What Did Derek Do On 'The Bachelorette'? The Contestants Are Mad At Him

Guys, I already love The Bachelorette so much this season, and it's all because of the untold heights of man drama that are coming out of JoJo's men. But now that Chad is out of the picture, who's going to be the next public enemy in the mansion? If some of the dudes have their way, it will be my favorite Jim Halpert lookalike, Derek — especially if Monday night's episode was any indication. But why do the Bachelorette guys hate Derek? Honestly, I'm just in the dark as you are.

In the ep, all the guys were ganging up on Derek, and the only conclusion I can draw is that they're upset he got a rose andkept taking their precious time with JoJo, although let's be real — who doesn't do that? I know Jordan has definitely monopolized JoJo's time in a group setting, and so have other guys. Besides, how could they not like Derek, though? I mean, have you seen his face? He's so cute! And he's always so sweet, not just to JoJo but to everyone else! Maybe they're just jealous that he looks like the hottest dude to ever come from an NBC sitcom. That has to be it.

There's also the fact that Derek took Jordan, Alex, and Robby aside to fill them in that everyone else feels excluded from their friend group, so that could have something to do with it. Of course, that wouldn't give everyone else a reason not to like him, just those three. But can anyone explain what's going on in the minds of these men? Not me!

Whatever is going on, it needs to stop. The men in this competition need to realize that Derek is a national treasure and should be protected at all costs. As entertaining as it is, the drama needs to go.
