Well, the latest Bachelor spinoff has been around for exactly one episode, and fans already have a favorite couple in mind. On Tuesday night, Dean and Lesley hit it off on Bachelor Winter Games almost immediately, and they built the foundation of their relationship on one very important conversation. What was it about? Well, Google and boobs, of course.
If you've been following along with Lesley's story, you already know that after her mom was diagnosed with breast cancer, she found out that she tested positive for the BRCA2 gene. Last year, she underwent a double mastectomy to prevent cancer and then went back under the knife for breast implants. It's become a big part of her life — and it's something she's talked a lot about — but when she and Dean sat down to talk and get to know each other better, she was nervous about bringing it up. Who wouldn't be?
Fortunately, he reacted like a pro — and the topic came up pretty naturally during their conversation, considering how hard it might have been to segue into that discussion. At first, they were talking about things they'd see on each other's Google search history, and when Lesley quickly guessed "boobs," Dean wanted to know why she liked them so much.
Lesley's response? "I like boobs so much I'll chop them off and rebuild them," she said, which is a pretty badass way to bring up the fact that you took control of your own life and health by going through two pretty big surgeries. How would anyone not fall in love with her?
Knowing Dean from The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise, it's not too surprising that his reaction was pretty sweet (although he's definitely had his transgressions in the past). Even though Lesley was visibly nervous and telling Dean he'd be the judge of how her boobs turned out, he came back with the absolute perfect reply: that Lesley should be the only judge of her own body, but as far as he was concerned, they are "great boobs." Dean, you get some serious points for that answer.
After an interaction like that, it makes sense that fans are already gushing about their budding relationship on Twitter, even though some of them are a little hesitant about Lesley trusting Dean with her feelings, thanks to the BiP love triangle disaster we all witnessed last summer:
They are really cute together, though, and this really could be the beginning of a beautiful love story happening on the Winter Games. Honestly, Bach spinoffs have always been more successful than the regular shows in terms of lasting relationships, so who knows? If this show ends up getting a second season, this time next year we could see Dean and Lesley tying the knot in the midst of the winter wonderland that is Vermont. How magical would that be?
It seems like things are going to go well for awhile, because in the promo for the rest of the season, Dean admitted that he's falling in love with Lesley, which is some pretty serious stuff. Is it too soon to call these two as the first success story of this particular spinoff?
After seeing this love connection happen, it's easy to see that it's going to be so much fun to watch the rest of this unfold. And thankfully, Winter Games is on twice a week, so we'll be kept up to date with this romance. Now, all we have to do is hope it all works out for the long term. Fingers crossed for the two of them!
