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

Hospice and shakes (Wednesday 9/3)

Have-nots came to an end for the season, officially and early.. our seven remainders were treated to burgers for lunch from In 'n Out, and they held a milkshake toast to themselves to celebrate

The Have-not room was closed up and I think the honeycomb was too.. the hamsters were locked in HOH for three hours (conveniently straddling the East coast airing of the show), but nothing else had changed when they were let out, even though feeds had run Jeffish, which usually indicates something's up.. it seems a bit late for 24-hour solitary with only five left after tomorrow, but maybe they have a surprise up their sleeves for them and us (ha).. I don't know if they had a booze delivery or pulled out some hidden stash, but Nicole got hilariously sippy for her last night

While the CBS show was busy jumping the shark, over on the Utopia feeds they had a busy day including tractor repair, do-it-yourself caber tossing, more skinny dipping, fixing a cart to take the chickens for a ride (they were advised against walking them on leashes), more meetings and more fights - mostly over radishes and ramen today, and night-time nibbling by a four-point deer, complete with gorgeous closeups.. I don't have high hopes for their air show edits (though I'd love to be pleasantly surprised) but as feeds go, Utopia is a gold mine of epic proportions

More less (Tuesday 9/2)

The camera came out once again, and they duckfaced once again and admired their duckfaces.. Caleb wrote his tweets and blog, much of which sounds like it'll be a dating ad for Christian Mingle - cap by @UgotBronx, who's still keeping up in the Updates section.. I don't think they bothered to solicit viewer questions this time, just like they didn't bother with a new feedster poll

For those waiting for some action and thinking back to last year's late season balloon hunt, note that it was on Day 71 and we've passed that.. I'd say there might not be much else but they've got three full weeks to go - it's mind-boggling

Meanwhile Utopia keeps rolling along and it's still compelling content for feedsters looking for something.. I'd post recaps here but this site doesn't generate income other than feed sales and Utopia doesn't have an affiliate program for those.. I can't keep working for dust, but I am having fun with it and tweeting some Utopia snarky on @neonne

Labor Day (Monday 9/1)

Sunday night had some intense waffling about putting up Frankie in Christine's place and #BackdoorFrankie trended on Twitter USA for hours, but as usual with this group, it came to nothing and Caleb replaced Christine with Victoria.. as such, I don't expect to have much until Thursday's double eviction

Until then, see Links of the Day below for Utopia feeds, which are refreshingly interesting, and very (unintentionally) funny

Ratings - I Got Nothing edition

Ratings are based on entertainment value and brutal honesty

Until last year, most seasons since the early ones were 70-75 days, which is still too long but at least it was do-able. 90+ days is simply too damn long especially when only one of them is actually playing the game of Big Brother and the entertainment value for the others is well past its sell-by date. BB was one of the few games in town with feeds but now there's Utopia, and they actually have things to do there.

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

We get it. He's the best at everything. He's done more and seen more than anyone else ever. He's incapable of talking about something other than himself for longer than one minute. Beast mode bore.

Won: Football trip

She's one of the most hated by some, but I haven't listened to her a lot all season so she remains stuck in neutral for me.

Won: 24 hrs kicking self, 1 week dinosaur

Even when he's drunk and in a dinosaur suit, he's dull.

Won: $20,000

He's been driving this game like no other, and consistently from the very start. His game skills are beyond impressive but unfortunately, that doesn't translate to entertaining feeds.

Won: $15,000, football trip

He remains on ignore for me.
The Wire has highlighted a few of the reasons why he's one of the most despised hamsters of all time.

Won: 1 week frog, 1 week Germitard, revival

I'd love it if she were able to stick around and win this sucker, but that's probably not in the cards. The fact that she's once again nominated while being a boozeless Have-not is everyone's loss, and one more reason why the whole Have-not thing has got to go.

Won: 48 hr Adam & Eve with Caleb

I want to say at least she tries to be entertaining but that's not really true.. it happens in spite of herself. The latest problem is a sore thumb which she had bandaged up like a compound fracture.

Won: $15,000

One of the most likable hamsters ever, complete with ongoing Lines of the Day contributions, a rare combo. He had a nasty side but didn't often let it show, so he got an angelic edit once they stopped painting him as a backwoods buffoon. He went to bed early and missed nearly all of the gaming, and he complained about nobody ever coming to talk to him. I missed most of his morning shows and he lost me when he refused a TAFY task, but he was still the one to watch, at least when Zach was asleep, and he'd be fun to hang out with.

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.
