The 24-hour Rule is a twist first introduced in Pinoy Big Brother 1 where in a housemate will be given a chance to temporarily leave the house for important reasons within a 24-hour limit.

A housemate's time outside the house must not exceed for over 24 hours. If they exceeded the time limit, they usually face instant elimination as a punishment.

This rule is often implemented whenever a housemate needs serious medical attention and has to be rushed into the hospital. Although given the chance to leave the house, the leaving housemate will be accompanied by the staff and will be blindfolded throughout the travel to their destination.
