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

Back to Jeffish (Monday 9/15)

They were woken up early, given tie-dye t-shirt kits, and then they disappeared behind Jeffish highlights, likely until after Tuesday night's show airs.. so what they thought would be a "special treat" from and/or for feedsters turned out to be another FU to paying customers, while those who have TVGN will get to watch the crafts tonight

I'll post eviction/HOH spoilers if I get them from a reliable source, but you can pretty much bank on Frankie meeting Julie tonight, to air Tuesday

A special treat (Sunday 9/14)

So they assumed when BB told them to get to bed early because they were going to be woken early Monday morning with "activities".. we know that means they'll be taping three hours in the morning to run for Monday night's BBAD, but these "superfan" hamsters don't.. instead, they took that to mean they're getting a treat voted upon by feedsters, maybe another doggie.. so like the dutiful kids they are, they bedded down very early, for them - Victoria with an extra creative sleeping style

Otherwise, they did their photobooth and not much else besides the usual psst-pssting and parannoying over who will pick whom at the end, and still more season rehashes

And another scandal (Saturday 9/13)

Most of the action was off the feeds today, as Frankie's sister, mom, and bestie Bieber took to Twitter to campaign for him to win the viewer favorite prize money

Far be it from me to say Big Brother should be fair - by definition it isn't - but this kind of thing is over the line, simply due to the numbers behind them, most of whom had probably never heard of the show before, but doubly so when Frankie's one of the most universally despised hamsters of all time - by feedsters that is, and a good portion of CBS-onlies too, if my informal straw poll means anything

They've already awarded a staggering $75,000 in cash this season, in addition to the finalists' winnings and $1,000 a week stipends, so there might not even be a viewer favorite prize this year.. but if there is, the only decent way to handle it would be to eliminate the TAFY guys from being eligible.. obviously it would go to Zach if they did that, which really would be fair since he was the tool TAFY used to earn most of their cash

Another day, another scandal (Friday 9/12)

The latest one erupted from a Derrick/Frankie convo beginning at 1.29pm where they discuss an extra $50,000 if one (or both) of them make it to finals and/or win the season.. the details are sketchy, the accuracy is unverifiable, but the Friday afternoon BB interwebs exploded since it appears to be a Save Frankie effort by production.. if it's true

Producer Chris Roach replied on Twitter to Shelly Moore that it's "not correct" - at least as questioned by her, that they'd both get $50k extra if they both get to finals - he didn't say which part was not correct.. I'll wait for CBS to post or announce details before leaping to one conclusion or the other, but if any of it is true, my sticking point will be that Derrick & Frankie think we voted for it

Cody won the veto, and on it goes

The Trashing (Thursday 9/11)

Codysaurus came to an end again, and the five were locked into HOH to watch the jurors come back in and trash the habitat for Sunday's show.. they did a bang-up job of it too, spreading clothes, towels, personal belongings and food everywhere.. Hayden dumped out the kitchen silverware and grabbed Nicole for a kiss - she kind of pushed him back.. she then ran to the living room sprinkling Froot Loops, and gave the box to Zach who was dancing on the table, and he dumped the rest of the cereal and box-bottom dust over his head - Flashback 9/11 11.35am.. we didn't see much of it before the fishies took them away, but what we did see was great fun.. the five were laughing at all this as they watched, but that changed later

The jurors got to do the luxury comp that had been announced on the tv, and Hayden won or found $10,000 - I don't know how.. he split it with Victoria, and I don't know how that came about either, but each of the five were wearing a TEAM ____ shirt with a juror name on it when feeds came back.. I don't know if they were paired up by choice or draw

The cleanup later was funny, as they ranted and raved about the mess and those who made it.. every drawer had been turned out and there was "chicken juice" around the kitchen, and most everything else that wasn't nailed down had been dumped, overturned and/or spread around.. resentment and bitterness about a "bitter jury" rose as the five cleaned and griped, Victoria's infamous necklace was broken (again?), and someone drew a circle around and X through her name on the bathroom door - my money's on Zach for that.. Derrick consoled her about it, again/still, saying some of them didn't even last long enough to add their name to the graffiti there.. also, Caleb found Frankie's buttplug during the cleanup, and he was ecstatic - Flashback 9/11 1.18pm

Exercise in futility (Wednesday 9/10)

So tonight's show and the past week appear to be.. we'll find out soon enough how it'll all go down, but in the meantime we have Julie's explanation via Entertainment Weekly, including a PS there indicating everyone will play for HOH except Derrick

Meanwhile they did their usual live day men's hair salon and Caleb cleaned up crumbs and dog hair

They didn't vote, nobody was evicted, Cody's back in his dinosaur suit, and Caleb won the HOH teeter-totter comp redo.. he'll probably put up Derrick and Victoria, with an eye toward Frankie for a renom.. my best guess at the schedule for the next two weeks is to your left

Meanwhile on the other feeds, four have now left Utopia (including the one who got the boot before launch), one new one has joined to stay, they continue to argue a lot over everything, sex has happened, and the widlife is superb

Still on ignore

Won: $5,000, 48 hr Adam & Eve with Caleb

To follow, maybe

Won: Football trip

She was the non-actormodel and longtime fan we always hope for, but many hated her anyway. I didn't mind her at all, despite her constantly saying this or that was 'the most disgusting thing/person on the planet' - many of us do the same. She laughed a lot, always a good thing, and she petted Cody too much. Her hubby Tim was one of the best relatives we've ever had, taking on haters like a superhero swatting away mosquitoes.

Won: 1 week frog, 1 week Germitard, revival

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: $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: $5,000
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.
