The Big Brother 25 twist has a mother and son duo playing the game.
Jared Fields was introduced as the son of the Survivor legend of Cirie Fields.
And when the Big Brother 2023 season began, Jared appeared to be playing the game alone.
But at the end of the season premiere, Cirie was revealed as the 17th houseguest.
Since then, Cirie and Jared have secretly been keeping each other safe.
Izzy Gleicher knew about the family relationship, but she took that secret home after she got evicted.
Is Jared helping or hurting Cirie on Big Brother 25?
Big Brother fans have debated whether or not Cirie would be doing better without her son in the house.
Several times, Cirie has had to clean up messes that Jared created, possibly putting her own game at risk.
But having someone she can count on is an advantage to the game.
Red Utley even called the show “rigged” for Cirie to win the $750,000 prize.
On the other side of the coin, Cirie hasn’t won a single challenge on Big Brother 25.
Cirie may have only survived due to Jared winning two HOH Competitions.
Julie Chen Moonves weighs in on Jared and Cirie’s situation
Big Brother host Julie Chen Moonves stopped by for a new Watch What Happens Live episode on Bravo.
During her segment, host Andy Cohen asked Julie a fan question about Jared and Cirie.
“Julie, do you think Cirie’s son Jared’s gameplay is helping or hurting Cirie?” Andy asked.
Julie stated that Jared is helping this week because he wins challenges. By becoming HOH again, Jared likely kept Cirie from being nominated.
“If he could win more challenges and stop talking….” Julie elaborated to some laughter from the audience.
Below is a video showing Julie answering that question.
But with a Double Eviction coming up, Cirie may need to win a challenge to save the Fields family.
Spoilers from the Big Brother live feeds reveal the targets for the second eviction that night.
