a conference room for Janelle & Dan, followed by Janelle & Joe, enter Wil who had a small spat with Joe, and then went on to report to Frank & Jenn and assorted others - Flashback 8/1 11.10pm-ish, go quads and stick with them - the habitat imploded, at last
This is why I don't count votes early, especially this season - I'll just wait for Julie.. on top all of that, Janelle had a nip slip - see my adults page if you're not a kid, not at work, and not a prude.. sorry Janelle, but you did try to trick me about going in there this season
Joe bites (Tuesday 7/31)The Have-not chef helped Danielle make dinner and couldn't resist sampling a bit real quick-like - maybe it was force of habit, but he didn't cop to it to anyone.. maybe something will come of it or maybe it won't: in the past we've ranged from no repercussions to an extra day on slop to a penalty vote.. Flashback 7/31 6.53pm F3/4 - on one of those feeds, the camera operator missed the actual bite but definitely knew it happened: he or she jumped to follow Joe as soon as it happened
Shane wrote his tweets and blog and the camera came out for silly poses.. both Janelle and Dan continued planting seeds here and there in their very fertile gardens.. Frank continued campaigning all over town - not necessarily openly campaigning, but getting around a lot more and talking to a lot more of them than he did last week
They had a scanty booze delivery but we were mostly fed the gametalk and whisper feeds rather than the sippy crowd.. Janelle and Wil made it up, complete with near-tears from Janelle - she'd announced the talk was going to happen first, and tucked a tissue in her pocket to pull out at the appropriate time
The four coaches continue talking about coming into the game, but most of the newbies don't seem to be hearing it.. all four keep alternating between buddying up with and subtly trashing each other to the newbies too, and they do hear some of that.. although the interest quota was low, it was a busy day and night, and Ian was the only who kept a low profile - even Jenn was spotted in a gametalk convo.. for the record, Ian still hasn't complained about being a Have-not after three weeks of it
Update: Ashley started a tirade later to anyone & everyone who would listen about "Ian was quacking," so he didn't escape scot-free today, after all
Suicide watch (Monday 7/30)Shane went along with last night's manipulation plan and used the veto to save Ashley and put up Frank in her place.. apparently it took Boogie by surprise, but Shane had hinted to Frank that something of the sort could happen.. Shane, Britney, Ashley, Wil, Janelle all held various celebrations, and Frank, Boogie, Jenn held various conferences.. somehow Ian's becoming everyone's scapegoat, apparently due to something from Week 1? I don't know
Please note this is NOT a BB backdoor since Frank wasn't the original target, plus he played for veto - a technicality maybe, but these terms are used incorrectly too often and tossed around too freely these days
Suicide watch might be a bit extreme, but I have no doubt Danielle will crack a few times before this week is over, and Shane might as well, both from her clingy smothering as well as realizing that he's now utterly destroyed his own game.. Frank told Jenn he's pretty sure it was done to ensure Joe leaving, but that he'll work Danielle hard to make it so
It sounds like Joe gave quite a save-me speech at their meeting.. afterwards he went back to cooking for them, SHOUTING STORIES, and ANNOUNCING IT'S HIS & WIFE SARAH'S NINE YEAR ANNIVERSARY - he wants a media blitz
On Janelle's suggestion, Britney told Shane that he should keep up the fakemance for awhile for their side's sake, at least til the vote.. Shane replied that he's not interested in Danielle, that doesn't want to hurt her, and that she's way too attached to him - Flashback 7/30 5.15pm.. too bad for CBS, who already has them picking out silver patterns
Britney went on a long tirade about her hubby giving her gripper socks once - apparently she didn't like them.. Jenn & Janelle made family dinner - you'd think Joe being on the block would be even more incentive for him to chef them, but I guess not.. volleyball broke out for Showtime after a meager booze delivery, using towels on the ground as a net.. nobody fell into the pool, but they all got crazy for a bit after that, complete with Dan & Janelle playing chase 'n wrestle after chess, Frank helicoptering Danielle and Britney, group modern dance, and whirlpools in the pool
All the coaches have mentioned being tipped off by Diary about coming into the game - as if they didn't know already, since every twist ends at Week 4, but they've made it as official as anything can be until Julie says so.. Janelle said they might let her have Violet in the jury house, since she can't spill any secrets - Flashback 7/30 5.31pm and/or 11.38am
Meanwhile there's unrest in the ranks: Wil had a fit when Janelle told him she'd saved him from certain nomination for two weeks, and Danielle crawled back into Shane's bed and exploded to him about Dan being "a super dick" among other things.. she then went on to spill to him that Ashley's Sunday night tears were fake and a mission from Janelle.. the question is do either of them have the combined brainpower to realize that was the start of the manipulation of Shane that ended with him putting up Frank? Time will tell.. Flashback 7/31 1.57am
