>> Danielle is Head of Household - James & Kaysar are nominated <<

Back to reality (tv)

Yesterday's escape was fun, and I was all ready to come back to earth when some of my predictions started to come true

It sounds like Sarah is already working two jobs, and Marcellas looks like he's asking for a handout.. all things considered, I'll let the sidebar run another day and ease back into fact gradually

With all the plots, sub-plots, counterplots, secret alliances and sub-alliances I don't know what's really going on anyway

By the way, you can hold up the emails about the CBS contest.. yes of course they were crying about Janelle winning the phone call last year - it was Fiction Day here at Hamsterwatch - so text 3 to 81818 and give CBS your 99¢ (or better yet, send it to me.. at least you get a little something for it)

Back in the habitat, Janelle took herself off the block and Danielle put Kaysar on it (so much for my Marcellas prediction).. it's sounding like Kaysar will go but they don't vote til Wednesday and you know how this group is.. I'm staying in my fantasy world til Julie smashes it on Thursday

They pair off and whisper continually throughout the day, like they do.. Danielle & Marcellas are together a lot, but not necessarily happy about it

A few afternoon videos:
Awesome Spa Day Will's suggestion for America's Choice, and what they'll do when Howie wins the lottery
George's new costume plan jock straps for the next live show, plus James & Howie talk about the Nerd Herd
George has a game idea - his first! - he suggests to Danielle they have a meeting to strike a deal with James.. she doesn't jump on it

Kaysar's nominated but confident: he whispers with Janelle & James, saying things about "those idiots" and they all laugh.. he's on to James though.. Howie signals behind Marcellas' latest sob story - Marcellas finally catches him in the window/mirror.. the more miserable Marcellas gets, the more photogenic he becomes

Somebody forgets to remove the cardboard before cooking a pizza.. Danielle makes the next dinner.. Will does his feet

James is confident he'll stay and nervousing that he won't.. he hits the Reddi-wip again and takes his buzz outside.. when it wears off he tries the barbell Howie was lifting but can't quite get it up.. we get a rare on-the-block smile when he downsizes
I didn't cap this latest nitrous blast but I don't make this stuff up (usually)

Willboogie have an interesting convo in the jail/gym.. Boogie says Kaysar will be gone 5-1 after James nullifies Janelle's vote, Howie being the 1 to keep Kaysar - watch the video - they also plan a Diary routine.. Boogie's pump-you-up hour continues with a split-face reflection before he takes it outside to James & face-down George
Fantasy world dwellers take note: it's rare that Boogie knows more than Will.. also note that he says he got the 5-1 count from Danielle.. consider the source on this one, twice

Another prediction comes true

George does a commercial for Gas-X

They tease him for thinking Gas-X would help his farty problem.. they say it actually made Mr. Fart's problem worse

Danielle dishes up turkey meatloaf made with oatmeal, and potatoes.. gravy helps
Wine helps too.. nothing helps the sloppers sitting outside though.. apparently Erika's over her "broken rib" - now it's tummy troubles
George recovers and fries up a load of tasty slopcakes for the sloppers, yum!

James makes a sundae - he puts the Reddi-wip on the ice cream this time.. Marcellas hunts for something legal and ends up making a gallon of tea for his dinner

Danielle guides Howie in calisthenics and they show us their goodies.. and/or she shows him how she puts her head up.. err never mind.. Janelle plays cutthroat with the guys

For those about to rock

Will organizes a rock video

He recruits Boogie of course, and Howie & Janelle.. the song starts out as "Sponsor" but mutates to "Shower" as they go

It's the kind of thing we need more of, and Hamsterwatch salutes them

Making the Video:
setting it up - first run-through - World Premiere Video (quad) - after-party
At the after-party George is inducted as a Jedi knight, and they play with the knight's helmet/mixing bowl
Danielle, Erika & James participate as the audience during the video shoot and seem to have fun - Danielle even flashes her bra (and later claims Janelle was looking/acting trashy) - but they're soon back to misery and stashing ammo for later.. Danielle says she'll never use that bowl again.. she drains her wine again and goes inside, where she checks herself out in the mirror (take note of this for later)
Later over more wine, Danielle fills in George on the dealings, alliances & sub-alliances of the first few weeks.. he's amazed so much was going on under his nose

Around midnight James tells Erika & Boogie that he had his phone call with Sarah this morning, and shows them the crossed fingers secret signal he sends to her.. (I don't know if Boogie's shirt message applies in this case).. Will arrives and James tells it again in more detail.. Will sends us a message or two
Erika's a mess tonight.. Kaysar's in sombrero again before late Diary.. later he tells Danielle he's lost weight on slop

Assorted night-time videos:
(Note the calls to Diary in these late videos - editors need to add or touch up segments for tomorrow's show)
James, Danielle, Erika about Dr. Ruth, sexchat, and Dani's neeeeeds
Kaysar prays
James tells about his phone call with Sarah hours after it happened
James tells about the call again, in more detail
Howie's undies
Will talks to us, and addresses the food situation
Kaysar whispers with Willboogie about votes
Mirror-talk, Danielle spills her drink, and hair removal chat - note Danielle teasing the guys about checking themselves out in the mirror all the time.. she just did it a little while earlier - I guess she just does it when she thinks nobody's watching

Assorted bedtimes

Will spends a long, long time fixing up his many pillows & blankets

He says it's because he's scared of falling out of bed and that he always has been.. even when he sleeps on the floor

They get a clue and bring the cushions in from the outdoor furniture to sleep on
Danielle hangs out with the bugs 'n platitudes people as they nest and cocoon, cracking up at Will's many arrangements.. (after all that, he gets up again later)
Kaysar isn't so picky and neither is Boogie.. George even less
BB1 Josh shows up unexpectedly - apparently Erika (his ex) finds out.. Marcellas gets even more disgruntled
Oops fiction day was yesterday, sorry.. it's just James looking uncannily like Josh.. I don't know why Erika's banging her head

Late night videos:
Marcellas: "It doesn't stop sucking"
Marcellas & Erika plan a double DOR
A later bedtime - James makes a joke and Howie gets kicked out Janelle & Kaysar find out about his phone call around 2am and are shocked he didn't tell anyone
Danielle keeps Erika & Marcellas in the dark "I'm not going to tell you my plans" and "it changes day to day" and "either one can go" (is she planning to keep Kaysar?)
The Floatherd, part 1 Janelle this, Janelle that
The Floatherd, part 2 "It's season 6 all over again" (yep, it sure is)
The Floatherd, part 3 Erika calls out Danielle, kinda
Did Kaysar lie? Erika says Kaysar told her people were campaigning to keep her safe early on.. this surprises Danielle and they proclaim Kaysar lied.. but Danielle seems really stuck on the subject and wants Erika to get more details.. (why is Dani so concerned about this now? Is she planning to keep Kaysar? Well, is she?? Maybe not if she decides he isn't 100% honest like BB3 Jason)

Kaysar, love doctor

Kaysar & Janelle get up and chat outside for an hour or so around 4am.. they talk & laugh about travel, speed dating, pro's & con's of flirting, her & Michael's breakup, future plans, and topless beaches among other things.. she says she might like to have an upscale doggie boutique one day.. Kaysar says "Dogs only? What if my pet salamander needs a sweater?"

Lest feedsters translate their friendly rapport as true love (again), they confirm to us that they are officially not an item

Janelle worries again that her Air Force and/or NFL boyfriend broke up with her since she's kinda flirty with Will, and especially since Julie asked on tv if she's falling for him.. Kaysar figures if he did, there are probably plenty of guys watching that she'd like so he helps her formulate a personal ad of sorts

Watch the videos: part 1 - part 2 - no prisoners, no cheaters, no mind games

They talk game a bit after all that.. Kaysar tells her to watch out if he goes because James will eventually align with Danielle

I give up.. they figure out James every single night and then forget again every single day.. what's in that slop anyway??

Dear Big Brother,
You or your lawyers are obviously afraid to do like other countries and take a chunk out of their winnings or stipends every time they sing, so why not throw them in solitary or put them on slop for a day for each infraction? And when they talk about people who didn't sign releases or staff? We are all damn sick of the constant flames and WAY TOO LOUD music.

Where Are They Now? rerun
Arrows signify whether their lives have improved since the summer of 2006.


They spun off BB into a how-to home decor show specializing in on-the-fly room do-overs that cater to your personality (or lack of). It debuted on Saturday mornings and was an instant hit, picking up both the Barbie crowd and their parents, and moved to the CBS primetime lineup shortly after. 'Big Baby House' is now consistently one of the top five shows (better than BB ever did) and is hosted by Julie C. Moonves. Rumors say she's going to host the spinoff's spinoff next fall which is tentatively called 'Big Baby House Has a Baby' but they're unconfirmed and unlikely: Ms. Moonves is already hosting nine shows on CBS including the anchor spot on the evening news recently vacated by Katie Couric after her mysterious pipe-to-the-knee accident.

After his dreams of winning BB7 were dashed he spent the next couple of years trying alternate paths to a show biz career to no avail. Eventually he returned to his restaurant partnership but discovered the locks had been changed. He wandered around SoCal for six months after that looking for some dignity and a place to do his laundry before landing on Britney Spears' doorstep, coincidentally the same day she'd kicked K-Fed out of her basement. She & B-Mal have lived a happy life ever since, and are expecting their 8th child in the spring.

Nobody knows what became of her after BB7. Whenever she's approached and asked about 'Big Brother' she screams 'That's not me! Dani BB3 isn't here! Neither is Dani BB7! I never heard of either of them - why won't you people leave me alone and give me some peace?! And redemption!'

The reality grapevine claims she's successful doing something but nobody knows what it is. Whenever she's approached she throws her hands up and screams 'Why won't you paparazzi leave me alone? I just want to live an ordinary life in my bikini!' Sadly, she's never been approached by paparazzi as they've never heard of her. She continues her delusion though, and continues to befuddle out-of-towners in need of directions.

George was deluged with show biz offers since leaving BB7 and finally accepted one that many laughed about at the time, but 'Oatmeal Slop for Health' has become the top syndicated cooking show of all time. As a result, George was hired by Quaker Oats Company to replace the pilgrim advertising icon they used for decades in a seven-figure deal, and he co-founded a revolutionary oat-based flour that topped traditional flour sales last year. George still wears his chicken suit twice a year, drawing such huge crowds that Quaker, Foster Farms and KFC are said to be considering a merger since their fierce three-way bidding war for George's services ended in a standoff.

These days Howie's an aspiring meteorologist who acts as a light saber salesman and spokesman in his spare time. He'll appear in the next edition of the Guinness Book of Records, topping the Most Appearances on TV Reality Shows category with 84 shows under his belt. He's currently taping 7 more including the first one starring and named for him: 'Howie's Your Boobies' will showcase the reactions of ordinary women on a busy street when Howie approaches them and talks about their boobies. Industry sources predict it will be a hit.

After BB7 ended, James attempted to remain friends with his fellow hamsters and was quoted as saying they didn't respond to his calls or emails due to a conspiracy against him. He's still with the lovely Sarah who now holds two jobs to help pay off the $500k he spent but never won. She says they plan to get married someday, and adds that she hopes he can complete a rehab program to kick his nitrous oxide habit first. James recently filed his 17th lawsuit against CBS and Shapiro Grodner Productions, claiming they rigged both seasons against him. He works for a local used car lot two days a week while awaiting trial, just as he did before filings #1 thru 16 were dismissed by the courts as frivolous lawsuits.

Janelle is the most highly sought-after hamster of all time but she's turned down all television and movie offers to date. Half of her BB6 and BB7 co-stars claim she's just holding out for the right offer, but her quiet, secluded and successful non-show biz life indicates otherwise. Contrary to Erika, paparazzi do try to follow Janelle but this is the only known photo taken of her in public for several years. Rumors continue to swirl about her & Will Kirby but they remain unconfirmed.

Since guest-hosting 'Big Baby House' with Julie C. Moonves (where he was introduced as 'the most popular hamster ever') Kaysar has been successful in a number of arenas. His accomplishments include several temporary soap opera roles, public speaking engagements on 'The Game and The Strategy', and dry cleaning. He recently published his first novel entitled 'Here's the Thing' which was an instant best-seller even though its reviews were lukewarm across the board. He hasn't allowed his photo to be taken since leaving the BB7 house.

Last seen in a white bathrobe on Hollywood Boulevard, asking tourists for change and muttering curses interspersed with the names Amy, Danielle, Janelle, Danielle and Gretchen.

Dr. Will
After winning 'Big Brother' for a second time, Dr. Kirby went on to win the Nobel Prize for his patented, revolutionary reputation removal procedure, and his last three side business have each had successful IPOs. A sideline partnership with Chicken George went fowl foul when it was discovered Dr. Will didn't know the difference between butter & margarine, despite his Cordon Bleu-level garlic pressing technique. Rumors that he'll star on 'The Bachelor XXII' are unconfirmed, as are stories connecting him to his buxom blonde co-star Janelle Pierzina, now a recluse living somewhere in the Midwest. Dr. Will responds to queries about both rumors with the same press bio of six-time 'For Love or Money' winner Erin Brodie and a flyer for SoniClear. Kirby claims he has no hard feelings about Ms. Brodie's latest 'For Love or Money' cycle in which she convinced two of his former co-hamsters (Mike 'Boogie' Malin and Howie Gordon) to fall in love with her, and says he & Ms. Brodie have a doggie.


Sadly, she didn't stand a chance this year. She came in defeated & involved in a feud, and lost all her partners. Mrs. Smith didn't give us the fireworks she's capable of but she's always an all-star in my book and I wish her well.


His alliances and behavior were all over the map this time and both got him kicked out. He went out the back door again but it wasn't intentional this time. So long, mirror-face.


Not the most charismatic and she didn't start playing in time, but each side kicked her out so the other couldn't have her. Kudos to her for having the guts to return.


She worked out and hid in a vase but the potential for catfights & dramatics left with her. She didn't live up to her skanky rep: good for her, bad for us.

Purchases made through sponsor links and free trials will help me keep this site going. Paypal donations by email are also hugely appreciated. Please support other BB7 fan sites that you like, too. Many thanks!

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
