After an unprecedented season of both on and off screen drama, season 15’s Men Tell All episode was just as crazy as fans expected!
The two-hour episode saw Hannah Brown face all of her eliminated contestants, including of course, controversial contestant Luke Parker who she finally sent packing after a season of red flags and problematic statements.
A clip showed the remainder of last week’s episodes where Hannah sent Luke P. packing after he shamed her for having sex with one of the other contestants. Instead of just leaving however, it turns out he returned to interrupt her rose ceremony — with a diamond ring in his pocket.
When Hannah saw him however she was not happy about his return. “This is not about your heart! F—! Leave! I’m so tired. You’re so narcissistic. It’s my this, my that. This is not about your heart. I’m sorry that your heart is broken, but you’ve already broken my heart like 15 times through all of this by me trying to make this work,” she said.
In the Men Tell All, Parker tried to explain himself to Harrison and said that during Hometown Dates, Hannah told him she wasn’t going to be having sex on the fantasy suite dates which is why he was so “blindsided” by her confession. “It wasn’t the fact that she had sex that would make me want to leave her,” he said. “I went in there because I felt like she was making a mistake. I really thought, no matter what, this is the one for me. I’ve never felt anything like this. If you’re wondering, these feelings were real and I know they were real for her. That’s why you see me say things like, ‘She has never told me she loves me, but I believe that she does.’”
“I felt like I was on a rescue mission for Hannah,” Parker said. “That’s how I look at it. Coming here, I really felt like I was going to be something good for her in a future husband. Granted, I’m talking about before ever meeting her. … Her faith was very exciting to me. I wasn’t even going to show up unless I had known that Hannah Brown was going to be the Bachelorette. I think, throughout the whole season, it was very clear I was there for her and that I was going to fight for her until the very end.” He also added an apology to the Bachelorette: “I just want to tell you one thing: I’m sorry. That’s it. I made it really hard on her.”
It turns out, the rest of the men watching from back stage were not fooled by Parker’s humble apology or explanation however. Devin Harris was so infuriated the took to the stage to interrupt Parker. “There are two types of men,” Harris said. “There are men that want an independent, strong woman. And there are men that want a woman that they can control. I feel right now that you are the man that wants to control a woman so that you can feel better about yourself.”
“That’s not a man,” he added. “What blows my mind is you’re saying that you’re on a rescue mission, but it seemed that the only person that needed rescuing was Hannah from you.
Mike Johnson also didn’t hold back when talking about Luke P., saying, “I feel that Luke hasn’t learned a thing whatsoever. I think that you are a narcissistic, cantankerous misogynist. I think that you are beyond cocky to the point to where you don’t care what no one else says. I feel that you were not fighting for her. … You were fighting over her. I think that your future wife is going to be a prisoner with you if you don’t know how to change.”
Connor Saeli also had something to say, ” You’re a liar, a manipulator, you’re controlling and you honestly are a psychopath. And I think everything you’re about to hear tonight you deserve.”
The two-part finale of The Bachelorette airs next Monday and Tuesday on ABC.
