The Bachelorette Recap: How Did Hannah Make History?

by at .  Updated at .

She did it, folks!

Hannah Brown defied the odds, stared history in the face on Monday night and did something no other Bachelorette in history has ever done before.

Tragically, no, we don't mean she punched Luke P. in the face. The Bachelorette spoilers would've told us that weeks ago.

But Brown did visit the hometowns of four suitors, prompting Tyler to say some pretty heavy stuff about the Alabama native while the two were visiting his folks in Florida.

“One day I’ll be able to say ‘I love you,’ and I do believe that I’ll be able to stand 100 percent behind it,” the 26-year old said in an on-camera interview after a successful visit with his relatives.

This was very sweet and seemed very sincere -- but it still paled in emotional comparison to what Jed (THE CHEATER) and Luke (THE SEXIST PIG) told Hannah.

During his hometown date in Georgia, Luke took Hannah to Sunday school... where he once again  relayed the story about how he found Jesus in the shower.

“I was starting to experiment with things like partying and drinking and things that I knew that I shouldn’t be involved with,” the 24-year old explained of his high school years while speaking to a group of young adults from his church.

“And college, it was just crazy. I was chasing sex and I was entangled and caught up in sin of all kinds.”

Chasing sex in college?!? For major shame, dude.

Hannah, who has told off Luke on multiple occasions for the way he has slut and sex-shamed her, appreciated how Parker stuck to these convictions.

“It’s cool to see that Luke really lives his faith,” she said.

From there, Luke took the ex-pageant queen to meet his mother, father, brother, sister-in-law and grandparents.

Neither Brown nor Parker attempted to hide the struggles of their relationship while talking to his family, with the latter admitting that confessing his love after about a half hour caused things to go "downhill" between the pair.

“Sometimes it was like he thought he had it in the bag and it was really frustrating, ‘cause it came across as a little arrogant,” she candidly said of Luke.

Making it evidence that Luke's intense apple didn't fall far from his father's tree, Luke's dad said he totally saw the future "Mrs. Parker" when looking at Hannah -- which is also sort of sexist when you think about it.

But this caused Luke to open way up to his potential wife once more, as he poured it on very thick as follows:

I know that we have struggled. I have put you through a struggle through all of this and I have struggled just completely letting go and I just want to tell you that I am sorry.

We are finally back on track but I know that there still may be concerns that you have about us being able to get where we need to be.

I’m going to continue just to show you who I am. [I] without a doubt I see a future with you. Without a doubt looking in your eyes, I feel like I am looking at my future wife.

And without a doubt I can tell you that I do love you.

Luke P.

Hannah's response?

"I’m falling in love with Luke."

Damn, girl.

How would Jed top this during his hometown date in Tennessee?

By declaring his own love for Hannah early on, that's how.

The reality stars started off in Knoxville, where Jed - who allegedly had a girlfriend during his time on the show, remember! -  tried to win over Hannah via his music skills.

They wrote and performed their own original song in a recording studio... and he ended their time together by declaring, “I love you. I can feel it.”

Hannah told the camera later that she was "falling in love" with Jed as well.

However, when Hannah met Jed’s family, his mother, Gina, expressed concern that Brown went around sharing that feeling with all of her suitors, to which Hannah replied that this wasn't the case.

“I wouldn’t have felt that way before just because he’s a musician,” Gina told Hannah of whether she felt Jed is ready for marriage, adding:

“You don’t get a diploma to be a musician. So, I mean, Jed’s had to have jobs and try to create time and space to do his music. It’s his heart and his soul. He couldn’t go to work and do music, so his path is different.

"It’s very different.”

Jed's sister agreed that him falling for Hannah could ruin his music career, which was an odd twist and weird thing to say to The Bachelorette.

This made it very confusing for Hannah to decide what to do at the Rose Ceremony.

“I was hoping that hometowns would give me clarity, but my heart is still open to each relationship and doesn’t feel confident in closing the door,” Hannah said in an on-camera interview.

Still, Tyler and Peter earned a flower right away -- only for Hannah to duck away before figuring out the fates of Jed (THE CHEATER) and Luke (THE SEXIST PIG).

“I can’t make a decision,” Hannah claimed to host Chris Harrison.

“I don’t know what to do. I have four great men and I can look at a life with each of them, but I don’t know if I’ve had time to know who my person is because I need more time.

"I want to dive in and I don’t feel like I’m diving in the way I could with any of the relationships.”

How did Harrison help Hannah solve this dilemma?

By giving her the first-ever extra rose! She was permitted to keep all four men around leading into next Monday's episode fantasy suite episode!

“It feels like it was really hard for her to make a decision between me and somebody who’s been a complete scumbag through this whole process,” Jed told the camera.

“I don’t want to be in the same category or even close to the same category as him," he added of Luke.

"He’s been a constant toxin through every bit of this. And to feel like a tossup between me and him now, I don’t know. As of right now, I am so unsure about all this.”

And yet... we're pretty sure he'll gladly get it on with Hannah next week.
