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

Reduce, reuse, recycle (Wednesday 8/20)

The day started in the afternoon as usual, with Donny and Christine having a lengthy discussion about everyone else as they slept.. Donny provided truths again, like he does, with Heisenberg hat at the ready (thanks @bigbrothernet for that one!).. Christine did a lot of nodding and mm-hmming

Later she took it all to Cody and Derrick of course, and a meeting formed in HOH with the three of them plus Frankie and Caleb to go over various reasons and methods to assassinate Donny.. Donny walked in during that, saying "what in the world is going on?" They changed the subject fast, and scattered

Otherwise Zach's last day (for now?) was a mostly quiet one.. Caleb did some more creep mode cowboy sleuthing which was good for a few laughs.. night-time brought some revelations when Zach discovered Spencer's nametag under his own on his mic pack and the rest of them started peeling their nametags off too to discover they were reusing mic packs from BB15 that were reused then from BB14 - they were a bit starstruck, which was cute

After that it was an impromptu karate show by the guys, which led to Caleb getting back into his Angry Onesie and weirding out around the habitat again

Hatgate 2014, continued (Tuesday 8/19)

Victoria dug out the notorious pink hat from among her things, and we saw that she had indeed shredded it behind the fishies last night - which she can since it's her own hat.. she wrapped it in tinfoil, because it's not Big Brother without a tinfoil hat at some point, then she stuffed it into a ziplock bag and stuffed the whole package back among her things


Something from nothing

The camera came out and Frankie enjoyed taking pics of what he termed "doing inappropriate things" with the guys while they slept, and they got magnetic darts, with instructions that the dartboard had to remain where it was and they'd get the darts for 24 hours once a week.. the set is available from the CBS Store, as Donny correctly guessed (get 20% off orders over $29 using this link).. otherwise the day and evening seemed like a total loss, with a lot of extra helpings of Frankie seeking attention, but a couple spats broke out that livened things up a bit

Caleb made a remark about Cody cuddling with this girl and that girl and moving on to other girls, and things got a bit heated between them - Flashback 8/19 10.05pm.. Christine jumped in to change the subject but not before Caleb called Cody a slut and Cody responded by saying Caleb's jealous.. Christine said something about it later to Cody, and how Caleb's bugging her lately, along with Donny.. earlier Caleb had said something to Derrick & Frankie about Cody & Christine always petting each other.. the cracks are finally starting to show among the guys, like we all knew they would eventually


Later, Zach and Frankie had another round over pool about Zach going or staying, which also got a bit heated, but there wasn't really anything new in it, except Frankie saying he can only get second place and that he can only buy two schools with $50,000 - Flashback 8/20 12.15am


There were more hollerings from afar which brought more fishies, like they do.. for some reason The Powers That Be marked last night's hollers as a feeds highlight - rhyme or reason escapes me with this show at times

End of the line (Monday 8/18)

Frankie used his veto on Caleb and put up Zach in his place, as planned.. Zach was predictably bummed out and took to his bed for a bit, but a bit later he asked Caleb about it, and then Frankie - Flashback 8/18 12.35pm.. I say end of the line, but Zach's got a good shot at coming back in the revolving door Thursday, which would really liven things up

TAFY patrols carried on, bringing far more comedy than security between the flashlight miner hats and letting individual hamsters roam off on their own, particularly Prime Suspects #1 and #2 Zach and Victoria.. meanwhile Frankie hid a pair of Christine's shoes - apparently they were told her stuffed tiger didn't quality as "clothing".. Derrick called an end to the neighborhood watch around 7pm, and nobody questioned why


Hatgate 2014

They had their third family dinner in a row, sans Zach who was asleep.. Derrick went to bed not much later, before Donny even, and the kiddies ran amok.. some more hollers came wafting in over the fence, consensus was "Beast Mode, we hate you! Zach we love you! Frankie you're disgusting!" but the hollerer posted on Jokers that he hollered "Attention Frankie, America hates you! Zach we love you! Frankie you're disgusting!"- Flashback 8/18 10.19pm.. Caleb, Zach & Frankie heard it

Cody, Christine, and Frankie had been on & off trashing Zach to Victoria for awhile, and that revved up into a new Hatgate.. Victoria threatened to cut up her pink hat that Zach's been wearing all season, or maybe she did cut it.. that led to a lot of slow burns and awkward silences, and eventually a couple confrontations between the two of them.. Zach asked if he could just have it back "for Thursday" and Victoria said she didn't know, would he be nice to her til then? He didn't promise that, but said didn't they sit up til 5am together the other night? And on it goes

