‘BIP’: Everyone’s Freaking Out Over Derek Peth’s Comment On Tayshia Adam’s Instagram

While we’re anxiously awaiting the start of Peter Weber’s season of The Bachelor, we can’t forget all of the drama that occurred on the last season of Bachelor in Paradise. From Blake Horstmann’s drama with multiple women on the beach to some contestants finding lasting love (we’re looking at you, Hannah Godwin and Dylan Barbour), we can’t wait to see what the BIP stars are up to now.

Tayshia Adams and John Paul Jones pursued a romance post-Paradise, too. And on the show, we can’t forget that Adams and Derek Peth seemed to hit it off as well. All three of these romantics appear to be single now, but it looks like Peth is leaving flirty comments on Adams’ Instagram. Here’s what he wrote.

Tayshia Adams and John Paul Jones couldn’t make their relationship work

When Adams first started getting to know Jones, she was reluctant to give a romance a go. Jones is several years younger than her, and Adams was worried a relationship off-camera wouldn’t work between them — but by the time the reunion came around, she decided to try it anyway. Unfortunately, while Jones appeared head-over-heels with Adams and even moved out to California to pursue a career in acting and be closer to her, they stopped seeing each other at the end of October 2019.

Adams posted about their breakup on Instagram, though the post has since been deleted. “I know you guys have been asking about John and I recently, and as much as I like to keep my personal life private, I realize you have all watched and been a part of our journey from the beginning,” it read. After that, she mentioned their “insane schedules” and the distance between them were also issues — but fans knew there was something else amiss.

Adams further explained the breakup on the Bachelor Party podcast. “I told him, I’m like honestly, ‘I just want you to experience a little more life. I feel like you just need to live a little bit and learn a little bit because I feel like I can only do so much,'” Adams said.

Derek Peth might still be interested in Adams

Before Jones and Adams were getting flirty on the beach, Peth and Adams appeared to hit it off. At first, Peth spent the majority of the first few weeks of Paradise with Demi Burnett. But after Burnett made it clear that she wanted to pursue a relationship with Kristian Haggerty, Peth and Adams appeared to have a spark between them. Ultimately, we know Adams went with Jones instead of Peth, but it looks like Peth might still be interested in the one that got away.

During an interview with Access, Peth was asked if he’d want to give things another go with Adams.

“I’ve always liked Tayshia, but she kind of shut it down on me, told me that it wasn’t something that would happen,” he said. “Personally, again, I was always interested in her and that hasn’t changed.”

He left a comment on Adams’ Instagram that’s getting a ton of attention

So, where do Adams and Peth stand now? We’re not so sure — but we did notice that Peth is leaving flirty comments on Adams’ Instagram photos.

On Dec. 3, Adams posted a series of photos of her looking stylish while in the French Alps. “Arrived to the French Alps today with @boohoo for the most epic ski trip! Can’t wait to shred some fresh pow tomorrow!” she captioned the post.

It looks like Adams’ shoelaces are untied in some of the photos, too. To that, Peth commented, “need someone to tie your shoe?”

“I’ll answer for her…..yes, she does. I’ve needed you to tie her shoe since you left BIP. Make. It. Happen. Please, thank you, the end,” one excited fan commented back.

Another wrote, “please do, you 2 make such a cute couple.”

Will Adams take Peth up on that offer? We’re not sure if a reunion really could be in the works, but it looks like BIP fans are excited at the possibility.
