There is no denying that Rachel Lindsay is smitten by Peter Kraus and his gap-toothed smile!
Rachel had a ton of hot guys to choose from on The Bachelorette premiere, but it was Peter who got called first at the rose ceremony — and on last night's episode, he scored the first one-on-one date of the season.
The couple spent the day together in Palm Springs with Rachel's "baby," Copper, at a dog-friendly pool party — and ended their date with fireworks (both literally and figuratively). We have a feeling Peter will go far this season — and we stalked his social media to learn more about the personal trainer and model.
(Don't worry, impatient fans can click here to find out who wins Rachel's heart in the end).
Keep reading below to find out more about Peter!
He hails from the same state as Rachel’s ex, Nick Viall.
Maybe Rachel just has a thing for midwestern guys. Peter, 30, is a Madison, WI, native, and he’s also lived in Chicago and LA while pursuing a career in modeling, according to Reality Steve. He graduated from the Madison Area Technical College in 2010 with an Associate of Science in Dietetics/Dietician — and he’s also a volunteer for the Make A Wish Foundation.
He landed a modeling gig two years ago.
In 2015, he starred in the ad campaign for J.TOOR, a Chicago-based menswear line.
He was one of the guys that Rachel brought to The Ellen DeGeneres Show for a date.
We're guessing she picked the hottest of the bunch for that one!
He works as a personal trainer — and it shows.
In 2012, he made Time Out Chicago’s list of the city’s hottest trainers — a title he definitely earned. He’s constantly showing off his workout routines and his super toned physique on his Instagram page, and he owns his own fitness company, Worth Training.
He’s on social media.
Peter’s Facebook page is private, but there are plenty of modeling pics and gym selfies for fans to stare at on his Instagram account!
