 Wondering where Jonathan Novack, Channel 2's resident cute weatherman, has gone? Don't worry, he'll be back on TV soon enough ... as a suitor for The Bachelorette.

In the new season of ABC's reality stalwart, which premiers May 24, Novack will be one of 24 men romancing Ali Fedotowsky, who left last season's Bachelor to keep her job at Facebook. (Well, so much for that.)

Novack has been the weekend weatherman at KPRC since 2007, working previously in Syracuse, Miami and Lubbock, and he's originally from Canton, Massachusetts. He might know the weather, but can he set off storms in Ali's heart?

Spoiler alert: Our go-to source for Bachelor secrets, Reality Steve, says that Novack gets the boot in Episode 4, when Ali weeds the pack from 11 to nine, after a group date involves the bachelors auditioning for a part on Broadway's The Lion King.

Oh well. There's plenty of bachelorettes that want you right here in Houston, Jonathan ...
