The Bachelorette former suitor Derek Peth just got engaged to girlfriend Saffron Vadher. The couple posted a video of the engagement ring on the internet as an announcement. Derek had a tough experience as part of the Bachelor Nation. But now, another contestant from Bachelorette has finally settled down.
The Bachelorette: Ex-Contestant Derek Found “The One”
Derek Peth has been involved with the ABC series since 2016. He first appeared on JoJo Fletcher’s season of The Bachelorette. Then, Derek joined the fourth season of Bachelor in Paradise where he ended engaged to Taylor Nolan. His engagement didn’t last though, and Derek was once again single. Next, he tried his luck on BiP again in 2019.
Derek’s relationship with Demi Burnett seemed promising at the beginning of the season. But then her ex-girlfriend arrived. And Demi called it quits with Derek to return to her ex. So, Derek Peth tried to make a connection with Tayshia Adams. Ultimately, Tayshia chose John Paul Jones (and later became this season’s The Bachelorette) and Derek went home alone.
His luck changed in early 2020. And he announced that he and fashion model Saffron Vadher were an item in March. It’s unclear how long the duo dated before the official announcement. But the two have since been present and open about their relationship post-The Bachelorette.
Derek Peth Proposes to Girlfriend
Fans of The Bachelorette franchise keep up to date on the lives of their favorite personalities from the shows. Recently, a few suitors from the show declared they are off the market permanently. Sunday, November 8th was a busy day for former contestants.
First, John Graham from season 14 of The Bachelorette posted about his engagement to girlfriend Brittni Nowell. Viewers felt thrilled when they spotted his engagement news early in the day. Congratulations flowed in from his followers and members from the Bachelorette franchise.
Hours later, Derek Peth, formerly of The Bachelorette season 12, confirmed his engagement. And, in a video Derek posted, he said, “Ohhhh” as he showed off the ring on Saffron’s finger. The couple received lots of love and support from those who watched the video.
The Bachelorette: Does the Dating Show Work?
Most of the men and women who go on The Bachelorette and related shows go home alone. But it seems the contestants increase their odds of finding love. Because those that don’t get the final rose are presented with many other opportunities. Some may get the lead on the opposite franchise.
And many get a spot on Bachelor in Paradise. Then, even if those don’t work out, the contestants are now part of the Bachelor Nation. This means they attend reunions and get-togethers with other members, which increases their dating pool. For some, that helps – but in Derek Peth’s case, he had to find romance elsewhere.
Not only that, but most castmates said they learned a lot about themselves. And about what they need in a partner when they went through this process. This greater awareness led to new and fulfilling relationships. Which then ended in marriage. Now, Derek Peth found his love, after his reality romance fails.
