The most recent episode of Hannah Brown’s season of The Bachelorette was action-packed, to say the least. The men suited up for a rugby match and Hannah B. cheered everyone on from the sidelines, along with a huge crowd of excited spectators repping both teams’ colors.
From the beginning of the group date, we could tell this rugby match was going to get a little rough.
“I’m giving it all I got for Hannah. I refuse to quit. I’ll never quit on her. I think it’s important to show Hannah that I’m willing to fight for her in this relationship,” Luke P. told the camera, very seriously.
Going into the game, contestant John Paul Jones knew Luke P. was going to get rowdy.
“Luke P. is a pretty intense guy and I know he’s been going through a little bit of a rough patch with Hannah recently. So, I think he’s going to try pretty hard to prove himself,” John Paul Jones told ET. “So, I think he might be the most rough on the field, but I would say I’ll be the most intense.”
And rough he was. Luke P. was accused of body slamming Luke S. and Luke S. used the remainder of the episode to make sure everybody knew about it.
Hannah Brown’s top contenders as of the rugby game
ET also spoke to Hannah B. on the field about who her top suitors were at this stage in the game. A couple names came to mind.
“I had a one-on-one with Jed yesterday and we had a great time,” she said. “I also have really enjoyed Connor S. We’ve had some time together. And there’s a few other ones that are really up there, too.”
She continued: “Those are two that I’ve had more time with and really got to know their hearts so I’m really excited about continuing on with them. And then there are a few other men here who I’m really interested to get to know more about and spend more time with.”
When ET’s Lauren Zima brought up that she noticed Hannah B. talking to Connor, Hannah B. had this to say for herself:
“Connor’s great. He’s obviously very handsome, but he’s so sweet and comforting to me. I really like Connor–excited for him.”
ET’s correspondent also noticed Hannah B. talking to Luke P. quite a bit, despite their bit of drama last episode (Hannah B. had to tell Luke P. to give her some space so she could form connections with other contestants).
“Luke P. has always definitely shown that he’s here for me so we always have good conversations throughout the day,” said Hannah B. “Also really excited about that relationship, too.”
This was before the Luke P. vs. Luke S. drama, so we’ll have to wait until next week to see if Hannah B. is still “really excited” about her relationship with Luke P., or if Luke S. will successfully get his message across.
