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

Codysaurus (Saturday 8/30)

Christine won the veto, pretty much ensuring Nicole will walk the plank again on Thursday, barring some unlikely miracle.. yes, the guys are still expecting Victoria will go up and out, but I suspect Derrick will likely revise that before Monday's veto meeting

Their veto comp was about colors, and they returned from it very messy again.. Cody will be in a dinosaur costume.. they all agreed it was a fun comp and they were grateful it wasn't physical, since some are still hurting from Thursday's skating.. everyone played but Frankie

Evening brought yet another booze delivery (!) - Codysaurus and Victoria each got extra sippy, but otherwise it still wasn't much.. I really think the booze is finally flowing because so many have switched over to Utopia feeds - it's like there was a huge casting error somehow and they got the drama kings/queens and trainwrecks we love and expect on Big Brother, while BB got the kumbaya get-alongs required to build a community

Slop roast (Friday 8/29)

They got their last Have-not supplement, which turned out to be "meat products" including liver, mushrooms, and garlic.. Derrick volunteered, as he said he would last night after taking the $5,000, and then we had yet another Most Ridiculous Moment of BB16 when Caleb asked for another volunteer.. they all stood around in very awkward silence for what seemed forever, and Frankie didn't bother to step up even though Caleb said "everyone's done it twice, right?" - Frankie's only done it once

Nobody else stepped up either, so Caleb assigned Nicole to a second week running (something Caleb never stopped complaining about, and he didn't even have to sleep on the slabs for his two weeks).. Nicole had a minor meltdown after that, alone and to Derrick, and Frankie had a hissy fit elsewhere about how kooshy she had it in the jury house and that his condition prevents him and etc etc.. that's the last thing I'll report here about Frankie other than game facts, as he's on full, complete, and utter ignore for me from here on out.. Caleb nominated Nicole and Christine as planned.. they got booze and Play-Doh, but the feeds remained dull

Meanwhile, Utopia feeds have started, on move-in day, with both free and pay versions - info is at the Utopia site.. their first day had two (outdoor) house meetings, skinny-dipping, much booze, a near fistfight, and the drunkest one of them, Josh, shown here falling over, possibly kicked out for drunken sexual harassment.. also, a female got the boot before the feeds launched for violating sequester rules

Most of them went to bed early, and a few of the go-getters griped about the partiers.. later two of them got even sippier, and Hex "The Huntress" hurled into the swimming/fishing pond after kneeing Rob, hard, then she passed out in a field - see Links of the Day below.. that should be fun in the morning

The concept is interesting: build a functional community from scratch.. they all bring different skill sets, but unfortunately the dreaded reality casting formula (including stints on other reality shows for some) might win over the concept itself - we'll see.. also, one of them's pregnant.. Utopia premieres on FOX September 7 and is slated to run for a year


Last minute scramble (Thursday 8/28)

It was a foregone conclusion that Donny would go tonight, but Caleb & Frankie led a last minute charge to evict Nicole instead.. Cody told them he still wants Donny gone, and Derrick was left having to do the job none of the others bother with: thinking ahead

Of course all that was pointless, and Donny walked the plank 5-0 as expected.. he got a huge audience reaction but was teary with Julie, and looked positively stunned when she told him he'd already landed a guest spot on The Bold & The Beautiful.. we also had home visits with Christine's & Cody's families, with heavy emphasis on their petting.. all of them saw quick video clips from home - a first for the live show I believe, but they've never had an Ariana to exploit before.. Julie announced next week is another double eviction


Skating with the stars

The HOH comp was the skating in oil they've done for several years, this time with a winter theme and the jugs they had to fill were snowman heads.. they were given a smaller jug option to win $5,000 and obnoxious hollas for the rest of the season, the latter voted on live (by non-feedsters presumably)

Derrick shifted to the smaller jug partway through, which he completed successfully.. Victoria made an impressive showing considering the kind of week she's had.. Caleb, Frankie, Nicole, Christine all did pretty well - all six of them took some hard falls.. Caleb won in just under 2.5 hours

Caleb didn't get his room until 1.30am, and he was pleased with his haul which included military memorabilia and a letter from brother Blake.. they all hobbled up the stairs slower than usual, especially Caleb whose knee was jacked up pretty bad in the comp.. Nicole and Christine or Victoria will be the likely noms tomorrow, but there has been some anti-Frankie sentiment stirring among the boys' club

Ratings - BB16 Park special edition

With a grateful nod to TD/Mooman for many years of BB Park on this site. South Park characters created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone.
VTE = Voted to evict

Mr Garrison (original version) tried to instruct his students while overcoming chaos and assorted dramas, and alternately creating same. His alter ego Mr Hat might be seen as Jeff this season, reading fed lines that masquerade as humor but are often malicious.

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

VTE Donny
Eric Cartman, always sure he knows the score (but often wrong) and usually working overtime to be the center of attention, often wearing wacky costumes to make it so.

Won: Football trip

VTE Donny
Bebe Stevens, usually an extra in the background, and occasional best friend of Wendy/Nicole.

Won: 24 hrs kicking self, 1 week dinosaur

No vote (HOH)
Kyle Broflovski, one of the main characters of the show, is nonetheless an outsider much of the time. He's reactionary and often upset, but he's usually not the one to either cause problems nor solve them.

Won: $20,000

VTE Donny
Stan Marsh, another of the main characters, usually at the center of things and often the voice of reason and conscience ('You know, I learned something today.') Stan and Kyle are best friends, but Stan's usually a bit more mature and a lot brighter.

Won: $15,000

Kenny McCormick, usually speaking truths that few can understand, often killed and revived, and beloved by most. 'Oh my god, they killed Donny! You bastards!' will soon be the battle cry of viewers.

Won: $15,000, football trip

VTE Donny
I had him as Butters, then Tweek, then remembered the whole reason I wanted to do South Park ratings was for him to be Sexual Harassment Panda.

Won: 1 week frog, 1 week Germitard, revival

No vote (nominee)
Wendy Testaburger, the most prominent female and as such, is often overlooked by the boys, but she occasionally demands their attention.

Won: 48 hr Adam & Eve with Caleb

VTE Donny
Timmy Burch, mentally & physically handicapped and thus usually out of his (her) league, but every once in awhile rises to the occasion and saves the day.

Won: Germany trip
A kooky combo of erratic, volatile, and endearing, he was unique in every way. He slept much of the time but when he was awake he was as unpredictable as they get, a rare and valuable hamster quality. He'll be remembered for his Victoria's ever-present pink hat, cuddling with Frankie, for being the TAFY 'escape goat', and most of all for playing a pretty crappy game yet ending up a huge fan favorite anyway.

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.
