Former Bachelorette contestant Peter Kraus is returning to reality television as part of a new Bachelor Nation spinoff.
"Yes, Peter will be looking for love--and going for the gold--on #TheBachelor Winter Games!!!," franchise creator Mike Fleiss tweeted on Wednesday.
According to CNN, the new series will “take competitive dating to a chilling new level" by bringing all-stars back from The Bachelor and The Bacheloretteto participate in "winter-themed athletic challenges."
It will film in a variety of international locations. Kraus was one of the contestants vying for the heart of Rachel Lindsay on season 13 of The Bachelorette.
He was a favorite to be the next Bachelor, but lost the gig to Arie Luyendyk Jr.
#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

Do we really want a Bachelor who isn't ready to settle down with a woman he loves? Hmmm. Not what #thebachelor is all about...— Mike Fleiss (@fleissmeister) August 17, 2017
