|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

Duos were reinstated for one week after Porsche opened Pandora's Box.
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 probably 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.

Finale finallyRachel won the final HOH comp by answering two questions right about things the jurors said versus Porsche's zero correct.. Rachel evicted Adam, the jury asked their abbreviated questions, Rachel repeated her spiel several times, and the jury cast their votes
Rachel won Big Brother 13 with four votes: Brendon, Jeff, Shelly and Jordan.. Jeff won the $25k favorite houseguest prize for the second time
A big thank you to each and every one of the hamsters for putting themselves out there for our amusement

Star of the SeasonIn a first, the Hamsterwatch Star of the Season isn't a hamster at all: this year's honor goes to Shelly's daughter Josie.. that might say a lot about this year's cast and feeds, but it says more about Josie: the 8-year-old had not one but two feature segments on CBS, and she showed herself to be bright, polite, articulate and intelligent - not to mention adorable, easily extracting the expected awws from viewers for a little girl missing her momma
She had me when Shelly told the others about her phone call and said that Josie screamed she got the teacher she wanted - a very big deal in 2nd grade - but when we saw the phone call and later when Josie was interviewed (including admonitions to her mom to stop lying, and to stick with Jorff), it was clear that little Josie was a star of the first caliber.. congratulations to Josie for this not-so-coveted title, and thanks for brightening up our summer
That's that, almostThe feeds went down early on Wednesday, possibly for the duration, and with that, the long drawn-out nightmare that was Big Brother 13 has just about come to an end.. to say this was the most boring season ever is subjective but possibly true.. you'll note the "next summer" teaser: CBS announced today that BB14 is officially a go.. talk about All-Stars 2 is possibly not just idle speculation - it's definitely not beyond the realm of possibilities.. at the very least, I'm guessing we could get another fans versus favorites theme
Remember though, it's not over after Julie announces the winner tonight: the feeds will pick up again after the finale for live backyard interviews as well as Thursday night's wrap party.. I'll also link up other post-interviews as they come along, and the Vegas Bash will be streaming online took money from people to stream over the weekend, but then they cut off the feed Friday night - WTF?
This season we were treated to five has-beens (six counting Dick, who may or may not have ever planned to spend the whole summer in there), and the eight fresh faces fit the usual casting mold of the last several seasons, albeit more ethnically diverse than usual.. the feeds were almost constant game talk, which is fine for those who like that sort of thing, but most of it was so much wasted breath & bandwidth: there wasn't a single surprise eviction all season
A quick glance at my extracurricular tally shows there wasn't much else: sex events were monopolized by Brendon & Rachel for the second season in a row, as were fights.. the only big group event was also theirs, but the trashbag wedding with its two days of prep was definitely one of the highlights of the feeds - sadly and typically, CBS overlooked it
The biggest surprise for me this year was Adam continually professing his love for this site.. it came as a shock to me but a welcome one: it was very nice to have recognition for my work after all these years, and many Hamsterwatchers were pleased to have one of our own in there.. I've said it many times but some still don't realize he's not affiliated with this site at all: he's just a fan of mine.. I don't know him from Adam
HuzzahAlong with Adam, my thanks go out to all my chatroom regulars, especially flashback queen @smellykelley, crack researcher @MelissaMeek, chaos confirmer @mamafox, and strategy advisor @CrazyReed.. also my cohorts in the unofficial one-person BB websites consortium, archivist extraordinaire Attw x and angry drunk Dogdave - as always, I couldn't have done this without you guys.. and huge thanks to DreamAngel/KrimsonLighting for another year of letting us Westies watch every show "on time", even with football and presidential speeches
Big thanks to Janelle Pierzina for her pre-season thoughts about the hamsters, and only the best wishes for an easy pregnancy and birth, and a happy, healthy baby - I'm sure she'll make a fabulous mommy.. I had hoped to have a few other formers chime in through the season but alas, it didn't happen
My biggest thanks go out to you Hamsterwatchers: thank you for reading me every day, for all the kind words and goof alerts, for following me on Twitter and Facebook and all the replies, retweets, #FFs and (most) comments.. HUGE thanks to all who donated, and special big ups to Fara, Tiffany and Bea for letting us know Adam's as nice a guy as he appeared to be - I'm very grateful for the new fans his mentions brought to the site.. follow me at @neonne for my snarky on other subjects - let me know you're a Hamsterwatcher

Which hamster should win $25k?
> Jeff, giving him substantially more cash than Porsche when combined with his previous $15k plus stipend
Wednesday's finale remained in second place with 7.65 million viewers, 4.6 rating and 8 share, behind 'Up All Night' and 'Free Agents' premieres on NBC with 10.9/6.7/11 and 6.3/4.0/7 respectively, and ahead of 'Primetime Nightline' on ABC with 4.1/2.8/5.

News & updatesAdam has seen the site for his season, some of it at least - he's not pleased with his BBQ Smackdown scores but hey, the Smackdown is not Big Brother. It's a brutal and very difficult competition.. few come out alive.
Apparently there was a problem on the road to the Vegas Bash involving BB12 Andrew, a bus, and several police officers.
Big Brother 14 is confirmed for summer 2012.
