Big Brother 17 Spoilers: Final Head of Household Competition – Part One Results

On the Big Brother Live Feeds late on Wednesday night, the first round of the final three-part Head of Household took place. The competition was a nasty one, with the last three Houseguests forced to hang onto ropes while seated on slippery perches as they were dipped into goo and slammed into walls repeatedly.

The Head of Household Competition did not kick off at the end of the show on Wednesday as we expected it to. Instead, we had to wait until after the taped show aired on the west coast before the endurance challenge began on the Live Feeds.

Head of Household Competition (Part One):

7:10 PM BBT: The final three Houseguests are just sitting around in front of the Memory Wall talking smack about Johnny Mac. They also do some complimenting of him as well. Liz notes how much they cheered for him when he left. Vanessa says he heard the audience say “awwwwhhhh” when he was voted out.

7:25 PM BBT and still no competition happening, although the banner keeps scrolling that it will be tonight. Liz notes that they are “still building out there” in the backyard. She and Vanessa don’t think they are going to have the HoH tonight.

8:00 PM BBT – The Live Feeds go down and we’re betting they are getting ready for the competition.

8:40 PM BBT – Feeds come back on and we have Houseguests hanging from ropes and getting goop slung over them while getting bounced off walls. Endurance competition goodness!

8:55 PM BBT – All the Houseguests still hanging in there. They are really hitting the walls HARD. Vanessa complaining they better not mess up her back.

9:11 PM BBT – Vanessa says this is a torture ride in hell. Literally Satan’s carnival. Steve asks them if they took Advil before this. They did. We would have too.

9:15 PM BBT – They get dipped in the nasty red goo again.

9:20 PM BBT – Steve looking most comfortable, making bad jokes, goofing off. Vanessa looks scared and clinging for her life. She is very quiet. Liz just looks uncomfortable. They get double dipped in the red goo. Steve jokes that he doesn’t “use his package” in reference to getting dunked in the goo.

9:24 PM BBT – Steve just slipped off his disk and down onto the ball below. The VERY slippery ball! This could cost him the competition.

9:26 PM BBT – Whew! Steve manages to scoot back onto his disk seat when they get dunked into the goo. He was lucky that happened pretty quickly.

9:30 PM BBT – They joke about their ‘packages’ being ruined by this competition. Steve jokes it’s a good thing no one wants to have sex after this. Liz yells Steve! He says “Steve, taking it one step too far for 91 days.” Yep, that’s Steve.

9:40 PM BBT – Everyone still hanging in there, literally. Everyone is rather quiet now though, just enduring the wall slamming. Going to be a lot of bruises on the players after this is over.

9:58 PM BBT – Van, Steve and Liz all still up there. Steve keeps scratching himself really hard. Hope he isn’t allergic to that red goo.

10:17 PM BBT – No one has fallen off yet, but wow they are all looking tired and so over it. They are getting dropped in the goo more and more now. Very quiet, not much banter going on. They look utterly miserable.

10:30 PM BBT – We have a real endurance competition going on here folks! All three Houseguests are still going. Vanessa keeps laughing a bit crazy now, sound like she’s kind of losing it. Liz really looks like she is in a lot of pain.

10:39 PM BBT – Liz just got crap blasted into her face and up her nose. She says it smells like paint. Vanessa thinks it smells like latex.


11:00 PM BBT – They are really working hard in this one. Everyone still up and everyone looking more and more like they are going to be dyed red for the rest of their lives. Over two hours hanging on the ropes so far.

11:30 PM BBT – Everyone still on. Vanessa says she could go another six hours. Steve says they could see the sunrise. Liz doesn’t seem to be into that whole idea. Neither are we because we’d like to sleep tonight.


11:45 PM BBT – We’re past the three hours mark and still have three Houseguests still in there. The slams are getting a bit harder and faster.

12:00 AM BBT – It’s a new day and Liz, Vanessa and Steve are still up there. Production interrupts the comp (puts us on Jeff highlights). When they come back on, the Houseguests have been forced to sit directly on the slippery balls instead of the disk seats. Much more difficult. So apparently production is not willing to wait as long as it would take otherwise. Kind of lame.


12:15 AM BBT – Three and a half hours later and now Steve is looking not so happy at all. Vanessa got chatty again suddenly but mostly they’ve been pretty quiet for a while. Everyone looks very uncomfortable sitting directly on the ball now with the seat disks now up in their faces.


12:18 AM BBT – Steve loses a shoe and seems to set him off balance as he squirms around and… he falls off! Steve is out! Wow, he really looked like he might take the win on this earlier. Can’t help but wonder if CBS Big Brother hadn’t changed the rules and made them move to the balls if Steve would have hung on longer. We could possibly see Vanessa somehow convince Liz to take a fall next.


12:20 AM BBT – Vanessa starts working on Liz to try to make some kind of deal so Liz will drop off. Liz says “sorry” and rejects her. Steve is shivering very hard on the sidelines.

Big Brother 17 3

12:28 AM BBT – Vanessa keeps picking at Liz telling her she will be better in the second round of the competition, so she should just drop now. Vanessa says she can go another 10 hours and she is not going to “quit this shit.” She starts yelling at Liz that if she wants to ruin herself for round two, go ahead, but she is not going to drop. She says she has no f*cking shot if she loses the first round and she’s not going to drop. She won’t stop harassing Liz.

12:31 PM BBT – Liz gives up and drops off! That’s it, Vanessa has won the first round of the final Head of Household Competition. She will get to skip the second round and will battle the winner of that round in the final round.


That’s a wrap!
