This article presents a comparison between two new censored regression models which are extended from some continuous distribution with the Burr-XII system. The two models are the Log-BXII Weibull model(LBXIIW)  and the Log-BXII Exponentiated Exponential model(LBXIIEE). The results of the comparison showed the LBXIIW model is best than the LBXIIEE model according to the values of the model selection criteria when the Creatine is a dependent variable in the model.
