Perfect Shot is a recurring Head of Household competition.

Rules

Perfect Shot has been played with different rules across the multiple times it's been used.

On Big Brother 18, it worked as follows:

  1. Each houseguest is given two balls: one yellow and one red. Everyone is also given an identical station consisting of a long, narrow, and curved platform with several numbered slots of ascending value beneath it and a small box at the very end of the track.
  2. The goal of the competition is to successfully roll the ball down the track and get it into the box at the end, i.e. make the "perfect shot".
  3. The yellow ball is intended to be used as a practice ball to let the houseguests figure out how to make the perfect shot. They can roll the yellow ball down the track as many times as they like.
  4. Once they are confident they can make the shot, the houseguests can take their red ball and roll it down the track. The houseguests are only allowed to take one shot with the red ball.
  5. The first person to get their red ball into the box wins Head of Household. If everyone takes a shot with the red ball and misses the box, the first person to get their ball in the slot with the highest numerical value wins Head of Household.

On Big Brother: Over The Top and Big Brother 19, it worked as follows:

  1. There is only one track and one box for all the houseguests to use this time (In Big Brother 19, there was an option of 3 tracks, all leading to a hole in the center of the course).
  2. Plastic balls containing tokens are dumped into the backyard. The houseguests have to search through these balls for tokens that can be redeemed for balls.
  3. A houseguest can redeem a token to receive a ball to make a shot. They can redeem a maximum of 3 tokens at one time to make 3 shots.
  4. If a houseguest is currently making their shot(s), the other houseguests must wait in line for their turn to redeem their tokens and make their shot(s).
  5. Houseguests are allowed to work together by giving tokens to one another and allowing one another to cut in line.
  6. The first houseguest to successfully get a ball in the box wins Head of Household.

On Big Brother 20, both challenge types were combined into one:

  1. There is only one track and one box for all the houseguests to use this time.
  2. Plastic balls containing tokens are in pools throughout the backyard. The houseguests have to search through these balls for tokens that can be redeemed for balls.
  3. A houseguest can redeem a token to receive a ball to make a shot.
  4. If a houseguest is currently making their shot(s), the other houseguests must wait in line for their turn to redeem their tokens and make their shot(s).
  5. Houseguests are allowed to work together by giving tokens to one another and allowing one another to cut in line.
  6. The first person to get their red ball into the box wins Head of Household. If an hour has passed without anyone making a Perfect Shot, the first person to get their ball in the slot with the highest numerical value wins Head of Household. However, if a person does not get their ball into the red slot, they can cancel their score and try again to receive a higher one/make a Perfect Shot.
