According to PEOPLE, the America’s Next Top Model winner — the modelling competition’s only deaf contestant — wound up getting dance partner Peta Murgatroyd’s foot in his face during a rehearsal.

Representatives tell the mag that the 26-year-old didn’t realize he had been hit until he started bleeding. He was then rushed to the hospital, requiring four stitches just above his eyebrow.

But nothing’s stopping him, as DiMarco immediately put his dancing shoes back on and began rehearsing for tonight’s season premiere.
