Up next, Brown and the men travel to Newport, Rhode Island, where she invites 13 contestants—Luke S., Luke P., Matteo, Grant, Garrett, Kevin, John Paul Jones, Devin, Connor, Dustin, Peter, Mike and Dylan—on the group date.
When they arrive at Fort Adam, home of the champion Newport Rugby Football Club, it’s clear where this is heading: a competitive rugby match.
After splitting into two teams, the men face off against each other, and brutal is an understatement. Not only does John Paul Jones take several nasty spills, but Kevin also gets sent to the hospital with a shoulder injury, so there’s that.
At the after party, Luke S. is still pissed about the rugby match, considering Luke P. was unnecessarily aggressive. (Surprise, surprise.) When Luke P. pulls her aside, he delivers a sob story about how Luke S. “came after” him on the field.
Shortly after, Brown pulls Luke S. aside and demands to know what happened, and he doesn’t hold anything back. When she asks if the other men feel the same way, Luke S. confirms that Luke P. is the bully of the house.
“When it comes to my relationship with Hannah, I’ll never quit on her,” Luke P. tells the producers.
Cut to a montage of the other contestants telling Brown how they really feel about Luke P. Dazed and confused, Brown gives the rose to Garrett.
