Hannah Brown has made a few things clear on this season of The Bachelorette.
She loves sex. She loves God. And, for reasons many viewers don’t comprehend, she isn’t scared off by how intensely suitor Luke Parker loves her.
Despite having some questions about Parker and his stalker-like tendencies on the show this season, Hannah has kept the controversial contestant around.
Will he actually go on to win her heart and the entire thing later this summer?
Not if he really is the one who ends up slut-shaming Hannah due to her very open views on spit swapping and sexual intercourse.
“My faith is really important, and some people question that, but like I said, I don’t hold anything back, and part of a relationship is being sexually attracted to somebody,” Brown told reporters this week, adding at a red carpet event:
"I am sexually attracted to these men, and I’m not going to hold back on that."
Translation: Hannah is gonna get herself some D, you guys!
This is perfectly within her rights as a Bachelorette and, heck, a human being of course.
The series even sets up its leads with Fantasy Suites created for the exact purpose of boning one’s potential spouse.
According to various Bachelorette spoilers, however, Parker will advance to the final four this year, only to be given the boot by Hannah because he tries to make her feel guilty for sleeping with his fellow suitors.
Is this what actually takes place?
Chris Harrison hinted as much.
"Faith is what brought them together and his faith and his conservative values might be their biggest sticking point and become the biggest divide between them," Harriston told ET this week about Brown and Parker, adding:
"We are setting something up down the road that will come to a head, where their faith and their values start to conflict, and how they perceive them."
Parker has said previously that he was basically a major player in college… but then God spoke to him in the shower one day and told him to stop messing around and start getting serious about having a family.
This is what Parker has said.
So we guess it might make some sense that he would take issue with Hannah taking advantage of the many hot men vying for her attention — but not really, of course.
She can do whatever she wants.
"That’s always the interesting thing about religion, and I always feel maybe we need to dive into this more sometimes," Harrison also told ET.
"Sometimes we shy away from it because religion, it’s a little bit like sex, where it’s taboo to discuss in the open."
"I think it needs to be brought in the open more sometimes, and, in this case, it’s interesting how they have very similar values, but very differing opinions on how to apply them to life."
In a promo for The Bachelorette Season 15 this spring, we heard Hannah going off on an unknown suitor.
“I cannot believe you just said that to me,” she says to this person. “I don’t owe you anything at this point. Do you not understand that?”
She adds in this same teaser:
“I believe that sex was made for a man and a woman in marriage, but I’m having physical relationships and honestly, I have had sex. And Jesus still loves me.
"How dare I be judged by a man?"
That’s a good question. We wonder if Luke Parker has an answer.
