Caution: Spoilers for tonight’s episode of The Bachelorette ahead.
Luke Stone‘s time on The Bachelorette came to a surprising end tonight after he chose to eliminate himself. The reason? A squabble with this season’s villain, Luke Parker, a.k.a. Muscle Guy Who Heard God in the Shower. Read our recap of the episode to find out exactly what happened, but for now just know Nick Viall’s long-lost twin is out of the competition. What? You haven’t realized that Luke Stone and Nick Viall look exactly alike? It’s all I think about.
Unsurprisingly, leaving because of a dumb fight wasn’t exactly in Stone’s plan when he signed up for The Bachelorette. In fact, he was hoping to avoid the drama altogether. Before filming kicked off, Stone told Glamour, “I understand the show inherently is a competitive one. But I’m going to maintain focus on what’s important, and that’s getting to know Hannah better. There’s going to be a lot of noise and distractions from what’s going on, but I’m going to keep my eye on what’s most important, which is getting to know her better. “
Unfortunately, Bachelorette Hannah Brown didn’t have much time to get to know Stone better—which disappoints him, because he initially thought they were compatible. Their first interaction on After the Final Rose, where he made a cheeky “going down” joke that Brown laughed at, convinced him they shared similar senses of humor. “She felt it was pretty damn funny what I said,” Stone told Glamour. (That’s up for debate, TBH: Re-watch Brown’s reaction to Stone’s cringe-y joke here.)
Regardless, his goofy side did come out several times while on The Bachelorette. Like in this photo shoot:
