Following last night’s live eviction show the remaining Big Brother 17 Houseguests faced a new endurance competition to decide the next Head of Household competition.

Yes, CBS gave us two endurance comps back to back and I couldn’t be happier about this! The Houseguests suspected it would be a Double Eviction, but it wasn’t so instead they’ll face another brutal challenge instead of a Q&A competition. After this Thursday’s incredible fight between Vanessa, Clay, James, Shelli, John, and just about anyone else who get in her way the pressure will be on.

There wasn’t time to show all of this competition in Thursday’s episode so CBS was airing it online exclusively through their All Access video service. Grab a Free Trial now and watch with us!

Big Brother 17 – Week 7 Head of Household – ‘Midway Mayhem’:
Houseguests must traverse a slippery lane to fill a bowl at the other end. They can go for the HoH prize, $5K, or a Never-Have-Not pass. Once someone gets the HoH prize though it’s all over. So if you’re far ahead you can get all 3. Nice.
