“Bachelor in Paradise” star Justin Reich never saw it coming — a downhill bump caused him to slam so hard on the ground he blacked out twice with devastating injuries.
Justin — who appeared on ‘BiP’ two seasons ago and on Kaitlyn Bristowe‘s ‘Bachelorette‘ season in 2015 — tells us he was in his hometown of Chicago 2 weeks ago riding his longboard when, out of nowhere, a bad turn flung him off his board.
Check it out … Justin says he woke up in an ambulance where, again, he blacked out. The injuries are pretty gnarly — a collapsed ear canal, concussion and fractured skull. He was in the ICU for 2 days but is scheduled to return next week.
The big worry? Possibly permanent loss of hearing … and in case you’re wondering … he copped to not wearing a helmet.