BBQ Smackdown Round 3: Toxic Fuminator

I posted this cap last night when Frankie was grilling tuna again, with the caption "the grill is just itching to burn someone tonight".. little did I know it would be a delayed event

This is the first Smackdown match scored by retell, but what a retell it was - Flashback 8/18 4.36pm.. in the midst of dog chat, the guys broke out in a terrifying description of how close they all came to succumbing to death by melting plastic decor fumes.. the metal monster pulled out all the stops this time: it didn't attack directly, but rather it used Frankie to wreak havoc and cause massive destruction to the habitat itself, and then it sat back to let Frankie take the blame

Donny: That grill melted the wall out there
Cody: Oh yeah, we gotta keep that thing off the wall, man
Donny: The bush is just melted to the wall
Derrick: Well who - usually I always pull it away, who just cooked on it?
Caleb: Frankie
Derrick: It was Frankie then
Caleb: When Frankie cooked on it, it wasn't by the wall but he probably pushed it back while it was still hot
Derrick: I think it should be kept off the wall permanently

Final score: BBQ 1, Frankie 0

Won: Football trip

Which one is she again? I know I've seen her around but I just can't place her. Wait, what?! She's in my alliance?! NO FUCKING WAY! I've never heard of her.

Won: 24 hrs kicking self

I love him so much with his tight little ass and his pretty face, he's a GREEK GOD! I want him to be my boyfriend, can someone make that happen? We can do bad accents all night long and I can make sexual comments while he looks pretty. It's a dream come true <3 <3 <3

Won: $10,000

He's everywhere! But he's not my type so he should like get out of my sight and out of my HOH room. Why is he always talking about the game? I DON'T CARE ABOUT THE GAME I just care about me and my sister and me. He doesn't even let me hump him very often.

Won: $10,000

I've never seen this guy in my life. Why is he here? He's not even on my show! PRODUCTION DO SOMETHING!!!

He confuses me. Is he in my alliance? No? Okay. Don't tell him I nominated him, okay? OH MY GOD maybe I still have a chance.

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.

Frankie about Diary: They made me redo one line seven times last week, like seven times! In different outfits

Frankie: She's still my sister, I still get to cuddle in bed with her and everything

Frankie about mic pack nametag: The crazy thing is it says McCrae - it doesn't say his first name though

Zach: Hey, I got zinged by Kathy Griffin
Frankie: No, she zzzzzzinged you!

Derrick to Frankie, about Donny: But why would he go after two guys [them] who allegedly have your back?

Frankie's blog: tragic flaw in this game... I don't like being disliked

CBS narrator: Christine did her best to bone Donny's game

Kathy Griffin: I've been watching the live feeds and I got here as soon as I heard there's something wrong with Zingbot
(oops, Zingbot wasn't on feeds)

Donny about girlfriend Kristine: Well, maybe marriage... I don't have a ring but I have an activity tracker

Victoria, grilling: Ow
Derrick: You can't touch it, this is metal

Donny about darts: It's just merchandising, like everything else we've gotten

Donny: Once I'm gone, who is the biggest target?
Zach: Frankie
Donny: His sister made him the target

Frankie: This is harder than living in a tent in Malawi for three weeks, like for sure

Donny: I was brushing my teeth, looking at my white beard - look how pathetic that looks, there's possums that look better than me

Caleb: You're a slut
Cody: You are doing what jealous people do, and I'm okay with that because I've heard it a lot
Caleb: Me be jealous of you? You're nothing to be jealous of

Frankie: I don't have jury votes at the moment
Cody: I haven't even thought of any of that

Zach: And I'm not an idiot, so fuck you
Frankie: I didn't call you an idiot, I called you a prolific liar

Frankie: A hypocrite is a person who gets pissed at you for being a hypocrite

Donny: I wish there was a way to turn them against each other
Zach: Hey think of a way, and if it involves me, I can help you out on my way out the door

Donny: We're not playing for what people at home think, we're playing for what each other thinks

Donny: This is the least amount I've been outside in my life, I hope Zingbot is watching

Donny: We're not active people, we're like retired people

Frankie to Zach: Did you like my speech?

Victoria: No hard feelings
Zach: Oh there is hard feelings

Zach: Give me my pink hat! I'm nothing without my pink hat!

Derrick on his BB site after his Jokahs/Hamstahwatch shoutout season: It's not just gonna be words 'cause words would suck
