I have a terrible memory for past comps but I love watching the endurance comps on the livefeeds.
I like the simple comps where it doesn't matter if you are male/female, strong/weak, tall/short, etc. Comps where everyone has a chance to win!
The Steel Cage Match in season 4 where they had to just stand in the cage and every so often they moved to a smaller cage Pressure Cooker in season 6 Bunny Hop in season 8 I Have a Secret in season 5 where they just stood on a box holding their finger on the button on the full size cut out of themselves Knight Moves comp in season 6 Grave Mistakes in season 7 where they had to lay in the graves and were offered prizes and punishments for points
I don't like the wall comps...was fun the first time but they repeat it every year now. Same with OTEV comp. Fun the first couple of times but it is getting old now.
I miss all the food comps where they would have to win the groceries for the week.
I wish that we would have been able to see how that volcano final 3 comp would have played out if Boogie hadn't jumped down making Janelle lose concentration and take her hand off the key leaving Erica the winner before the TV show even went off.
The one in season 10 where they had to match the socks and Renny was screeching incoherently the whole time.
The "sliding" one is fun because of watching all the falls.
But I think the one I have laughed the most at, and I still go back and watch it sometimes, is in BB12 when they were in teams and had to be in the "police car" going through the obstacle course, and it was Ragan, Kristen, and Kathy, and they were going soooooo slow. And Ragan's narration in the DR saying it was like Weekend at Bernie's. I still crack up.
Heath Luman posted this on twitter yesterday. I wonder what "Classic" comps he might bring back? Maybe with it being the 20th season they might use comps from previous seasons. There were lots of good comps during seasons 2-9 that they have not repeated.
I actually have a couple “Classics” from the single digit B.B. archives I’m considering...we’ll see...
Twists I liked: The Twin Twist in BB5 (didn't like that they repeated it in BB17) The Secret Pairs Twist in BB6 - I liked that everyone was involved in the twist and not just a select few. Coup d'État in BB7 - I liked how they had to solve a riddle to win the power. Everyone had an opportunity to win it. Unlike in BB11 where Jeff had the public vote give it to him.
Did not like: Battle of the Block in BB16 Care Packages voted by the public in BBOTT
Susan - I agree I like when there's a riddle or something that everyone has a chance at. The one in BB10 when Dan got to meet with a juror.
And I also liked the one in 18 where they had the clues to get the code to punch in on the phone and get to the hidden Paris room. Although, maybe that goes more along with the competition, because I didn't like the twist of a returning houseguest but the hunt to figure out the clues was fun to watch.
