The new Bachelor on season 24 of the hit ABC show has reportedly got into an accident. Peter Weber, the dashing pilot of the new season, was all set to receive his ladies for an episode in Costa Rica; however, things didn’t exactly go according to plan.
Just one day before he the ladies were supposed to arrive, Weber cut his face on accident. According to sources, he was trying to sit on a golf cart when he fell down. The cocktail glasses in his face then landed on his face leading to deep cuts.
The bachelor then had to travel for two hours to the nearest hospital. This long journey was to make sure he met the right doctor for his surgery, US Weekly reports. Weber had to get 22 stitches on his face because of the fall.
However, he seemed to be in good spirits all throughout the ordeal. And now it is back to business per usual. The host Chris Harrison has said that Weber is completely fine, and filming has already resumed for the show. He also reassured fans that their pilot Weber is still handsome as always.
