Nick Viall Dresses As Bachelor Peter Weber For Halloween, Pokes Fun At His Windmill Escapades And Recent Injury

Peter Weber is currently in the midst of filming his season of The Bachelor, but that doesn’t mean he’s off-limits to be the butt of a Halloween joke.

Former bachelor Nick Viall dressed up as Weber on Saturday night for a party.

“Just a Pilot on a flight for love .. will probably crash into a windmill tonight,” Viall wrote on Instagram. In the photo he’s wearing a pilot get-up, holding a rose, and sporting a bandage on his head.

Bachelorette fans aren’t soon to forget Hannah Brown’s windmill escapades. It was teased for weeks that she’d had sex in a windmill with one of her contestants. Finally, we learned that it was Weber during their Fantasy Suite date in Greece. We learned during the finale that it happened four times.

Viall can’t dress up as Weber without a good windmill reference.

Bachelor Peter Weber’s recent head injury

Viall is also poking fun at the “freak accident” Pilot Pete experienced a couple of weeks ago.

Entertainment Tonight reported that the bachelor injured his head while filming in Costa Rica. Radar Online reported that Weber received 22 stitches on his face.

“According to multiple reports, the 28-year-old reality star, who was recently announced as the franchise’s new lead, was rushed to the hospital and underwent surgery after injuring himself while getting onto a golf cart while filming the ABC series,” reported ET.

Host Chris Harrison gave this statement to ET regarding the incident:

“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. He’s still the dashing, handsome pilot we’ve all dreamed of.”

It seems fellow Bachelor Nation members are fans of Viall’s costume as well. Tayshia Adams commented with three crying, laughing emojis and Elyse Dehlbom commented with three clapping hands.

Dean Unglert commented: “i don’t get it,” probably kidding. His comment received several comments explaining Viall’s costume and several explaining the concept of sarcasm.

“… it’s his Halloween costume. He is dressed up as Pete,” responded one fan to Unglert’s comment.

“is it weird for you to read comments from ppl who don’t get sarcasm? Bc it’s weird for me & I’m not even involved,” commented another.
