The adorable duo go on another one-on-one date in a preview for the Monday, July 10, episode of The Bachelorette. And this time, Rachel, 32, and Peter, 31, are continuing getting to know one another while casually dog-sledding through the Swiss Alps — because why not? Check it out in the video below!
“Peter was someone who sparked my interest from the beginning,” Rachel says in the sneak peek. “When I planned this day for Peter, I wanted it to be something romantic and beautiful and the Swiss Alps [are] known for having such a romantic setting and such romantic views. Like, Geneva’s gorgeous!”
For his part, Peter was equally thrilled to be spending more alone time with the Dallas-based attorney.
“I’m very excited to spend another entire day with Rachel. It’s been a long time,” he says in a confessional, adding that his favorite part of their date came during their helicopter ride over the mountains. “She was holding my hand and putting her head on my shoulder. It reminded me that the feelings that we had originally are still there. So it gave me very high hopes.”
Just last month, the hunky personal trainer told Entertainment Tonight that he fell hard for Rachel while filming ABC’s hit dating series.
"I feel like we've had a good connection since the very start," he told the outlet. "With Rachel's it's an instant connection — I mean it's not hard to connect with someone who's that intelligent, sophisticated, adventurous, outgoing, all that. She's really all those things you kind of look for in a partner, so it was easy to fall for her real quick.”
Despite his super strong feelings for Rach, it was recently revealed that Peter once had a major crush on Andi Dorfman, the star of The Bachelorette’s Season 10. According to screenshots taken by a reddit user, the Wisconsin native took to Facebook in February 2015 to let his friends know that he was nominated to be on The Bachelorette — and that he thought Andi, 30, was stunning.
“Sharing this because I was nominated to be on the next installment of Bachelorette,” Peter wrote at the time, accompanied by a link to an E! News story detailing Andi’s split from Josh Murray. “I would most likely never do it, but if this girl was on it, I might have to seriously reconsider.”

The Bachelorette airs on ABC Mondays at 8 p.m. ET.
