Good news for anyone who was firmly on #TeamDean — no, not the Dean from Gilmore Girls, but Dean Unglert from this season of The Bachelorette. Not even 24 hours after we watched Rachel Lindsay send Unglert home, it’s been announced that he will return to TV on Bachelor in Paradise.

“We are excited to announce that @dean_unglert’s journey to find love will continue in Paradise! #BachelorInParadise,” the romance reality show tweeted, quickly firing up a storm of replies expressing disappointment that he hadn’t been picked as the next Bachelor (although he *still could be* if he fails to find love a second time).

With season four of BIP already sparking intrigue because of the Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson controversy (not to mention the first new trailer), the announcement that 26-year-old Unglert is heading to the beach only heats up an already sizzling situation.

Bachelor In Paradise

Bachelor in Paradise returns to ABC on Monday, August 14, and you better believe we’ll be watching every drama-filled moment.

Are you happy that Dean Unglert is headed to Bachelor in Paradise? Let us know @BritandCo!
