On Married At First Sight, Dean has been copping it as of late for describing himself as a feminist during a fiery conversation with Charlene.
On the Fifi, Fev & Byron show, Dean and his wife Tracey took part in the intense segment 'Do you mind if I ask' which allows the audience to ask any question they want.
One listener asked Dean about the comments and how he defines 'Feminist'. The now-TV star said he felt his past comments had been taken the wrong way.
"People took it as though I wanted to control a woman or keep her in the kitchen which is not what I meant at all.
"I prefer the term 'Gender Equality' [to 'feminist']. I think everyone needs to be equal and everyone needs to be treated equally and that's what I mean by feminist.
"At the same time, there is nothing wrong with a man wanting to take the lead in the relationship."
Tracey defended Dean, saying Dean was the 'least controlling person she knows.'
