Luke’s ‘Men Tell All’ Interview Got His Former ‘Bachelorette’ Co-Stars Heated

Luke P. will likely go down in Bachelor Nation history as one of the franchise’s worst villains. He spent nearly his entire time on Hannah’s season of The Bachelorette fighting with all the other guys in the mansion, and his time with Hannah wasn’t much better. But somehow, Luke P. made it all the way to be among the final four guys. He might have made it even further had he not shamed Hannah for her Fantasy Suite dates. But, Luke P. as eliminated in Greece, after having made a whole lot of enemies. That wasn’t the end of him though. Luke P.’s "Men Tell All" interview gave him the chance to explain more, and it got his former Bachelorette co-stars pretty heated.

Luke P. was the first to appear on "Men Tell All," and right from the start, he received a very cold welcome from the in-studio audience. He said that he had only been looking for clarity or closure from Hannah, and that’s why he returned to Greece to ask for a second chance. But, he continued to defend his actions and said that he even still loves her.

Earlier on July 22, Luke P. addressed his experience on The Bachelorette in an Instagram post. He wrote:

I want you all to know why I went on this TV show and why I went back for @alabamahannah after she sent me home. I never wanted to go on the show to begin with, my sister in law @hleaparker22 signed me up and I kept an open mind. Going through the interview process I watched Colton’s season and a beautiful southern girl stood out to me during the intro videos. She told the cameras she respected Colton’s virginity and that it was super appealing to her that he was a virgin, and was the bachelor because sex was a big deal to her. I saw her Instagram and in her bio read “I love Jesus with my whole heart”, I was sold and if I was going on this TV show it was for her. I also noticed she told Colton how she wanted to be a wife of Noble character. I knew she was quoting Proverbs 31 which gave me the impression there is a way God could use this show… yes, even the “Bachelorette” as a way to bring him Glory. The first night I made her a Proverbs 31 bracelet then explained to her that I noticed what she said to Colton and I knew where it came from and how important my faith was to me. Shortly after that, I get the first impression rose. On my hometown date I brought Hannah to a bible study with my college church group, where I shared my story of how God transformed my life and gave me a desire to live my life for him in obedience, that included waiting until marriage for sex. Hannah on the date, stands up and tells the group her story of how she was convicted to live a life in pursuit of Jesus. She also told them that she wasn’t going to use the fantasy suites for sex but for conversation, no matter how @abcnetwork made it look. I had to go back and fight for her, I believed in my heart she was making the biggest mistake of her life based on what she was telling me, I wanted her to know that we could get through this and I was here for her. #thebachelorette

Luke P.’s private interview time got interrupted by one of the guys who was so upset by him that he couldn’t even wait to explain how he was being misogynistic . Devin raced out and said to Luke P., "I feel that you are the man that wants to control a woman so that you can feel better about yourself. I’m sorry but that’s not a man."

Luke P. said that he wasn’t there to argue, but of course there were a few more fights once all the guys came out. Luke P. said that he thought there was a target on his back because he was the frontrunner, but the rest of the guys said that his negative actions throughout the season speak for themselves.

"You are a narcissistic, cantankerous, misogynist," Mike said. "Your future wife is going to be a prisoner of you if you don’t change."

Season 15 of The Bachelorette concludes with a two-night finale at 8 p.m. ET on Monday, July 29, and Tuesday, July 30, on ABC.
