The Bachelor Visits Extra

BURBANK, CALIFORNIA - SEPTEMBER 17: Peter Weber visits "Extra" at Burbank Studios on September 17, 2019 in Burbank, California. 

(Meredith) – The newest Bachelor, Peter Weber, is recovering after having surgery to repair a face injury he sustained while golfing in Costa Rica.

According to PEOPLE, Weber fell and hit his head on cocktail glasses during the game. He was transported to a hospital nearly two hours away where he received 22 stitches on his face.

He is currently recovering.

The injury happened just one day before the women who would be competing in The Bachelor were set to arrive in Costa Rica.

Show host Chris Harrison called a "freak accident" but said that Weber is "100% OK."

Harrison did not go into detail on the accident, but a source familiar with production told CNN it was not as bad as what was being reported by some media outlets on Tuesday.

As of Tuesday afternoon, Weber was already back to work on set and going on dates, according to CNN.
