SharePoint 2013 lookup columns missing fields

I have two lists:

List1:

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

List2:

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!

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi,
unfortunately not all column types are available to be used as lookup fields.
An overview can be found here:

The following table summarizes what column types can and cannot be used to create lookup columns.
Supported Column Types:
Single line of text, Multiple lines of text, Choice, Number, Date and Time, Yes/No

Unsupported Column Types:
