Peter Weber suffered a serious injury to his face while filming season 24 of The Bachelor.
The contestant was walking on a golf course in Costa Rica on Monday with two cocktail glasses in his hand during the incident. The 28-year-old star was then driven two hours to a hospital where he was stitched up. The female contestants were not yet at the location.
RadarOnline was first to report the news on Tuesday morning adding that he ‘split his face open’ and that the wound was ‘serious.’
Host Chris Harrison has now revealed Peter is ‘100% OK’, in a statement to ET Online.

Speaking about the incident, a source told Radar: ‘He went to step on the cart but fell and and split his face open on two cocktail glasses he was carrying.
