Lawsuit Planned over “The Bachelor”, “The Bachelorette” and alleged racial discrimination

On Wednesday, April 18, two Nashville residents – described in a press release as “an All-American football player and an aspiring National Football League player, respectively” – are going to sue over what they say is an intentional exclusion of “persons of color” from the ABC reality television programs “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette.”

“Over 10 years and a combined total of 23 seasons of ‘The Bachelor’ and ‘The Bachelorette,’ neither show has ever featured a single person of color in the central role of the ‘Bachelor’ or ‘Bachelorette,’” a release on behalf of a group of law firms reads.

The lawsuit is planned to be filed in federal court in Nashville, but reporters around the country, for obvious reasons, have been emailed alerts about it.

Plaintiffs Nathaniel Claybrooks and Christopher Johnson, working with co-counsel George Barrett of Barrett Johnston, LLC, Cyrus Mehri of Mehri & Skalet, PLLC and Byron Perkins of Perkins-Law, LLC are planning to sue American Broadcast Companies, Inc., Warner Horizon Television, Inc., Next Entertainment, Inc., NZK Productions, Inc., and Michael Fleiss, the executive producer of The Bachelor and Bachelorette franchises, “on behalf of all persons of color who have applied for the role of the Bachelor or Bachelorette.”
