America's Got Talent has a familiar face as its new judge: the man responsible for One Direction

While performing a live stunt on America’s Got TalentRyan Stock, who calls himself the “Comedy Daredevil,” was accidentally struck in the neck by a flaming arrow shot by his fiancée.

Stock, known for doing stunts with drills and chainsaws, was readying for another death-defying feat in which his assistant/fiancée, AmberLynn Walker, was to shoot a flaming arrow at a target inside his mouth. She, however, missed and hit him in the neck. Watch the clip above!

Stock later took to Twitter to tell viewers that he was doing well, and “fortunate” to walk away from the mishap.

AGT judge Simon Cowell likes Stock’s act and thinks it would do well in Las Vegas.

Cowell told Billboard, “I think they like all that stuff in Vegas. It’s like watching a horror movie. You kind of don’t like it, but you do like it and you want to see more of it.”
