‘Big Brother 21’ spoilers: Final Head of Household competition Part 1 winner is …

Soon after the end of the live episode of “Big Brother” on Thursday, Part 1 of the Final Head of Household competition of season 21 took place. It pitted the Final 3 remaining houseguests — Holly Allen, Nicole Anthony and Jackson Michie — against each other for the two places in the final. We’ve been keeping a close eye on the live feeds and have the spoilers as to who won Part 1 and is guaranteed a chance to fight for a place in the Final 2 on #BB21.

Traditionally, the first leg of the three-part HOH contest is an endurance contest. However this year producers made it a treasure hunt that combined physical and mental agility. That type of challenge is usually reserved for Part 2. The winner of Part 1 was Jackson. Had it been a test of endurance, he’d planned to throw the competition to Holly had Nicole dropped out first.

With his win of Part 1, Jackson now moves on to Part 3, which will take place live on the “Big Brother” final next Wednesday (September 25). This means Holly and Nicole will face off against each other in Part 2, which is slated to take place on Saturday (Sept. 21). The winner of that round and Jackson will then go head-to-head in Part 3. Whoever wins that will get to evict one of the remaining houseguests and take the other through to the Final 2.

There is the real chance that Nicole could win an endurance contest over Holly. This would be bad news for Jackson as Nicole could prove a far more formidable foe in Part 3. Typically, 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.
