Dean McDermott embodied the archetypical Hollywood romantic lead - tall, blue eyed, and an all-around congenial personality. In the mid-1990s, he was considered somewhat of a screen heartthrob who appeared in more than 30 films and 15 television productions, most notably as Constable Turnbull on the Canadian TV series, "Due South" (CTV, 1995-96), and for his intriguing performance in "Lives of Girls and Women" (CBC Television, 1994). But McDermott's claim to fame was his whirlwind affair with actress Tori Spelling; the affair became instant tabloid fodder since both were still married at the time. After separating from their respective spouses a month after they met, the two tied the knot in 2006 and quickly parlayed their newfound fame into the reality series "Tori & Dean: Inn Love" (Oxygen, 2007-08) and "Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood" (Oxygen, 2008- ). With the success of his reality shows, McDermott finally became a household name and gained a new legion of fans.
