On Monday night's Men Tell All special, Chris Harrison finally uttered the words that all of us have been thinking all season long on The Bachelorette: "People love themselves some Dean." It's hard to pinpoint exactly what it is that makes people fall head over heels for this guy in an instant. Is it his gorgeous face, his sweet personality, his sense of humor, his joy in flying a blimp? Maybe it's a combination of all of those things. Regardless, Chris' statement couldn't be more true, because Twitter was sharing all the Dean love while the special aired.
Of course, if you keep an eye on The Bachelorette hashtag during a regular episode, you already know that this has become a pattern every single Monday night, because Dean is such a huge fan favorite and always has been. And now, as this precious angel had to confront his fellow contestants and Rachel for the first time since he was eliminated from the show, it wasn't just love that the fans were sending him on Twitter — they were also ready to defend him against anything.
Some fans were ready to come after Whaboom for daring to tell Dean to shut up:
Totally true statement, by the way. Dean is all puppies and sunshine. Maybe a rainbow or two.
Other fans were just super happy to see him, although honestly, doesn't that apply to everyone watching?
And some were just ready for what could be (needs to be) Dean's next chapter in his reality TV journey.
If Dean doesn't become the bachelor I will literally set myself on fire #MenTellAll— 🤷🏻♀️ (@bundtfriday) August 1, 2017
But even if Dean isn't the next Bachelor, everything Chris has said is so true: People do love themselves some Dean, and that's not going to change anytime soon.
People didn't even care that he puts chewed gum behind his ear to save for later!
Dean literally stores gum behind his ear and we still find him hella attractive. Lord help us. #MenTellAll— Bachelor Burn Book (@bachelorburnbk) August 1, 2017
Next up? Bachelor in Paradise. Dean will undoubtedly be a hot commodity in Mexico. Who wouldn't fall in love with him?!
