Director Opens Up About His Family Again On ‘The Bachelorette’& It’s Heartbreaking

It wasn’t looking good for Dean at the start of his one-on-one date on this week’s chapter of. The living Ken doll chose to joke around with Rachel instead of opening up to her as they strolled around Geneva, but that everything changed at dinner.

When Rachel asked to get serious, Dean disclosed why he’s very nervous about Rachel meeting their own families if she selected him for next week’s hometown dates.


Dean has hitherto revealed his mother died when he was a boy, and on this chapter, he opened up about his labored relationship with “his fathers”. His mother’s death introduced even more strain on their relationship.

When my mother passed away, the first 15 years of “peoples lives”, my father was the one who was like Hey, let’s extend dirtbiking, let’s get snowboarding. He was never the one who was like Let me drive “youve got to” school, let me take “youve got to” lunch, “hes never” that person. So the second my mother passed away, who was that person, he wasn’t be permitted to flip the permutation and become the person that I involved him to be and it took a big hit on our relationship.

Dean went on to say that his father is eccentric now, and he wishes Rachel could have met their own families back when his mother was still around.

He’s precisely not a person that has any bear on my psychological know, I guess you could enunciate. He’s become quite a bit more eccentric. So what I wish you could see is the family that I had in my most developmental years of ages 0 to 15, and not the family that vacated me at the most vulnerable time in my life.


But the discussion didn’t frighten off Rachel. On the contrary, Rachel praised Dean for finally opening up to her and offered him a rose.

So we’ll be meeting Dean’s family next week!
