Doubling Down With the Derricos fans, it’s time to get to know Eric Jefferson. He’s been a part of the TLC series and is close with the Derrico family. But not everyone knows exactly who he is. How did he meet the Derricos? Are they related by blood? Keep reading for all of the details about the relationship Deon and Karen Derrico’s family has with Eric.

Who is Eric Jefferson?

Eric first appeared on Doubling Down With the Derricos in Season 1. Since then, he’s been a major part of the family’s lives and enjoys hanging out with Karen, Deon, GG, and all 14 of the kids.

Though Eric isn’t a blood relative of the Derricos, he’s known as a “primary family member.” Eric was previously a tenant of Deon and Karen. Then, he got to know them better and became a real estate employee. As he worked alongside Deon, he had the chance to get to know the rest of the family, too. And that’s where their friendship began.
