Derrick Kosinski Married & Divorced / Wife
While the information is not too publicly detailed, Derrick was married at one point. He has successfully kept his ex-wife, Amy Manchin’s details in the shadows. When the reality star started with Road Rules in 2004, he went on to compete in nine challenges, out of which, he won three. But Derrick took some time off. He came back only after eight years as a divorced man with an eight-year-old son.
With the desire to start his life over after getting divorced with his wife, Derrick came to suit his need for competition. In an interview about his return to The Challenge, he said,
It’s a complete culture shock for me. I went back to college after not being there for 13 years; I’ve been raising a child for the past eight years and I was working 12-14 hours a day. I went from being this clean-cut dad leading a responsible life to… let’s party and find ways to destroy each other.
Further, into the conversation, Derrick made sure to mention that he had to be a good role model for his son, Derrick Jr. And even though he is not a fan of revealing anything concerning his ex-wife, the TV star loves to show-off his son on social media sites.

As of now, Derrick doesn’t have any romantic involvement. But in September 2017, there was a huge fuss on his decision to kiss Are You the One?’s Brittany Baldi on camera. Apparently, Brittany was joking with him that he wouldn’t make the first move. Derrick was having none of her jokes and went to kiss her. But, as Brittany was already in a relationship, the kiss didn’t lead to anything significant.
Since Derrick has been careful not to indulge in unprepared acts for the sake of his son. Nevertheless, his brother did get married in July 2018, and he was more than willing to show the event off on his Instagram. He went out and filled the captions with blessings for his brother's life as a married man.
