The Bachelorette Australia's Blake Coleman may be known for his tough exterior but the reality TV villain appears to have had a rough experience in his past.
According to The Daily Mail Australia a source claims the 29-year-old entrepreneur suffered a work injury in 2011 and it resulted in a permanently-damaged left thumb.
The source, who worked at the law firm representing Blake at the time, said Blake's thumb was amputated following the freak accident.
"Blake was working with a company that installs rubber surfacing for public playgrounds when his left thumb was partly amputated by a faulty rubber extruding machine," the source told the news site.
"It was reattached, but his left thumb cannot be straightened out. He would have received a substantial payment for this injury."
Hmmm, his thumb appears to be moving though.
Wonder if he's told, Sophie about the incident?
