Transcript for ‘Bachelorette’ contestant Peter Giannikopoulos talks about his scary COVID-19 test
We do want to turn to the latest bombshell in this season of "The bachelorette." One opening up about his covid diagnosis. Will reeve has all the details. Hey, will, good morning. Reporter: Hey, good morning, whit. Murphy's law state what is can go wrong will. Maybe we need to rename it Peter's law because his covid news was only the beginning of his tough time. It's been a whirlwind week for bachelorette contestant Peter giannikopoulos. How are you doing? Reporter: Just as he made his debut as a suitor meeting tayshia for the first time Peter revealing on Instagram he's in quarantine after testing positive for covid-19 writing, I felt lousy for a few days but didn't believe I would contract the virus when I've been wearing a mask in public, washing and sanitizing handsegularly and following social distancing protocol during work. This is an example no matter who we are or what we do, we are all vulnerable. We're going to make some blueberry pancakes with a twist. Reporter: If that weren't bad enough, the fitness buff and foodie who shares workouts and recipes online says the anxiety from learning he had coronavirus caused him to pass out while driving and crash his car into a guardrail. Sharing this photo of a gash on his nose writing, all I remember was waking up to people shouting for help as I was in a deep daze and confusion. I didn't know where I was, how I got there or what happened. The 32-year-old real estate adviser from Boston wrapped up filming of "The bachelorette" two months ago. No word on whether he's quarantining alone. We'll have to wait and see if he found love with tayshia or if he's still single. Peter was one of four new guys added to the mix as tayshia took over this season and, of course, we wish him the best in his recovery from everything and wish him the best on his journey on "The bachelorette" which, of course, airs-on-abc Tuesdays at 8:00, 7:00 central, robin.
