ABC appears to be recycling its love connections again.

Former “Bachelorette” winner Roberto Martinez has reportedly been tapped to star as “The Bachelor” next season, according to Life & Style.

“They chose him because he’s very likable,” a production insider tells the mag. “He’s already signed the contract.”

Martinez, a 29-year-old insurance agent, won the sixth season of “The Bachelorette” in 2010, stealing Ali Fedotowsky’s heart and the final rose.

But their love story turned into a grim fairytale, as TV romances so often do, when the couple called off their engagement after 18 months.
