In a sneak preview of the episode, the pair can be seen hugging in front of a Goodyear blimp — and Rachel definitely seems smitten with the blue-eyed startup recruiter.
The 26-year-old hottie didn’t waste any time when it came to making a lasting impression on Rachel. Dean delivered what is surely one of the most memorable lines of the season so far when he told the lawyer, “I’m ready to go black and I’m never going to go back.” He spouted the controversial line during the After The Final Rose special, where he was one of the first men to her.
However, Rachel didn’t seem too bothered by Dean’s candid remark. In the second episode of the reality show, the two share an honest conversation, and surprisingly enough, really hit it off!
“I don’t care what anybody else says, I loved it,” Rachel told Dean during episode two’s group date. “For me, I was like, you came out here and didn’t care if the world was going to love it or hate it. So I was already intrigued. But let’s just be 100 percent honest… I wanted to say that first.”

He likes to travel.
Dean seems to be adventurous in his love life, as well as in his personal life. His Instagram feed is full of shots of himself visiting different places including this pic from Thailand.
When asked to describe his perfect date, he said, “Anywhere that’s fun where we can laugh and do new things. Pushing the limits of what both of us are comfortable with.”
He’s a startup recruiter.
The reality star definitely has a sense of humor, but he knows how to handle business as well. There’s no doubt that his people skills come in handy when he’s searching for talent for new companies.
He’s no stranger to tattoos.
According to his bio, he has six tattoos in total: “Mom’s initials on chest, artwork on back, friend’s initials on back, ‘Righteous’ on inner lip, Latin on hip, Triforce on inner arm.”
He’s a kid at heart.
Dean might be in his mid-20s, but why should that stop him from having fun? He even admitted that the best thing a date can do for him is be “able to keep me laughing all night.”
We can’t wait to watch tonight’s episode of The Bachelorette, which airs Monday at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
