“I’m just like really defeated from all of you, so I don’t want to do this,” Hannah Brown weeps in the preview trailer for Monday’s all-new episode of “The Bachelorette” Season 15 (watch above). Her outburst likely stems from all of the recent Luke Parker drama, in which the 24-year-old import/export manager from Gainesville, Georgia body-slammed Luke Stone, prompting him to quit the competition. Hannah tried to give Luke P. another chance by inviting him on a one-on-one date, but she surprised him by refusing to give him a rose.
Franchise host Chris Harrison acts as a shoulder for Hannah to cry on in the video, telling her, “I need to know that you’re still in this and you’re capable of being in this.” She doesn’t respond right away but simply stares at him with puffy eyes. Is this former Miss Alabama USA really thinking about quitting the reality TV show that’s made her a household name?
A man’s voice is then heard declaring, “It’s my fault. I hope that she forgives me.” We then see a shot of a scruffy Luke P. sitting at a church altar, hands crossed, praying silently. Does Luke P. actually still have a shot at winning Hannah’s heart, or is this the ultimate tease?
In our recent poll only 7% of “Bachelorette” fans voted that they wanted Hannah to ultimately choose Luke P. as her Mr. Right. Those poll results put him in fifth place behind Tyler Cameron (39%), Peter Weber (23%), Jed Wyatt (14%) and Connor Saeli (8%). However, it’s worth noting that this season’s apparent villain has a massive backing on social media with one fan, Tammyjo Anderson, even writing, “I truly believe Hannah should be with Luke P. He is the Best Man for her. Not only is he the best looking one on the show, but he also shows his masculine side very well.”
Find out whether Hannah really quits “The Bachelorette” when the new episode airs Monday, June 17 on ABC. As of this writing there are still 12 suitors left in the competition, so get ready for more cuts as the season continues.
