Peter Kraus is today's Reality TV Sexy Social Pics Guy of the Day!

Peter, a 31-year-old personal trainer and business owner from Wisconsin, first came to the attention of reality TV viewers when he competed for the heart of Rachel Lindsay on Season 13 of The Bachelorette earlier this year.

While he came close to receiving Rachel's final rose, Peter finished short. He made it to the Final 2 but lost what he had with Rachel, a Dallas attorney, when she instead picked Bryan Abasolo, a Miami chiropractor.

Rachel, however, only appeared to cut Peter after they couldn't bridge the gap between their wants and desires, as Rachel was desperate not to leave The Bachelorette with just a boyfriend but Peter was reluctant to propose marriage after only going on a few one-on-one dates with his love interest.

Peter was a fan-favorite and was reportedly a frontrunner to become The Bachelor's Season 22 star in 2018, but ABC ultimately chose to give the role to race car driver turned real estate Arie Luyendyk Jr.

However, Bachelor Nation hasn't seen the last of Peter, as franchise creator and executive producer Mike Fleiss recently announced he'll star on The Bachelor Winter Games, which will be filmed in Vermont and air on ABC in February 2018.

"Peter will be looking for love -- and going for the gold -- on #TheBachelor Winter Games!!!!" Fleiss tweeted earlier this month.

The new Winter Games series will feature past bachelors and bachelorettes, including arch rivals and villains, competing in winter-themed challenges all the while looking for love at a luxurious winter resort. At least 12 different nations will be represented on the show.
