Strause: Oh, I haven't, and neither has Rachel. But I applaud Dean for approaching other conversations about race on the show respectfully; he denounced Lee’s ignorance and he considerately expressed his thoughts on interracial dating while he was on the show.

Typically, ABC cares strongly about the likability factor in casting their Bachelor or Bachelorette.
Remember when they unofficially chose Caila Quinn as the Bachelorette and began filming her season promo, before abruptly choosing the more likable Jo Jo Fletcher instead? Even Luke Pell had his bags packed and was told the night before he was flying to the Bachelor Mansion that they went with Nick Viall instead.
Tyler and Emily actually met at church in Charlotte, North Carolina and were married in 2014. She went on to have three children with her hubby Tyler Johnson so far.
"More than likely the next Bachelor will come out of the final three because that’s what history tells us," the franchise host told Jackie Strause: I think we can safely say that of Rachel's three finalists, Bryan Abasolo is out of the running for the Bachelor.
Even though we don't know who Rachel picks on Monday night, Bryan has long been the frontrunner and, at this point, seems like the obvious winner.
Schoellkopf: Of course, there are exceptions to this rule, like Juan Pablo — who even Chris Harrison admitted that he didn’t like.
But even in casting Nick for Schoellkopf: Dean Unglert has scored major points.
