So sad! Roberto reportedly denied an offer to be the next ‘Bachelor’ because he’s already found  love! Read on for more details!

Roberto Martinez reportedly won’t be going on a second journey to find love — and it’s not because he’s taking a break from love!

The sexy 29-year-old insurance agent was reportedly offered to be the next Bachelor for $500,000 , but turned down the generous offer for his new model girlfriend, Kara Ramos, according to Star magazine.

“There was instant attraction between Roberto and Kara,” a source tells the mag. “He fell for her so hard that a little while after they met, he attended a wedding in Florida and then made a detour to Connecticut before heading home to the West Coast, just to see her again. They spent a romantic weekend together and really cemented their budding relationship.”

But once news broke that Roberto was considering being the next bachelor, Kara reportedly wanted to end the romance. The 26-year-old model was planning on visiting him in San Diego for a weekend and cancelled her trip!

“Kara was crushed when she found out, and Roberto felt so bad that he offered to reimburse her for her plan tickets. She’s really attracted to him, but she was afraid of becoming too attached — and then seeing him meet someone else on the show,” a source tells the mag.

But Roberto decided the big bucks wasn’t worth losing a girl he was crazy about!

“Roberto already knows what it takes to have a love relationship played out on national television, and he’d rather have his privacy now with a girl he’s really crazy about,” a source tells the mag. “Since he’d made that decision, Kara has plans to move to L.A. so they’ll be closer.”

Hmm! Well, since it sounds like Roberto is out of the running — will Sean Lowe be a done deal?
