Inside The Times, ep. 35: Luke Parker and ‘The Bachelorette’

April 23, 2019

Luke Parker, Hall County’s resident ‘Bachelorette’ contestant, is crushing it on the reality show. SPOILERS: He and bachelorette Hannah Brown visited Gainesville and Oakwood for a hometown date over the weekend, hitting the Gainesville square and Curt’s Cafeteria in Oakwood.

If you’re wondering why that’s a big deal, that means Luke is one of the last four contestants still vying to put a ring on it this season.

Taking a break from shootings, thefts, drug busts and the rest of the bad news people need to know, the gang this week talks about Luke’s background and a tip that led Layne and photographer Austin on a stakeout mission at Curt’s.

Shannon, Layne and Nick also discuss the big question: Will Luke win Hannah’s heart? At the moment, Layne gives him a 1-in-4 chance.
