Hit The Road (sometimes called a Do or Die Competition) is an elimination challenge where the loser is either automatically evicted or nominated for an immediate vote.

It premiered during Big Brother 14. The competition put four teams against each other so that they could fight for Head of Household and to keep their status in the game. Team Britney finished in the competition first and team coach Britney Haynes chose Willie Hantz to be the first Head of Household. Team Dan finished in last, forcing team coach Dan Gheesling to evict one of his team members, he chose to evict Jodi Rollins.

During Big Brother 18, the Hit the Road competition was turned into a three-part competition that put the three remaining teams, Freakazoids, Category Four, and Big Sister, against each other to stay in the house. After all three competitions, Glenn Garcia of Freakazoids was the first person evicted from the house.

During Big Brother: Over The Top, it was dubbed the Do or Die Competition. Morgan Willett and Justin Duncan competed in it, after being nominated by HoH Jason Roy, and Justin ended up being the last person evicted after losing the competition, named "End of the Road."

During Big Brother 19, the eight houseguests not saved by Paul Abrahamian had to compete for safety. If they dropped, they received an apple and had a 50/50 chance of being deemed safe. The winner was automatically safe and joined those saved by Paul.

During Big Brother 21, the sixteen houseguests must vote for a Camp Director, who would receive unprecedented power. This houseguest would be able to banish four houseguests and make them compete in a challenge. The three winners would re-enter the game, while the loser would be the first houseguest evicted from the game.
