Fans of The Bachelor franchise have yet another reason to rejoice because Bachelor in Paradise is just around the corner. After all the drama and speculation that this season would not air, Bachelor in Paradise season 4 will premiere August 14 on ABC.

In June, production for the show was temporary halted to investigate allegations of misconduct. In a statement, it was revealed,  “We have become aware of allegations of misconduct on the set of Bachelor in Paradise in Mexico. We have suspended production and we are conducting a thorough investigation of these allegations. Once the investigation is complete, we will take appropriate responsive action.” It was soon discovered that the two contestants involved were Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson. 

Both contestants stirred up a lot of trouble during their respective seasons, and fans were quick to wonder what would become of Bachelor in Paradise after filming was suspended. However, it did not take long for the investigation to end, and before fans knew it, filming was resumed. Among the familiar faces we will see is Derek Peth.

If you have watched The Bachelorette season 12, then you may remember Peth joking to JoJo Fletcher that he looked like Harry Potter. He calls himself a nerd, and his favorite movies are Star Wars, Hookand Field of Dreams. His ABC profile states that his favorite historical figure is Ben Franklin because “he was able to view the world with childlike wonder to feed his creative/inventive side and balance that with a work ethic that produced massive shifts for the greater good.”

Besides watching movies, Peth also likes to keep fit —something made clear by Derek Peth’s Instagram account, which has pics of him working out. He also enjoys hiking, surfing, and going on adventures.
