The Challenge host TJ Lavin, 41, lies bloodied in hospital bed after BMX stunt goes wrong

He knows the show must go on.

And that seems to be the exact mindset that MTV The Challenge host TJ Lavin had on Monday, after getting injured in a BMX accident in Las Vegas over the weekend.

The 41-year-old was in high spirits as he talked about his stunt-gone-wrong in a Instagram video to fans posted shortly after the accident.

The Vegas-native lacerated his face and injured his knee in the BMX accident over the weekend and documented the entire thing via Instagram Stories.

One video clip shows the accident itself, with Lavin shouting out after missing a jump at a dirt course. 

‘That sucked, man,’ he said. 

‘So I overshot the jump. The new jump that I’ve been working on all month, I finally hit it … and overshot it by a lot. Yeah … 41, still having fun,’ Lavin recounted the mishap from his hospital bed.

Luckily, he escaped major injury.

‘And the knee came back, no knee problems. So, just little stitches here and there. No worries. Keeping it real.’
