If you’re reading this, I can only assume you’re one of the many brave individuals watching Big Brother Season 21, and to that I say: Hello. Welcome. This is a safe space for your Big Brother Emotions™.
Obviously, every cast member this season is VERY IMPORTANT, but today we’re here to learn a little more about Jack Matthews, a man who’s been causing a ton of controversy, both on and off your poor, long-suffering television. The drama is largely due to the fact that Jack Matthews has been caught being racist and sexist, a less-than-ideal combination in any human, let alone someone who is being filmed on a live-feed 24/7.
Jack’s awful behavior has become a whole thing, so let’s dive in and get to know this discount Jason Momoa ASAP.
^The only sensible thing this guy has ever said.
First, Jack Matthews‘ Bio
Thanks to CBS’s truly insane cast bios, we know that Jack is 28, lives in Tampa (aka the city Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello won’t stop making out in), and is a fitness trainer—which explains how swoll he is. Ironically, he thinks the word "integrity" best describes him, which HAHAHAHAHA.
Some fun facts about Jack? He can "snatch 275 lbs” (wow, cool, I’m so impressed 😐), he can wiggle his ears, he works for a media business, and he can “walk on [his] hands for quite some time.” What a catch!
Yes, He’s on Instagram
But he’s private, and honestly, thank god, because IDK that I’m ready for what’s lurking behind that Follow button. Anyway, hit him up right this way if you feel the need.
ICYMI, Jack Matthews Is SUPER Controversial
When Jack was first cast on Big Brother, everyone assumed he was a harmless Jason Momoa look-alike with great hair and a perpetually flexed bod. But things quickly changed. Thanks to the Big Brother live feeds, it soon became more than clear that Jack has no respect for women. Need proof? You got it, dude. Here he is calling two female contestants “maggots”:

And here he is using bunch of really awful derogatory and racist terms:

Jack: "in the Rice Pudding."
I EXPECT @CBSBigBrother @agrodner22 @JulieChen to discuss this RACIST comment by Jack. Do not sweep it under the rug.@TMZ @PerezHilton #BB21 pic.twitter.com/wcsUUy6EN3
He‘s Legit Obsessed With Kemi
For reasons that no one understands, Jack is incredibly and very weirdly obsessed with fellow contestant Kemi Fakunle. Live-feed watchers have been chronicling his harassment of her, so yeah, of course there are receipts.
He even said he wanted to “stomp a mudhole” through her chest.
Big Brother Is Watching Him
But not closely enough. Jack admitted that CBS producers were aware of his behavior, and fans caught the moment on a live feed:
Jack- I just need to be careful what I say. Tommy- Someone must have told them (production) that they were uncomfortable? Jack- They saw. It's not a big deal. It was production #BB21— Big Brother Daily (@BB_Updates) July 1, 2019
The thing is, the show hasn’t followed through, and fans who want Jack kicked off are accusing the production team of protecting him by cutting moments that reveal his blatant sexism, specifically toward women of color:
the show edit is working overtime to omit the pure vitriol that jack and jackson spew every day and erase the prejudice that led up to jessica and kemi’s nominations @CBSBigBrother yall are so foul and complicit— henri🍎 (@gossifIuer) July 8, 2019
There‘s a Change.Org Petition to Boot Him From Big Brother
Almost 10,000 people have signed, lol. The petition states “Jack Matthews has said numerous racist things and has been very aggressive towards the only black woman in the Big Brother house, including saying he wants to ‘stomp a mudhole through her chest.’ He needs to be expelled for Kemi’s safety and to show that it’s not okay to be racist in 2019, especially on tv.”
Oh, and He‘s Single in Case You Care!
Technically, Jack is hooking up with Big Brother’s Analyse. Prior to the show, he was not in a relationship, or as he put it to ET Canada, “I’m married to my dog!” Great, someone better go check on that dog real quick.
