Derek is a 30-year-old commercial banker from Waverly, IA. He first competed on JoJo Fletcher's season of The Bachelorette in 2016.
Derek rubbed some of the guys the wrong way on The Bachelorette and was accused of being insecure and needy, but he's Mr. Popular in Paradise and proved, with confidence and ease, that he can get the girl.
Derek and Taylor Nolan hit it off immediately in Paradise and have been inseparable ever since. The couple only wants to spend time with each other, and they seemingly won't be tempted by new arrivals.
Will Derek and Taylor fall in love, and will the rest of their journey on the show progress smoothly?
Below is a list of 6 facts Reality TV World has compiled about Derek Peth:
- Derek is very Christian and attended a four-year Evangelical Lutheran Church liberal arts college called Wartburg College in Iowa.
- Fans joke about how the 6'3" blue-eyed bachelor with no tattoos looks exactly like actor Jim Halpert, who is best known for his roles on The Office and Something Borrowed. Derek has come to embrace the joke himself.
- Derek isn't exactly a health nut. While he'd love to have six-pack abs some days, other days he eats Chik-Fil-A for breakfast and two snickers bars for lunch.
