Big Brother 15
Daily Hamsterwatch
I don't care who wins, I'm just here for the cheap entertainment.. the cheaper, the better
This site is about the Big Brother 16 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. Thanks for encouraging my behavior.
Your pal, dingo

Another new hamster (Friday 8/15)

It's hard to tell if this is the same guy who showed up a couple weeks ago or not, but I'm thinking maybe not - today's staffer seems to understand hamster hygiene (or lack of), and wore gloves.. feedsters are hoping either or both will enter the game and swap out a couple from our cast

As decreed by the Skittles Reaping, Frankie nominated Caleb and Cody, and Derrick nominated Donny and Christine

Donny & Christine won the BOB comp, despite all the plans and Skittles.. it was a messy affair involving crawling in the dark to find bones and then fit them into a puzzle, plus chain link fences.. Team America (fuck yeah) got their task to steal clothing and form a neighborhood watch, and decided to wait until after veto to get it going.. they drew names for the veto comp tomorrow: all will play except Derrick, who will host (Zingbot's sidekick?), and Zach, who will sit out while the others decide his fate

Feedsters take a hit (Thursday 8/14)

Nicole and Donny sat over Jenga to study the zombie clues, some of which Donny slept through last night.. it's a foregone conclusion that Nicole will be evicted, but losing either of them will be a big hit to the feeds.. luckily we're due for a revival and both of them have proven comp ability, so it's not over yet

When Nicole did walk the plank, she had cheers behind her and cheers ahead, and true to form, her sit-down in Julie's boudoir was genuine, awkward, and sweet.. the rest of them did their Q&A about last night's zombie clues, and Derrick & Frankie won

Julie gave us a slew of announcements including Revive-a-Hamster (singular) next Thursday with either Jocasta, Hayden, Nicole, or whoever gets the boot that night coming back, and Zingbot veto Saturday for Wednesday's show, and that this is the last dual HOH/BOB week - finally!


The Reaping, Skittles style

Frankie's letter was an album/VMA promo from Ariana, and Derrick's was from wife Jana with news of daughter Tenley and their doggies

A noms meeting for the books began around 12.07am with everyone but Victoria and Donny.. after almost an hour of discussion and a few slightly raised tempers, they drew Skittles to make the decision - I kid you not.. Frankie will put up Caleb and Cody, and Derrick will put up Donny and Christine - or maybe the other way around, I'm not sure.. Christine has strict orders to throw the BOB so they can evict Donny

Ratings - Captain Obvious edition

Ratings are based on entertainment value
VTE = Voted to evict

They're going to keep shoving Grandes down our throats, and there doesn't seem to be anything we can do about it.

Won: $5,000, shaved head, 48 hr Adam & Eve with Victoria, football trip

VTE Nicole
Against all odds, he's become one of the more amusing ones in there, mostly because he's a parody character. A parody of himself, that is.

Won: Football trip

No vote (HOH)
Along with Frankie, Cody, and Caleb, she's touchy-feely to a fault. A San Andreas sized fault.

Won: 24 hrs kicking self

VTE Nicole
He's sleeping almost as much as Zach these days, but at least he does memorable things in his sleep.

Won: $10,000

VTE Nicole
Yep, still the smartest guy in the room and the only one playing for jury votes. Skittles saved him from having to nominate anyone at this crucial point, and he's now the only one left who hasn't been nominated at all.. yet. He really should have to sweat a bit for that $500k at some point, but it might never happen.

Won: $10,000

No vote (nominee)
Donnyisms, roaming the house alone all day, and causing the most tears with his farewells, all these things are well and good, but they can't save the feeds on their own.

Won: $10,000, football trip

VTE Nicole
Still on ignore.

Won: 48 hr Adam & Eve with Caleb

VTE Nicole
She's become one of the more entertaining ones among them, which speaks volumes.

Won: Germany trip

VTE Nicole
Skittles saved him from almost certain nomination, and don't think the rest of them didn't notice his rapid change from Impending Zach Attach to gloaty giggles when his Skittle wasn't picked. Depending on veto, he's the likely renom, and Zingbot might rattle him enough to affect his comp performance.

Won: 1 wk frog, 1 wk Germitard
She was ingenuous without being cliche, refreshing and adorable, and she wore both costumes equally well. She was flattered & surprised to be a flirting target, and her game and/or guts were praised by Ian Terry, Dick Donato, Andy Herren, and Dan Gheesling, which is pretty high praise. Despite some very stiff competition, Nicole is easily the winner of Deathrace 2014, and she'll be missed.

Won: Nothing
He was the nice guy they all liked, and it's always rough to lose that guy early. Slightly immature with no shame, he was extremely good-natured and responsible for most of the just-for-fun activities and spontaneous silliness. He was cute with Nicole and a perfect combo of Jackass and hamster. He brought a lightness to the feeds that was missed when he left.

Won: Nothing
She didn't bring the holy wars I feared but she did speak in tongues. She cried a lot but she also laughed a lot, and she did great Diaries. She'll be remembered for her bow ties, her choir robe/portable changing room, and most of all her judgemental, IDGAF, side-eye, and the hell you say expressions.

Won: Nothing
A stunningly gorgeous model, she lasted longer than the hamster in that slot usually does, but she exited on another unanimous vote, and before jury. She wanted to play a clean game and that usually doesn't work out so well on this show. She was a good sport about pranks, including the antiquing shown here, but she'll mostly be remembered as the object of Caleb's dreams, and I do mean dreams.

Won: 2400 goals
She was the rawest recruit we've had in awhile and she didn't do much homework, which worked against her in a big way. She seemed to have pretty good game instincts and may have done some real damage if she'd been better prepared. She'll be remembered for her high bun as well as the few times her hair escaped it and landed her in Deathrace 2014 hall of fame, and for sticking with and completing that brutal soccer task when she didn't have to.

Won: Nothing
He has a daughter.

PS He easily wins the Best Evictee Award with this.

Won: Nothing
I kept hoping for the spitfire she plays on Twitter & Instagram to show up but it didn't until the veto meeting blowup. She was well on her way to being a perma-pawn but she stressed about not being able to win comps, and then Devin happened and out she went. She had a lot of entertainment potential and while we were robbed of most of it by her early exit, we'll always have CALTORU.

Won: Nothing
She blew up her game prematurely and spectacularly, and then her alter ego Alex and his 'big ass balls' sealed the deal. Supposedly she beat someone with 500k Twitter followers (plus 15 million backup) in a public vote, but that went splat just like BB12's saboteur Annie. Joey was lively and personable, a worthy member of the first out club, and she easily leads the pack of hamsters with unnatural hair colors.
