Peter Kraus Reaction to the Bachelor 2017

Peter Kraus's Response to the Shocking Bachelor Reveal Will Only Make You More Upset

ABC finally revealed who would be the next Bachelor on Thursday, and the news left a lot of fans more confused and, quite frankly, annoyed. Not only does the decision to cast season eight Bachelorette runner-up Arie Luyendyk Jr. come out of left field, but most of Bachelor Nation was hoping it would actually be season 13 Bachelorette runner-up Peter Kraus. As fans expressed their frustrations on social media shortly after the reveal, Kraus decided to put it all out there in a lengthy post on Instagram.

"#tbt to the most incredible journey of this life time that has now officially come to an end today. As I sit here writing this, I struggle to hold back the tears as I am overcome with emotion one last time. First and foremost.. Rachel, there are so very many things that I've wished I could say to you since the day we parted ways in Spain, but for everyone's sake, I'll keep it short... You gave me a chance and all that I can say is thank you. I have a heart filled with love for you now and always and wish you nothing but the best in your life and love ahead. ABC, you saw something in me, but something held me back. You treated me with such love and kindness and showed me glimpses of a life I never once dreamed that I could have. I will be forever humbled and grateful and will always look back at these last 6 months with an ear to ear smile, knowing that this has truly been a very special life indeed. Upon leaving the @bacheloretteabc I was asked, 'what did you learn about yourself during this process?' And at the time I naively said 'nothing that I can think of.' Now... looking back... I realize I learned one of the single greatest teachings of my life; When you let uncertainty or fear guide your decisions, you risk missing out on what could potentially be the greatest opportunity of a life time. So live dangerously, live without the fear of the unknown, and continue to live and love with a heart that is truly open to anything. #thankyou #lovealways"

While it's still uncertain why exactly he was skipped over for The Bachelor season 22, his endearing response has only made America fall even more in love with him. Here's hoping he will have another chance at love next season.
