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 adolescent, and on this episode, he opened up about his strained rapport with “his fathers”. His mother’s fatality placed 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 disappear dirtbiking, let’s lead snowboarding. He was never the one who was like Let me drive “youve got to” school, let me take you to lunch, he was never that person. So the second my mother passed away, who was that person, he wasn’t be permitted to threw the permutation and become the person that I necessitated him to be and it took a big hit on our relationship.

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

He’s simply not a person that has only one demeanour on my psychological suffer, I guess you could tell. 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 lecture didn’t scare off Rachel. On the contrary, Rachel praised Dean for ultimately opening up to her and offered him a rose.

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