Derek Peth – Bachelorette 2016 — Bio, Wiki, Photos, Twitter
Name: Derek Peth
Show: Bachelorette 2016
Education: Wartburg College
High School: Waverly-Shell Rock, Waverly, Iowa
Height: 6′ 3″
Derek was born and raised in Iowa to mother Maria Peth, 56 and father Dick Peth, 59. His father was inducted into the Wisconsin High School Basketball Coaches Association Hall of Fame. Derek has a younger sister named Rachel.
He went to Waverly-Shell Rock High School in Waverly, Iowa and attended a four-year liberal arts college: Wartburg College which interestingly is a college of the Evangelical Lutheran Church. So….looks like we have another good Christian boy for Jojo.
After graduating from Wartburg Derek moved to NYC to work in banking. But he also lived in Fort Lauderdale, Florida at some point in between. Like most of Jojo’s men Derek is also an aspiring singer.
Here he is performing the Ed Sheeran song ’Thinking Out Loud’ with Brittni Donaldson. And what do you know? They are pretty damn good!
Would you describe yourself as “the party-starter,” “the wingman” or “the laid back one”? I’m definitely the wing-man. I’m there and involved, but not in your face.
What are your three best attributes? My baby blues seem to get a lot of front-end attention, thirst for knowledge and learning, compassion for others.”
The Bachelorette premieres Monday, May 23 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
