    IN πŸ‘ DEREK πŸ‘ WE πŸ‘ TRUST. πŸ‘

    So this last week's episodes of Bachelor in Paradise have been both fabulously entertaining and emotionally exhausting, to say the least.

    ABC

    There were fist fights, self eliminations, and β€” oh yeah β€” DEMI'S GIRLFRIEND CAME TO PARADISE AND GAVE US BACHELOR NATION'S FIRST EVER QUEER COUPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    And while that is suuuper exciting and amazing, someone DID get their heart broken in the process β€” perfect angel bb Derek Peth. :///////

    And yeah............there were tears.

    ABC

    Lots of tears.

    ABC

    NOTE: Derek was previously engaged on another season of Paradise, sooooo.........he's had a lot of onscreen heartbreak, making this even more tragiquΓ©.

    But despite losing his love interest, Derek still proved to be beyond empathetic to the whole situation, and even agreed to sit down with Demi and her girlfriend, Kristian, to talk and clear the air.

    People on Twitter immediately started praising Derek for his emotional maturity and respect for Demi:
