‘The Bachelorette’ Contestant Luke Parker’s Early Love Confession Leaves Twitter in Shambles


Week 2 of Hannah Brown’s The Bachelorette journey sent Twitter into overdrive, thanks to Luke Parker’s surprising confession that he is already falling in love with the Alabama native. Yes, already.

During a group date on the Monday, May 20, episode of the ABC reality dating series, Luke, 24, shared his feelings for Hannah, also 24, while speaking on stage at a “Mr. Right” competition. “I can’t believe I’m saying this right now — this is so crazy because it’s so soon — but I can’t hide it. Hannah, I’m genuinely starting to fall in love with you,” he announced, much to the beauty pageant titleholder’s delight.

Hannah ended up crowning the import-export manager as the winner of the contest, but some viewers at home were taken aback by his early admission.

“Hannah: ‘Luke says he’s staring to fall in love with me, and I believe him.’ AYE HANNAH, LET ME SELL YOU TICKETS TO THIS AWESOME MUSIC FESTIVAL ON THIS ISLAND,” one fan tweeted, referencing the disastrous 2017 Fyre Festival.

Another member of Bachelor Nation uploaded a picture of a box filled with actual red flags. “Found a rare unseen before pic of Luke from #TheBachelorette,” the tweet read.

One concerned viewer jokingly compared Luke to Penn Badgley’s sociopath You character, Joe Goldberg, tweeting, “Is Luke P. using #TheBachelorette as his audition for #YOU season 2?”

Former Bachelor leads and contestants also weighed in. The Bachelorette season 14 favorite Connor Obrochta tweeted, “Who doesn’t believe one word Luke says” alongside a GIF of the Mean Girls cast raising their hands. The Bachelor season 21 star Nick Viall, meanwhile, wrote, “Luke P seems like the type of guy who is capable of being really s–ty and then defends his action by saying ‘Only God can judge me.’ Not true Luke, I’m judging you right now. Also, i hate your tie.”
