Chris Harrison Calls Out Dean Unglert for “Unbelievably Stupid Choices” on “Bachelor in Paradise”
If you went from crushing on Bachelor in Paradise’s Dean Unglert when he claimed to have found love to sneering at every mention of his name after the cringe-worthy Kristina + Dean + D-Lo love triangle, you’re not alone. Unglert, who won over fans during Rachel Lindsay’s season of The Bachelorette, showed fans another side of himself on BIP — which may not be a good thing, according to host Chris Harrison.
Perhaps because Dominique Alexis deemed Unglert “the ultimate f**kboy” this week, Harrison revealed that he’s educated himself on the lingo. “I learned what an F-boy is,” he told Entertainment Tonight during the taping of the finale last Wednesday (censoring his language for the cameras, natch).
“I mean, Dean would be up there [when it comes to f**kboys],” he added. He doesn’t think the 26-year-old would be in that particular category alone, though. “Dean or Diggy [Moreland], I guess, are the two biggest F-boys.” (As a refresher: Moreland dumped Dominique Alexis for Jaimi King on Tuesday night’s episode.)
Harrison also said, however, that he doesn’t “think any less of Dean” because of his behavior in Paradise. “Did he make unbelievably stupid choices and decisions? 100 percent, but he wore it,” the longtime Bachelor host told Entertainment Tonight, adding that he thinks “the court of public opinion” is the real reason for Unglert’s less-than-stellar rep.
Wells Adams also weighed in on the drama, saying that Unglert simply isn’t ready for the type of commitment the franchise promotes. “Dean would be the first person to admit that he’s not emotionally ready for that,” Adams told ET at the finale taping. “Dean’s got some things to figure out. I think this show right now, it stings for Dean, but this is the best thing that could ever happen to him.”
The season four finale of Bachelor in Paradise airs Monday, September 11, at 8pm ET/PT on ABC.
