Of the paranormal investigators featured in Ghost Hunters International, Robb Demarest is the most silent one. Robb, who starred as the co-host of the series, was one of the few constant appearances in the series. He and Barry Fitzgerald were the only two investigators who appeared in most of the episodes of the series. In complete contrast to his bulky frame, Robb has a quiet voice and prefers to keep to himself. Unlike most of his cast members, Robb doesn’t make appearances in other events organized by the Ghost Hunters. In this article, we will take a closer look at what little is known about Robb Demarest.
Secrets all around:
Robe Demarest was never the one to give interviews. As a result, very little is known about Robb’s early life. Details on his birth, parents, and siblings are a complete mystery. Rob is also not a huge fan of social media and doesn’t like people snooping on him. In a rare interview with masslive.com, Rob revealed his disdain for the medium.
“I actually took down my Twitter. I never really understood it. Sorry Twitter fans! I tend to pass on a lot of interviews too. There are only so many times you can answer what got you started in the field and what your scariest experience was. I think I tend to stay (generally) low profile because I hate the drama that goes along with being in the public eye.”
Robb also revealed that he was completely different from his on-screen persona. The big man is not a huge fan of reality TV and is not comfortable in front of a camera. For all his fame, Robb is not interested in reality TV and wants to focus on his career as a ghost hunter.
A martial artist:
In the same interview, Robb revealed that he had practiced every martial art under the sun. A huge fan of Aikido and TKD, Robb’s expertise extends to Muy Thai, BJJ, and Judo. Robb believes that martial arts help him to remain calm during investigations.
Blames of assault and cheating:
In his short time in the spotlight, Robb had to burden his fair share of controversies. Robb was accused of assault by his ex-girlfriend Jackie Sydney. She blamed Robb for being a womanizer, a cheater, and a manipulator. Jackie also claimed that Rob had forced himself on her. The website is entitled robbdemarestcheats.com and presents stories from Jackie’s side. While Rob did admit to cheating in 2018, he denied the claims of rape. Rob reached out to the reporter who had published the initial story and clarified his part of the story with evidence. As a result, the story was pulled and Robb was freed of charges of rape. One the other hand, Jackie has gone completely silent after new evidence came to light.
Quitting the show:
Up until the second season of Ghost Hunters International, Robb had made appearances in every single episode. But after the season two finale, Robb was left out of the main cast and Barry was promoted to the role of the lead investigator. Apart from a few vague comments here and there, neither Robb nor the producers thought to explain’s Robb dismissal.
