Luke Parker, who was outspoken about his Christian faith and call for sexual purity on last year’s “The Bachelorette,” defended Madison Prewett after she stood by her purity convictions on “The Bachelor” this week.
“My face when the fantasy suite situation is too familiar (emoticon). With that being said I haven’t been watching this season but I got the lowdown and I am proud of @madiprew for standing firm in her convictions. Keep doing you girl!” Parker said on Instagram.
Prewett, 23, was seen on this week’s episode of “The Bachelor,” telling Peter Weber that she would not be able to continue their relationship if he slept with other women on the show. The Alabama native has been open about her Christian faith throughout the show.
“I’m not in any way trying to come across as judgmental … but at the same time, those are my expectations that I have in life,” she told Weber on the Fantasy Suite episode. “In a week from now, if you’re down on one knee and six days before that you slept with somebody else, I just can’t wrap my mind around that.”
“I don’t want to feel like a bad person for the standards that I have. I’m so proud of who I am and the choices that I’ve made and the standards that I have,” she said on her date. “And it’s been so freakin hard in this because I’ve had to look past a lot of things — no, I’m not OK with a guy to be kissing other women but I’ve fought and I’ve gotten here. … I’ve sacrificed a lot and I’ve compromised a lot.”
But one thing she was not willing to compromise was sexual purity.
Prewett had already been honest with Weber earlier regarding her convictions and being uncomfortable with him being intimate with other women on the show.
“My faith is literally everything to me and I have saved myself for marriage. I can’t keep moving forward and continuing this relationship if I don’t get the clarity and peace and confidence that I need,” she said.
“In no way do I want to give you an ultimatum. But for me, actions speak louder than words.”
When Weber, 28, admitted that he had been intimate with one or more of the other women, Prewett excused herself and walked away.
