Peter Kraus is not ruling out the possibility of being named the "Bachelor" in the future. In his first interview after he refused to seal a deal with the ABC program, the 31-year-old dietitian thought it would be an "amazing opportunity" to take part on the reality program at some point after he experienced an "emotional roller coaster" journey on "The Bachelorette" with Rachel Lindsay.

In fact, he is now ready to face what awaits him and has no problem if he is destined to return on the reality dating franchise.

Since everything is doing well in his business and family, the model thought it was time for him to move forward and take new opportunities that may come his way.

When asked what held him back to accept the offer to be the next Bachelor when a new season opens next year, Peter Kraus admitted he needed more time to process what happened between him and Rachel Lindsay in "The Bachelorette" finale.

He explained to Entertainment Online that he is the kind of person who takes his time to think about big decisions like getting married and starting a family before he can actually commit to these lifelong duties.

Regardless of his decision, the model is still in talks with the producers for his potential casting on "Bachelor" in the future.

Peter Kraus' name was the first to emerge when the show made the casting announcement after "The Bachelorette" finale. The "Bachelor" nation, however, was surprised when the ABC program named Arie Luyendyk Jr. as their pick.

Shortly after the casting announcement, Peter Kraus penned an emotional letter to look back at his experience on "The Bachelorette," which he labeled as the "most incredible journey" of his life.

He also thanked Rachel Lindsay for giving him the opportunity to express his feelings until the end of the program. He even extended his best wishes to the female barrister who got engaged to her final pick Bryan Abasolo.

It is worth noting that Peter Kraus failed to win the heart of Rachel Lindsay after he refused to propose to her in "The Bachelorette" finale.

The runner-up, however, clarified that the program does not require their participants to get engaged at the end of the season.

"I made the mistake maybe of not watching Rachel [Lindsay] prior to the show, and seeing that she wanted an engagement more so than what I was ready to give at that time," he said.
