Jury Statements (sometimes called Jury Questions, Tip The Scale, and Scales of Just Us) is a recurring Head of Household competition, usually used as the 3rd part of the Final HOH competition of the season. Thus, it is used to determine who the Final HOH of the season is, securing them a spot in the Final 2.


The houseguests are asked a series of questions about the Jury. Typically each question is to finish off an open-ended statement made by one of the jurors. The houseguests answer either "A" or "B" for one of possible endings. If they are right, they receive a point. This continues for all the jurors; the houseguest with the most points wins the final HoH of the season.

This competition was usually held in the living room. On seasons 15 through 17, the competition was held in the backyard on scales.

If there is a tie, then the houseguests will take out a chalkboard and be asked a question about an amount of something, whether it be time or an object. Whoever has the closest number without going over wins. If both go over, whoever has the closest number wins.

On Big Brother Canada the questions have different format and are based on the facts about jurors like order of events, days, things they did during the season etc.
