It also features Bachelorette spoilers that reveal whether Hannah is engaged and who she ended up with].
The Bachelorette journey is getting pretty serious for Hannah at this point, as most of the men left in the running for her heart seem to have established solid connections with the Alabama beauty queen.
The show's seventh episode is coming up on Monday, June 24 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC, and Hannah will have more difficult decisions to make.
The Bachelorette's fifteenth season began filming on March 16, and cameras stopped rolling just a few days before it debuted May 13 on ABC.
After Hannah returned home from filming The Bachelorette in May, she wrote on social media, "This experience has been something else. I am beyond grateful, but dang somebody should have warned me that dating 30 men ain't easy!"
Hannah's season was clearly filled with drama -- and according to previews, there is still a lot more to come on TV -- so she admitted in May she needed to "recover" from the experience as a whole.
In last week's The Bachelorette episode, Hannah nearly quit the process because her guys were more focused on fighting each other than they were on getting to know Hannah better and asking her questions about her life and plans for the future.
That meant Hannah eliminated Devin Harris, Grant Eckel and Kevin Fortenberry at the season's fifth Rose Ceremony (although viewers will reportedly be seeing Kevin on Bachelor in Paradise again in August).
Hannah and her nine remaining bachelors were then shown traveling to Latvia, a northern European country steeped in history.
Hannah was looking forward to continuing the next step of her journey with a round of dates in Riga, the country's capital city, but before she was able to enjoy herself, she broke down to Chris Harrison.
Hannah had a meltdown and said she wasn't in a good place and wasn't sure if she could continue to open up, be vulnerable, and trust her guys.
After gathering the courage and optimism to move forward, Hannah went on to enjoy two one-on-one dates and a group date during her time in Latvia, according to ABC.
"One handsome suitor, who has been crushing hard on Hannah, is awarded the first one-on-one date," ABC teased in a press release about the upcoming The Bachelorette episode.
"It turns out to be a heart-stopping but liberating experience as the couple bungee jump wearing little clothing; however, when the man kisses and tells about his lusty date, how will the other men react?"
A season-preview trailer that aired after The Bachelorette's sixth episode showed Garrett is the lucky guy who received the nearly-naked bungee jumping date.
According to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone, Hannah and Garrett's jump took place in the town of Sigulda and Garrett received a rose at the end of the date.
The Bachelorette viewers have already witnessed a glimpse of Peter's date because it had been teased in a preview trailer for the season. It apparently included a romantic fireworks display as well as some steamy hot tub time.
The date reportedly went great, because Carbone claims Peter received a rose at the end of it.
However, that apparently wasn't the end to Hannah's adventures in Latvia.
"Another man surprises Hannah with a late-night visit to proclaim his feelings for her. But before the Rose Ceremony, the Bachelorette is all business and needs to clarify what she expects in a future soul mate," ABC teases.
At the Rose Ceremony in Latvia, Hannah reportedly ousted Dustin and Dylan from the competition.
After the Netherlands' eliminations, Hannah traveled to different hometowns to visit her Final 4 bachelors and their families.
Hannah's Final 4 suitors were reportedly Jed, a 25-year-old from Nashville, TN; Luke P., a 24-year-old from Gainesville, GA; Peter, a 27-year-old from Westlake Village, CA; and Tyler C., a 26-year-old from Jupiter, FL.
Carbone claimed the men's hometown dates began with Luke's family visit in Georgia on April 20.
Tyler's date reportedly followed on April 22 in Florida, and then Jed introduced Hannah to his family on April 24 in Tennessee.
Finally, Peter's hometown allegedly taped on April 26 in California.
Carbone initially tweeted on May 7 that Luke finished the season in third place and was eliminated after Hannah's three overnight dates.
But after gathering new information from his sources, Carbone revealed on May 11 his initial spoiler was wrong and Luke actually got sent home in fourth place.
Carbone had previously speculated The Bachelorette producers attempted to prevent spoilers for this 2019 season by flying the fourth-place bachelor to Greece (where the season's overnight Fantasy Suite dates took place) with the remaining bachelors and production team to keep him out of the public eye.
This move would have prevented the fourth-place finisher from going on social media upon returning home and accidentally revealing his placement.
Carbone therefore wasn't sure which guy went home in fourth place, but he assumed Luke had "definitely made the Final 3" because photos and videos of Luke and Hannah enjoying a one-on-one date in Greece had surfaced on the Internet in early May.
