Pooch–Backstage Boss (He heads upstairs)
Time for the competition to begin. The winner in each group will compete against each other and then that winner will become HOH.
Pooch will not be competing tonight due to the Backstage Boss pass.
Group 1: The Porta-Potties
This group is in actual porta-potties wearing goggles. They listen to, er, potty conversations and have to guess which word was used the most.

Paloma is eliminated for answering last. Everyone got it correct.
Answer 2: Two
They all got it correct, but Jasmine is eliminated for answering last.
Answer 3: one
Nicole got it wrong and is eliminated.
Answer 4: Three

Monte is in the next round of competition
Group 2: Piercing Panic
They must place jewelry on their faces by following a picture. The winner moves to the next round.
Group 3: Merch
They must hang on to a t-shirt in midair. The last one standing….er hanging, wins!
The HOH Comp!
The three must unpack and assemble a drum set. The one who does it correctly in the shortest amount of time wins.
Daniel wins HOH!
Pooch will not be participating in anything this week and is safe from elimination. He will next compete in the second HOH comp. He also has the power to choose three other houseguests to be backstage. They will not be competing, but will still be eligible for elimination.
Pooch decides to choose Paloma, Alyssa and Brittany, mostly based on how they ranked in their games—or eliminated first in their respective games.
More Sunday, stay tuned!
