Chris Harrison Says 'Bachelor&apos Star Peter Weber Suffered a Freak Accident But is '100% OK&apos

Just one day before the women of The Bachelor were set to arrive in Costa Rica for the new season, People reports that Peter Weber, the pilot behind this season's romance, hurt himself during a golf outing and needed to be rushed to the hospital. "He got a cut on his head, he did get stitches but he's 100% OK and production is already back underway", said Harrison.

"He went to step on the cart but fell and split his face open on two cocktail glasses he was carrying", a source told Radar Online.

Weber, known to franchise fans as Pilot Pete, underwent surgery after a two-hour drive to a San Jose hospital to be treated by a specialist.

Radar Online was first to report the news and claimed Weber required 22 stitches on his face.

Trump's announcement threw the military situation in Syria into fresh chaos and injected deeper uncertainty into the region. Iran expressed to Turkey on Monday its opposition to an incursion into northern Syria.

Fortunately, the contestants hadn't arrived in Costa Rica yet, so they weren't on site when Peter suffered from his injury, but Us Weekly claims the women, who are now competing for Peter's heart, were en route to join Peter in Costa Rica on Tuesday, Oct. 8.

Weber was named the upcoming Bachelor last month during the September 17 Season 6 reunion of Bachelor in Paradise, becoming the second Hispanic or Latino American franchise star (his mother is Cuban). "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". Engagements, breakups and plenty of tears springing from both joy and heartbreak make for a compelling season finale to "Bachelor in Paradise", TUESDAY, SEPT. 17 (8:00-11:00 p.m., EDT), on ABC.
