Rachel Lindsay Shuts Down DeMario Jackson’s Claims She Prefers White Men
Still, in the midst of all of this, he managed to make an enemy out of ex Rachel Lindsay.
Well, further managed might be the correct term, seeing as the Bachelorette previously said she never wants to see DeMario again after the Men Tell All reunion special.
There’s clearly no love lost between the Dallas lawyer and her former contestant, who was eliminated just two weeks into Season 13 after his alleged girlfriend showed up and blew up his chances.
Still, in his limited time on the show, DeMario says he could tell right away Rachel had a type.
“From the beginning you knew that she was attracted to white men,” the 30-year-old tells The E&G Podcast.
He adds, “You knew that. No disrespect, you just knew. She had that vibe.”
According to the Cali native, he wasn’t the only person who noticed this — all of the guys had a chat.
He recalls, “I said, 'They're going to have a black representative, either myself or Eric [Bigger], and they're going to have Dean [Unglert], Peter [Kraus], and Bryan [Abasolo] as the final four.’ We all caught that."
Before he was ejected from the show, the former executive recruiter thought he was going to make it far because he would’ve been “good for TV.”
“I mean it was obvious. I said, 'It's either going to be myself or Eric,’” he continues.
“It's either me, the wild and crazy black guy, or it's going to be the very spiritual, down-to-earth, positive, motivating guy. You have Dean, because he's f—king drop dead gorgeous.”
The show then posted about his controversial interview on Instagram.
Interestingly, it didn’t take too long for Rachel herself to chime in on his comments.
“Says the guy that dated Lexi,” she sniped, referring to his aforementioned former girlfriend, Lexi Thexton, who also happens to be white.
She then threw in, “DeMario never knew me and still doesn't.” Dayum!
Since word of her comment made it back to its target, he’s fired back on Twitter.
“Real recognize real, f—k the fake,” DeMo tweeted.
