Hannah Brown Defends Her Attraction to Luke P. on ‘The Bachelorette’

Hannah Brown is finally opening up about why she’s so attracted to Luke Parker on The Bachelorette, and damn, he’s a charmer.

The 24-year-old reality star recently appeared on an episode of former Bachelor Nick Viall’s podcast, The Viall Files. Since Viall isn’t a fan of Luke P., he pressed Brown on her decision to keep him around far longer than anyone anticipated.

This prompted the Bachelorette to explain that she sees something in Luke that the other contestants don’t have. “He is a spark of something that I can see,” she said. “He’s, like, the brightest light out there, and I don’t know if the light is like a ‘do not come here’ caution light, or like the beacon. He shines, he’s the brightest thing that’s attracting me right now.”

Brown went on to say that the show brings out the worst in people, which is why she doesn’t judge him for acting out. She continued, “I think a lot of times in this, not just with Luke but with a lot of the guys, I try to give them the benefit of the doubt of, like, the weird that we’re in.”

She revealed that this is the reason she keeps giving Luke another chance, adding, “This is so hard, and like, ‘Hey, you’re kind of coming off like this, do you want to come off like this? Because this is what you’re actually doing… So, are you crazy or not? I’m gonna let you have another chance to see if you’re actually crazy.’”

So, will Luke prove that he’s actually a good guy? We highly doubt it. The Bachelorette returns to ABC next Tuesday, June 11, at 8 p.m.
