When Dean was shown first meeting Hazel in the Philippines during a recent episode of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days, he took some heat for treating Hazel disrespectfully and coming on a little too strong.
One comment that rubbed viewers the wrong way was when Dean expressed concern Hazel may not be enough for Tarik, and during an appearance on a live 90 Day Fiance aftershow hosted by Michelle Collins that aired on Sunday night, Dean explained what he meant by that arguably offensive remark.
"So, basically, I don't know if they've said this or not, but my brother -- he likes to have multiple women, sexually," Dean revealed.
"Tell me this: At once or just more like a polyamorous thing?" Michelle asked.
"It's party time -- at once. All of the time," Dean said.
When Dean dropped such a bombshell, Michelle replied, "Oh, damn."
"You know what I mean? And I know that. So I just hit a nerve, like, 'Are you ready for this?' Because I know how my brother is. He's down! You know what I'm saying?" Dean shared.
Michelle followed up by asking whether Dean had ever been with Tarik for "one of these romps."
"I can neither confirm or deny that," Dean said with a huge smile, while avoiding eye contact with Michelle.

Dean revealed he and Tarik used to meet women in all different kinds of places and they tend to be "more open-minded" about sexual things these days.
"I wasn't really tripping about it, but I just wanted to really make sure [Hazel] was ready," Dean insisted.
Dean apparently discovered later on that Hazel was "a lot more ready than I thought."
"Because she told me that she does go both ways. She is bisexual," Dean disclosed on the live aftershow.
Michelle then asked Dean how he feels about Tarik and Hazel's engagement overall considering Tarik was just shown proposing marriage during Sunday night's broadcast of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days.
"At first, as you guys saw, [Hazel] was very standoffish, and that was what initially kind of put red flags up in my head. She did not look me in the eye," Dean explained.
"And listen, I've been in the Marine Corps for 10 years. You've got to look me in the eye when you talk to me or else I'm not going to trust you. I'm not going to believe you; I'm not going to like you. That's how it goes... And that's the way I came at the situation."
Dean admitted his strong reaction to Tarik and Hazel's romance "might've been a bit extreme" but he simply felt like he needed to "save" his brother at the time.
Dean feared Hazel was just looking for a way to move to the United States given she lived in poverty with her family in the Philippines.
"I had never seen his eyes so big, and I never saw this side of him before... And in two weeks too! This was, like, really quick!... And he's in real estate and we've got businesses together out here. A lot of our money is tied together," Dean elaborated on why he was so skeptical of Hazel's intentions.
Dean said if a woman comes into Tarik's life for the long-term, she must be perfect and worthy of sharing in their joint successes.
