Derek & Claire on How Their Relationship Started

Derek Xiao and Claire Rehfuss formed a strong friendship in the “Big Brother” house but their romantic relationship didn’t take off until they entered the jury house.

The former houseguests opened up about their relationship in an exclusive interview with Us Weekly in October 2021.

“I think that we both really felt the chemistry once we got to jury house and could really connect with each other,” Claire told the outlet. “We would stay up late talking every single night and we just really developed a bond.”

Derek told Us Weekly that their relationship was a slow burn.

“I remember the first or second night that she was there [in the jury house], we stayed up all night just talking until 5:00 a.m. That happened every single night for the first, like, five days,” he told the publication. “That’s when I started really thinking like, ‘Wait a second, why didn’t this happen in the house? There’s such a strong connection and chemistry between us.’ I think that was the beginning of us thinking about what this could be.”

Claire and Derek have been going strong since the fall of 2021. The couple frequently shares photos and videos of their relationship on social media.

Claire dedicated a Valentine’s Day post to Derek on Instagram back in February. The former houseguest shared photos of her and Derek alongside a sweet caption.

“Corny v-day photo dump of pics that make me smile because they’re of the person that makes me the happiest,” she wrote. “Swipe to the end to see where it all began💕.”

The last photo was a screenshot of her and Derek in the “Big Brother” house.

“Big Brother 24” premieres on CBS on Wednesday, July 6, 2022, at 8 p.m. Eastern Time.
