A Rocky Climb to the Top

Guy chose Dean first to be on his team. In Dean he saw a fighter, but no one could predict Dean would make it to the finale. His journey was a roller coaster of ups and downs and he was nearly eliminated twice. For the longest time, winning the competition appeared hopeless for Team Guy. But Dean proved he could roll with the punches, and in the end he came out on top, victorious.

From the beginning, Dean led the team through many of the challenges. He was always there to help his teammates through thick and thin, whether it was as small as giving advice or as big as helping to finish a dish.

In the first episode, Team Guy put on a Wild Wild West theater skit. Dean playing the sheriff couldn't have been a better fit. The dinner guests not only raved about his portrayal of Durango Dean, they loved his food.

The grilled lamb and potatoes dish that Dean made during the farm challenge put him in the bottom two. It was hard to compete against his teammate Cornelia, but Dean won the corn cook-off elimination challenge. The next episode would find him in a similar position.
