Big Brother Wiki

Wildcard Competition is a competition that was introduced in Big Brother 23. The three teams that are not immune for the week will each select one competitor. Those three houseguests will then compete for immunity; if they win, they will be given the option to take safety, while the rest of their team remains vulnerable for nomination and eviction. Similar to the Den of Temptation, if the winner decides to accept safety for the week, it will result in a punishment that may affect them, their team, or the entire house.

This twist lasted for the first four weeks of that season.
