Jonathan Novack, a.k.a. the Weather Man, was a polarizing figure on Ali Fedotowsky‘s “Bachelorette” season. Read what he has to say about Craig M., his reputation as a tattle tale and who he thinks Ali would be best with.
Why didn’t things work out between you and Ali?
There just wasn’t a lot of chemistry there. Whether that was a result of not spending enough time with her, I’m not sure. I would say in the end the spark wasn’t there, unfortunately.
On the Craig McKinnon problems:
It wasn’t just me he was starting with. It was Jesse, it was Justin, it was other guys too and so I just felt like it was a problem just for the house. I defended myself pretty well and I think any guy in the house will agree that I would come back with great comebacks but when he almost started a fist fight with Jesse B., that’s when I thought it was starting to get out of hand and somebody needed to say something.
Does you think it’s fair that people call you a tattle tale?
You don’t see a lot that happens. Craig isn’t the only guy I didn’t like in the house but I didn’t say anything about them because I don’t talk trash about people. But I legitimately thought there was a problem with Craig in this house, especially with the Jesse B. thing. That went on all night. The producers kept having to pull him away from Jesse. He kept trying to get Jesse B. to basically punch him. That’s why I used the word “dangerous.” Somebody who is trying to get in physical fights with the guys in the house, what is he going to be like in a relationship?
You seemed nervous a lot, were you nervous during the show?
There were times I was nervous but most of the time I was just having fun getting to go out on these dates with Ali. Most of the time I was having a really good experience getting to know some of these guys that I became friends with. The most nerve-wracking parts were the rose ceremonies. Those were stressful for everybody. I wear my heart on my sleeve so you saw it more than most people but three-quarters of the time I was having a great time.
Do you like the other guys from the show?
No, I definitely do. Just not everybody. But I love Kasey, I think he’s a good guy. I love Tyler V., he’s hilarious. Hunter, great guy, Jesse B, great guy, I mean all these guys are just fantastic. I hope to be friends with them for life as well. There are a few people I”m obviously not fond of like Craig M, some people I didn’t get to know very well, the first night guys and a couple of the second night guys, but the Top 11 is really where we started bonding and I expect to keep in touch and stay friends with them a long time.
Who do you think is the one for Ali?
Out of all the guys I think she might be able to fall in love with, I would think Roberto would be up there and maybe Kirk. Out of all the guys in the house, I think Roberto is the most stand-up, straight-up guy. He was a solid dude and she seems to see that in him, so I wonder if he is going to be her pick.
