The 29-year-old Puerto Rican insurance agent is reportedly in the running to become the next bachelor on ABC’s hit reality dating show.

Martinez successfully competed for the heart of Ali Fedotowsky on the sixth season of ABC’s The Bachelorette. But after an 18-month engagement, the couple called it quits in November 2011.

Now that he’s back on the market, Martinez is reportedly being considered to star as The Bachelor next season, according to People.

“It’s far too soon to say who the next Bachelor will be, but Roberto is definitely someone producers are considering,” a source close to the show tells the magazine.

While there’s no word on whether Martinez is interested in pursuing love all over again on reality TV, the source says he fits the bill.

“Obviously there’s a lot about Roberto that is appealing,” the source says. “Still, they also want to see who from Emily Maynard‘s current season might pop with viewers and are weighing if there are any contenders there. It’s just too soon to tell.”
