It wasn’t looking good for Dean at the start of his one-on-one date on this week’s episode of. The living Ken doll chose to joke around with Rachel instead of opening up to her as they strolled around Geneva, but that all changed at dinner.
When Rachel asked him to get serious, Dean divulged why he’s so nervous about Rachel meeting his family if she selected him for next week’s hometown dates.
Dean has hitherto disclosed his mother died when he was a teenager, and on this episode, he opened up about his laboured relation with “his fathers”. His mother’s death applied 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 go dirtbiking, let’s exit snowboarding. He was never the one who was like Let me drive you to school, let me take “youve got to” lunch, he was never that person. So the second my mother passed away, who was that person, he wasn’t able to flip-flop the swap and grow the person that I needed 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 his family back when his mother was still around.
He’s simply not a person that has only one demeanor on my psychological know, I guess you could say. 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 their own families that abandoned me at the most vulnerable time in my life.
But the addres 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 satisfying Dean’s family next week!
