Big Brother Wiki

Knight Moves (also known as Turnover) is a recurring Power of Veto, Battle of the Block and Head of Household competition.


Houseguests all pick a tile to start on and flip it over. They must then take one step in any direction and flip over the tile. That tile is out of play and houseguests cannot step on that tile ever again. Houseguests continue until they can no longer take a step in any direction. When that occurs, the houseguest is out of the competition.

This process continues until one person is left standing. That person wins the competition.


The competition first appeared on Big Brother 3. Houseguest Chiara Jude Berti won the competition, winning her first PoV of the summer.

The competition reappeared on Big Brother 6. Houseguest James Rhine won the competition, winning his second PoV of the season via HoH Kaysar Ridha's plan. James' win led to an iconic moment in Big Brother history, when Kaysar informed nominee, and eventual season winner, Maggie Ausburn that James winning didn't seal her fate, but rather her partner's fate.

Reappearing on Big Brother 16, the competition was now a Battle of the Block competition. Houseguests Amber Borzotra and Jocasta Odom won the competition, meaning they were safe for the week.

Due to his legacy with this competition, Kaysar returned to host it after his eviction on Big Brother 22, where it was used as a Head of Household competition, won by Enzo Palumbo.
