The houseguests are asked a series of questions about events that occur in the house. They must decide whether one event occurred before or after another event.
As in majority of quiz-based competitions this competition can be held one of two different ways. A point-based way is when each correct answer gives a point and the player with the most points wins. Another way is elimination-based in which a player gets eliminated after their first wrong answer unless all remaining players answer incorrectly as well.
In the event of a tie there is a tie-breaker question with a numeric answer and the person closest to the correct answer without going over wins.
The competition once again appeared on Big Brother 13, during the first double eviction of the summer, back as a Head of Household competition. Kalia Booker barely beat Jordan Lloyd, allowing her to send her showmance home.
The competition once again appeared the next season, Big Brother 15, during the third double eviction of the season. Eventual winner Andy Herren beat out GinaMarie Zimmerman and McCrae Olson, achieving his second Head of Household reign.
