The Spelling Search is a recurring Power of Veto competition.
In this competition, houseguests look through an area for letters. One at a time, they must bring them back to their board. Once brought back to their board, they must spell a word out and try to achieve the longest, correctly spelled word, which will be revealed one at a time. Since Big Brother 17 each letter was assigned a point value, so instead of the longest word the contestants need to come up with a word with the highest point value.
If there is a tie, the houseguest who did it the quickest will win.
