It's a beautiful bromance! Peter Kraus and Dean Unglert of The Bachelorette are inseparable as they reunite in Las Vegas
They once competed for Rachel Lindsay's affection on The Bachelorette.
But Peter Kraus and Dean Unglert - neither of whom won the show's 13th season - seem to have put that all behind them and become pals.
Peter uploaded an Instagram photo Friday night of himself and Dean linking arms and sipping beverages at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, where they've been for the iHeartRadio Music Festival.

'Reunited and it feels so good!': Peter Kraus posted an Instagram photo Friday of himself at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas with fellow The Bachelorette alumnus Dean Unglert
So sweet: Peter and Dean were super affectionate as they cuddled up on the red carpet at the iHeartRadio Music Festival on Friday
They appeared to be having milkshakes in the black-and-white snapshot, which Peter had captioned: 'Reunited and it feels so good!' with two heart emoji.
The two men also appeared in a Las Vegas Instagram photo posted on Friday by Becca Tilley, an alumna of the 30th season of The Bachelor.
Also featured in that photo were fellow Bachelor Nation stars Ashley Iaconetti and Wells Adams.
Like Dean and Becca, both Wells and Ashley have also starred on Bachelor In Paradise.

The quintet were lined up on a black sofa at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.
'Dean, if you have bruises on your right knee- sorry for that,' Becca wrote in the caption, gushing: 'WE ARE SO HAPPY TO BE AT #iheartfestival!!!!'
She went on: Thanks @phvegas for welcoming us with open arms last night! We [heart emoji] you!'
Becca, in the photo, had a hand at Dean's knee, whereas Ashley had kept her hands to herself - something Becca pointed out in a string of hashtags closing the caption.
She wrote: '#whatdoidowithmyhands #NOTTHAT #shouldvedonewhatashleydid'.
Another quintet: Dean, Peter, Becca and Wells hit the red carpet at the festival alongside Ben Higgins, whose heart Becca had vied unsuccessfully for on The Bachelor
Location: This red carpet was held at the T-Mobile Arena, which opened on The Strip last year

Peter and Dean seemed affectionate, the latter flinging his arms around the former from behind as the cameras snapped away at them.
In a playful pose, Dean, Ben and Wells lined up and raised their arms to carry Becca, who'd draped herself across them. Peter stood to the side.
Race car driver Arie Luyendyk, Jr. of The Bachelorette's eighth season has recently been revealed as the next Bachelor - sending a sector of Bachelor Nation into high dudgeon, some because they thought the gig would go to Peter.

In fact, when a TV Guide poll in July asked: 'Who do you think will be the next Bachelor?' Peter was No. 1 with 50%, with Dean the runner-up at 28%.
When the poll asked: 'Who do you want to be the next Bachelor?' Peter was still in the lead, but at only 38%, and Dean was nipping at his heels with 37%.
Rachel had emotionally sent a distraught Peter home during The Bachelorette's 13th season finale, after he refused to commit to proposing to her the next day.
When the next day came, Rachel accepted Bryan Abasolo's castle-top proposal in the Spanish countryside - as shown on that finale, which aired last month.

Peter recently spoke to Entertainment Tonight, and though he wouldn't rule out a future gig as The Bachelor, he did maintain that the show's upcoming season 'wasn't a good time for me.'
He said: 'It was such an emotional roller coaster. I didn't feel like I had enough time to process the season and After The Final Rose, and where I was at in my own life at the time. I needed more time for clarity.'
The personal trainer confessed: 'I'm the type of person who needs maybe too much time to process things when it comes to life and love...when I'm talking about my wife and my future, I want to take time to really think about it.'
