Against all odds, Luke Parker has survived another episode of The Bachelorette. While we low-key wanted to boycott the show, we’re starting to think the 24-year-old villain actually has a shot at securing Hannah Brown’s final rose.
Here, all the clues hinting that Luke P. wins season 15 of the popular dating series.
1. His #1 priority is Hannah
Drama aside, Luke has never strayed away from protecting Brown. While some of the other contestants—cough, Garrett, cough—became too distracted, Luke has consistently kept his eyes on the prize, and it hasn’t gone unnoticed.
2. The proof is in the promos
The promo for next week’s episode of The Bachelorette teased the highly anticipated hometown dates, along with scenes from the Fantasy Suites. While many viewers want Luke P. gone ASAP, the teaser showed a never-before-seen clip of Parker kissing Brown in what appears to be Greece.
Since the scene can’t possibly take place in his hometown of Gainesville, Georgia, chances are he makes it far longer than anyone anticipated.
3. They share similar beliefs
From day one, Luke hasn’t been shy about sharing his faith—just like Hannah. Brown values this quality, especially when she meets his family in next week’s episode. The promo features Luke and his family gathering in a prayer circle—a side the other contestants have yet to show.
“Luke really loves his faith. We’re on a good path,” Brown says in an interview with producers.
4. She clearly sees something in him
Despite the fact that everyone warned her about his true colors, Brown still sees Luke as a prime candidate for her future husband.
In a conversation with producers in episode five, Brown explains her decision to keep Luke, saying, “Luke P. is still here because my heart wants him to be here. My head doesn’t always want him to be here.”
5. He has defied all odds
After the season premiere aired on ABC, we’d be lying if we said that we thought he’d last more than a few episodes. Yet here we are.
Clearly, there’s something going on behind-the-scenes that they aren’t showing us, which is why we wouldn’t be surprised if Luke pulls a fast one and secures the final rose.
The Bachelorette airs on Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
