‘The Bachelorette’: Chris Harrison Reveals the Franchise’s Biggest Villain

If you’ve been keeping up with the world of The Bachelorette at all this season, then you have probably heard the name, Luke Parker. Parker went from being a frontrunner to a villain in record time.

From the moment he stepped out of the limo, it was clear that he had caught Bachelorette Hannah Brown’s eye. He was there to comfort her after it came out that one of the guys on the show actually had a girlfriend. He seemed like the perfect guy. At least until episode two. That’s when it all started going downhill. And from there, he’s just continued to spiral.

He’s made an enemy out of almost every other guy on the cast. He has outright lied, and he’s even been possessive towards Brown. Parker is basically what would happen if production were able to create a villain in a lab.

Why is Parker the most prominent villain?

Parker has taken up so much of the season with his antics that he has been dubbed the most prominent villain by host Chris Harrison.

“We’ve never had a season where a villain — if you want to call Luke that — has such a prominent role, where they really dominate the landscape and storyline for so long,” he told Entertainment Tonight. “Hannah likes Luke P., and the more he gets beat on and she gets beat on, the more defensive and angry she gets.”

His actions have partially taken the romance out of the show for Brown.

“When she walks in [to the room with guys] in Scotland, she felt like the mom of these children who are just bickering. She feels like they’re not diving into her, and it’s really driving her nuts,” Harrison continued.

Why is Parker featured so much?

The way that Parker behaves obviously has rubbed the rest of the men the wrong way. But the constant attention that they give him has caused the show to focus on Parker way more than needed.

“But the guys just can’t stand him,” Harrison said. “This is oil and water… but there’s something there driving these guys crazy, because they know Hannah likes him and is defending him, and they think he’s fake and phony and it drives them nuts that they can’t make Hannah see that.”

“Maybe it’s a little immaturity and lack of perspective by some of these young men to realize the more you try and make it about Luke P., the more it becomes about Luke P.,” Harrison told the outlet. “These guys, whether they knew it or not, were the ones really driving the bus towards Luke P.”

Does Brown realize that Parker is a villain?

Though it took her a while, Brown is finally starting to see some cracks in Parker’s armor. When she took him on her one-on-one date, she was thoroughly unimpressed with him and tried to get to the bottom of why he acts the way that he does.

Instead of giving her a straight forward answer, he showered her with compliments, which just continued to turn Brown off and resulted in her not giving him a rose.https://www.cheatsheet.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/Chris-Harrison.jpg
