The world squealed with delight when rumors broke out that Roberto Martinez would be the next Bachelor. Who didn’t fall in love with Hottie Dimples right along with former Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky? Well, now there’s as much as $750,000 more reasons to love him because US Weekly reports that Roberto’s negotiating a major paycheck for his turn as The Bachelor.

According to a source, "He wants a deal near what Emily [Maynard] asked for, around $750,000," but even the current Bachelorette reportedly only got somewhere around $250,000 to play the Rose Mistress. However, the source says that Roberto has the upper hand in his negotiating his salary because “the network will give him pretty much anything." Honestly, ABC, he’s worth every penny!

Whether he gets his record-setting payday or not, his ex-fiancee Ali wishes him only the best. She even told Wetpaint Entertainment that, when it comes to Roberto dating 25 women on TV: “I hope he finds happiness.”

Aww, no wonder they're still friends on Facebook.
