‘The Bachelor’ Star Peter Weber Suffers Facial Injury On Golf Course; Production On ABC Series Continues

However Bachelor host Chris Harrison has already issued a statement trying to assuage concerns: "Peter suffered a freak accident".

According to the website, The Bachelor star was rushed to the hospital "after splitting his head open" in a fall.

Weber, who was announced as the Bachelor for the upcoming season shortly before taping began, reportedly received 22 stitches after falling on a golf course, hitting his head and reportedly cutting his face on two cocktail glasses he was carrying. "He's still the dashing, handsome pilot we've all dreamed of".

The Rose Ceremony in Cleveland featured Peter narrowing his pool of women to Season 24's Final 12 bachelorettes, according to online spoilers.

"He went to step on the cart but fell and and split his face open on two cocktail glasses he was carrying", a source said, adding that the incident occurred on October 7.

Production of "The Bachelor" "is already back underway", Harrison added.

Weber, 28, was the second-to-last person eliminated during Hannah Brown's season of "The Bachelorette", which aired earlier this year.

The Bachelor is set to return on January 6, 2020. "I'm ready to move on and I'm ready to find my girl, and I'm very hopeful this is going to work out". I feel emotional right now, man.

As we previously shared with you, Peter was named the newest star of The Bachelor during the Bachelor In Paradise Season 6 reunion last month.

Pilot Pete, as he's commonly known to "Bachelor" fans, has been filming for several weeks, having been officially tabbed as the season 24 "Bachelor" in September.

Shortly after the Bachelorette finale, Weber told PEOPLE he'd definitely be on board to be Bachelor if asked.
