TV Star Fractures Spine During ”Drunk, Stupid” Stunt for MTV’s First Date
Every star wants their Almost Famous roof-jumping moment, but sometimes a dramatic reenactment can come with consequences.
Blake Anderson (pictured, right), star of Comedy Central’s Workaholics, injured his spine and “anal area” in December after he jumped off a one-story building onto a ping pong table while filming a party scene for MTV’s First Date in Los Angeles, Calif.
According to a 911 call obtained by TMZ, Blake landed on his feet but began to feel pain around his spine and bum following the stunt. According to Blake’s father, the pain got so bad that the TV star could no longer stand or walk. Yikes!
Turns out, Blake ended up fracturing his spine. Ouch.
"I was drunk and it was stupid," Blake told MTV after the incident. "Don't jump off roofs into hard surface areas."
There’s no word on if Blake’s injury will affect his filming schedule, but he appears to be in good spirits now.
