DeMato is the youngest of one sister and five brothers. Her mother, Joan, is a realtor at Remax in her home town and her father, Peter, owns Chase Equipment in New Milford. She is a 1997 graduate of Brookfield High School.
The buxom DeMato was heavily featured in coverage of the early rounds of American Idol, including the showing of drama with fellow singer Kimberly Caldwell during the "Hollywood" phase. She sang Dusty Springfield's hit "Son of a Preacher Man" in the semi-finals. In the finals, she sang "Flashdance - What A Feeling" and "Where Did Our Love Go", before being voted off on March 26, 2003 after a rendition of Faith Hill's "Breathe".
After the show, she had some success on the American Idol concert tour, singing "Beautiful" by Christina Aguilera. She also recorded a cover of "At Last" by Etta James on the American Idol 2 Love Songs CD. DeMato's versions of these songs were well-regarded by fans and reviewers.
However, her brief musical career peaked with the CD and the concert tour, and further success eluded her. Later in 2003, she had a short stint as a judge for the Oxygen Network's show Meow TV.
She was unable to secure a recording contract with an established company, but did record one song, "Let It Rain", with a company called Somme Music - an Internet storefront marketing that one song. Reaction to this song was mixed: some liked the vocals and also the music, while others had a problem with the composition and the negative tone of some of the lyrics (written by the head of Somme Music). No further songs were recorded.
Living in her home town of Brookfield, and working once more as a cosmetologist, she has given occasional concerts in that area of Connecticut, but has otherwise not been heard from.
On July 6, 2005, she and her fiancé, electrician Jim Polches, became parents of boy James Peter when she gave birth in Danbury, Connecticut. She and Polches planned to wed the following year.
In December, 2005, she made a brief return to the news when she was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana and cocaine, as well as driving while intoxicated after failing a field sobriety test. At first, DeMato claimed it had all been a misunderstanding. While Connecticut has severe penalties against drunk driving, she was able to avoid a jail term and a criminal record by negotiating, through her lawyer, an alternative sentence involving community service and a program of drug and alcohol education.
