'Bachelorette' Suitor Derek Peth Defends His Elimination Tears -- and Disses Jenny McCarthy


We've seen plenty of crying on The Bachelor, but finally! The tears have begun flowing on The Bachelorette!

JoJo Fletcher sent Derek Peth packing after a two-on-one tango date with Chase McNary. As Derek was driven away in the elimination van, he couldn't help but shed a tear or two -- or, you know, full-on sob -- while JoJo and Chase danced to "Don't Cry for Me Argentina."

"Oooooof why am I crying #mantears," Derek livetweeted during the episode.

"When a man cries in Argentina...a unicorn is born. #ididitforjojo," he adorably added.

While Derek seems to be a good sport about it all -- he revealed that his friends are already calling him "Argentina" -- he slammed Jenny McCarthy after she tweeted, "Is it wrong that I have a maniacal laugh while watching Derek cry?"

"This is as acceptable as your fight against vaccines. #science," Derek clapped back.

Monday's episode of The Bachelorette -- the first episode without Chad! We miss you, Chad! -- also included Jordan's "entitled" side and plenty of awkwardly boring dates. Relive all the best moments in the video below.
