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

Ramen, raisins, and rabies (Friday 7/26)

Their Have-not comp was a team balancing & building deal with a detectives/evidence theme, and snappy team shirts.. Candice, Amanda, Judd, and GinaMarie lost, and their supplement is ramen and raisins - not too shabby.. GinaMarie is the only first-timer

Aaryn wore the bear shirt for nominations, where she put up Howard & Spencer, as planned.. feeds returned before they'd even unhooked from the hugs that will end Sunday's show

Nothing much happened otherwise, beyond Howard holding an impromptu meeting about his ethics versus $500k - flashback 7/26 11.26pm.. Jessie didn't feel well and laid down on the HOH bathroom floor for awhile - it sounded like she had a migraine.. Judd helped her down to her bed and looked after her.. both McCrae/Amanda and Howard/Candice had side-by-side showers and makeout/cuddle sessions before separating for bed.. gametalk continued and MVP paranoia ran rampant again

The inappropriate comments keep coming from them, along with the usual things hamsters always say that upset those not on their team, and the outrage and backlash about all that and anything/everything else keeps coming out here, along with cries of racism, bullying, bigotry, and a building frenzy of hate.. you can't protect anyone from their own idiocy, but it's not too late to get a rabies booster to protect yourself from the frothing madness - we definitely have an epidemic underway


Rabies (Thursday 7/25)

One third through, it's safe to say this is a most unusual season of Big Brother.. I don't follow many sports, but there's always been a kind of "my team rules, your team sucks" mentality among the feedsters about the hamsters, usually in relatively good fun.. lately things seem to be escalating more towards events like the SF Giants fan who was beaten almost to death or the Brazilian soccer referee who was recently beheaded and literally torn to pieces on the field

Maybe it's because several members of our cast keep saying things nobody should ever say, maybe it's because the gameplay is more random than strategic this year, or maybe it's because the funny, entertaining hamsters didn't show up, but whatever the cause, the result seems to be a global and growing epidemic of rabies among ourselves.. I might reread Chuck Palahniuk's Rant for some tips to turn rabies into an adventure rather than a problem but in the meantime, I'll be spending a bit less time than usual reading my social media replies and answering questions for awhile, and going back to trying to amuse myself and hopefully a few of you

Once again, you don't have to take my word for anything: get the feeds to watch everything as it unfolds, Canadians too, for just $9.99 a month.. remember to click "previous Hamsterwatch episode" at the top of any page to see what came before, and feel free to click the banner up there for any of your Amazon purchases anytime



Kaitlin went out unanimously - even Elissa backed down, and Aaryn became the first repeat HOH this season on a rolly-ball roulette apparatus, aka a "crapshoot comp," which would theoretically let her off the hook from previously promising she wouldn't try to win this one if she was allowed to stay.. Deathrace 2013 fans were thrilled to see the key get stuck in her hair when Judd put it on her - it stayed stuck til Julie said buh-bye

After the show they all scurried to their corners to psst psst, the most notable psst being Helen telling Judd, Amanda and McCrae that she thinks it's time to "get Elissa out".. Elissa elissercized in front of gametalkers, like she does, and general silliness overtook most of them, especially Jessie, who popped out of a pillow nest to scare Helen and then randomly rolled over Amanda

The rest of them decided to prank Aaryn for the weekly HOH room hollering: they all hid in the chess area on the balcony while she was in Diary, and they were silent when she came out hollering.. unlike prior years' pranks where the hollerer was pelted with pillows for instance, this group stayed pretty quiet other than a few muffled giggles.. Aaryn knew something was up but she had no idea where they were til she hit the stairs.. she was a good sport about it and it was a rare light & fun moment for all

After the dutiful showing off of the goods and reading of the letter, they scattered to carry on the psst psst until the midnight booze delivery and stuffing of the former Have-nots' faces

It seems like Howard and Spencer are the likely nominees as of now, and the viewers are voting for the third nominee again - Julie let Kaitlin in on that one, but not the rest of them.. bedtime got weird as Howard walked in on Andy telling Amanda & McCrae everything Howard had said upstairs.. when Howard went to update Candice, she got agitated and raised her voice, saying repeatedly "get off me, get off me!" Fortunately for all, he finally did, but he followed into the Have-not room to carry on their endless debate some more.. meanwhile Spencer mooned and Amanda romped through the habitat topless

Won: Nothing
She was a caboose for the mean girl train and when she wasn't straddling Jeremy, she was laying around making out with him, including in her bestie's HOH bed whenever Aaryn stepped away. She took being widowed better than GinaMarie, but she had several days to prepare for it and seemed almost proud of making 'Big Brother history' by using her veto. Otherwise she brought eyebrow adventures, and apologies when she mouthed off, which is more than some.

Won: Permanent Have-not pass
He claimed 1/16 Cherokee but he besmirched that heritage regularly, along with many others. He caused and starred in the big Winegate fight, smooched with Kaitlin while laying his hand on Aaryn's leg, wore a diaper, and mistakenly boasted he'd win every comp. He was a boy in a man's body, but his tattoos were nicer looking than most heavily tatted hamsters' have been. He'll be most remembered for being the asshat of BB15.

Won: Nothing
He came in saying he hoped for stardom but it probably won't happen as a result of this show. Overnighters got to know his blue hoodie & cap well, and he was usually the last one to go to bed. That's usually good strategy but it didn't help him. The over-the-top character he played in pre-season interviews gave him a rough start with most, but he didn't stick long enough for us (me anyway) to get to know what he's really about.

Won: Nothing
He didn't bring much to the feeds and he seemed oblivious about how the show works, but those types are the ones who get blindsided and we always like to see that. The Aaryn & David Comedy Show was fun for a minute but all the controversy she fed took the fun out of that, so it's just as well he got gone early. Back to the beach and watching BB on the couch with mom.

Bigotgate oozed farther beyond our insulated BB world more than any prior scandal, going all the way to TMZ, CNN, The New York Times, and international news & media outlets. Aaryn Gries and GinaMarie Zimmerman were fired from real world jobs as a result of bigoted remarks on the BB15 feeds, Aaryn from a modeling contract and GinaMarie from her pageant company. Spencer's employer, Union Pacific, issued a statement about not condoning some of his remarks (he is a union employee).

Evel Dick Donato's Dick at Night show is back this summer on Vimeo, and he'll have special guests, former hamsters, plus a Catladies Corner segment with @Clio_the_Leo and @Catvanzyl!

Big Brother Australia starts up again July 28.

Big Brother UK kicked off June 13 with Emma Willis hosting. This year had twins playing as one, a mother/daughter playing separately, and an actor/mole who's only there was to mess with the hamsters. Watch on YouTube.