But according to Carbone's May 20 blog posting, what actually happened was Hannah couldn't choose between her Final 4 suitors so she just opted to eliminate no one.
Hannah's decision to not eliminate anyone after the hometown dates meant all four remaining bachelors traveled to Greece and were expected to receive overnight dates with Hannah even though a typical The Bachelorette season only features three overnight Fantasy Suite dates.
However, Luke's overnight date -- which was the last one to take place -- was a bust, according to Carbone.
"On [Luke Parker's] overnight, something happened, [and] she sent Luke home before the actual overnight portion. So Luke is actually [No. 4]," Carbone tweeted.
As shown in an extended season trailer that aired following Episode 6 of The Bachelorette, Luke apparently sex shames Hannah on their date.
In the Season 15 trailer for The Bachelorette, Luke was shown sitting down with Hannah and proceeding to tell her that if she had sex with other bachelors, he wouldn't be interested in pursuing their relationship any further.
Luke broached the conversation about intimacy in a very blunt and direct manner, which Hannah seemed to appreciate at first.
"Let's talk about sex," Luke said before flashing Hannah a huge smile while the pair appeared to be at dinner.
"Okay," Hannah noted, also smiling big.
"And how marriage and the bed should be kept pure," Luke said in the clip. "Let's say you have had sex with one or multiple of these guys, I would be wanting to go home."
Hannah subsequently vented in apparent interview, "You don't get to decide what I can and can't do because you don't own me."
Hannah then appeared to yell at Luke at the dinner table, "Oh my God, I can't believe you just said that! I'm so mad! I don't owe you anything!... My husband would never say what you said to me."
Afterward, Hannah proceeded to open the door to a black van for Luke, clearly wishing she could just shove him inside.
As the van left, also Hannah flipped Luke her middle finger.
"I believe sex was made for a man and a woman in marriage, but I am having physical relationships, so like, I have had sex. And honestly, Jesus still loves me!" Hannah said in the preview.
"The Lord made sex to be amazing. And guess what? A man does not control anything that I do. This is my decision!"
According to Carbone, Luke had the fourth overnight date with Hannah and he'd have been "naive" to think she didn't have sex with any of her other three bachelors beforehand.
"If she did, that's perfectly normal and she has every right to," Carbone wrote in his May 20 blog post.
"Because we don't know how the conversation played out (we only heard voiceover and snippets from it), it's impossible to know exactly how the topic of sex with the other guy(s) on the overnights came up," he continued.
"Did Luke straight up ask her if she did? Did Hannah say something to the effect of, 'Well what would you think if I did?' Whatever the case was, Hannah was not pleased with Luke's response to it."
But Luke's mid-date departure in a van still wasn't the end of Luke. He reportedly returned and made an appearance at the subsequent Rose Ceremony.
"Luke shows up to the final 3 rose ceremony to talk to [Hannah], but nothing changes," Carbone reported.
The extended season trailer that aired at the end of Episode 6 showed Chris Harrison appearing to come to Hannah before a Rose Ceremony and tell her one of her eliminated bachelors had returned with an engagement ring and intended to propose to The Bachelorette star.
"This is gonna change everything, because he went out and got a ring, he demanded to see you -- he is fully convinced that you are his wife, that you are The One," The Bachelorette host told Hannah.
"He has a ring in his pocket right now... he is ready to propose to you."
Hannah was then shown crying and saying she was "obviously struggling."
"Things would have been so different if he wasn't here," she said.
According to Carbone, the returning bachelor was Luke, however viewers should not expect to ever see an actual engagement ring when The Bachelorette episode airs on ABC.
Nor, Carbone claims, did Luke go out and get a ring on his own as Chris is shown suggesting to Hannah.
"The person Chris is referring to is Luke P.," Carbone wrote in a June 18 blog posting.
"Chris' convo with Hannah is about Luke, but it's very shady in how itâ€™s presented. All I can tell you is that you'll never see a ring, no ring was ever bought by Luke, he was given a ring by production for God knows what reason, but he never proposes to Hannah."
"Luke comes back to talk to Hannah the next day after she lets him go during their overnight date, but it goes nowhere, he never proposes, and she still sends him home. The preview was very misleading, per usual."
After Luke -- who had received Hannah's First Impression Rose -- was eliminated, Hannah then reportedly cut Peter at the subsequent Rose Ceremony, which filmed on May 5.
