‘Bachelorette’ Rachel Responds To Contestant Who Said He Was ‘Ready To Go Black’

fansalready know we couldnt even get to the first episode of Rachel Lindsays season before someone made a bad race joke.

If youre unaware, let me fill you in real quick. The new Bachelorette Rachel got the chance to meet a handful of her suitors back in Marchon special. It was sufficiently awkward, but contestant Deans remark made it so, so much worse.

Dean joked,

I just wanna let you know: Im ready to go black and Im never going to go back.

No. Just, no.

Rachel played off the joke sweetly, laughing and saying I love that. But Bachelor Nation couldnt help but roll their eyes for her.

During premiere on Monday night, Dean re-introduced himself after emerging from the limo at the mansion and was really interested to hear what Rachel really thought about his remark.


Racheltold Dean,

It was cute, but I love the confidence. People are either gonna love it or hate it. I loved it.

OK, then! To each her own.

Dean also got a chance to get some one-on-one time with Rachel after all the guys got to the mansion. He had a tiny sandbox set up and said he wanted to make sandcastles because he lives in Los Angeles and loves going to the beach with his friends. And, SPOILER ALERT! He doesnt even know how to build sandcastles!


Despite Dean being a very basic white man from LA, Rachel seems to be into him. Even Dean himself said,

Shes absolutely out of my league, without a question. I hope it takes her a while to figure that out, I dont know. I guess well see.

Only time will tell if Dean wins the heart of our new Bachelorette.
