Big Brother 15 skill competition

The BB15 Houseguests were presented with their next Head of Household competition last night for a chance to practice and prepare ahead of Thursday night’s eviction show.

There are a few typical HoH comps we’re used to seeing: endurance, Q&A, and skill. When there’s a skill competition Big Brother usually prepares a rough mock-up of the challenge the night before in the backyard for the HGs to practice. This lets the HGs know what’s coming and get used to it while helping production avoid a complete cluster disaster of “wait, how does this work” on live television.

This week’s skill challenge involves a ramp and a revolving area filled with buckets. The HGs have to roll their croquet sized balls down the ramp while dodging obstacles in its path. Below the ramp is the revolving base requiring just the right timing for HGs to land the ball in a bucket.

Competitions tend to vary at least a little from what they practice as they’re typically far more dressed up and often changed for where they’ll aim or what’s required to score points. So what we’re seeing here is likely different from what we’ll watch on the show.

To watch the Big Brother HGs practice you can Flashback to 8:45PM BBT Wednesday. Everyone was taking turns and most were occasionally getting close. It’s tough to tell from these rounds just who will do well and who will choke under the pressure.

This competition should be a good chance to make it anyone’s game for who will take control next. Which HG do you think could do the best in this challenge?
