Derek Chavez is a roommate on The Real World: Cancun.


Derek is the resident nice guy...a friend to all. But watch out, he's not afraid to be brutally honest about anything and everything. But even so, all the roommates love him. He was raised in a small town by his grandmother, who he calls his mom, since she was there for him throughout his entire life. Through it all Derek became an overachiever. In high school, he was president of the student council, captain of the basketball and track teams, and valedictorian of his graduating class. He is openly gay and loves the single life, claiming he's too young to be committed to anyone, although he does have ex-boyfriend baggage that seems to follow him around....even to Cancun. Derek is currently pursuing a bachelor's degree in Kinesiology at Arizona State University and ultimately wants to be a physician's assistant. This rarely happens on "The Real World," but Derek has the benefit of already knowing one of the roommates. He and Jonna work together at a bar in Tempe.


After Real World

Derek return to Pheonix with Jonna, and the two plan on moving to California.
