Slippery Slope is a recurring Head of Household, Have/Have-Not, and Power of Veto competition.


Starting at a large tube of some liquid and using a scooper, transfer it down the end of your slippery, icy lane and dump it in a container that will eventually accumulate to retrieve a ball. Getting the ball secures the victory, winning the competition.

Usually, there are two containers at the end of the lane. The bigger one is for the HoH and the smaller one is for an advantage in either the game or for yourself.
