Bachelorette's Peter Kraus Reveals Past Eating Disorder Battle

Peter Kraus, who famously competed on Rachel Lindsay‘s season of The Bachelorette and was the runner-up, just revealed that he battled an eating disorder at age 20 for several years.

“At the age of 20 I had developed an eating disorder while blindly attempting to keep up with the level of fitness of my fellow models and competitors. For two years I struggled in silence, always trying but never knowing how to compete with my counterparts. In the winter of 2007 I hit rock bottom and decided that it was finally time to take charge of my health and fitness and learn how to do things the right way,” Peter revealed on Instagram. “So I enrolled myself in the dietetics program at MATC and graduated with honors, my first PT job, and my first @ironmantri under my belt two years later.”

“So on this #WorkoutWednesday I say thank you to a career that taught me so much, that while now retired, is still fun to go back to from time to time to do things the RIGHT way. If it weren’t for hitting ‘rock bottom’ I never would have had this amazing hill of life to climb back up. So embrace the shit some times. Learn from it, pick your ass up off the floor and get moving forward and upward again. Some times from the darkest places shines the brightest light,” he concluded.

The Bachelorette's Peter Kraus Reportedly 'Enraged' the Show's Higher-Ups

Any fans hoping to see Peter Kraus as the next star of The Bachelor should make sure not to get their hopes up.

The reality star broke up with Rachel Lindsay on The Bachelorette after he told her he couldn’t commit to proposing if she gave him the final rose. She then left him and picked Bryan Abasolo as her winner the next day.

Mike Fleiss, the creator of the Bachelor Nation franchise, sent out a cryptic, but not-so-cryptic, tweet on Thursday (August 17) that basically made it seem like Peter has no chance of continuing on the show.

Now, sources have spoken out about how Peter “enraged” the higher-ups working on the show because he essentially was the perfect guy, but wouldn’t commit to the show’s ideal fairytale ending.

Peter is every Bachelor producer’s worst nightmare: the perfect guy who cannot be coerced into proposing at the end,” an insider told People. “The fact that no one could talk Peter into buckling under and just giving her the ring — and that he wouldn’t play along — absolutely enraged the higher-ups at the show. Including Fleiss, definitely. He is totally on their s— list forever, and there is no way they will reward him with a shot at The Bachelor. No way.”

Rachel Lindsay Reveals Her Pick for the Next 'Bachelor'

Rachel Lindsay shows off her engagement ring and new fiance Bryan Abasolo while heading into the Build Series studio for an interview on Tuesday (August 8) in New York City.

The 32-year-old reality star has opened up about who she thinks should be the next star of The Bachelor!

Rachel says that Alex, who went home in week six, should be the next suitor on the reality franchise.

“I actually think Alex should be the next bachelor,” Rachel told Variety. “I don’t think you got to see enough of him… He’s funny, quirky, handsome… and a serial monogamist.”

“I think [Alex] would be the most interesting season for sure,” Bryan agreed.

Peter Kraus on 'Bachelorette' Breakup: 'She Made the Right Decision'

Peter Kraus, the runner up on The Bachelorette, is opening up about what happened between him and Rachel in that very dramatic breakup prior to the rose ceremony.

“Relationships are all about sacrifice,” the 31-year-old runner up from Wisconsin told People. “She and I had been having a conversation/borderline argument for about three hours. I knew it was not going to end the way that I wanted. I knew the only way to keep her was to give her what it was that she was looking for. I decided that I would sacrifice my beliefs in order to prove to her that I was in love with her.”

“It was too little, too late. She knew that it wasn’t where my heart was at the time. I think we probably would’ve resented each other for it if she had agreed. I do think she made the right decision [by choosing Bryan] in the end,” Peter continued.
