Another Bachelor couple is in the works!
Bachelor Nation fans freaked out earlier this week when Peter Kraus and Bibiana Julian — two fan favorites — were spotted on a date.
They were seen attending a Miami Heat basketball game together, which naturally sparked rumors.
Though they are not in a full-fledged relationship just yet, a source told E! News that they are in fact dating.
“Peter and Bibiana have been friends for a while now through the Bachelor franchise, but most recently started hanging out alone,” the source said.
“There is definitely a romantic connection there and they are casually dating. It’s very new and they are seeing how things go.”
The source continued, “They spent time alone in Miami together, went to the Heat game on a date, and are really enjoying each other’s company.”
Because Bibiana lives in Miami and Peter lives in Wisconsin, the distance has affected their relationship a little bit.
“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,” the source explained.
This is big news for a lot of Bachelor fans, especially because many want to see Peter as the next Bachelor sometime soon.
Though fans wanted him to take on the leading role last season, Peter told Us Weekly he didn’t feel ready to take the job at that time.
“I’ve thought about it. But I’m happy it’s not me,” he said back in January.
“Like reality TV is … it’s a whole ‘nother beast. The amount of pressure that he [Arie] has to face now, he’s on every magazine cover. He’s all over the place, and people have their opinions of him and I don’t know.”
He continued, “It’s a world that I am happy without … I mean, being in the spotlight if you will, it’s exciting. I’m not going to lie. Walking past a magazine and seeing myself in a little tiny picture in the corner, it’s interesting. But, I don’t know. It’s not something that I need to get fulfillment in my life.”
Do you think there’s any chance Peter will be the Bachelor in the future? Or is Bibiana the real deal?! Tell us what you think!
