‘The Bachelorette’: Even Luke P.’s Family Doesn’t Think He Should Still be on the Show
Hometowns are a special time in the Bachelorette world. It’s the night when we finally get to view where the contestants came from and it’s the first opportunity to see who the men really are and how they act outside of the Bachelorette bubble.
Tonight, we will get to watch Hannah Brown head to four hometowns.
She’ll be going to Westlake Village, California to see Peter Weber, Gainesville, Georgia to meet Luke Parker’s family, Jupiter, Florida for Tyler Cameron, and Knoxville, Tennessee for Jed Wyatt.
Do the hometowns go well?
Hometowns are a great time for the lead of the show to get clarity on their relationship with the final few contestants. Visiting their families either solidifies the bond that the Bachelorette has with the men or shows her that the relationship could never work in the long run.
“I’m falling for all four men in different ways,” Brown, says in the promo for this week’s episode. “I don’t have clarity.”
But according to the previews, these hometown dates don’t give her the answers she was looking for.
“Hannah heads to hometowns, but the search for answers leads to more questions, surprises, and a decision like we’ve never seen in Bachelorette history,” a voiceover says in the promo.
How does Luke Parker’s hometown go?
Every season of The Bachelorette has a villain. And this go around, that person is undoubtedly Luke Parker. From day one, he made the show about himself and manipulated his way into Brown’s heart. Despite almost everyone in the house trying to warn her about Parker, the former beauty queen has kept him around for reasons that no one can understand.
And according to a preview obtained by Entertainment Weekly, even Parker’s family doesn’t get why he is still there.
In the clip, Brown tells Parker’s family that things between them were going great…until they weren’t.
“It was like Luke against… basically, I feel like the rest of the house,” she says. She then tells them that it got so bad that all she and Parker could talk about was the drama between him and the other contestants.
“I felt like I was walking on eggshells,” Luke says. “I felt like I had to say and do all the right things, which is obviously the worst mindset.”
Instead of commending Brown and Parker for making it through their rough patch or saying anything remotely supportive, one of Parker’s family members asks the question that all of Bachelor Nation has been needing to be answered.
“So why is he here?” the man asks.
“I don’t know,” Brown says, laughing uncomfortably.
Neither do we, Hannah, neither do we.
And we all know that Parker’s time on the show goes downhill after that as the infamous “I had sex and Jesus still loves me” scene hasn’t happened yet.
“So, let’s talk about sex, and let’s say you have had sex with one or multiple of these guys,” Parker says in a preview of the scene. “I’d completely remove myself from this relationship.”
“My husband would never say what you’ve said to me,” Brown says in response to his demands. “I have had sex. And honestly, Jesus still loves me. From obviously how you feel, me f–king in a windmill, you probably wanna leave.”
The Bachelorette airs on Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
