Happy days are here again, because Peter Kraus—a.k.a Hot Peter from Rachel Lindsay’s season of The Bachelorette—and Bibiana Julian, Winter Games queen and contestant from Arie Luyendyk Jr.’s Bachelor season, are reportedly dating.
This news comes from E!, which reports exclusively the two reality stars are “casually” seeing each other. They were supposedly spotted at a Miami Heat game on Tuesday, December 4 (in Julian’s hometown of Miami) and have actually been friendly for a while now. “Most recently [they] started hanging out alone,” a source reveals. “There is definitely a romantic connection there.”
“It’s very new and they are seeing how things go,” adds the source. “It’s hard because their relationship is long distance, but they are trying to see how things pan out and are definitely into each other.”
I ship this hardcore—more than I’ve shipped any Bachelor couple. In fact, I’ve never really shipped a Bachelor couple until this moment. JoJo Fletcher? A legend, but I was never invested in her love life. Nick Viall? Cared more about his tenure on Dancing With the Stars than his final rose. Peter and Bibiana, though? Wow. If they’re actually a couple, I never have to find love.
Below, a video of Hot Peter and Bibiana sitting together at the Miami Heat game:
Peter Kraus, as we all remember, was an icy-haired dream on Rachel’s season of The Bachelorette who just wanted to drink wine and paint. Who doesn’t want to drink wine and paint?! Now Bibiana gets to drink wine and paint with Peter as he just sits there with his sexy teeth gap and broad shoulders. It’s a modern-day Nicholas Sparks novel.
And it’s what Bibiana deserves. She was put through the ringer on Bachelor Winter Games and Arie’s season. Remember the romantic love nest she set up for Arie that he cuddled in with another girl? Peter would never do that! He’s too busy figuring out Bibiana’s pinot grigio of choice and booking them a session at Color Me Mine. Please let this be real!
Bibiana’s rep had no comment.
