This is just another ABC stunt revealed! Too bad Jonathan’s fake tears didn’t earn him the final rose!

Remember the episode when we saw weatherman Jonathan Novack break down in tears after messing up his kiss with Ali Fedotowsky on The Bachelorette? Well, we’ve learned the whole stunt was staged by ABC and that he actually used fake tears! “The producers took out this tear stick and had him rub it under his eyes,” a former Bachelorette contestant tells “They told him, ‘Ali will like it, you’ll look like a really sensitive guy!'”

Wow. This whole scenario makes complete sense considering the fact that Jonathan goes on TV on a daily basis for his job. I should have known better when the 30-year-old got all emotional after screwing up his lip-lock with Ali while filming the Barenaked Ladies music video. He’s basically a professional actor!

“They made him out to be so scared that day, but the guy seemed fine,” added the contestant. “He was laughing and cool about the whole acting scene thing.”

Unfortunately, Jonathan and the producers’ plan backfired as “he ended up looking like a dork who’d never kissed a girl, which couldn’t be more untrue.”

Like I said before, Ali was looking for a man, not a cry baby, so she sent him home!
