ABC’s “The Bachelor” sued for racial bias

Class action lawsuit notes that no person of color has ever been a Bachelor or Bachelorette

Because everyone should have the chance to turn the quest for true love into TV fodder, two black men will file a class-action racial discrimination lawsuit today against the ABC reality dating shows The Bachelor and The Bachelorette.

Football players Nathaniel Claybrooks and Christopher Johnson note that—in 10 years and 23 combined seasons—no person of color has ever been a Bachelor or Bachelorette. Their suit targets ABC, Warner Horizon Television, Next Entertainment, NZK Productions and the show’s executive producer Mike Fleiss.
