Will Peter's Weber's accident affect the season premiere?

Peter reportedly had an accident while filming the show and hurt his face. While playing golf, according to Radar Online, "he went to step on the cart but fell and split his face open on two cocktail glasses he was carrying."  

After the face injury, he underwent surgery, and according to longtime host Chris Hanson, "he’s 100 percent OK" now.

That said, we don't see it affecting the production and premiere of the new season. "He’s still the dashing, handsome pilot we’ve all dreamed of," Chris added while speaking to The Hollywood Reporter. "Production is already back underway." Phew!

Which The Bachelor contestants should we look out for?

We're not going to lie, we've had some trouble avoiding spoilers over the past few weeks! While we know there will be a slew of girls fighting to win Peter's love, Reality Steve has rumored that Hannah Sluss may be someone to look out for.

According to the blog, she won Peter's first impression rose. But don't fret, no one who’s won a first-impression rose has ever won The Bachelor.

Now that the season is only two and a half months away, all we can do is anxiously wait for the big premiere... and look up spoilers in the meantime, of course! We'll be counting down the days...
