Hannah Brown’s ‘Bachelorette’ Boys Have A Post-Show Group Text That’s a Little Weird Thanks to Jed Wyatt

When contestants first arrive in Los Angeles to film The Bachelorette, they have to get rid of their phones. There’s no texting, calling, or browsing social sites during one’s stay at the mansion. But afterward, it’s not atypical for contestants to keep in touch via Twitter, Instagram, and texting.

Multiple sources recently told Us Weekly that Hannah Brown’s former contestants have a group text that even Jed Wyatt and Luke Parker are a part of.

What ‘The Bachelorette’ group text is like

“There is one big chain with the guys and then a few smaller ones with each of the cliques that hung out the most in the house,” one insider told the publication. “The majority of the guys don’t have any negative feelings about Jed, but there are a few who do wish things would have ended differently for both Hannah and themselves.”

According to the source, Wyatt is “especially close” with Dylan Barbour (Hannah Godwin’s current partner on Bachelor In Paradise). Apparently, Wyatt also “keeps in touch with” Garrett Powell, John Paul Jones, Connor Saeli, and “some others.”

But another source told the publication that some of Brown’s former contestants still harbor “ill feelings” for Wyatt.

“Some of the guys still have ill feelings and resentment toward him,” said the second source.

Unsurprisingly, Luke Parker is still seen as the “outcast” of the group.

“Luke P. is by far the outcast of the group,” said the first source. “No one really reaches out to him at all, and a lot of the guys didn’t even bother to follow him on social media after the show.”

The last time many of Hannah Brown’s former contestants saw Luke Parker

The last many of the men saw of Parker was during the “Men Tell All” taping, where he got up and left suddenly after a commercial break.

Prior to leaving, Parker was in the hot seat with Harrison for about two hours. After that, he had the opportunity to speak to Brown about their relationship. The conversation wasn’t exactly flattering for the season villain. Brown told the audience all the ways in which she felt her relationship with Parker had been toxic.

I want you all to know why I went on this TV show and why I went back for @alabamahannah after she sent me home. I never wanted to go on the show to begin with, my sister in law @hleaparker22 signed me up and I kept an open mind. Going through the interview process I watched Colton’s season and a beautiful southern girl stood out to me during the intro videos. She told the cameras she respected Colton’s virginity and that it was super appealing to her that he was a virgin, and was the bachelor because sex was a big deal to her. I saw her Instagram and in her bio read “I love Jesus with my whole heart”, I was sold and if I was going on this TV show it was for her. I also noticed she told Colton how she wanted to be a wife of Noble character. I knew she was quoting Proverbs 31 which gave me the impression there is a way God could use this show… yes, even the “Bachelorette” as a way to bring him Glory. The first night I made her a Proverbs 31 bracelet then explained to her that I noticed what she said to Colton and I knew where it came from and how important my faith was to me. Shortly after that, I get the first impression rose. On my hometown date I brought Hannah to a bible study with my college church group, where I shared my story of how God transformed my life and gave me a desire to live my life for him in obedience, that included waiting until marriage for sex. Hannah on the date, stands up and tells the group her story of how she was convicted to live a life in pursuit of Jesus. She also told them that she wasn’t going to use the fantasy suites for sex but for conversation, no matter how @abcnetwork made it look. I had to go back and fight for her, I believed in my heart she was making the biggest mistake of her life based on what she was telling me, I wanted her to know that we could get through this and I was here for her. #thebachelorette

“I feel like the relationship that I had with Luke, unfortunately, it’s a relationship that a lot of women can relate to. A lot of women have been in toxic relationships and maybe, just maybe me going through that and being able to remember my worth and figure that out for myself can help somebody that’s in that now see the signs of that and, ultimately, that makes me realize that I don’t have regrets because that was worth all of it,” she said.

Brown also apologized to America for keeping Parker around for so long.

“I just want to say, Bachelor Nation, I’m sorry. I’m sorry for this whole thing with Luke and him just being on our television screens for so long. Way longer than any of us ever desired. It’s my fault, a lot his, but I did it, I was there, I am sorry. I’m tired of talking about him,” she said. “The Luke P. show is canceled. We will not renew the season. Again, my apologies, and God bless the United States of America. Roll Tide.”
