A very short interview came out in a Jacksonville newspaper in which he talks about his Road Rules experience.
He talks about how he was cast, with a tape that he submitted nearly three years ago. Although he didn't expect the cameras to come asking him for a shot to get on the RV, he decided to sign on anyway.
He talks about the experience, how he doesn't like being in a town where he doesn't know many people. Clearly, everyone on the RV is ready to go home, as this isn't the first time when we've heard the cast say something about wanting to leave and return home. Derek mentions that filming will wrap up as early as this week, which means that the series may end even earlier than everyone has anticipated.
He also closes out the interview that he's looking forward to riding out the wave a couple of more years and doing some Challenges in the next couple of years.
