Julie tells everyone to get in their gear and head to the backyard. They are all about to battle the first week of the game. The winner will have the ability to keep eight houseguests safe including themselves while putting eight houseguests in jeopardy. Two groups of eight houseguests are standing on platforms, the first eight fall into the water in pitch blackness, the other eight are dangling from ropes.
Julie speaks to eight that are in the water, hidden are seven folders and they have to bring them to the revealed room. Six folders have the word ESCAPE on it and one has ESCAPE AND PLAY, it is the winning folder and they will get to compete to reprogram the game. The one person who doesn’t find a folder will receive a punishment. Tyler found an escape folder and goes back into the house. Bayleigh and Brett find an escape folder each and also returns to the house.
Angela won the ESCAPE AND PLAY, Kaycee didn’t find a folder and will receive a punishment.
Meanwhile the other eight houseguests are hanging and they have to prove they are not robots by searching the letter blocks below them to spell the word HOUSEGUEST. The first to do it will advance to compete with the person who won the other challenge. The loser will receive a punishment. Swaggy C won the competition, Samantha lost.
Bayleigh tells Swaggy C that he needs to keep a low profile and calm down the beast. Swaggy C and Angela talk, she tells him that she wants to keep her original eight. Swaggy C is furious, now he wants to beat her and vote her out. On to the final part of the competition, there are two surf boards ten feet in the air and each of them have to stay on them.
There are obstacles coming at them from all points and they have to duck and sway to avoid them, its anyone’s game. Swaggy C won the competition and he gets to decide everyone’s fate. The houseguest came into the house in four groups of four, Swaggy C gets to decide which 2 groups are safe and which two are not. Everyone in the house is vying for Swaggy C’s attention, they all want their safety. Kaycee comes out of a room and she is dressed in a pinwheel unitard. All of a sudden a robot comes into the house and the robot is Sam.
Julie calls everyone into the living room. Julie tells Kaycee that when her pinwheel starts to spin that is hung over her neck she must stay in the room she is in until it stops and could affect her social game. Sam is officially robot and every time she hears the words robot offline, she will go in the diary room and return a human, every time she hears the words robot online, she will go in the diary room and return a robot. The punishments will last until the first eviction.
Time for Swaggy C to make his choice. The first group he saves Rockstar, Brett, Rachel and Swaggy C. The second group is Scotty, Haleigh, Kaycee and Faysal. One of the other eight houseguest will be going home in the live eviction as they are not safe.
