A few times a season we’ll see the HGs get an advance preview of the HoH comp so they’re not completely caught off guard during the live show. It’s fairly common with the skill slash chance comps.
It’s not entirely chance because you’ve got to aim and get your hit right, but sometimes there’s a spinning wheel and bouncing at the end that takes away a lot of control. We won’t know what the HGs truly face until Thursday’s live show.
Flashback on your Live Feeds to 6:23 PM BBT 8/2 all cams (get the Free Trial) as the HGs have arrived in the previously locked down backyard. They’re standing on a large, angled platform as Paul reads the instructions. All Houseguests are instructed to practice, but that’s standard fare and we already know from EP Allison Grodner that Paul won’t be competing even if the Halting Hex is used (and it will be).
HGs each get ten practice swings to hit a large ball down the ramp aiming to hit the milk carton at the bottom. There are blocks along the way that they can move around to suit the fancy. HGs are encouraged to try straight shots, banked shots, leaping aerial shots, and all that.
You can skip through and see how they all did, but it’s hard to compare this to the final product. Mark mentioned Raven got 3 of her shots, Cody might have had 2, and a few other HGs got 1 each. There may have been more to go at that point, so don’t get too worked up about who could win just yet.
Who do you think can pull off a putting comp like this? Share your thoughts below after you check out the pics from the BB19 Feeds:
