Caged Eggs is a recurring Head of Household, Power of Veto and Field Trip competition.


Houseguests are located on one side of the wired fence and there is a pile of fragile objects, usually eggs, next to the fence on the other side. Houseguests need to maneuver those eggs one by one to a certain destination while using their fingers. The first player to do so wins the competition.

On Big Brother 18 after maneuvering the egg instead of placing the egg to its slot houseguests needed to roll their eggs down the plank with the aim of knocking down three letters H, O, and H.
