NASHVILLE, TN (CNN) - Two Nashville men are suing the producers of the television show "The Bachelor." They say the show does not include enough people of color.
And, that "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" have never had a black man or woman in the title role.
In order for it to be 23 seasons, 16 on "Bachelor", seven on "Bachelorette" we haven't had that opportunity, because in my opinion all of the shows that people of color do have, it's always argumentative or something that sheds a bad light. We never get a show that explains and shows that we also do have love and affection toward one another.

In a statement from the show's creator, it says the complaint is baseless.
It adds there have been various participants of color throughout the series' history, and the producers have been consistently - and publicly - vocal about seeking diverse candidates for both programs.
