Much like his character Danny Wheeler on Freeform’s Baby Daddy, Derek Theler has always been smooth with the ladies. And when Theler stopped by the EW office, he revealed those skills were put to use in his very first “acting” gig: a date with Lauren Conrad.
As he explains in the video above, Theler met Conrad on his first day in Los Angeles and immediately went on a date with her as The Hills cameras rolled. Watch the full video above to hear his experiences on the MTV reality show as well as who his first celebrity crush was. (Spoiler alert: It wasn’t LC.)
Baby Daddy airs Wednesday at 8:30 p.m. ET on Freeform.
