Janelle sends a shout out

Janelle has sent a message to Hamsterwatchers: "I would love your vote to be back in the All Star game!"

Here she is with her friend Naters and her Buxom Blonde campaign slogan that none of the others can co-opt

You know we have to have her back in there, so here's a direct link to her voting page at CBS since their pages seem to default to Alison (what's up with that?).. also here's a direct link to Janelle's highlights video that ran on the casting special.. you'll find a link to her offical site below in the candidate roll call

Meanwhile mouse fingers & auto-vote programs are busy click-click-clicking and the candidates' whistle stop tours are underway.. I still can't make out how or why Dana & Erika figure into Madonna & INXS gigs, but they're listed on the CBS appearance schedule along with everyone's "Early Show", chats, and restaurant dates - go figure.. it looks like George is putting out the most effort as far as personal appearances so far, while the James Gang guerrilla campaign continues on the web

As usual, I don't care who wins - I'm just here for the cheap entertainment - so therefore I don't care (much) who gets in, but there are some things that might be fun to see: a Diane vs Ivette deathmatch; the Howie/Janelle/Kaysar trio entertaining overnighters again; hamsters & feedsters alike falling for whatever James or Will says; Jase finding a new bath buddy in Howie; a new round of Danielle impersonations; a Bunky & Cowboy cryfest; or George coming up with something to top blasting off in the shower

These aren't necessarily my picks - I'm just preparing to find entertainment from whoever does get in

Rumor mill update

Latest speculation & likely rumors indicate that the eight who aren't chosen will compete for the remaining two open spots - see Aldav's caps that clearly show 14 photo frames.. it makes sense: 12 would leave us two hamsters short from BB5 & BB6 though we're on the same schedule

Marcellas thinks the alternative to peanut butter will be tuna.. other ideas circulating are mac & cheese, Spam or tofu.. my choice would be a liquid diet as that would mess with them real good psychologically as well.. it has to be something healthy - if they get sick from malnutrition, a good medical lawyer has a better shot at breaking the contract than ambulance chasers picked up in strip malls by sour grapes sore losers

BB Park by TD is back!

I'm very pleased to say that TD is once again going to provide Hamsterwatch with mostly-daily installments of BB7 Park this year! The first installment is already up

TD worked tirelessly last year working up South Park-inspired companion pieces for the daily episodes here that were great fun.. they started in early August after I'd turned the BB6 hamsters into South Park characters on the July 12 ratings sidebar, which in turn were inspired by the great Grins at Jokers during BB5

TD's BB7 Park will be linked up on the daily index as we go and will have its own daily listing this year as well.. thanks TD!

Get a piece of BB

This tie-dye shirt made by Janelle last year and signed by her is up for auction in a fundraiser event to help support me so I can keep this site going this summer

It was made by Janelle for Howie for last year's Revive-a-Hamster America's Choice, worn by both him & Rachel and says AMERICA BRING KAYSAR BACK.. Janelle signed it "Love always, Janelle Pierzina 'BB6' " and sent it to me at the end of last season - huge thanks, Janelle!

Now that Janelle & Kaysar are both announced as being in the running for All-Stars, it's all in fashion again (sort of).. ok, even if it's not ultra-trendy style, it is a unique keepsake from BB6 and hopefully BB7 too

Wednesday's casting special came in 3rd behind Fox's 'So You Think You Can Dance' and 'Dateline NBC'

The polls are open: vote at CBS BB7 through June 28 9pm BB time/midnight Eastern. Make sure you get 'Your vote has been submitted' message on the right.

Daily rallies on 'The Early Show' and hopefuls are chatting all over town - Jokers and James seem to be hosting most of them.. battle lines seem clearly drawn except Howie who's bouncing between teams.

Check out the 20 suggestions that Entertainment Weekly forwarded to BB producers, also 6 'guaranteed' into the house

Hamster hopefuls may use "any reasonable means" to campaign their way back into the house.. note to hamster hopefuls: this space for rent

Move-in show is Thursday, July 6 at 8pm. It won't be live. Feeds will likely begin when it ends at 6pm BB time/9pm Eastern, or possibly when it ends in the west, 9pm/midnight (hopefully not 15 minutes into the show for the west like last year.) First HOH comp is usually endurance but will likely be long over when the feeds come on. BB will air Tuesday-Thursday-Sunday, all at 8pm

Pre-season ups for a terrific casting special Wednesday! They jumped right in at the start announcing names instead of waiting til the last 5 minutes like many of us expected, and they gave us good highlights for each of the 20 potentials. The mix of hopefuls is so varied and volatile they really should put them all in there and let them fight it out, but we'll have to settle for 6 of our picks and 6 of theirs (or 12 of theirs, depending how you look at it.) Julie teased about something worse than PB&J and an HOH room surprise (but not surprisingly didn't mention that the CBS site had already leaked the list of 20 on June 5.) Here's hoping for more shows like this one this season.. we've all had enough of the misdirection and created drama. Hamsters in the house, plain & simple, is all we need to see to stay happy.

Individual daily ratings will start when the feeds do.. their wheels are being readied but remain empty for now

I hope I can pull this off again this summer and am doing my best to make it happen but it isn't going to be easy. If you'd like to donate to the cause, please visit my sponsor links by clicking on the banners, or make a Paypal donation by email. Please support other BB7 fan sites that you like, too. Many thanks to those who have already contributed, and in advance to those who will

This site isn't necessarily about who should win, who will win, who I'd be friends with, or who is cute. It's about watching hamsters: which ones are doing what and why, which are fun and which are dull. If they aren't entertaining, get rid of 'em! Thanks for encouraging my behavior.. that dingo
