Welcome Peter Weber to the long list of Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants who have gone under the knife for a little nip/tuck. Though Weber’s surgery wasn’t quite as planned as many of his counterparts!
As RadarOnline.com readers know, ABC’s newest Bachelor himself had to undergo surgery after he was rushed to a Costa Rican hospital on Monday, October 7 after splitting his head open during a game of golf.
While Weber had no choice but to undergo surgery, plenty of the reality show’s contestants are anxious to go under the knife and improve and perceived imperfections. Still others may not elect for surgery, but that hasn’t stopped fans from wondering if they are hiding something.
As Radar first reported, Weber, 28, underwent emergency facial surgery and was left with 22 stitches.
“He went to step on the cart but fell and split his face open on two cocktail glasses he was carrying,” an insider told Radar.
A week later, the stitches were removed, and there are reports the hunky pilot is already back filming dates with his potential plus-ones.
“Peter suffered a freak accident. He got a cut on his head, he did get stitches but he’s 100% OK and production is already back underway,” show host Chris Harrison shared on Instagram after the initial accident. “He’s still the dashing, handsome pilot we’ve all dreamed of.”
Weber’s new season of The Bachelor is expected to premiere in January 2020 on ABC. Until then, take a look back through this Radar gallery of other contestants who have had some work done.
Jillian Harris starred on the ABC reality TV show in 2009. Years later, she admitted to having had plastic surgery and a nose job in 2012. One reason she had the procedure was because she'd previously broken her nose, but she also revealed on her website that rude comments made about her online ultimately drove her to go under the knife.
"It was a personal decision and it’s my choice and I’m extremely, extremely happy about it," she said. "I wanted it to still look like me. My doctor did a really great job."
Fans – and Radar experts – noticed JoJo Fletcher, who was originally a contestant on the twentieth season of The Bachelor appeared decidedly different when she headlined season 12 of The Bachelorette.
"The tip of her nose dropped some, which may simply be age or rhinoplasty," Dr. Susan Evans, who has not examined Fletcher, told Radar in 2016.
But that's not all The Bachelorette star may have done to alter her appearance, as a second surgeon believes she underwent a complete breast augmentation!
"I see some subtle evidence of lip fillers and breast implants," Dr. Michael Salzhauer, who has not treated Fletcher, said. "Juvederm most likely to the edges of the lip line."
Kaitlyn Bristowe found love on season 11 of The Bachelorette, but it seems it wasn’t enough!
In photo posted to Instagram, the former single lady alarmed fans with her rapidly changing face.
Dermatologist Gary Goldenberg, who has not treated Bristowe, noted the reality TV star shows “signs of cheek fillers, skin brightening, lip plumpers, Botox, and even a non-surgical neck- and chin-lift.”
Bristowe responded to the plastic surgery accusations last year on Snapchat — revealing she is hurt by the constant cyberbullying she receives.
“I’m crying,” she wrote. “Not because people tell me I’m not beautiful anymore, say I get too much Botox, and ask wtf happened to my face. I’m crying because the world we live in makes me not want to bring beautiful innocent children into it. And that kills me.”
Lauren Bushnell accepted Ben Higgins final rose on season 20 of The Bachelor. But their love was not to be, and she has since gone on to find happiness – not to mention another engagement ring – with country singer Chris Lane.
With fame, came a changing face for the reality star.
Dr. Andrew Miller, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who has practices in New York and New Jersey but has not treated Bushnell, claimed the blonde beauty appears to have gotten lip filler and Botox — while Double-Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Peter Capizzi, who also hasn’t treated the reality star, believes she may have gotten jaw line contouring as well as Rhinoplasty to narrow the tip of her nose.
Bushnell has never outwardly confirmed any procedures, but she did clap back at her haters in a 2017 tweet:
“Man! I feel like there are just so many bullies out there. Why are people so unhappy & mean? Life is too precious to waste away with hate,” she wrote.
Amanda Stanton, who starred on Ben Higgins’ season of The Bachelor as well as Bachelor in Paradise, admitted that she had a boob job in February, 2018, revealing on her website that after giving birth to two daughters, she started to consider the idea of getting her breasts enhanced.
“To be honest, I don’t know a single mom who has breastfed in my world who didn’t *contemplate* the idea of getting a boob job or a lift of some sort,” she shared on her blog. “Before I was pregnant, I had full Bs. Once I had (my daughters) and breastfed them both for a year, they were basically… gone.”
