Fans were shocked at the news initially, but the contestants are now open about how their friendship has evolved.
“From week one, I always felt extremely comfortable around Claire,”Derek only shared his experience with E! News. “I found myself seeking her out more and more whenever I wanted to take a break from the game and just laugh.”
Claire added, “I knew that there was some chemistry pretty early on, but when you’re in the house, despite whatever chemistry you might feel, you have to keep your head in the game. So although I felt a connection, I also knew it wasn’t something I would pursue while on the show. As the weeks passed, our game relationship got much deeper and he became someone I would seek out more and more…It wasn’t until we were both in jury that the chemistry could actually flourish.”
