‘Bachelor’ Peter Weber Undergoes Emergency Surgery in Costa Rica After Splitting Face Open

“Luckily, my ability to hump in windmills was unaffected by my injury…”

Peter Weber‘s journey to find love took an unexpected detour on Monday— to a Costa Rican hospital!

The Bachelor star— who was reportedly filming scenes for the upcoming season— underwent emergency surgery after he reportedly slipped and fell face-first into two cocktail glasses he was carrying, Radar Online reports. Peter was playing golf when the accident occurred, and was reportedly trying to step onto a golf cart. The injury was serious enough to require 22 stitches to Peter’s face, Radar reports. He was driven two hours to a specific hospital where a surgeon who specializes in the type of injury Peter had could operate on him.

“Kindly keep that and all glassware away from my face, thanks.”

Radar states that Peter was not on a date at the time of his accident. 

“All the women were flying in for filming today,” the site reported on Tuesday.

While Peter has been MIA on social media (due to being in the middle of filming), his fans hit the comment section of his most-recent Instagram post to send him well wishes (and poke fun at his injury).

“I seriously hope you’re ok, but can’t let the Frankenstein finds a wife joke go by the wayside,” one person joked.

“Get well soon Peter! All the love and wishes coming your way!” another person wrote.

It is not yet known how production will handle Peter’s injury (but The Ashley has no doubt that they’ll milk it for every “most dramatic season ever” ounce that they can!) It will likely delay production a bit while Peter recovers from surgery.

UPDATE! ‘Bachelor’ host Chris Harrison took to Instagram to provide an update on Peter and his injury. He assured fans that Peter is OK— and that the show will go on as planned.

“There’s been some wild claims and rumors about Peter today. Peter suffered a freak accident. He got a cut on his head, he did get stitches but he’s 100% OK and production is already back underway. He’s still the dashing, handsome pilot we’ve all dreamed of

  1. Umm, did they Photoshop his forehead to hide the injury in that picture? It looks like there’s a sizable square in the middle of his forehead that’s bern photoshopped.

  2. This network will be sure to wrap things up tight but I bet you anything something in their contract will invalidate if he’s injured while drinking. And hopefully these producers take it seriously that this kid is on painkillers and don’t let him drink until he’s off everything.

  3. As someone who has had multiple facial injuries and countless stitches, it probably sounds much worse than it actually is. He was most likely taken to a facial plastic surgeon and they use smaller stitches in order to minimize scarring. I had an amazing ER doctor that did about that many on an eye injury and you can barely see the scar now. Besides, chick did scars. (That is a joke from the Replacements)

  4. I bet HE will be the one milking the incident to get some $$ from the network once this season is finished and I hope he succeeds in that, 22 stitches to the face is a really big deal for anyone
