Last night in the Big Brother house the remaining three houseguests competed in the first of a three-part Head of Household competition to decide which HG is guaranteed a seat at the final two and gets to pick which HG is the last to be evicted. This multi-part battle is a critical race to the finish line for the season.
Now that the first round is over we can discuss what’s left to go in the countdown as we prepare to crown the season winner in just a few more days.
There should be little surprise that GinaMarie pulled out the win last night in the endurance competition. Had it been an older style “sit still and keep your hand on the button/key/etc” then I think that comp could have lasted a lot, lot longer. Instead the HGs were on skates and were dragged around in a circle until they fell one by one.
GinaMarie has a strong track record in physical endurance comps and this was right up her alley. Had McCrae survived the eviction and Spencer or Andy somehow left instead then I think we could have seen this one really drag out instead of ending in probably less than 30 mins. (We don’t know the exact time the comp started, but we watched for about 17 mins before it ended.)
With Round 1 out of the way there are two more to go. Round 2 will be held this weekend, probably on Saturday. Round 3 will be live on Wednesday’s season finale starting at 9:30PM ET/PT.
When Round 2 arrives we will not be able to watch it on the Live Feeds, but we will soon discover who won when it’s over. Spencer and Andy will face off in a skill based challenge. In the past these have physical competitions and are rarely “easy.” I don’t see a huge advantage for either of these HGs as neither have been a physical dominator.
Whichever HG wins Round 2 will then move on to Round 3. The loser in Round 2 will have to sit on the couch and watch his fate decided by the other two players. Whoever wins Round 3 next Wednesday will have the choice to evict one of the other two HGs and then those two will face the Jury together on.
