'Bachelorette' Contestant

Emergency Spinal Surgery

1/6/2012 10:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kiptyn Locke
Kiptyn Locke -- a contestant on "The Bachelorette" who jumped to the show "Bachelor Pad" -- just underwent 4 1/2 hours of emergency surgery to repair severely ruptured discs in his neck ... that were perilously compressing against his spine.

Neck injuries are no joke ... but we're told Locke -- who is currently dating former "Bachelor" contestant Tenley Molzahn (left) -- is expected to make a full recovery. It's unclear how Kiptyn injured himself.

Tenley says, "There are definitely angels involved in this emergency."

He was trying to give himself a BJ and the harness slipped.

Looks like whern the parents were naming these two, they tossed up some Scrabble tiles and came up with their names when they landed on a table top.

Well, I guess it's better than how they come up with names in China. Think about that one - old joke.

Kiptyn and Tenley? Excuse me, I need to go vomit now. I'll be back to slap their parents upside the head when I finish.
