On April 23, Kraus hopped on Ben Higgins and Ashley Iaconetti’s Almost Famous podcast. The business proprietor from Madison, Wisconsin shared he turned down The Bachelor thrice for quite a few causes. 

Kraus revealed he was seeing somebody throughout negotiations and wasn’t positive whether or not he wished to finish the connection. He additionally wasn’t assured he may come out of the season engaged. Meanwhile, the present’s producers provided Kraus much less cash than he made in actual life. 

Now Kraus has spent a while away from Bachelor Nation. And throughout the previous three years, he hasn’t proven up in a single spinoff. But would Kraus ever think about returning for Bachelor in Paradise? Looks just like the franchise’s current casting decisions have turned the 35-year-old off in the intervening time.

“I gained’t do Bachelor in Paradise, personally, particularly realizing that the group of women that have been simply on the present have been all actually younger,” Kraus mentioned. “I’d like to date 30 and above if possible.”

Peter Kraus says he was uninvited from ‘Bachelor Winter Games’

Just as a result of Kraus mentioned no to Bachelor in Paradise doesn’t essentially imply he gained’t come again for a distinct spinoff. Still talking on the Almost Famous podcast, The Bachelorette alum was requested whether or not he wouldn’t do one other Bachelor present once more. 

“I can’t say that,” Kraus replied.

Meanwhile, Kraus’ previous actions present he’s open to the franchise. Back in 2018, the fact star was set to look on Bachelor Winter Games. However, he was instantly uninvited. 

“I truly mentioned sure to [Bachelor Winter Games],” Kraus advised Higgins and Iaconetti, who each appeared on the present. “I think it was just a couple days before we were supposed to leave. They texted me, ‘Change of plans. You’re not invited anymore.’ So that was the end of that. And I looked at my text like, ‘Well, sh*t. I don’t know what I did. But OK.’”

Even to at the present time, Kraus doesn’t know why he was uninvited. But he has his theories.

“My personal opinion was that Arie [Luyendyk Jr.] was the bachelor at the time,” Kraus mentioned. “And because I was the guy that was being talked about as another opportunity to be bachelor … maybe they just didn’t want the conversation to even be had. They just wanted to nip it in the butt and get it over with.”

He continued: “That was just my personal opinion. I have no clue. Maybe I pissed someone off in some way. Or maybe they heard something. But I have no clue.”

Then Kraus admitted he was glad he didn’t go on Winter Games as a result of he “doesn’t do well in the snow.” But regardless, The Bachelorette alum remains to be grateful for The Bachelor franchise and the doorways opened due to it. 

“I am eternally grateful for the opportunity and for Rachel keeping my around for as long as she did,” Kraus mentioned. “It was a life-changing experience.”
