The Battle Back Competition

BB18 Episode 15 – July 22, 2016

<–Previously, a unanimous vote sends Tiffany out

It’s almost nice to have something very easy to write about and not worry about the strategic machinations going on in the house!  Let’s just get right into this, shall we?  This episode is a compilation of the competitions that has been ongoing this season with interesting twists on the HoH Competition that just occurred that week.  Up first in Round 1?
