Peter Kraus Might Be the Next ‘Bachelor’ and Twitter Isn't Having It

Amid the Corinne and DeMario Bachelor in Paradise dramz, ABC has yet to reveal one very important piece of information regarding the popular dating franchise: Who is the next Bachelor?

All signs point to The Bachelorette's Season 13 runner-up, Peter Kraus, and Twitter has a lot to say about it.

Earlier this morning, executive producer Mike Fleiss took to Twitter to announce they made progress toward finding the show’s next leading man. He tweeted, “Stand by for shocking news regarding #thebachelor...”

To no surprise, Twitter immediately exploded, rattling off names of potential candidates. But it was Reality Steve, a blogger known for accurately predicting the fate of Bachelor contestants, who sent the Twitterverse into a Peter Kraus frenzy. He wrote, “(SPOILER): I feel confident in reporting that sources are telling me Peter is the next Bachelor & it will be announced soon.”

While some users were excited about the news exclaiming, “Peter Kraus is #TheBachelor 2018: Dreams do come true #TeamPeter.” Others were not so enthused... “I like #Peter, but if he’s #TheBachelor, why waste everyone’s time if the process was an issue for him. Very confused.” Confused, indeed.

So will Peter claim the coveted title of Season 22’s The Bachelor? We'd love to hear what Rachel Lindsay has to say about this...
