‘Big Brother 19’ live feed spoilers: Final Head of Household competition Part 1 winner was …

The final Head of Household competition of “BIg Brother” 19 is underway. It pits the three remaining houseguests — Christmas Abbott, Paul Abrahamian and Josh Martinez — against each other for the two places in the final. Friday’s episode of “Big Brother” was a recap. It concluded with a clip of the start of the first part of the final HOH competition on “BB 19,” which had taken place on Thursday (Sept. 14), while the feed was down. Spoilers ahead

Part one of the three-part HOH contest saw each houseguest standing precariously on a platform designed to look like a cloud and holding onto a unicorn tail. The last person to fall off their cloud advances to part three of the final HOH competition. This test of endurance lasted about an hour.

No surprise that Paul won Part 1 and now moves on to Part 3, which will take place live on Sept. 20. This means Christmas, who was a surprising second in Part 1, and Josh are facing each other in Part 2, which is slated to take place on Saturday (Sept. 16).

UPDATED: Read the spoiler for Part 2 of the final HOH competition. The winner of this round and Paul will then go head-to-head in Part 3. Whoever wins that round gets to evict one of the remaining houseguests and take the other through to the Final 2.

Historically, Part 2 has been a combination of physical endurance and mental agility. There is the real chance that Christmas will be deemed unable to do the physical side or will play but then lose due to her injury. Either way, that would mean Josh wins Part 2. And this would be bad news for Paul as Josh could prove a far more formidable foe in Part 3.

Part 3 challenges each of the players to predict how the evicted houseguests have completed questions about their time in the house. They are given a choice of two possible answers and have to figure out which scenario is more likely.

Our exclusive “Big Brother” odds are predicting that Paul will win Part 3 of this final HoH competition.  He has indicated his preference is to then bounce Christmas from the house and face the jury with Josh. Conversely, Josh has made it clear that he doesn’t want to go up against Paul in the Final 2. Should Christmas win this final round, she will be torn as to which of her one-time allies to take through to the final showdown.
