Roberto Martinez is the next Bachelor and/or has no interest in being the next Bachelor

Roberto Martinez will star in the next edition of The Bachelor, if you believe one tabloid report, or he is totally uninterested and hasn’t signed on at all, if you believe another. Roberto broke up with Ali Fedotowsky last November, and would be the show’s first non-white star if he was cast.

Life & Style reported that “a production insider” told the magazine, “He’s already signed the contract.” But Us Weekly reports that “a source” insists, “They are asking him to be the next bachelor, but he has no interest as of right now.” And E! Online insists producers haven’t asked him but are considering many people.
