Peter Kraus: 5 Things To Know About Rachel's Frontrunner On 'The Bachelorette'


The Bachelorette airs Monday nights on ABC at 8pm EST.

After Rachel reads a recent text message he sent Lexi - and DeMario admits to having "sexual intercourse" with her - Rachel sends DeMario packing.

DeMario in the locker room before the confrontation. DeMario's first reaction upon seeing Lexie was "Ahhh, who - who's this?" The two are one of the most successful married Hollywood couples out there, and they also are new parents who are still trying to get used to that aspect of life.

"On my father's grave... on my kittens sleeping on my bed at my house right now, that never ever happened", Lexi said TO THE CAMERA.

And just when we thought we were done with DeMario, he showed back up at Bachelor Mansion to beg for another chance. After Copper takes a nap, Peter and Rachel sneak off to dinner to compare their tooth gaps and swap stories about their exes.

So, if that means The Bachelorette needs a few "Whaboom" moments or the surprise ambush of Lexi the ex in order to maximize the live television tension, I'm willing to make that trade in favor of getting to see Rachel share meaningful connections with the men of color on her season.

I guess even well-worn reality TV shows can throw some unexpected ingredients into the stew lest the constant repetition of "He's not in this for the right reasons" makes our collective heads explode.

However, the final scene showed a deflated Demario begging for host Chris Harrison to talk to Rachel. The producers were all, "Hmmm, what would be a good song to play over this game where the Beavers ultimately end up winning in the end?" On tonight's season 13 episode 2 as per the ABC synopsis, "Rachel takes eight lucky guys to a backyard barbecue in Malibu where Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis help with a husband material obstacle course".

After the couple watched several contestants go through the course, Kutcher chose to make a "bold prediction". But Peter goes along with it, and even dances with Rachel's dog. When Lindsay first introduces Copper to Kraus, she describes him as her best friend, who she hasn't seen in a while and who was in a bad accident.

The 32-year-old attorney confronted one of her suitors after a girl claiming to be his girlfriend appeared during their group date.

OK, now, confession time: I've been watching The Bachelor and its associated spin-offs since I was 12.

"So, let me tell you something. He came out here and didn't care if people were gonna love it or hate it.' So I was already intrigued". "Dean is making me laugh". Jackson said he had ended the relationship long ago and they were not together anymore. "And it does not hurt that he is so handsome".

"Hey, I'm sorry that you don't have whaboom", Lucas responded, asking Blake who the hell he was to judge. The rest of the guys at the cocktail party kinda bore Rachel - you're not alone, sister - until she chats with Dean, the 25-year-old who told her he wants to go black and never go back. Rachel's two-year-old rescue dog, Copper, bounded out of a auto wearing a cast on his leg.

The men arrive as Rachel is cooking a BBQ; they all cheers Rachel but admit today is when the boxing gloves may come out a little bit. Which raises the question: What's she doing on "The Bachelorette"?

Peter was chosen for the one on one date with Rachel and her gorgeous dog Copper.
