Jeremiah Riggs aka Big Rig, was the latest contestant to be eliminated from Daisy of Love. The MMA fighter discusses his elimination, his thoughts on Daisy’s reaction to his son, his missing teeth and his new girlfriend (Marcia from Rock of Love Bus & Charm School 3) in his new interview with VH1.
Below are excerpts from this interview –
It seemed like you were really upset after being eliminated.
Yeah, I was. I ain’t gonna lie to you. It sucked, you know? I don’t really know how to explain it. I guess when you know you’re the better person, don’t no one like to just necessarily lose. I sure as f*** don’t.
Was it just a matter of losing the game, or were you upset at all about not being able to get closer to Daisy?
For the time given and spent, yeah. What can you say when you got 20 other people and you’re all trying to get her attention? You only have so much time anyways and you have to make the best of it. I believe I did that by all means. It’s just, you know…she’s gonna do what she wants to do.
It did seem that you were really into her. You said you were falling in love with her.
I was. It was real and everything. She’s a cool girl. I liked her, just the presence of her and everything. Just a really good vibe. When you’re feeling good things, why not express the way you feel?
What did you think about her reaction to you giving her the picture of your son?
Not saying that it was a bad reaction, but she’s got to understand that I’m a package deal. And I do it the same with any other girl. I got to let them know that I come with more than just a bang.
It did seem she was a little bit less gracious than she could have been.
Oh yeah, it was kind of a nasty thing. I mean, she almost came across as a bitch, if you really want to know the truth. The comment she made like, “Oh, it kind of creeped me out,” had me thinking, “Well, the creepy thing is the fact that you can’t accept real life.” I let her know about my son up front, and if she couldn’t deal with that she should have sent my ass home a long time ago. When I gave her the picture it was really a security thing, I guess, just saying, “This is my little man. Take a good look at it, because looking down the road, if I’m what you’re looking for, this is something you’re gonna have to put up with.” It was nothing like, “Hey this is my kid. I hope he wins me your heart.” I mean f*** that, I can do that myself.
What are your feelings for Daisy today? Do you have any resentment for her?
Man, I mean, I think she’s a cool ass chick. I’m not like, “Aw, that f***ing bitch did me wrong.” It sucks I didn’t get to know her a little bit more. But I’m not gonna sit her and talk s*** about her and say I resent her. That would be stupid. I wish her the best, dude. No doubt about that.
Why did you get so mad about the Fox thing?
It seemed like if you lied to her, and then you tell the truth after she busts you in a lie, you’re good. But damn it, if you tell her the f***ing truth, then it’s almost like that’s the wrong way of doing it. Hell, maybe I should have f***ing lied to her, and then later on, been like, “Yeah, I got a kid.” Maybe then she’d have been like, “Oh, he’s just a scum bag. I like that.” You’re sitting there trying to have date with her, and then all of a sudden it gets ruined by Fox and I’m just like, “F*** this.” I mean, you can’t touch nobody so I might as well break something.
I was surprised to find out via an extra that you are missing your front teeth.
A lot of people think that’s funny. I have had them gone for two or three years. A lot of people think it happened in one of my MMA fights, but it actually happened in a street fight. There were seven or eight other guys against me and a best friend, and one had gotten a hold of a pipe or something, and went to swinging and hit me across the mouth with it. And hell, it never hurt me. It just messed one of them up, but then later on, after fighting and s*** like that, it broke again, and they just started cracking off. So I just had them pulled, man, I was like, “F*** it. This is kind of my calling. Ain’t no need in getting them fixed.” It’s very entertaining. The kids love it.
Speaking of doing different things, I heard that you and Marcia (of Rock of Love Bus and Charm School) are dating. Is that true?
Did you just come to meet her from appearances or whatever?
Yeah, we just kind of met and we really just started talking. It’s just one of those things that you see how it goes from there. Not everything’s set in stone, you know. She is quite a handful. I’m serious dude, you just don’t even know half of it. She is a handful.
Do you regret being so vulnerable and crying on screen?
Hell no. That’s real s***. You got two options: be who you are or be someone that you ain’t. And I’m just gonna be who I am. And I’m gonna be on top. And that’s number one baby. It’s all about being on top.
