BB Fest Competitions:
Julie tells the houseguests that each station will compete in an individual challenge. The winner of each mini-competition will advance to the main stage. At the main stage, the three winners will compete for HOH. She also reveals that Pooch will not be competing in any of tonight’s competitions.
Three comps. Three winners, who will move on to the next round?

Comp 3 – Merch Stand:
- Hanging Tough is this third comp. The Houseguests have to hang on to a t-shirt raised off the ground. Last hanging on wins.
- Let’s see how this plays out. Alyssa is the first to fall. Ameerah falls next. Indy falls after Ameerah. Daniel and Michael remain. Michael falls next. Daniel wins and advances to the Main Stage.
Big Brother 24 HOH Competition
The first three comps’ winners are about to face off to be the first HOH. Monte, Turner, and Daniel will battle it out for the HOH.
The three competitors will have to complete a drum kit puzzle. The first houseguest to successfully finish their puzzle wins. The competition is close. It’s anyone’s game.
Daniel pulls out the win! He is the first Head of Household of the summer.
Backstage Boss: Julie tells Pooch he will be “backstage” all week long, meaning he won’t be competing in any comps and he cannot vote come eviction night, but he is safe for the week.
But there’s one more thing, Julie reveals the Backstage Boss pass comes with a unique power. Pooch can pick three houseguests to send backstage. The houseguests Pooch chooses cannot compete or vote on eviction night, but they can be sent home.
Pooch says he picks Paloma and Alyssa because they were the first out in their respective comps. Then since the second comp with jewelry didn’t have a “first out” he just picked Brittany because she “stood out.”
