Peter Weber showed up for his group date on The Bachelor after getting 22 stitches on his forehead after suffering a freak accident. On the February 3 episode, the contestants reacted to the ABC star’s story about what happened.
“I was doing a little exploring, and I noticed this volcano, so I found a trail to take me up to it, to the top. And as I was walking, a puma crosses my path and immediately I just, like, lock eyes with it,” Peter, 28, told the women of his injury. “And my animal instinct took over, and I just did what had to be done.”
Many of the women gasped in shock, whereas the others knew the story was a joke.
He continued, “When you hear what happened, it's ridiculous. It's bad, though. I was walking out of the hotel lobby the other day and there was a golf cart and I ran into the golf cart. And I had a glass in my hand. As I hit my head, I then shattered the glass in the head.”
“It just sounds ridiculous,” the pilot admitted. “I freakin' stabbed myself in the head. I have 22 stitches. Like, I will never forget this experience, ever.”
RadarOnline reported in October 2019 that Peter suffered a facial injury and had to be hospitalized before a group date in Costa Rica.
“There was a ton of blood. It looked like a murder scene when it happened. It just started pouring out,” Peter told ET on January 2. “My forehead was literally split open.”
He recalled, “I was kind of, like, dazed. I didn't feel it at all, to be honest. My endorphins were just, like, firing, and everyone just rushes over and puts their hand on it. I ended up finding out later on how bad it was. I've seen the first picture and I was like, ‘Oh my god. I'll never look the same again’. The plastic surgeon, he took care of me. He did a good job.”
“The girls took care of me. They definitely kind of felt bad about it, but I wasn't gonna let this slow down my journey to find what I really wanted and it's all good. I got a battle scar now,” Peter said before jokingly adding, “Chicks dig scars, so I'm chilling.”