Carbone now claims Hannah picked Jed and Hannah and Jed got engaged at the season's final Rose Ceremony.
"Basically every season I post the spoiler, at some point during the next few months someone will tell me the spoiler is wrong and they're hearing different. Sometimes they're right, sometimes my initial spoiler is right. This year has been no different. [Three] weeks ago I started hearing that Hannah was with Jed and not Tyler," Carbone wrote in his June 18 blog posting.
"Started looking into it, and [on June 4]... I got the most interesting tip about a possible Hannah and Jed engagement. So I've spent the better part of the last two weeks doing all I can to figure out it's legitimacy. And now I finally feel comfortable and can report: Hannah chose Jed at the end and they are engaged."
Carbone said he's unable to reveal evidence supporting the fact Jed is the winner of Season 15.
Instead, all he could say is that the initial information he had received in May about Tyler winning was not as solid as he thought -- and his latest tip was definitely "trustworthy."
"The info about Jed from 3 weeks ago is as solid as I can get and I just have to leave it at that," Carbone wrote.
"I wouldn't change the biggest spoiler of the season unless I had something pretty solid to go off of. I believe I do."
Carbone said The Bachelorette viewers will hear all different stories and endings for Hannah's season in the coming weeks, but he's certain Jed is her guy.
"It's Jed, they're engaged, and that won't change from me the rest of the season," Carbone wrote in his blog. "There hasn't been anything more concrete on Hannah and Jed than what I received a few weeks ago."
Carbone said there are -- and will be more -- rumors surrounding Hannah and Jed's relationship but he cannot speak on any of them right now since sources refuse to come forward and put their names on the allegations.
Hours after Carbone's posting on June 18, a woman claiming to be Jed's girlfriend came forward to People alleging she was dating the country singer when he went on The Bachelorette, and Jed left for the show planning to resume his relationship with her afterwards. (CLICK HERE to read the details of her allegations.)
During his one-on-one date with Hannah in Newport, Jed already admitted he had come on The Bachelorette for the wrong reasons and only initially signed on to do the show to promote his music career as a singer and songwriter.
Jed insisted at the time, however, he had subsequently fallen for Hannah and found himself only concerned with her well-being and their relationship.
Jed claimed his feelings for Hannah were strong and she'd be the only reason why his stint on the show would continue from that point forward.
What has Hannah said about the 2019 finale?
Just days after filming ended, Hannah shed some light on her season's ending in an interview with Entertainment Tonight.
"I will tell you that I'm happy and, ultimately, this season and how it all turned out is not how I thought it would be. It just wasn't," Hannah said.
"It doesn't mean that it's not good. I think it happened exactly the way it was supposed to, and I feel really excited and blessed to have the opportunity that I've had and feel really good and want you all to see what that is. I can't really tell you much more."
During a June appearance on Nick Viall's "The Viall Files" podcast, Hannah also said she was slow and deliberate with her elimination decisions.
"Every relationship that I will end, when I end it, it's closed. So I will have times when I need to figure out my feelings and know them completely to be able to shut the door and not look back. And you'll see me process that," she told the former The Bachelor star.
Hannah continued, "I want to explore every single relationship until the end so I don't have to question, 'Was that because this or that? No, it was because I don't want to be with you. Great person -- but I don't want to be with you."
Hannah told Nick she didn't want to be left with any doubts or concerns she chose the wrong person in the end.
"When I make decisions, I'm confident about those," Hannah noted.
What has ABC said about the 2019 season's ending?
However in an interview with Variety, ABC reality chief Robert Mills revealed Hannah will end her season in love with multiple men and struggling to make a decision.
"This could be a situation where one of the guys gets out of the limo to head out to get his heart broken, and all of a sudden, she says, 'No, no, no, I'm sorry, he's the one,'" he said.
"You could see her changing her mind at the last minute. She really is that in love with these last few contestants, and she's torn over it."
"She definitely falls in love with numerous people. She's somebody who is very passionate and she has a massive heart. She's open to everyone and everything. With Hannah, she really was considering everything," the ABC executive added earlier during the interview.
"I think she dated a certain type of guy before this, and I think she realized that this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and she really explored multiple connections with many guys."
"She is someone who believes that there is room in your heart to love more than one person. So yes, she absolutely does fall in love with multiple men."
