The Bachelorette's "Weatherman" Revealed as Backup on Skating With the Stars

Jonathan Novak ABC

UPDATE: An ABC rep tells us, "Jonathan Novack was the backup in case we lost anyone in the trainer period. He trained for four weeks, then once the show started we released him. We do not think he's going to skate."

---------------------------------

Looks like Jonathan "The Weatherman" Novack might have another chance at love winning something!

After enduring heartbreak on The Bachelorette, then going home empty-handed on the inaugural season of Bachelor Pad, sources tell us Novack has been working on Skating With the Stars

Here's the deal:

Weatherman has reportedly been a Skating understudy all along and was just waiting in the wings for his time to shine on the ice.

So now with Disney star Brandon Mychal Smith leaving the show due to illness, Jonathan is ready to jump on the Skating roster. Since the show is already in its semifinals round, we hope he's been practicing.

Elsewhere in the Bachelor realm, the latest crop of ladies competing for Brad Womack's heart have been revealed—and it's same ol', same ol'.

So without further ado, meet the 30 new (young) gals of The Bachelor's upcoming 15th season:
