Watch Big Brother 13 on SuperPass! 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 13 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. If they aren't entertaining, get rid of 'em! Thanks for encouraging my behavior. Your pal, dingo


Lawon evicted 6-0
Brendon was revived
Daniele is Head of Household
Nobody is nominated
Nobody is Have-not


Take a swig whenever someone fingers their hair - avoid Jordan & Daniele if you're trying to cut back



Big Brother 13 at iTunesicon
Season Pass or individual episodes

Brendon was revived a week after eviction after apparently beating the other three evictees to date in a CBS poll, and beating August 11 evictee Lawon in a live ball-chute comp.

They called Adam's elf Cruddy and his beardless look Phillip.

Brendon's knees got messed up from the food comp with the ant costumes.

They called Dominic PT for pre-teen, a running gag about how young he looks, and/or part-time, referring to his modeling career.

Nominations & veto were pairs-based until there were 10 left.

The evictee's surviving partner got one of four Golden Keys, meaning they couldn't be nominated or play for HOH until there were 10 left.

Dick left mysteriously, off the feeds, due to 'personal reasons' per him and CBS. We may never know the full story.

CBS shows air Sundays and Wednesdays at 8pm, and live eviction Thursdays at 9pm

Big Brother After Dark airs 1-4am Thursdays and 12-3am other nights, on Showtime in USA and Global Reality in Canada

BB13 prizes are the same: $500k for the winner and $50k for 2nd place. The others still earn $750 a week including pre-show hotel and jury sequester. The BB veterans might get more.

The habitat has 52 cameras and 95 microphones.

The recorded Big Brother in-house announcements are the voice of producer Don Wollman.

All feeds stay on one 'scene' when someone's in Diary.

Eerie calm

The Thursday bodycount aka HOH lockdown for crew rehearsal downstairs never fails to amaze me year after year.. you throw a group of hamsters together who normally never shut up, and they all go deathly silent.. well, so many of them expect to be stars after BB - maybe they're auditioning for "CSI" or "NCIS"

As usual on a Thursday, this is pretty much just a placeholder here as things will get a bit busy for me later and I am prepping ahead.. POWER STATUS to your left will be kept up to date as we go, but this main section might lag a bit as it'll be a busy night.. later I'll (finally) shift the evicted empty-wheel hamsters to the bottom in my Ratings section like previous seasons, once we know who's really gone for good

Lawon was evicted 6-0 once, and then permanently evicted when he lost a balls comp to Brendon.. Brendon, Rachel, Jeff, Jordan, Adam & Shelly did a happy joy hugging dance in the lounge while Daniele & Kalia pouted, but then Daniele won the HOH comp - it sounds like math/estimating, and took place behind trivia - and everyone's mood reversed

If you STILL don't have the feeds, this would be a very, very good time to get a 3-day free trial, before all hell breaks loose


Here we go again

Jeff, Porsche & Adam cooked and baked for the Have-nots traditional feast at midnight.. Rachel poured herself and drank some Sprite ahead of time - flashback 8/11 11.52pm F3/4.. their clock is 4 minutes fast but the others all waited til 12:00.. chances are nothing will come of it, but it makes you wonder why they even bother with such rules if there's no enforcement.. kudos to eagle-eye Bonbon5 in Hamsterwatch Chat for catching this one

Daniele's HOH room reveal was the same as most of them anymore, except that she was locked out for a few minutes.. once inside she got pics of Dick with long hair and few tats, America's former player and her now-buddy Eric Stein from BB8, her cat, and her roomie & girlfriend, who also sent this week's letter, along with enough snacks & goodies to supply a small convenience store

Odds are pretty good she'll put up Rachel & Brendon and Shelly's name also.. we'll know for sure on Friday


Ratings - Revive-a-Hamster edition

Ratings are based on entertainment value, and I'm a little shell-shocked
VTE = Voted to evict

Packing so much into Thursday's show is upsworthy, even with what felt like extra commercial breaks and more of the ball-chute ramps we saw way too much of on Wednesday, but they neutralized themselves for withholding the HOH comp we usually see plus a fair bit of time after it ended. They also started up the dreaded day count errors again and they're making my Extracurricular Tally way too long with their goof list. I'd rather eat slop than hear 'turned the house upside down' again, and I'm sad they totally omitted Shelly and her Evict Porsche Plan again, leaping straight to 'Kalia pitched the idea of keeping Rachel safe' to Daniele. Julie disengaged her Chenbot for a minute and popped a funny about Lawon's 'secret power' and that's always good, but she really cut loose when she choked him in her interview - see Links of the Day below. I hope those who wanted Brendon back 'just to see Daniele's & Kalia's faces' are happy. They were miserable for an hour or so, but now we've got happy girls back in HOH and we're back to slurpydurp downstairs.

Paired with Dominic - GOLDEN KEY
Won: One week elf suit
VTE Lawon
Like the other 'extras' in the cast, also known as non-vets, he was all but forgotten on Thursday's show as well as afterward, except he did make a point to renew his friendly relationship with Daniele after the HOH comp, one which he's been quietly working on and that will most likely pay off for him this week.

Paired with Rachel
Won: Revival
He might be back technically, but that doesn't mean I have to acknowledge him anymore. I've had enough of this guy.

Paired with Dick - GOLDEN KEY/TICKET
VTE Lawon
She won in something that sounded like it had math involved so that's pretty good to have beaten the physics/chemistry duo, but we'll have to wait to see how it played out. Or how the edit plays it out, anyway. I'm not crazy about a third week of her & Kalia holing up in HOH since their mean girl stuff lacks any humor or wit (see: BB12 Britney). Unless everything changes drastically in a hurry or unless the jury wavers from party lines, she's playing for second place again at best, since she's now responsible for getting two teamies (votes) evicted.

Paired with Jordan
Won $10k
VTE Lawon
He grunted around awhile but then he bucked up and got back to a few one-liners, and later he cooked up his traditional Thursday midnight feast for the sloppers to enjoy. This time he got to enjoy it with them, even though Brendon crashed their party and helped himself to a second dinner.

Paired with Jeff
VTE Lawon
She put in some quality time consoling Shelly when she had her post-show meltdown. Jordan's running an impeccable social game once again and in her case, social game means being pleasant to be around for friends or foes, babysitting and comforting as needed, and being the farthest thing from needy we've got. Just give her the money (again) so we can all go home.

Paired with Lawon
No vote (HOH)
I can't.

Paired with Keith - GOLDEN KEY
VTE Lawon
She switched teams in the nick of time, didn't she?

Paired with Brendon
No vote (nominee)
She was so much better this past week than we've ever seen her in two seasons.. coincidence? Well, he's back and already sucking the life she'd started to get back out of her again. Will we ever get Rachel with booze and without Brendon? It's not too much to ask.

Paired with Cassi - GOLDEN KEY
VTE Lawon
She crumbled hard tonight and it was painful to watch, but it was probably inevitable after working so hard for so long, especially after this past week's frenzy of overtime. In a way I do feel for her missing her little girl, but in a way I don't: she knew the deal and she decided to come anyway. I'm looking forward to a rebound from her but I kind of hope she lays low for awhile, as there's no reason for her to stick her neck out this week. I think she made Julie blush with her comment about shaving Adam's something else.

Paired with Kalia
Won: nothing
My favorite hamster in years, he came out with his best stuff late nights so many missed it, but he gave great Diary, wore kooky outfits and officiated at the trashbag wedding with tremendous style & flair. He caught flak for pawning himself out the door but his teamies encouraged it and put him up, so it's not all on him. He was Lawonderful with a fantastic laugh and he'll be missed.

Paired with Adam
Won: nothing
He was the first casualty of Daniele's too hard/too fast strategy but he didn't help himself by not brushing up more on how BB works. He told a lot of pointless lies about his modeling, schooling, virginity and then fessed up to them, which might have come back to bite him anyway. His adolescent jokes & behavior did nothing for me.

Paired with Shelly
Won: nothing
She started off okay and had Dominic in her pocket, but Shelly befriended her so well that when they were both nominated, Cassi just laid down and died. She complained a lot, failed to fulfill her catfight potential, and was the third model in a row to be booted out second. She had the best Mirror-Face since BB5/7 Jase.

Paired with Porsche
Won: nothing
He claimed to be a fan since BB1 but even watching only CBS, he clearly wasn't paying attention: who throws a veto comp when they're on the block? He went in with a clearly outlined womanizing strategy which failed miserably, he set off another BB Weinergate, and he panicked himself right out the door.

Paired with Daniele
Won: nothing
We haven't had a premiere night no-show since BB9 Jacob, and we haven't had a mysterious early exit since BB9 Neil. These pairs twist seasons just seem to complicate things for production. No real word yet on why Dick's gone (and there may never be) but he sure was looking rough in the premiere.

News & updates

Revive-a-Hamster is on! Brendon won the viewer poll of the four evictees and beat Lawon in a balls-in-the-chute comp. I thank everyone who participated in my little boycott attempts: maybe our numbers weren't big, but it's the thought that counts. I still firmly believe it's not right to let someone end up on the jury who missed a full week.

We should now be at jury with nine left (seven jurors plus two finalists) which means five weeks extra pay for them.
