This week on The Bachelorette, it is time for hometown dates with Rachel Lindsay. Dean Unglert is one of the four guys that Rachel will be going with to meet their family. Dean went to his Instagram page to share about his father and go ahead and defend him before the show airs. Dean wants his fans to not be judgmental while watching the new episode this week. Rachel will be going to meet four different families in this two-hour episode.
Dean’s dad is a bit “eccentric” according to Dean, but that doesn’t make him ashamed of his dad at all. He went to his page and asked that the fans understand he didn’t mean this about his dad’s Sikh faith or the turban he wears on his head. Dean doesn’t want the fans to be nice to spare his feelings or his dads but really wants everyone to be considerate of the people who are part of the Sikh faith.
Dean Unglert went on to explain that he isn’t close with his dad, but that doesn’t mean that he doesn’t support his decision to live his life the way that he wants to and feels like is right for him. Dean went on to explain his thoughts on this not holding back.
“Let us not criticize him for his appearance or his beliefs because by doing so we are disparaging an entire faith and culture that includes millions of people.”
Another thing that Dean said is that his fans are better than that and he knows that about them. The viewers are going to have to wait until Monday night to see Dean’s father, but you will notice what Dean is talking about as soon as you see him. Rachel Lindsay will be getting the chance to meet him and will have to decide if this is someone that would fit her and if Dean is someone she might want to marry in the future.
