Ligtask Challenge is a portmanteau of the Filipino word Ligtas which means safety or safe in English and the word task.
Originally called as the Ligtask Games, it was first introduced in Pinoy Big Brother 2 as an immunity competition where in all housemates including the nominees compete every week for a chance to get an immunity for the next week's nominations. The winner will be spared from the upcoming nomination. If ever the winner was a nominee of the current week, the immunity power will take effect on the following week, but if he/she got evicted that week, the immunity power will be passed on to the runner up of the Ligtask Games.
The competition made a short return in Pinoy Big Brother: All In as part of various nomination challenges twist, where it was called InstaSave giving a housemate a chance to remove himself/herself from the week's Set of Nominees.
It fully returned as a veto competition in Pinoy Big Brother: 737 now called as Ligtask Challenge wherein nominated housemates will compete every week and who ever wins will be removed from the nominations list and be spared from the upcoming eviction. However, if two housemates tied in the challenge, none will be spared.
In Pinoy Big Brother 7, the Ligtask Competition was brought back for two purposes, it served as an Eviction Competition and a Veto Competition. But it was mostly used as an Eviction Competition throughout the series. Instead of a public vote, the Ligtask Competition will determine who will be evicted until the housemates are down to 7. Nominated Housemates must compete against each other in order to save themselves from getting evicted. Who ever performed poorly will be evicted.
When the Lucky 7 housemates are formed, it will only be the time when the public vote would come into play for eviction, with the Ligtask returning back to its original role as a veto competition among the nominees.
The Ligtask Challenge was brought back in Pinoy Big Brother 8 in the form of "Big Celebr8ty Challenge" where various celebrities would participate in the challenges as distractions on the housemates' focus and presence of mind. And for the first time after 11 years, the Ligtask is once again used as an Immunity Competition. Every week, the housemates would compete in pairs and the winning pair would receive immunity from the upcoming nominations.
