Peter Kraus Says He Turned Down 'The Bachelor' & Reveals Why

Peter Kraus Says He Turned Down 'The Bachelor' & Reveals Why

When Arie Luyendyk Jr. was named the new Bachelor, many fans were shocked as they were expecting the choice to be Rachel Lindsay‘s runner up Peter Kraus.

Now he’s explaining why he turned down the gig.

“It all just ended so fast,” Peter told Us Weekly. “It was just me, sitting there by myself in my own thoughts. That was a really dark couple of days. When you have no outlets, it’s hard to get out of your head…It was just a loose conversation of, ‘Is this something you have ever thought about, something you would do?’ I was so distraught at that time that it was something that I could never see myself doing.”

“There’s a lot of fun — some of my closets friends are from the show. But there are cons too. I feel like you lose control and I’m definitely a control freak. There’d be a lot I wouldn’t have final say on, and that would be hard for me,” he continued. “As far as proposal, yeah I’m worried that at the end of it I wouldn’t necessarily be able to, but it’s not that I don’t want to…This is kind of part of my thought process, if i did get to the end and I do really, truly like somebody but for some reason I can’t just say this is for sure that person, I don’t want it to be the same outcome again. People are forgiving once. I don’t know if they’re forgiving twice.”

“There was never a cold turkey like, ‘This is not happening.’ I was not ready for this and they agreed…If it were to come up again, I would definitely consider it,” he added.

Miranda Lambert on Male vs Female Country Radio Play: 'It's B.S.'

Miranda Lambert on Male vs Female Country Radio Play: 'It's B.S.'

Miranda Lambert is on the cover of Redbook magazine’s November 2017 issue, on newsstands October 24!

Here’s what the country star had to share with the mag:

On her ideal evening: “Shark Tank and yoga pants, and I’m the happiest person. I watch Tiny House Nation on a Friday night, and I’m like, ‘This is it! Frozen pizza. Woo!’”

On the disparity of male vs female country singers on the radio: “It’s B.S., straight up! Carrie Underwood still struggles, and that just blows my mind because she’s got a million hits and she’s Carrie Freakin’ Underwood. I tell them at the radio stations, ‘Just play one of us; it doesn’t have to be me. Then we all win.’ I’ll fight for it until I can’t no more.”

On fame: “I’m not actually a very good famous person at all. I hate cameras. I don’t love the spotlight. It was a big shocker to me that the music business is 80% business and 20% music. I was like, ‘I didn’t know I signed up for all this other stuff.’”

Natalie Dormer Gets Support from Hubby Anthony Byrne at 'Venus In Fur' After Party!

Natalie Dormer Gets Support from Hubby Anthony Byrne at 'Venus In Fur' After Party!

Natalie Dormer is all smiles as she poses alongside her handsome husband Anthony Byrne while attending the press night after party for Venus In Fur held at Mint Leaf on Tuesday (October 17) in London, England.

The 35-year-old actress was also joined by her co-stars Tom Hughes and David Oakes.

PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Natalie Dormer

Venus In Fur follows the story of enigmatic actress Vanda Jordan (Natalie) who appears unannounced for an audition with director Thomas Novachek (David). She’s determined to land the leading role in his new production – despite seeming wrong for the part. Over one evening in downtown Manhattan their charged meeting becomes a seductive dance to the end.

“You’ll either go home and have incredible sex, or you might break up with your partner… It has this wacky, dark surrealism, but at the same time manages to be incredibly sexy and funny,” Natalie expressed about the play (via The Guardian). “It has the Freudian, erudite arguments, so if you get turned on by having your brain tickled, you’re going to get turned on. But if you get turned on in the more rudimentary, physical way, that’s there too.”
