Who has time for clouds?
Weatherman Jonathan Novack turning reality TV into his new career, hits TheBachelor Pad
If we've learned anything about reality television, it's that taking a group of good-looking people with flair for drama and a taste for fame and putting them in a house together is pretty much a no-fail recipe for a must-see guilty pleasure.
So when we heard that the producers behind The Bachelor and The Bachelorette has assembled an "all-star" cast from past seasons to live together and compete for $250,000 in a new show called The Bachelor Pad, which premieres Aug. 9, the only question we had was 'Why haven't they thought of this before?"
Fresh after getting the brush-off from bachelorette Ali, Houston's favorite cute weatherman, Jonathan Novack, will be competing — and his Bachelorette nemesis Craig will be there as well.
In fact, the cast is heavily oriented towards contestants from the last three seasons, with three guys from Ali's season, five guys rejected by Jillian, six girls who competed for the love of Jake and two castoffs from Jason's season, plus three more girls from separate early seasons.

Many are comparing this to CBS's Big Brother, but with a cast that has so many ready-made rivalries and plenty of sex appeal, we'd compare it more to MTV's Real World/Road Rules Challenge.
Two other notorious Texans will be making an appearance on the show. Wes, the series' most infamous villain for admitting he came on not to woo Jillian (he had a girlfriend back home) but to jump-start his country music career, hails from Austin. And former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader and Dancing with the Stars contestant Melissa Rycroft, dumped by fiance Jason on national television, will be co-hosting with series stalwart Chris Harrison.
Will you be watching The Bachelor Pad? Which contestants should be brought back and who should be banned from TV forever? And does the weatherman have a chance this time?
