Former "Bachelorette" star, Peter Kraus, will be returning to reality television for a brand new "Bachelor" spin-off, and fans couldn't be happier. Kraus, who was the runner-up during Rachel Lindsay's season, was a huge fan favorite, and many viewers were upset when it was revealed that Peter would not be the new "Bachelor."

Peter is coming back to find love again

Now, fans will see Peter Kraus return to the "Bachelor" franchise for a brand new spin-off show that will air this winter. Peter and other former "Bachelor" and "Bachelorette" contestants will compete against each other in ABC's new "Bachelor Winter Games," which will air during the same time as the 2018 Winter Olympics.

The show's creator, Mike Fleiss tweeted confirmation that Klaus would be apart of the new spin-off's cast, and fans were thrilled to learn that Peter would soon be back on their television screens.

Fans disappointed that Kraus wasn't the new 'Bachelor'

As many "Bachelorette" fans will remember, Peter Kraus made an instant impression on Rachel Lindsay last season. The couple had a very strong connection, and many fans believed that Rachel would have chosen Peter as her future husband if he hadn't been so hesitant about proposing to her during the finale. Peter told Rachel that he was falling in love with her, but that he needed more time before he could get down on one knee and pop the question. Kraus remained adamant that he wanted to only be engaged and married one time in his life, and drew inspiration from his parents.

Although Rachel Lindsay claimed to have very strong feelings for Peter, she refused to walk away from the show without a diamond ring on her finger.

Peter just couldn't fully commit to Rachel

Ultimately, Rachel chose Bryan Abasolo as the winner, and the two are currently engaged and planning their wedding together. However, during the "Bachelorette" live after show, Peter Kraus claimed to still be heartbroken over his split with Rachel Lindsay, who was cold to him during the live finale event. This seemingly made viewers love Peter even more, and they immediately began to campaign for him to become the new "Bachelor." However, it looks like Kraus wasn't ready to make such a big commitment, and he reportedly turned down the offer.

Tune in this winter for the brand new show

Perhaps Peter Kraus will find love during the "Bachelor Winter Games," and fans can watch his journey unfold with a new woman during the new spin-off. If not, there is always a chance that Peter could be "The Bachelor" in the future, if and when he feels ready to settle down and make the commitment.
