|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

The BB14 untwist resulted in no eviction, and all coaches entering the game. Boogie was the only one who didn't vote to enter. If all had said no, there would have been a hamster revival.
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, at least early on.
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. Kara and Jenn may have gotten more.
The coach of the winner would have gotten $100k without the untwist. Returning veterans got $20k to show up, and/or a higher stipend after the untwist.
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 ran for 10 episodes. The winner got $250,000 - half the usual BB winning amount. The glass hamsters went into hotel sequester on weekends.
Big Brother Canada premieres February 2013.

Justice, BB style (Saturday 9/15)As they've done the last few seasons, the jury deliberated early, without knowing who will go up against whom, and without one of its members: whoever goes out in third place on Wednesday will have missed all the juicy discussion that fills in their blanks, and will have a question handed to him or her to read to the finalists, whether or not it's the kind of thing he or she wants to ask.. that 7th jury member will then cast a vote along with the others a few minutes later, based on a severe lack of perspective that the other six enjoyed
Aren't we glad the courts system doesn't operate this way? I really think BB should use a different word for it - this is not how juries work.. but this isn't real life, it's just a TV show, it's "just a game" - but I figure half a million dollars is serious business any way you look at.. I also miss the days when all seven of them deliberated and questioned the two finalists.. while only two hamsters ratting around made for dull final days on feeds, their angry fallout after jury Q&A was always one of the highlights of the season
Back in the habitat, the ants upped their game and caused Dan & Danielle to go on a full-out kitchen cleaning frenzy, and corpses were strewn everywhere.. a lot of the ongoing BB ant problem is due to sloppy hamsters, but the gallons of corn syrup they pour into the backyard for comps might be a contributing factor too.. personally, I'm always rooting for Team Ants
Meanwhile, they were surprised by a Diary call or two - maybe the editors had to fill in some gaps based on topics the jury discussed that they'd previously overlooked.. they got a delivery of In-n-Out burgers, and some new games
AftermathThey did the Part 2 comp between dusk and Showtime, and Ian won.. as Dan & Danielle planned last night and as mentioned here below (way down there now), Danielle did a big fake anger scene which greatly upset Ian, and Dan did big private celebratory scenes with him.. we've waited all season for fireworks but alas, fake fights don't count for my tally.. what Dan probably realizes and Danielle probably doesn't is that the jury has already deliberated, and she'll have no time to "taint" them if she's evicted Wednesday night - Dan should but may not realize that Ian probably knows that too.. the comp sounds like a complex climbing arrangement, putting who-what-when in order, with clouds of sooty dust - Ian said it was a cool challenge
Danielle came out of Diary and went right to bed, seriously crying for a long time and perhaps dosed.. maybe she figured out in there with or without their help that the fake fight plan was not in her best interests after all and/or that she is now seriously facing a good chance at the dreaded third place finish - she literally cried herself to sleep.. Dan turned in after a few rounds of joy with Ian, but Ian waited up.. he finally got back to his hammock around 1.35am, and as the hammock revved up a new repertoire, he started to spill all the mutterings he's had to keep bottled up for days.. he seems fairly confident of winning $50k now.. The Powers That Be threw us a very nice bone by adding a dedicated rear-view hammock cam, complete with Ian's view of the yard - he saw most of the season from that vantage point
What it takesI get some flak for being whiny or bitchy during BB season but considering what goes into it, I think I do pretty well.. I've never done this before, but I thought I'd let you know what goes into being Hamsterwatch.com.. "but first", a bit of background
I try to keep Big Brother light and fun, but when I lapse into whiny or bitchy, maybe all this will help provide some insight as to why.. I am always floored by the numbers that visit the site and follow me on Twitter, and while ranking #26,342 in the USA or #187,862 in the world doesn't sound like it's much to crow about for most things, it's pretty awesome for websites.. figures are per Alexa.com, and it looks like I owe a special shoutout to Watertown
I don't clamor for interviews or suck up to the hamsters when they get out, and I don't attend their events since I have to get back to work ASAP to start trying to make up some of the income I lose by doing this.. I do it because I can feel like a writer a few months a year, I think I combine the various aspects well, and I do it for you guys: I'm ever grateful to Hamsterwatchers and regular readers for visiting and reading, especially those who have let me know they got a chuckle or perhaps a different perspective on something here or there.. you guys rock, and I'd never have lasted this long without you!
Zombies (Friday 9/14)Between naps, they had some power cuts and a camera went wonky, prompting Ian to start asking if there was an apocalypse going on that they didn't know about (and they went to fishies a couple times for that - apparently an apocalypse is also a production secret).. he didn't ask about zombies but that's what it turned out to be: they were seen in the area and it's just a matter of time til they break into their insulated habitat, and mine, and yours
This happened once at the UK Big Brother house and it was a mess.. even Davina McCall, their former version of Julie, succumbed.. apologies to the squeamish for her pic but I figure most of the squeamish have long since moved on
Actually this is not true and I hate that I have to say that, but that's what it's come to.. however, UK television did make a fictional miniseries using the superb premise of a zombie apocalypse revolving around Big Brother - see Links of the Day below to watch it
Back to our own three zombies, they got out of bed long enough to have prompted & guided conversation about the season over champagne breakfast for Sunday's show, and they got cards - admit it, zombies are a better story
Nighttime brought many rounds of Dan Q&A, Dan throwing things off the balcony, Dan boxing up his competition, and Ian getting TPd.. I expect they'll play Part 2 tomorrow, and then the negotiations and whispery assassination plans will really get fierce.. Dan & Danielle are planning a fake Dan/Ian celebration and Danielle angry scene if Ian wins Part 2
