Jordan Peele is "excited" about Rachel Lindsay being named the first black Bachelorette in the franchise's history, but he has his reservations about who will be her suitors on the show.
"You know it's not going to be populated with a bunch of brothers," the 37-year-old comedian joked while on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday. "There's going to be two brothers, and there's going to be, like, 20 white dudes, and they're all going to be saying, 'Hey, you know, I love Beyonce. I just wanted you to know that.'"
When asked what he felt would be an "appropriate number of African-American suitors" on the show, Peele quipped, "The representation should be equal to the representation in this country."
The Get Out director also insisted that there be a black Bachelor. "The next Bachelor gotta be black. The next Bachelor has got to be a brother," he exclaimed. "I'm off the market, it can't be me."
During an interview with Good Morning America earlier this week, Lindsay said she doesn't feel any "added pressure" about her historic season of The Bachelorette.
"I'm honored to have this opportunity and to represent myself as an African-American woman," the 31-year-old attorney explained. "My journey is I'm just trying to find love, and even though I'm an African-American woman, it's not different from any other Bachelorette."
