Hannah Brown’s highly anticipated windmill moment will supposedly take place during tonight’s episode and viewers can’t wait. In addition to finding out who Brown ventures into a windmill with, Bachelorette fans are ecstatic to finally see the demise of controversial contestant Luke Parker.
As every Bachelorette fan knows, Parker seems to be sent home (and flipped off on his way out) after his conversation with Brown about sex and how she shouldn’t be having any.
“Let’s talk about sex, and how the marriage bed should be kept pure. Let’s say you have had sex with one or more of these guys, I’d be wanting to go home,” Parker tells a shocked Brown in the constantly teased preview.
“I don’t owe you anything. My husband would never say what you said to me. I have had sex and, honestly, Jesus still loves me,” she famously replies.
The clip has been so teased that it brings to mind a clip from Colton Underwood’s season of The Bachelor–the clip of Underwood hopping over an eight-foot fence, with ease, to escape into the night.
Hannah Brown’s windmill moment is this season’s ‘fence jump’
Recently, in an interview with ET, Underwood compared Brown’s windmill moment to his fence jump.
“I say what the fence was to me, the windmill is to Hannah. But talk about a bomb getting dropped! I’m here for all of it! I know it’s sort of polar opposite of what my take on my season was, but I think that’s what’s so cool about the Bachelor franchise, is everybody has their own twists to things,” he told ET, referring to the intense focus on his virginity during his season compared to the scrutiny surrounding Brown’s sexual openness.
“You either get scrutinized for not having sex or scrutinized for having too much. There is no middle ground,” he added.
‘Bachelor’ alums are happy the show is being more open about sex
Underwood says he’s glad Brown’s had the opportunity to explore the physical side of her relationships.
“I think it was just two completely different things, but if that’s what she was feeling was necessary for that relationship, then I’m glad that she got to do it,” he said. “Because sometimes with the show, you get your hands tied a little bit with the format of the show. And I’m glad to see that the format has sort of gone away. Let these relationships be what they are.”
Underwood isn’t the only former Bachelor to praise the franchise’s new approach when discussing sex. Nick Viall recently spoke with ET about Brown’s windmill moment and how he’s also happy to see the show progressing.
“I like that the show, each season, continues to be willing to show more authenticity and realness when it comes to some of these relationships,” Viall told ET. “I know, obviously, with my time on the show, when that discussion of sex came up, that was kind of new for the franchise, but they’ve done a good job of continuing to push the limits and bring those conversations as part of the show. Several years ago, there was no mention of sex or intimacy at all. And I think people are appreciating being able to see that as it goes on.”
