“The Bachelorette” alum Dean Michael Unglert is spending Christmas in an unexpected place… a hospital.

On Monday, Unglert revealed that he had to be airlifted from the Swiss Alps to a hospital, where he underwent surgery for a dislocated hip and fractured femur.

Along with a pic from his hospital bed, Dean wrote, “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."

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 🥴 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! looks like i’ll be celebrating xmas in a hospital bed this year 😂

He revealed that “3 screws and a plate” were put into his leg.
