The 26-year-old startup recruiter hit if off with former Bachelor star Lesley Murphy pretty quickly — but unfortunately he did not ask Lesley to marry him. Instead, he proclaimed his love for the blonde beauty before presenting her with the key to his house. Instead, it was Clare Crawley who got engaged on the stage!
Previously, Dean and Lesley, 30, opened up about their relationship — and did little to hide the fact that they were still going strong after meeting on the slopes of Vermont. "I didn't know much about Dean," Lesley told Entertainment Tonight. "I saw his cute little face and those big blue eyes and it just went from there."
Dean continued, "She's a very courageous person. She's strong, and that's first and foremost what attracted me to her. Of course, she's beautiful, and if you want to talk about someone who's kind to everyone, it's her! It's kind of annoying when we go places and she literally makes friends with every single person we meet."
Last year, Lesley underwent a double mastectomy after her mom was diagnosed with breast cancer— so we'll be keeping our fingers crossed for her. "In a few hours I’ll be back in the hospital completing a task I knew I’d set out to do the moment I found out I was BRCA 2 positive," she wrote at the time. "Knowledge is power and I feel powerful knowing I kicked cancer’s ass before it could kick mine." Fake proposal aside, Dean is one lucky guy!
