"It was emotional, and when I watched her walk away for the last time, I asked if I could go after her, and I think in my heart, I knew that it wasn't the right decision to do that. It just faded away at that point, and I drank an entire bottle of wine by myself... Spanish wine, so it was very good," he shared.
Despite their tense conversation on After the Final Rose, Kraus says he has "no hard feelings" towards Lindsay -- but hasn't spoken to her since.
"When it ended, it ended. I knew that she got engaged to Bryan [Abasolo] the very next day, and it crushed me. I did not want to reach back out to that person, because I was still so truly invested in her, and I didn't want to continue to hurt myself, and I didn't want to cause any trouble in their relationship, not that it would have," he said, before sharing one last message to Lindsay.
"Thank you," he expressed. "There's all these fan videos of the process, and I watch them, because they're cute and the music is good, and it's hard. I still get emotional watching those videos, and there's just no closure for me."
