Jackson Garlick Explains His Leonardo DiCaprio Photoshop Fail
While he may not have received a rose after hometowns, Jackson still had a smile on his face -- but it wasn't because of his famous Hollywood friends.
Partway through the season, Jackson was rocked by the ~massive scandal~ where Daily Mail Australia had uncovered an Instagram that appeared to be doctored.
In 2016 Jackson posted what appeared to be a selfie with Leonardo DiCaprio. Originally captioning the shot "The one and only", the 25-year-old was called out for the faked pic.
Laughing, Jackson told 10 daily he and his dad were in the States for a conference.
"We were scouting for our store on Hollywood Boulevard and there was a tourist attraction there where you could get yourself photoshopped with celebrities," he said.
"We thought, you know what would be great to g-up mum at home? Dad would get superimposed with Kim Kardashian and I'd get Leo," Jackson continued.
"Our friends are so gullible so -- obviously my dad doesn't have Instagram -- I threw mine up and I just didn't deny it because I thought it would be such a stitch-up to everyone who'd think we actually met him and how jealous they'd be."
"And Dad got Kim K and mum was absolutely fuming!"
While he still admits the post is one of the funniest gags he's pulled, Jackson said once the Daily Mail surfaced the pic he "got a bit of a hammering for that".
"All the other photos I've had have been accused of potentially being photoshopped so... I copped way more flack off my friends and family than my public can give me," he said, laughing. "It's funny the memes that have come out."
