Luke, a 24-year-old import/export manager from Gainesville, GA, came out of the gate on The Bachelorette's fifteenth season very strong, as he won the First Impression Rose and was crowned "Mr. Right" during a beauty-pageant inspired group date.
But in Hannah's eyes, Luke's confidence quickly turned into a cocky arrogance, and she asked him to shape up and change his behavior during the latest The Bachelorette episode.
After Monday night's broadcast aired, Luke took to Instagram on Tuesday to "address the elephant in the room."
"First I want you all to know how hard it has been for me to watch myself this season so far. Regardless of what is aired AND IF @alabamahannah and I are together or not my behavior in all situations has been and will continue to be exposed," Luke captioned a photo of Hannah and himself enjoying each other's company on a date.
Luke continued to explain how his negative portrayal on the show isn't breaking him and he's going to be a better man as a result of his time on The Bachelorette.
"I have learned a lot and I am continuing to learn about my flaws as a man. I'm the first to admit I am far from perfect. This journey has giving me a great opportunity to grow and mature as a man, for that I am grateful," Luke explained.
"For those of you who are on this journey with me I am grateful for your support and hope you get to learn and grow from my mistakes with me!"
In the latest episode of The Bachelorette, Luke interrupted Hannah's conversations with other men when she wanted to get to know his competition better. He also chased her down to talk when she needed some time to herself.
"He doesn't have to be beside me the whole time to know that we're good. We're good. I need him to slow his roll; he is not guaranteed this," Hannah said in a confessional.
"I have a lot of other relationships that are really great too, but I don't think he gets it."
Not only has Luke been aggressive in his pursuit of Hannah, but he also tends to show off his muscles at every opportunity and brag in confessionals about how his fellow bachelors don't stand a chance of becoming Hannah's future husband.
"It's annoying when Luke P., like, tries to flaunt our connection in front of the guys," Hannah said during Monday night's episode.
"There have just been some little red flags about how he carries himself that bothers me a little bit. It's like this fine line that I really think is attractive to, like, it's the most unattractive thing I've seen in my life."
Hannah shut Luke down multiple times in The Bachelorette broadcast by rejecting alone time with him and demanding that she wants to be the one to "call the shots."
