Earlier this week, even before Rachel Lindsay’s The Bachelorette premiered on ABC, there was already a leak that Peter Kraus is this season’s winner. While there’s no way to confirm that at this point, Jimmy Kimmel placed his bet on the same man, reaffirming claims that the Madison native is indeed Rachel’s final pick.
Monday night, during The Bachelorette star Rachel Lindsay’s guest appearance, Kimmel made his own prediction about the all new season of the reality show. He named personal trainer Eric Bigger and first impression rose recipient Bryan Abasolo as runner-ups. Then he went on to reveal who his The Bachelorette 2017 winner is.
The Bachelorette Peter Kraus: Why Him?
“His name is Peter,” the host told Lindsay and the audience. “You gave him a look when he got out of the limo, the kind of look women get on their face when they see a pair of shoes they absolutely love and want to have.
According to Kimmel, Lindsay and Kraus both have gaps in the front of their teeth, “which will make for adorable babies.” He also gave the bachelorette chocolate but said he would throw it in the fire after learning Rachel dislikes the sweet.
“Strong move,” Kimmel said. “I believe that you are currently engaged to Peter.”
While Kimmel said his predictions for The Bachelorette franchise are typically spot on, he jokingly noted they don’t usually work out. Nonetheless, he wished Lindsay and whoever the lucky man is all the best.
Kimmel’s statement complements Reality Steve’s earlier spoiler that the business owner won the competition and is now engaged to Lindsay. Check out the video below:
Who Is He?
The 30-year-old bachelor, just like Nick Viall, hails from Wisconsin, although he has also lived in Chicago and Los Angeles. From what we know, he has tried his hand at modeling but got his degree in Dietetics. He now runs his own business called WORTH Personal Training and volunteers for the Make-A-Wish Foundation at the same time.
If he seems familiar to you, you may have actually already met him because Lindsay brought him to The Ellen DeGeneres Show prior to the season premiere. For more information about The Bachelorette 2017 winner, read the facts we listed about him here.
