'The Bachelorette' premiere: Rachel responds to Dean's "I'm ready to go black" line

ABC

"I'm ready to go black and I'm never gonna go back."

That was the line uttered by Bachelorette season 13 contestant Dean Unglert. Dean, a startup recruiter, got the advantage of being one of the few men to meet star Rachel Lindsay on The Bachelor's After the Final Rose special. And THAT line is how he decided to use his bonus time with the attorney.

Did it catch her attention? It certainly did — and Twitter users took notice as well.

Rachel laughed off the joke during the After the Final Rose — but how does she feel now? 

She played it cool with him when he made his limo exit.

"What clever line do you have up your sleeves this time?" she asked Dean, giving him a hug.

"It was cute," she told him when he asked her reaction. "But I love the confidence ... People are either going to love it or hate it. I loved it."
