Yankee Swap (also known as the Prize Swapping Competition) is a recurring Power of Veto and Head of Household competition. It is unique among competitions in that the winner of the competition does not automatically win the Veto/HoH. This competition is notable for being the one that causes an unlucky houseguest to wear the BB Unitard for a week.


The players will compete in a series of rounds where they must try to score the highest number. The player with the lowest score each round will be eliminated from the game. Once they are eliminated, they must claim a prize which may contain money, vacations, advantages in the game, punishments, the power of veto, or the HOH key. The players that are eliminated in later rounds will have the option of keeping the prize that they have received or trading it for other prizes that have already been revealed. The player with the power of veto (or HOH key) in their possession at the end of the final round will win POV or HOH.
