SharePoint 2013 lookup columns missing fields

I have two lists:


Contractor (people picker)
number (text)
dept (text)


PO Number (text)
Contractor (lookup) -------> This lookup will let me pick ID, Created, number, dept, etc... but there is NO choice for Contractor. I tried creating a second people picker column in list1... and it omits them both.

Help please!
