The 31-year-old Wisconsin native isn’t just charming America on the reality dating show — it also appears that he’s actually falling in love. Entertainment Tonight recently caught up with the trainer turned reality star to talk about his feelings for Rachel Lindsay and if he’s interested in becoming the next Bachelor (you know, if this relationship doesn’t work out). Now, we’re not confirming Peter and Rachel end up together — you can click here for Bachelorette spoilers! — but, the hunky contestant surprised everyone with his answer because he seemed less like a man looking for fame and more like a man in love.
In fact, he seems to have zero interest in potentially being the next season’s lead.
“Right now to be completely honest, Rachel’s definitely my focus,” he revealed. “I haven’t met anybody in my life quite like her, so if I can be that final person with Rachel at the end I will be the happiest man that I can possibly be.”
So, could this mean Rachel really does end up with Peter?
He looks and talks like a man in love and can’t seem to get over the instant connection he shared with Rachel.
“I feel like we’ve had a good connection since the very start,” he gushed. “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.”
Rachel definitely is a lucky lady!
