‘The Bachelorette’: Is This the Contestant That Shamed Hannah Brown for Having Sex?
Hannah Brown has proven that she is one to speak her mind. From sending a guy home on night one for having a girlfriend to calling Luke Parker out for trying to only say the right things, Brown has made it clear that she doesn’t put up with anyone’s mess.
So, when a guy apparently called her out for having sex before marriage despite her Christian views, Brown clapped back.
“I believe that sex was made for a man and a woman in marriage,” she said in the promo clip of the scene. “But I am having physical relationships. And honestly like, I have had sex, and Jesus still loves me. How dare I be judged by a man?”
“I don’t owe you anything at this point,” she said to whoever tried to call her out for having sex.
Who was the man in the clip?
Since the promo clip aired, people have been wondering which of the contestants would try to shame Brown for something like that.
Well, if the accusations are based on religion, the best guess may be Parker, as he and Brown have bonded over their religious backgrounds in the past. And the promo for this week’s episode showed Parker praying in a church.
On Friday, host Chris Harrison weighed in on the topic.
“We were in Scotland, there was a beautiful church just down the way, and he wanted to go see it and spend some time there and reflect and pray,” Harrison told Entertainment Tonight. “And we decided to include that [footage] because you will see as this show goes on, that’s a big part of him and what’s about to happen, and, whether you like it or not, that was a big part of the connection between Hannah and Luke.”
“She really liked his faith. She loved talking [about] religion with him and about God and about the Scriptures. That was a big part of their relationship and there were a lot of those conversations you didn’t get to see just because we don’t have time on the show. They bonded over that and that’s something she didn’t have with a lot of other guys.”
Does faith come in between Brown and Parker?
While the two were able to bond over having faith, religion is often on a spectrum. Just because you have faith doesn’t mean you hold every value that someone else of the same religion does.
“Ironically enough, faith is what brought them together and his faith and his conservative values might be their biggest sticking point and become the biggest divide between them.” Harrison continued. “Yes, obviously, we are setting something up down the road that will come to a head, where their faith and their values start to conflict, and how they perceive them.”
And depending on where you stand on the issue, you may feel more empathetic towards Parker than Brown.
“There’s going to be a lot of differing opinions,” Harrison said. “I think depending on where you are in the country, where your faith lies, what you believe… I think some people are going to be firmly on more, say, the Luke P. side of his conservative values and how he applies those, and I think a lot of people are really going to rally around Hannah.”
