Big Brother 17: When Are Final HoH Competitions Held?

The Final Head of Household of Big Brother 17 holds the critical power of deciding which of this season’s Final 3 will move on to finale night’s F2 and stand before the Jury to await a half-million dollar reward. We’re not there yet, but we’re close.

Update: Round 2 is underway as of 7:50 PM BBT 9/18. Results in a few hours.

So how does the rest of the Final HoH series of competitions go down and when can we expect more results? Let’s take a look.

Round 1 is over after a nearly four-hour long endurance competition gave Vanessa the first win when Steve slipped and Liz gave up her chance to a pleading Vanessa. Knucklehead. Now Liz and Steve will step back in to the HoH arena for the chance to win a seat at the last round.

Round 2 will be held in the next few days. Last season it was done on Friday night while the year before that it was Saturday night. Both years the results didn’t come in until 10PM PT as Big Brother may have wanted all the footage shot in the dark. I think that’s likely to happen again this year too, but as for what day, well the HGs just noted they could still hear construction noises in the backyard. It’s been on lockdown since Wednesday night so that’s been a lot of work and looking back to the last few R2 comps, it makes sense. These comps are massive.

Past two years we’ve had those massive wall climb themes with underwater and pyramids. Both looked awesome and imposing challenges so I can’t wait to see what this year brings.

The goal in BB15’s R2 was to order the season’s 14 evictions while BB16 required double the knowledge with ordering the final nominees of the week. The latter is more difficult, but not impossible and I’m sure Steve knows to study that. But since things have changed the past two rounds I’d expect a different topic this year too.

Steve and Liz have been studying hard to be ready and we even saw Steve help Liz study last night too. They’ll keep going over events and dates until it’s go time because what else do they have to do?? We’ll watch for the competition to begin and once that happens we’ll be sitting anxiously by our Feeds to discover the results.

Once Round 2 is over the wait goes on. Round 3 won’t be held until Wednesday’s live finale on September 23, 2015 at 9:30PM ET. Then the winners of the first two competitions will face off in Round 3 which is likely to be Jury questions with A/B questions. The winner there will decide which of the F3 to cut and who will join him or her in the F2.
