Tonight's The Night!

I'm so excited that the time is finally here - Big Brother 13 starts tonight!

The first episode of this Big Brother season airs tonight on CBS at 9:00 PM ET/8:00 PM CT. The live feeds are scheduled to go live at 1:00 AM ET/Midnight CT. Big Brother After Dark on Showtime 2 is scheduled to start at the same time the live feeds are tonight and will run for three hours as in previous seasons. 

Hopefully, you already signed up for your live feeds to take advantage of the discount (and if you didn't then shame on you!). Now that your live feeds are already taken care of the next thing I highly recommend you do is to install the Big Brother Lite viewer by going to www.bigbrotherlite.com and downloading it. The Big Brother Lite viewer is free, allows you to view multiple feeds at one time, lets you access Flashback, and is pinnable to the top of your other windows so that you can goof around on the internet while keeping an eye on what's going on the house. There are many more features to the viewer so click on that link above and read all about it.

At this point your DVR should be set, your computer at the ready, and your family and friends forewarned about the upcoming season and how your attention might not be solely on them. You should also have memorized the new houseguest's names so that you can remember tonight which jackass might have made a jackass move.

Finally, have you listed to the first episode of our Big Brother Gossip show yet? If you haven't or you're not aware of what I'm talking about, some of us here are recording a show on Saturday nights (more often if the need arises) to be put up here on the site for you to listen to. You can click on the little widget over there on the upper right part of the page to check it out and let us know what you think.

So are you ready for tonight? Are you ready for this season? Are you excited? Let us know in the comments!

The Big Brother 12 Premiere Was Here!

Annie likes Britney. Hayden likes Kristen. Matt lied about himself. Enzo likes Rachel's boobs. Ragan seems to like Brendon a little bit. Kristen likes Hayden. Rachel has no clue about the Jewish religion. Andrew lied about himself. Enzo is worried about the law. Britney is engaged. Annie likes Enzo. Ragan lied about himself. Britney loves Ragan because he's "obviously a flaming homosexual." Annie didn't reveal her bisexuality. Let's toast!

Yes, tonight was the start of Big Brother 12. Can you say interesting? I thought the show tonight was one of the better premieres in recent years. The hamsters seem to be intriguing so far but not so dramatic or vapid that I found myself hating any one of them just yet. That actually kinda depresses me! LOL!

Julie (hey girl!) revealed the saboteur twist early on.  The houseguests all seemed genuinely shocked and didn't give up much in the diary room.  Julie told them that the saboteur could sabotage an individual, a group, or all of them.  That could be important down the road I'd imagine.  She told them that if the saboteur is evicted before five weeks is up, that they would walk out with nothing. But if they make it, they could win $50,000.  It was fun watching them freak out about who it could be. And honestly, I have no clue who it is.  I think it's a female but that's about it.

Now let's get to the first Head of Household competition.  Julie told them they had to split into two groups of six but that meant one person sitting out.  And of course the person sitting out didn't have a shot at the first HOH title (you kidding? I would have sat it out too!).  Andrew immediately volunteered to sit out and wouldn't you know it, the Jewish guy had to wear a weiner.  It was plastic though so wouldn't it technically be kosher?

So the mustard (yellow) and ketchup (red) teams had to hang on to weiners to make it across the backyard.  There were quite a few face-plants in the process which made me laugh hysterically.  But the big news was that as people crossed they would be eligible for cash prizes.  The first one across on each team wins $10,000 but also loses the chance to become HOH.  To become HOH, the last person from the team that gets their weiner across the yard wins the HOH title.

In all of this, Andrew becomes safe from eviction this week because he chose to sit out the competition. Monet and Annie were the first members of their teams to make it across which means they've already won $10,000 this season (but Kristen really wanted it more than Annie).  Britney fell in the competition and hurt her knee (the other team replaced her with Kristen - not smart).  Hayden was the last person from the first team to make it across and won Head of Household. 

The rest of the show was full of Saboteur business.  You can go to the CBS site and choose who you think it is and find out with everybody else who it actually is on Thursday, July 15th in the first live show of the season.  We then got to see a little bit about the Saboteur making their appearance when the lights went out in the house.

Not one to let anything get by him, Enzo immediately thought it was an act of sabotage.  Gee, ya think? And Brendon then chose to brush his teeth in the dark.  Not suspicious is it?  Andrew chose to play pranks on the others in the dark.  Not suspicious either is it?  The 'hidden' saboteur, by way of the flat screen in the living room, informed the others after the lights came back on that the storage room had been locked and to sleep with their eyes open.  No soup for the hamsters!

The show closed with telling us that Sunday's show at 8:00 PM ET will show us who Hayden nominated for eviction.  On Wednesday 8:00 PM ET is the POV show.  And then on Thursday 8:00 PM ET we'll have the first live eviction of the season and also find out who the saboteur is.

So what did you think about the first show of the season? Anybody you like more or less after seeing them on TV? Who do you think the saboteur is?  And are you ready for the live feeds to begin in just a couple of hours?  Let us know in the comments!

Happy Big Brother 12 Premiere Day!

It's that time of year that all of us Big Brother fanatics know and love! Tonight is the premiere of Big Brother 12!

I hope you stocked up on frozen pizzas for the family, finished spring cleaning, and bought the pets some extra food.  Did you already warn your family and friends about not bothering you during the show?  Do you have all of your favorite BB12 sites bookmarked and ready to go?  Psst, I hope you've bookmarked Big Brother Gossip by the way.

Big Brother begins tonight on CBS at 8:00 PM ET/7:00 PM ET and then, after the show finishes airing on the west coast, the live feeds will start.  If the first night of live feeds are like most previous seasons, they'll have booze and be acting a little crazy because they'll be aware that we are actually watching them.

Speaking of watching them, how we watch them will be very different this season.  Instead of watching them using RealPlayer, we will be watching them from within a web browser.  Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari - pick your poison.  I prefer Chrome myself (and if you use Chrome, you can pin the live feeds to the top of the screen in their own tab using this handy extension called DeskPins).

The website you'll be using to watch the live feeds themselves are: http://superpass.real.com/big-brother/live-feeds.  So be sure to bookmark it!  And yes, you'll still need to sign up through Real Networks to watch the feeds.  Real Networks began broadcasting this season's FOTH (if you don't know what that is then Google it) last night and even broadcast a video chat with Chelsea and Missy.  It was obvious they were still working on getting things straightened out then but they were working on things late into the night and I hope the kinks get taken care of before tonight.

I will be creating a Fafarazzi group so that all of us can compete against each other again this season.  If you're new to Fafarazzi, you'll need to set up an account over there (it's free) and then pick your team here.  For those of you interested in chatting during the show tonight, you can do so either in the built-in chat room here (at the bottom right of the page in the bar) or at the old Silly Hamsters chat room located right here.  (I'll be in the old chat room tonight.)

Now that you're all set up all that's left to do is wait.  Study up on who's who over at the CBS Big Brother site so that you're familiar with the fresh faces tonight.  And why not take a dip in the pool here by posting a comment telling us how excited (or not?) you are about the new season and new hamsters?  Tell everybody what you're looking forward to and share your thoughts with your fellow campers.
