The new season of “The Bachelorette” is officially upon us, and typically, there is something to the subject of who gets the first one-one-one date of the season. We don’t always find that they are the person the leading lady is the most interested in of the entire group, largely because that would be a tad too predictable. However, at the same time they do often prove to be the person who is a possible contender, and someone they want to emerge from the middle of the pack.
On Monday’s episode, JoJo Fletcher is going to get a chance to learn more about Derek Path, a guy who really didn’t stand out too much in the premiere. He’ll have a little bit of a creative date with her in San Francisco, but based on the synopsis below, it feels like he is going to struggle a little bit with being vulnerable:
“Derek is the fortunate man who JoJo whisks away for the first one-on-one date of the season. In choosing their own adventure, they decide on having a romantic picnic by the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. JoJo is impressed by Derek, but he struggles to open up to her about his past heartache. Will JoJo’s honesty about her past help break down his walls?”
We actually get where Derek is coming from here. Any kind person would struggle to talk about their feelings, especially past relationships, while on-camera, especially so early in the season. You don’t want to paint either yourself or anyone you’ve been with in a disparaging light, and sometimes it can get easy to be caught up in the narrative and say something you regret.
