What The Bleep? is a recurring Head of Household competition.


Houseguests stand in a booth and listen to a clip of a houseguest saying something they have previously said in the house. One word or phrase is bleeped out, however. The houseguests competing must say if the word or phrase given to them as a possibility of being the bleeped word is true or false. If they get it right, they get a point. If not, they do not.

The houseguest that gets the most points at the end of the competition wins the HoH.


The competition first appeared on Big Brother 16 (US) during that season's second double eviction. Derrick Levasseur notably won this competition in just one question.

The following season, Big Brother 17 (US), eventual winner Steve Moses won the competition, securing himself a spot in the final three.

The following season, Big Brother 18 (US), Paul Abrahamian won the competition after a tiebreaker with Nicole Franzel, becoming the first member of the final three.

The following season Big Brother 19 (US), Paul Abrahamian won the competition and earned his spot in the final three for the second time. He won it with seven points.

The following season Big Brother 20 (US), JC Mounduix got his first win of the season through the competition and secured his spot in the final three.
