No matter how much people campaign for Peter Kraus to become the lead on the next "Bachelor," it won't happen. Even if Kraus wanted it, the producers are giving reasons why he would not be their choice.

Not producers' favorite

Fan favorite Peter Kraus is not the producers' favorite. According to what "The Bachelor" creator Mike Fleiss tweeted, Kraus' attitude during the finale of "The Bachelorette" is not what producers are looking for in the franchise.

Admittedly, wanting to propose to someone after knowing the person for only one month is not the usual way to do it.

However, when a person becomes a contestant on "The Bachelorette," "The Bachelor," or "The Bachelor in Paradise" the ultimate goal is to propose or accept a proposal. That wasn't Peter Kraus' goal at all, and he knew it before going on "The Bachelorette" where Rachel Lindsay took him to the top two.

Peter was clear about what he wanted, but it did not fit in with what Rachel wanted. She did not put her life on hold to go on a show just to get a boyfriend. She admitted she has had plenty of them. Rachel's goal was to get a proposal whereas Peter's goal was not to propose at all. He said he wanted to date her longer.

The breakup

Peter and Rachel's breakup was one of the most emotional scenes in the history of the franchise.

A lot of viewers sympathized with Peter and thought Rachel should have chosen him even with his attitude. Fleiss didn't agree with viewers. In fact, he didn't like Peter's behavior when he met with Rachel on the finale. If Peter wasn't ready to propose to Rachel whom he professed to love, why go on another show of its kind and get to the end with the possibility of the same thing happening again?

According to PEOPLE on Thursday, the show's creator said Peter is every "Bachelor" producer's worst nightmare because he went to the very end and didn't want to propose. So those on Team Peter can exhale and relax because he will not become the lead on the next "Bachelor." Because of Peter's position, producers will probably screen contestants thoroughly to make sure something like this doesn't happen again.


The names of two former contestants have been added to the shortlist of contenders for "The Bachelor" when it returns in 2018. They are Luke Pell from JoJo Fletcher's season of "The Bachelorette" and Robby Hayes who was JoJo's first runner up. He is on this season's "Bachelor in Paradise."

Sources say Pell was earmarked to be the lead on the season that Nick Viall ended up getting. The 32-year-old military veteran says he would do it in a heart beat. Hayes, 28, also would love to get another chance at love. The lead for the next season of "The Bachelor" will be announced after Season 4 of "Bachelor in Paradise" is over.
