But when Jenn asked Derek if he’s ever scared of his stunts, he admitted he “used to be terrified of the water.”
“I used to hate the water, especially the ocean. Then one year, I call it my year of water, I went to Tonga, I swam with humpback whales, swam with dolphins,” he revealed. “I was living in the water for months and I fell in love with it.
“You’re afraid of the unknown, you’re afraid of what you don’t understand,” Derek continued. “Once I understood the ocean, once I understood the creatures, I loved it.”
