Rozlyn Papa -- the Bachelor contestant whose alleged physical relationship with a show producer got her kicked off Jake Pavelka's season last year -- asked producers if she could return to the ABC show to win Brad Womack's heart, a source tells

"Rozlyn wasn’t that interested in Jake, but she’s very interested in Brad," the insider tells Us. "She really wanted to come back on the show."

Producers seriously considered having her return.

"They always really liked her," the source tells Us. "Producers felt that if she went on camera and admitted to everything she did, they would agree to introduce her to Brad and let him decide. Brad’s certainly a guy who believes in second chances, so they thought it might work."

After several discussions with her, they ultimately decided to turn down her offer.

"She’s interested in Brad, but she’s not looking for a husband," the source tells Us. "He’s really looking for a wife. They only want people genuinely interested in finding love.”

Shooting for the show -- which debuts January 2011 -- is underway.
