Dean, a 26-year-old startup recruiter from Venice, CA, left the show brokenhearted and shocked because Rachel had told him she was "falling in love" with him. (To view our photo gallery of Dean, click here).
Well now that Dean is out of the picture, Rachel only has three men still in the running for her heart on Season 13 -- Bryan Abasolo, a 37-year-old chiropractor from Miami, FL; Eric Bigger, a 29-year-old personal trainer from Los Angeles, CA; and Peter Kraus, a 31-year-old personal trainer and business owner from Madison, WI.

According to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone, Rachel picked Bryan as her winner at the final Rose Ceremony filmed in Spain.
Bryan allegedly proposed marriage to Rachel with a Neil Lane diamond engagement ring and the couple is still together right now.
Rachel is so happy in her current relationship with Bryan that she told E! News she wants a wedding "sooner than later" and hopes the nuptials will take place "next year."
Rachel's quest for marriage is different from Bachelorettes in the past, such as JoJo Fletcher and Kaitlyn Bristowe, who decided to take advantage of long engagements in order to get to know their significant others better.
Rachel is "definitely in love" and can't wait to go on normal dates that normal couples enjoy once The Bachelorette finale airs on TV and the couple can go public with their romance.
"My sources... are sure she's with Bryan. And so am I," Carbone wrote in a June 5 blog post, although he initially reported an incorrect spoiler prior to The Bachelorette's May 22 premiere when he claimed Peter was actually the man who proposed to Rachel. "If they are wrong, I'm wrong."
So if Bryan won the season, who finished as Rachel's runner-up?
Carbone claims Rachel dumped Peter in second place after eliminating Eric in third place. The spoilers probably aren't a huge surprise to fans given Bryan has been a solid frontrunner from the start and Rachel has had issues with both Peter and Eric.
Rachel worried that Peter had walls up throughout his journey on the show and wasn't going to be ready to pop the question at the end of it.
Rachel also had some ups and downs with Eric, who admitted he had never been in love or even brought a woman home to meet his family before. Rachel feared that Eric was just infatuated with her and hadn't experienced enough in relationships to know whether he's ready for marriage.
The next The Bachelorette episode is set to air on Monday, July 24 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC. So, according to the network, here's what will unfold on TV.
Rachel will surprise the Final 3 guys in her hometown of Dallas by introducing them all to her family.
"One by one they will be put on the hot seat, as Rachel explores what her future would be like with these potential partners," ABC teased.
Peter will be the first man to meet Rachel's family, and he'll apparently waste no time gushing about his feelings for the Bachelorette. However, that doesn't mean Peter will be shy about his doubts and reservations about getting married. Rachel's mother may or may not appreciate Peter's honesty.
Eric meets Rachel's family next and immediately connects with them because of his "humble history," ABC teased. "But the fact that he has never been in love before leads them to question whether he is emotionally mature enough to see this relationship through to the end."
Bryan then has his chance to get to know Rachel's family, but his "overconfident manner doesn't earn him points," revealed the network. Like Rachel previously feared, her family questions whether Bryan is too good to be true and too smooth to be sincere.
Will Bryan be able to turn things around in order to receive the family's permission to ask Rachel to marry him?
According to Carbone, Rachel's hometown date was filmed in Dallas rather than an exotic destination because her sister was pregnant at the time and couldn't travel abroad.
Rachel will then sweep her suitors off to the beautiful wine country of Rioja, Spain for the season's romantic overnight Fantasy Suite dates in which the couples will spend intimate time with each other and have no distractions from cameras.
Eric will accompany Rachel on a helicopter ride over the region and then the couple will climb up winding stone steps to a monastery where they'll discuss their future.
Eric must dig deep in order to express the fact he is in love with Rachel. ABC suggested that Eric does not say "I love you" during the day portion of their date but he'll get another opportunity to open his heart up at dinner that night.
Rachel and Peter will then be shown traveling to a vineyard in the Spanish countryside where the two will explore mystic wine cellars and receive their own personalized bottles of wine. The couple will discuss Peter's hesitancy to get engaged, but it apparently becomes clear that he's at least falling in love with Rachel.
However, a proposal "might be a tall order" for Peter, according to the network. "The seriousness of the situation sinks in, and Rachel dissolves in tears."
Bryan's overnight Fantasy Suite date will not be shown during next week's episode of The Bachelorette episode, but instead air during the following week's broadcast.
"Rachel has different, but equally troubling, concerns weighing on her mind about these bachelors. Will she gain some clarity and come closer to finding true love, or will more uncertainty and doubt surface?" ABC teased of the remainder of Rachel's journey on the show.
