Dean Unglert is living anything but a normal life. From living in a van to traveling the world — the Bachelorette alum is a completely different person from when viewers met him during Rachel Lindsay’s season.
His adventurous ways got the best of him recently. The reality star was forced to spend the holidays in a hospital due to an injury he got while skiing.
The accident in the Swiss Alps caused him to have to get surgery for dislocated hip and fractured femur.
He posted a photo of himself in a hospital bed alongside a caption that read: ‘all my life i’ve dreamt about skiing the swiss alps. how could you not? they’re huge and beautiful and have some of the best snow in the world. today, however, was not my day. i was sending just a liiiiitle too hard and took a nasty spill which ultimately put me here. and since this is probably going to be the only pic i get in switzerland, i figured i gotta post it.’
He went on to explain: ‘the swiss mountain rescue blew my mind today. it took me about an hour to flag someone down for help but once i did, i was airborne and in surgery in less than an hour. a dislocated hip and fractured femur put 4 screws and a plate in my leg but things could have been so much worse and for that i am extremely grateful!’
The Bachelor in Paradise alum was released five days later.
While he was in the Switzerland hospital, his girlfriend Caelynn Miller came to his rescue. The two left the European country together and he even uploaded a photo of her carrying his bags since he has to use crutches to walk.
Although Caelynn recently revealed that she didn’t know if Dean was ‘the one’ for her, it’s great to see that she is by his side during his worst moment.
