Jared Fields Responds to 'Big Brother' Negative Backlash
The evicted houseguest is taking full responsibility for his actions.
Jared Fields may be out of the Big Brother house, but first, he's owning up to his behavior in the game.
The evicted houseguest came onto the show with a tricky situation as his mother, legendary Survivor player and The Traitors winner Cirie Fields, was the surprise bonus contestant at the beginning of the season.
"I had to try my best to try to separate my relationship with her from the rest of the house. We're not your average mom and son. I talk to her about five times a day Monday through Sunday. It's really crazy, but we had to do it," Fields tells PRIDE.
While navigating his way throughout the game, Fields found himself in some hot water when he used the R-word slur on the show's live feeds.
Earlier in the season, fellow season 25 houseguest Luke Valentine was removed from the show when he was caught using the N-word racial slur, which violates Big Brother's code of conduct.
Fans were quick to call for Fields' ejection as well, but production ultimately just gave him a warning and didn't remove him from the game.
"At the end of the day, people are valid to feel however they want to feel, whether it was good or whether it was bad. When I went into this house, I was making myself public property. People can only say bad things about you if you give them bad things to say. You gotta take accountability and responsibility for the things that you gave people."
Fields is hoping the public will forgive him for his poor choice of words now that he's taken the time to reflect on his choices in the game.
"I understand that I'm a human. I understand that I made mistakes. If you guys are willing to even give me another chance, just know that I'm trying to get better."
Now that he'll be watching the show with America at home, Fields is understandably rooting for his mom to make it all the way to the end and secure the win.
"I think me being there hindered her game a lot just because she couldn't help but be a mom in there. Now that she doesn't have to worry about being a mom to that extent, she [can] flip the Cirie switch on and she's going to start playing real cutthroat. I know for sure she's going to make it really far and hopefully she'll take the bag home!"
