They say love hurts, but for Peter Weber, that's quite literal.

The Bachelor lead, who's currently filming Season 24 of the ABC series, reportedly underwent emergency surgery after injuring himself on a golf course in Costa Rica. Though the injury was fairly serious (and required 22 stitches!), it did not slow down production. In fact, the 28-year-old is allegedly already back to filming.

So, what exactly happened to Peter from The Bachelor? According to reports, the pilot slipped and fell, cutting his face on cocktail glasses.

"He went to step on the cart but fell and and split his face open on two cocktail glasses he was carrying," a source told Radar Online. The outlet also reports that Peter is "pulling through" after his injury.

Chris Harrison spoke out and confirmed the news of Peter's injury, though claimed there have been some "wild claims" about what actually happened. He added that though he did cut his head and got stitches, he's now "100% OK" and "still the dashing, handsome pilot we've all dreamed of."

 

Despite this minor setback in Peter's journey to find love, the pilot couldn't be more excited about the opportunity to hand out the roses this season. While appearing on the After the Final Rose special back in September, he admitted he's "so grateful" to be given this chance to meet his future wife.

Just hours before ABC announced the next 'Bachelor' Season 24 star, they've released possible contestants as a sneak peek for fans.

"I feel so grateful right now just to have this opportunity in front of me,” he said. “I feel emotional right now. This is crazy. This is life-changing. I have truly, my entire life, looked forward to finding my girl, and that first person that I cannot wait to spend the rest of my life with. I have all the faith in the world that this can work for me, and I know it’s going to.”
