Hannah tried to have a sit down with the two Lukes in order to get some sort of resolution. Unfortunately, the contestants just talked in circles and didn’t give any real clarity. The former beauty queen ended up leaving in the middle of the conversation.
“I came here because I wanted to fall in love with an amazing woman … It’s a shame I had to be involved with a man like you,” Luke S. snapped at Luke P. “It’s just lie after lie, manipulation after manipulation.” Luke P. claimed, “I’ve been doing my complete best to open and honest with her.”
Before she could hand out the first rose, Luke S. pulled her aside one more time. He decided to leave because he was over the drama. “Be wary. Keep your eyes open, alright?” the contestant pleaded before exiting.
Things were still awkward between Luke P. and the rest of the contestants. In particular, Jed was hitting his limit with the “Luke-ness monster.” The country music singer said during a private interview, “Everything single thing he says is changed and switched around … This isn’t about me throwing him under the bus, this is about Hannah and protecting her heart.”
Mike and Hannah definitely started to build a solid relationship. “Just know that I’m 31 years old. I’ve learned a lot of things in life, I’ve been around the world and I truly know who I am and what I want,” the confident contestant promised.
Their chemistry continued to grow and Mike was given the date rose. “Today you took giant steps to be open and vulnerable with me … That makes me very excited to continue to grow,” the Alabama beauty said.
The group date left Mike and Luke P. in the house together. When Luke discovered that he received a one-on-one date, he told the guys, “I really hope I find clarity about her.” However, he later denied saying that when Mike confronted him. Basically, it was just a lot of awkward silence.
Of course, most of the rough patches of the season have involved Luke P. so the two had a rocky conversation about it. Hannah was trying to understand why all the contestants seem to dislike him but the Florida native couldn’t give a sufficient answer.
Their initial connection left Hannah unsure on what to do on their fuzzy communication skills. “I would like to send him home like every other guy I was pissed at but I can’t … I can’t keep making excuses for him when I’m not doing that for anybody else,” Hannah confessed during a private interview.
Their miscommunication didn’t end at dinner. Hannah attempted to explain that she didn’t think he was being genuine. While Luke admitted that he was trying to “be perfect,” he still wasn’t able to break down his walls. His genuineness was questioned again after he gushed, “I love every single thing about you even your flaws.”
It came down to the date rose. “After today, I don’t feel good and I don’t know how I feel about you. All I want is to see Luke be Luke but it’s just not what I hoped for,” Hannah said while holding the symbolic flower. “Honestly, today was as worse as a day as gone for me.” Although week 5 ended with Hannah telling Luke, “I can’t give you this rose,” he was shown later in the teaser trailer so he’s here to stay. Time will tell the fate of this controversial contestant!
