Just two weeks after two black men accused The Bachelor and The Bachlerotte of racial discrimination, ABC announced that a contestant vying for Emily Maynard’s love is African American.
We don’t know much about the contestant so far, but we can tell you this:
- His name is Lerone
- He’s 29
- He’s a real estate consultant
- He lives In Laguna Beach, California
- He has zero tattoos
Nathaniel Claybrooks and Christopher Johnson claim that they were denied a chance to appear on the popular dating show because they were black and they filed a lawsuit against ABC, the production company and the producer of the franchise.
Because of TV lead times, it appears that ABC cast Lerone well before the lawsuit was filed.
