He wasn’t faking! Bachelor in ParadiseAlum Casey WoodsFans were updated on his condition after his dramatic departure from the show in the Monday, October 17 episode.

The reality series was airing and the Miami Beach native revealed via Instagram Story that he is still recovering after the ankle injury he sustained while fainting in Paradise. “3 broken bones. 3 operations. 4 months later. 1 sad guy here,” the creative director wrote alongside a photo of his right foot in a cast.

In a separate post, he added: “Just to be clear, this is my foot in a cast right now. Tonight. I haven’t walked in over 4 months.”

The advertising pro’s dramatic exit happened after he told Brittany GalvinThat Pete “Pizza Pete” IzzoThey accused her of going on BiP for “clout” after their disastrous one-on-one date. The model, aged 25, decided what to do with the pizzapreneur, 27-year-old Casey. He fell and then injured his ankle.

Although Casey was taken to hospital for serious injuries, some viewers wondered if he was exaggerating his injuries. Because of the greater number of women on the beach than men, it was likely that Casey — who wasn’t coupled up with anyone — wouldn’t have gotten a rose during the ceremony.
