Ever wondered why there's never been a black Bachelor or Bachelorette?
African-American football players Christopher Johnson and Nathaniel Claybrooks are planning to sue the show's producers for racial discrimination.
The proposed class-action lawsuit takes aim at the reality TV love-fest for not featuring a non-white bachelor or bachelorette over a whopping 23 seasons in only 10 years.
The pair allege that their skin colour is the reason they were rejected at an open call to be the bachelor in Nashville last year, TMZ reports.
According to Christopher, a producer asked him what he was doing there, then he and Nathaniel were pushed to the side of the room and left out of the normal audition process. Neither were called back.
Bachelor creator and executive producer Mike Fleiss, ABC Television and Warner Horizon Television are the main parties being sued.
Fleiss addressed the issue of racial diversity on the program in an Entertainment Weekly interview last year.
"I think Ashley is 1/16th Cherokee Indian, but I cannot confirm," Fleiss said of Bachelorette Ashley Herbert.
"But that is my suspicion! We really tried, but sometimes we feel guilty of tokenism. Oh, we have to wedge African-American chicks in there! We always want to cast for ethnic diversity, it's just that for whatever reason, they don't come forward. I wish they would."
