Big Brother Wiki

Ligtask Challenge is a major safety competition in Pinoy Big Brother.

Throughout the years, the Ligtask had various uses and has been used as an immunity competition, a nomination competition, a veto competition and an eviction competition.

The Name[]

Ligtask Challenge is a portmanteau of the Filipino word Ligtas which means safety or safe in English and the word task.


Originally called the Ligtask Games, it was first introduced in Pinoy Big Brother 2 as an immunity competition where all housemates including the nominees competed every week for a chance to get immunity for the following week's nominations, with the winner, becoming immune from the nominations. Since the immunity power would take effect on the following, if the winner was a nominee of the current week and got evicted, the immunity would be passed on to the runner-up of the Ligtask Games.

The competition made a short return in Pinoy Big Brother: All In and was renamed as InstaSave, giving a housemate the chance to remove himself/herself from the week's set of Nominees. However, this challenge was used to veto a nominee instead of an immunity challenge.

It fully returned as a weekly veto competition in Pinoy Big Brother: 737, now officially called as the Ligtask Challenge wherein nominated housemates would compete every week to remove themselves from the nominations list. However, if two housemates tied in the challenge, none would be spared.

In Pinoy Big Brother: Lucky 7, the Ligtask was brought back and had two uses as it both served as an Eviction Challenge and a Veto Challenge. However, it was mostly used as the eviction process throughout the series. Due to the four-part season's format, the batches would begin with an Eviction Ligtask as the main eviction process until seven housemates remained. When the "Lucky 7" housemates were formed, the Eviction Ligtask would be replaced by a Veto Ligtask, and the eviction process would revert to the classic public voting.

The Ligtask Challenge was brought back in Pinoy Big Brother: Otso. For the first time after 11 years, the Ligtask was once again used as an Immunity Competition during Batch 1. Every week, the housemates would compete in pairs and the winning pair would receive immunity from the upcoming nominations. During Batches 2 and 3, the Nomination Ligtask variant was mostly used, with the Batch 3 in particular, renaming it to "Golden Circle Challenge".

In Pinoy Big Brother: Connect, the ligtask challenge returned again as a veto challenge for the nominees. In Pinoy Big Brother: Kumunity Season 10's Adult Edition, the Eviction Ligtask made a short comeback as an eviction process during Week 19 of the season where the nominees must compete to save themselves from eviction, and the two nominees with the lowest score would leave the house. At the same time, the first ligtask round was also used to veto two nominations of the housemates who performed the best. However, as part of a bigger twist, the eviction ligtask during the season's Adult Edition was only used for a fake eviction.
