Majority Rules is a recurring Head of Household competition.


This competition is played quiz-style:

  1. Each round, Julie will give the houseguests a superlative and the names of two houseguests.
  2. The houseguests must not choose with houseguest they think best fits the description, but who they think the majority of the house thinks best fits the description.
  3. After all houseguests have locked in an answer, those who voted with the majority remain in the game, while those who voted with the minority are eliminated. In the event of a tie, nobody is eliminated.
  4. The game continues until either Julie runs out of questions or there are only two houseguests left. In either case, a tiebreaker question is then used to determine the new Head of Household.
