I do think in terms of diversity, it would give the franchise a chance to demonstrate they're not biased towards having a minority as a lead.
If they did Roberto would they have to do it at the expense of an Ali smear campaign? Poor broken hearted Roberto lost his love to the lure of celebrity?
I hope Roberto is not the next lead. Gawd - having him on the show would be about as boring as watching paint dry. I wish they'd stop recycling the lead, and bring in someone fresh for once.
From what I remember Roberto was very shy and softspoken and most of the time he and Ali made googly eyes at each other talking about how "hot" one another were. So I don't think this is really for Roberto either. Maybe he needs the money. He's an insurance agent, too, righT? Times are hard. Maybe he wants to get into the TV business.
Personally, I would prefer someone new, but if it were Sean, I'd definitely tune in.
ETA: I think they wouldn't smear Ali. Isn't she one of Fleiss' favorites? If anything they would gloss over it. If I recall neither Ali nor Roberto wanted to speak out about their breakup so I can't really see him smearing Ali or giving too much detail as to what went wrong.
The only thing I heard about their breakup (and who knows for sure if its fact or fiction!) was that Ali wanted to persue a public career and Roberto did not want that for them. So IF that is true, it does seem odd to me that he would turn around and have the exposure of being the Bachelor.
Personally I wish they would get back together. I would not mind watching another season with Roberto on it, but I would really rather they were together. They were just the cutest couple. :hrtbeat
If that is the case, it makes no sense for him to want to be on the Bachelor for a second time.
Exactly.... but then, what I read just might not be true. Because like mentioned above, they really did not talk much about their break up. It is hard to know when to believe the tabloids and when not to. So as a general rule, I just don't believe it until the people themselves say it.
