Interested in learning more about first impression rose winner Luke Parker? Here are a few fast facts to get you by until the next episode.

It would take a blind man to miss all of the moves Luke Parker was putting on last night on The Bachelorette premiere. He came ready with a Hannah Beast roar, which immediately won over our pageant queen and kept her coming back for more. When Scott made his unceremonious exit, Luke was there with a comforting arm and a smooth line. He had a steamy makeout sesh with Hannah and, after all his work, he took home that coveted first impression rose.

As some viewers pointed out on Twitter, it was as if Luke Parker had analyzed every single episode of The Bachelorette and come up with the perfect formula to win. Unfortunately for him, while this tactic won over Hannah, the rest of us were a little skeptical to say the least.

So who is Luke Parker, the mysterious Georgia boy who really wants you to know he was good looking in college? We dug through the internet to collect some trivia.

He’s all in with his message

Take a quick look at Luke’s Instagram and you’ll see basically his Bachelorette intro video 2.0 plastered all over. His bio literally reads, “Jesus + Nothing = Everything || Philippians 4:13 💪😎👍”

He also has several Christian-oriented pictures and more than a few of him holding babies. The guy has a strong brand and—so far—it seems to be working with Hannah Brown.

All weights, all the time

In a separate post, we questioned whether Luke Parker’s choice to start his intro video with some gym time was really the best way to represent himself. The move came off as a little vain and shallow. Take a quick look at his Insta, though, and you’ll see that this really is what Luke is all about. He constantly posts workout pics.

. . . including this gnarly sweat pic. Yuck.

An inspired journey

Not too long ago, we reported that Luke Parker’s family felt his time on The Bachelorette was meant to be. Apparently Luke had his eye on Hannah Brown ever since her time on Colton’s season and he “didn’t really want to be on the show if it was anybody else other than (Brown).”

His family felt they would be a great fit together and that a relationship with Hannah on The Bachelorette could also help Luke to spread the gospel. Luke touched on this story during his intro video, but we’re curious to see if we’ll get more on that later in the season.

He’s a dog guy

For all our skepticism of Luke Parker’s motives, though, he does have one truly outstanding quality: he’s a dog lover! Luke’s Instagram has plenty of pics of him with his adorable pooch, Champ.

Hannah Brown also loves animals. This could be another way for them to connect. Fingers crossed (as always) that we’ll see a pup take the screen this season on The Bachelorette!
