The 15th season of The Bachelorette has barely started filming but spoiler king Reality Steve already has a prediction for fans. He reports that filming for Hannah Brown’s season of the hit reality show started a few days after she was officially named as the next Bachelorette. The show has only filmed the first few episodes of the season so far and expect to wrap filming in late May.
Fans of the Bachelorette know the lead typically doesn’t meet her suitors until the limo arrivals in the premiere episode. However, Hannah met five of her 30 potential husbands during the Bachelor: After the Final Rose special. Following the limo arrivals, the bachelorette has a cocktail party with all the men vying for her attention. At the end of the night, she gives out a first impression rose.
Reality Steve recently revealed that Luke Parker gets the first impression rose from Hannah B. He was one of the five men she met the night of ATFR.
First Impression Rose Streak
The first impression rose can end up being very important or it can be a fluke. On previous seasons of The Bachelorette, three men who received the first impression rose also ended up getting the final rose, too. Becca Kufrin, Rachel Lindsay and JoJo Fletcher all gave the first impression rose to the men they ended up engaged to at the end. All three couples are still together. There were also a few in past season this happened to as well.
Shawn Booth also received the first impression rose from Kaitlyn Bristowe during her season of the show. While they ended up engaged at the end, they ultimately split last year. If Hannah ends up giving Luke the final rose, that will be the fifth season in a row where the recipient of the first impression rose also got the final rose.
So, Who is The Frontrunner?
It is still too early in the season for Reality Steve to have specific spoilers for what happens on each episode. He does report that they are currently filming in Rhode Island. According to Reality Steve, his sources say Luke is the frontrunner at this point. A lot of things can change between now and May when the season wraps.
(SPOILER): We’re only 4 episodes in, and obviously things can change, but from what I’m being told, Luke Parker is the front runner right now for Hannah to pick. Which, if happens, would be 5 seasons in a row that the first impression rose recipient ended up winning.

On almost every season of the Bachelor or Bachelorette, a contestant decides to leave on their own accord instead of waiting for the lead to send them home. Whether that happens this season is still up in the air, but there is always the chance Luke could leave the show before getting to the final rose ceremony.
Watch the premiere of Hannah’s season of The Bachelorette on May 13 on ABC.
