Ali Fedotowsky, who chose Roberto Martinez on The Bachelorette two summers ago, is said to be less than thrilled about rumors that say he’s in talks to be The Bachelor.
Roberto and Ali split after 18 months together, and sure enough, he’s being talked about as the star of Season 17 of The Bachelor, slated for early January.
“Roberto never shared his side of the breakup, and Ali is terrified about what he would say on the show and how she would come off,” a source explains.
Who knows why she would care about a breakup that wasn’t even that bad (supposedly), now that she’s faded from the spotlight (mostly), but whatever.
Luckily for Ali, he may turn down the opportunity.
“He’s very happy being out of the spotlight,” a source close to the hunky former minor league ballplayer and current San Diego insurance agent explains.
“He hasn’t ruled it out 100 percent, but don’t bet on it.”
If Roberto Martinez were to become The Bachelor, he would be the first minority star in 25 seasons (including eight Bachelorettes) of the ABC franchise.
None of the 16 Bachelors are married to their final rose recipient, although Jason Mesnick married Molly Malaney, his runner-up from that season.
