Day 7 - Wednesday 6/24
We're off!The first premiere finally arrived, and eight of them were greeted by Julie and then each other as they did their self-intros with the traditional champagne toast.. Da'Vonne was the first to enter the habitat, meaning she won't win the season if that record/curse holds as it has for 16 USA and 3 Canada seasons.. she entered with Shelli, Clay, Austin, and they were followed by Audrey, Meg, Jace, James
Audrey outted herself as transgender right off the bat - to overall positive reactions - but several of the others started with the lies (yes, already).. Clay withheld his football playing, Austin told them of his many injuries but didn't tell them all are fully healed, and Da'Vonne told them she's a second grade teacher rather than a poker dealer.. Shelli and Clay are already hot for each other, especially Shelli for Clay, despite their 10-year age gap.. also Shelli told them she has a twin brother - more on that in a bit
Audrey suggested to the girls that they form an alliance but she was careful not to use the word - Da'Vonne voiced it, and it was done - for now.. then Julie announced some twistage: the dreaded dual HOH and Battle of the Block are back, and also there will be an additional "twist every week", and then they were off to comp.. Julie told them one had to sit out (why?) but they agreed on Da'Vonne after she'd volunteered
The first HOH comp was an ET cross-promo event with a movie premiere theme, hosted by Kevin Frazier, and it was a gloriously messy affair of Red Wedding proportions.. it was the same setup as the BB15 revival baseball comp: standing on little moving platforms while tomatoes were hurled at them.. the winner would be the first one to collect ten in his or her little chute
Clay, Austin, and Meg came off early, and then a wondrous thing happened: all four remainders plopped off into tomato goo at the exact same time! Julie said they'd have to "check instant replay" for the winner and cut to commercial.. the winner turned out to be James, and that was lucky to avoid early controversy since he'd been ahead in the save 'n stack count
Then Julie told us (not them) that along with the rest of the hamsters coming along on tomorrow's show, as well as the first special guest twist delivery, that this season will have switching twins à la Big Brother 5's Adria & Natalie! Only the best twist ever! She didn't tell us who it'll be and like BB5, there are a few twins in our cast, but most money's on Liz and her twin Julia.. we'll find out soon enough
Remember to click "previous Hamsterwatch episode" up top to see what's come before, and the "Feeds Updates" tab up there will get you exactly that, including a very detailed recap of tonight's premiere along with many screencaps thanks to super hard working @UGotBronx.. my left and right sidebars will be continuously updated as we go, and the main section here will be as erratic as ever
NOW IS THE TIME TO GET YOUR FEEDS - they will kick on Thursday night 9pm Pacific/midnight Eastern and will be accessible via computer and mobile device browser at that same link - they are not in the CBS app.. no promo code is needed, and there is no season pass: it's $5.99 per month recurring billing, and includes archived air shows of BB and most CBS shows, as well as live CBS viewing in some regions.. After Dark also starts Thursday night (Friday morning) on Pop (formerly TVGN) in USA and Slice in Canada
As always, thank you for visiting the site and/or following me on Twitter, and for continuing to encourage my behavior - here's to a great season! <champagne clink>
Premiere DayThe day has finally arrived for Julie to say those four little words she says so well, and the wait will be over - almost over, that is: the feeds begin after Thursday's second premiere ends in the west, which means they'll kick on at 9pm Pacific/midnight Eastern
NOW IS THE TIME TO GET YOUR FEEDS - you've procrastinated long enough, and the hamsters have already been in there a full week without us.. we'll have a lot of catching up to do.. no promo code is needed, and there is no early bird discount or season pass - it's $5.99 per month recurring billing, and includes archived air shows of BB and most CBS shows, as well as live CBS viewing in some regions
While we wait, I'm pleased to announce that I was asked by the wonderful Andy Dehnart to do a Reality Blurred guest post about the whole feedster experience - please to enjoy
Day 5 - Monday 6/22
StickynotegateStill not much new news, except that CBS released an EPK (see Links of the Day below) that was the usual quick clips and sound bites of the new cast, except that it ended by showing a notice board with stickynotes the hamsters are scribbling away at during the video, and there are 16 of them
I've labeled the notes on the board from what's visible on the notes themselves and in the video - click for full size.. only Audrey's is unidentifiable from our 14, and that leaves one left over which I figure belongs to Jeff Weldon's
Rumors of Amazing Race addition(s) to our cast have been circulating for a couple weeks, and Jeff's was the name most mentioned (that I heard, anyway).. he's still AWOL from social media, and it turns out his showmance and slurpydurper from TAR 26, Jackie Ibarra, has an identical signature as a Jackie who signed one of our stickynotes, little heart and all
While this is by no means an official confirmation, I'm calling it 99% that Jeff & Jackie will be joining our cast.. incidentally, Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan are also seen giving promo blurbs in the EPK, and they mention "a casting twist" as one of the possibilities we'll see over the summer
Meanwhile, some cable guides are now showing different wording for Thursday's premiere #2, eliminating the premature eviction language, but it's still showing on my Uverse guide as of now anyway - maybe they're just slower to update.. no telling if we'll have a Jodi or Risha situation now or not
Finally, since we know the finale will be September 23, if you've been holding off on getting your feeds in order to limit the cost to three months' worth, now is the time to sign up.. thanks so much to everyone who has already gotten them here! I couldn't do it without you
Day 3 - Saturday 6/20
Don't sleepSo Julie says in an After Dark promo, and she's looking like she hasn't.. on the contrary, now is the time to stockpile as much R&R and shut-eye as possible because we only have a few days before it all begins, and then sleep is in short supply until September
While a twist a week seems beyond excessive, we'll just have to wait and see what form(s) this will take.. the recently wound-up third Big Brother Canada season was riddled with twists, which turned the whole thing into a game of luck much of the time, but we might get a lot of fluff too.. as far as who will deliver the twists, a few high profile formers remain AWOL, and I'm expecting a much earlier than usual visit from Zingbot as well as a lot of cross-promo opps, particularly James Patterson's Zoo
I have to say I'm cautiously optimistic about this cast, and while that makes me want to slap myself, I'm withholding most judgment until the feeds start and we see them in action without their happy perky interview faces and Diary voices
Meanwhile, sign up for All Access so you're ready! No promo code is needed and it's easy to set up, but don't leave it til the last minute and have to miss the first night's feeds on Thursday - they'll have already been in there a full week and crucial relationships, alliances, pinkyswears, and hair disasters will already be well underway
REAL-TIME FEEDS UPDATES I'm pleased to announce @UGotBronx will be providing feeds updates for the third season here.. you can find them at the "Feeds Updates" tab atop every page.. you can also sign up for the feeds in the updates area to help support her tireless efforts, and/or donate to her via Paypal to UGotBronx(at)gmail(dot)com
Remember to check the left and right sidebars here for news and info all season long, and/or my Twitter, and remember to click "previous Hamsterwatch episode" at the top of each page here to catch up what came before.. most importantly, get everything done that needs doing now! Time is running out
Ratings - Crescent Fresh 14 editionRatings are based on potential entertainment value, as I see it now - be sure to check the BB17 Cast folder in the Updates area for their bios, interviews, and assorted other links which are still being added - it's a process
I'm letting these first impressions ride for now, until all are present and our feeds begin
