The last three HGs on Big Brother 19 are battling it out for the Final HoH, a three-part competition that will result in a live part 3 on finale night. This format has been the same since season 2, which gives us 17 seasons of information. I've already looked at the history of winning part 1, but now it's time to look at part 2.

SPOILER WARNING: This article contains Big Brother 19 spoilers.

Paul won part 1 of the Final HoH.

Josh won part 2 of the Final HoH.

Winning the Game

Josh is in a great position because the winner of part 2 has gone on to win the entire game 11 out of 17 times, including the last five seasons in a row with Nicole, Steve, Derrick, Andy and Ian.

Even more impressively, an astonishing 15 of the part 2 winners went on to the Final 2. The only exceptions are season 3's Jason Guy and season 6's Janelle Pierzina. So the odds of Josh sitting there on finale night are high.

Winning Part 3

The bad news for Josh is that the person who wins part 2 has only gone on to win part 3 six times: season 7's Mike "Boogie" Malin, season 8's Evel Dick Donato, season 11's Jordan Lloyd, season 14's Ian Terry, season 15's Andy Herren and season 17's Steve Moses. But as you may have noticed, every one of them went on to win the game.

Not Winning Part 1 or Part 2

As for Christmas, she's in the absolute worst position by failing to win either of the first two parts. There have only been five HGs who failed to win any part of the Final HoH and still make it to the Final 2: season 3's Danielle Reyes, season 6's Maggie Ausburn, season 8's Daniele Donato, season 11's Natalie Martinez and season 17's Liz Nolan. It's interesting that they are all women and Maggie is the only person to win the game without winning any part of the Final HoH.
