Big Jump Competition or simply The Big Jump is a seasonal competition in Pinoy Big Brother where in the eligible housemates, usually the final six, will battle out in a series of Big Jump challenges in order for them to secure a slot in the Big Four. Once a housemate wins the Big Jump, the housemate will automatically be immune from the succeeding evictions until the Big Four reached the Big Night finale.

The competition was first introduced in Pinoy Big Brother: Double Up then appeared in the following season in Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Clash 2010. It appeared again in Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Edition 4. It reappeared for the fourth time in Pinoy Big Brother: 737.

In Pinoy Big Brother 7, the Big Jump served as a different purpose. Instead of securing a slot in the Big Four for the Big Night finale, each set of eligible housemates will battle out for securing a slot in their edition's respective teams who will then be part of the final chapter of the series which is the Dream Team.

Eligibility

Usually, the Big Jump occurs in every penultimate week of the season where the house is usually just down to six housemates. All remaining housemates are eligible to competition.

In Pinoy Big Brother 7, a housemate must survive and become part of Lucky 7 Housemates to be eligible to compete in the Big Jump. The competition is reserved for every 1st Lucky Slot on the Lucky Stars, Lucky Suns and Lucky Houses. Once a housemate wins the Big Jump, it means the housemate will get the 1st Lucky Slot. The housemate's victory will forfeit his or her eligibility to compete further in the competitions reserved for the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Lucky Slots.

Format

The Big Jump is consisted of a series of challenge rounds, usually up to 4 rounds of challenges.

Usually, there are two formats used for the Big Jump, either an Elimination Format or a Scoring Format.

Elimination Competition

For this format,the competition starts with all eligible housemates battling out for the first round. The losing housemate will be eliminated while the rest will advance into the next round. Each round, one housemate will be eliminated, until only the last housemate standing remains. The last housemate standing will be the winner.

Scoring Competition

For this format, the competition uses points. The eligible housemates will battle out on each round, who ever wins on each round gains a point. The housemate who gathered the most wins will become the Big Jump Winner.

If ever there was a tie among the housemates, they will compete again for the tie-breaker round where in the winning housemate will become the Big Jump Winner.

Game History

Pinoy Big Brother: Double Up

Pinoy Big Brother: Double Up - Big Jump History

The first ever Big Jump was introduced to the housemates on Week 17. The housemates were divided into two teams for the challenge that would determine whose team will participate in the Big Jump. Eventually, it was Paul Jake Castillo, Melisa Cantiveros and Steve "Tibo" Jumalon's group that won, making them eligible to win the Big Jump Competition.

A day before the Big Jump, their challenge was announced, and Big Brother told them it was an Endurance Game. It means who ever stays the longest will win. They were given the time to exercise and prepare for such competition.

On the day of the Big Jump, the housemates woke up seeing three pedestals in the middle of the swimming pool. It would be the platform where the players will stand for as long as they could.

PBBDU Big Jump

After the first three hours have passed, Big Brother finally announced the succeeding rounds. The second round was they weren't allowed to sit anymore. Then after another three hours, the third round was given. From that point, they should only stand on one foot.

8 hours have passed and they were still standing in the middle of night and Big Brother gave them a meditation sound. Still, no one had given up.

On the 10th hour, they are now only have to use the other foot and they shouldn't have any unnecessary movements. However, Paul Jake fell out of balance, causing him to fall into the pool, losing the game.

After Paul Jake's elimination, only Melisa and Tibo remained. Big Brother told them that from that point, they must spread their arms.

On the 11 hour, Tibo finally gave up on the game, making Melisa the first ever Big Jump Winner and will automatically secure a slot for the Big Night.
