Peter Reportedly Was Asked To Be The Bachelor

Reality Steve can be a life ruiner, he ruins people lives—mostly by publishing spoilers to our favorite reality shows, i.e. The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, and Bachelor in Paradise. Given, sometimes he gets it really wrong, like when he said Kaitlyn Bristowe didn’t choose anyone at the end of her season of The Bachelorette. He also predicted Rachel would end up with Peter. Wrong again, Steve.

Hey, speaking of whom, he’s stirring the pot between the people behind the franchise and critic of “the process”/runner-up of Rachel’s season/everyone’s favorite gap-toothed silver fox, Peter Kraus. The show’s creator tweeted last week that they really don’t want a Bachelor who isn’t balls deep in the idea that he should propose after six weeks and four dates with someone.

Steve is calling bullshit on Fleiss, saying that they offered the spot to Peter and he was like, “Nah, fam, I’m good in Wisconsin or wherever the fuck I’m from.”

So let’s break this down and come up with a super-sorta-educated opinion on the situation.

Exhibit A: The Yearbook

In his high school yearbook, Kraus said it would be his dream to be The Bachelor. Let’s be real, I’m sure a lot of people said a lot of shit they didn’t mean in their high school year books. My high school boyfriend said he wanted to be a lawyer and now he’s a lawyer but he still smokes a lot of pot and probably isn’t a very good lawyer. Okay, maybe not the best example. So anyway, maybe Peter made it on The Bachelorette and realized that it just wasn’t his thing. Been there done that.

Exhibit B: Look At Him

I’m just going to say this. Peter has probably figured out that he can pull way more tail and not have producers breathing down his neck while he does it if he just stays off the show. Now that he’s the most eligible/bangable guy in America, I don’t think he’ll ever need a show again to help him get laid. And this way, he can hit it and quit it with no pressure to pop the question six weeks later. Who wouldn’t throw themselves into his gray sweater-covered arms at this point?

That’s pretty much all I have as far as evidence goes. But, as proven by the fact that Bachelor in Paradise showed some of the Corinne/DeMario footage, we can pretty much assume the creators of the show are all about covering their own asses and not looking bad ever, no matter what. It makes sense that they wouldn’t want to risk being embarrassed by Peter again.

I’m legit thinking Peter totally turned the show down. Good for him. I mean, sure, I would have loved to see him shirtless for eight weeks in a row, but now I can just move to Wisconsin and stalk him in secrecy without having to go to a casting event. Kind of a win-win, really.
