Peter Weber was one of the three finalists on Hannah Brown's season of 'The Bachelorette.' He was a top contender to be next season's 'Bachelor' along with fan favorite Mike Johnson and Tyler Cameron.
During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Chris Harrison opened up about how Peter's injury affected the show's filming process.
Showbiz Cheat Sheet revealed that fortunately, the injury Weber suffered wasn't beyond recovery and didn't stop him from filming the show.
“Peter suffered a freak accident. He got a cut on his head, he did get stitches but he’s 100 percent OK and production is already back underway,” Harrison said of Weber's injury. “He’s still the dashing, handsome pilot we’ve all dreamed of.”
The injury did, in fact, happen during filming. However, instead of blaming the show, Weber blamed himself and apologized for the injury.
“This is why I love Peter, he immediately was apologetic about [the injury] and he felt so bad that he messed up the show and ruined our lives and ruined the franchise,” Chris Harrison continued.
However, Peter's injury wasn't the only drama that went down on his season. Apparently things even got tense between Weber and Harrison.
“I had to stop being a friend and start showing some tough love. He needed a therapist. He needed to be helped,” Harrison said on 'Good Morning America.'
“It was a tough walk with him.It was a really emotional, gut-wrenching season in ways that we haven’t seen in a really long time,” he continued. “It was just more of, ‘OK, I gotta quit being your buddy here and Papa Chris has to show up and now I need to treat you like I would one of my kids.'”
Sounds like Peter had some seriously emotional experiences during the show. Chris Harrison insinuates that this might be one of the most dramatic seasons yet.
And this time he means it. Harrison compared Weber's season to the likes of former 'Bachelor' Ben Higgins' season.
“It’s a wild ride for people. It’s a very wild ride. I was trying to think of a season I could go back and reference, kind of like Ben Higgins’ season, where it’s a guy who really wears his heart and emotions on his sleeve and is really good at compartmentalizing but almost too much,” Harrison said of the season as a whole.
