Former NFL great Terrell Owens admits that he is ready for a move into television as the retired wide-receiver makes a play for the lead on The Bachelor.

The TV show has been running for many years in American and is very popular with its niche of fans.

But during its time, there has never been a black Bachelor occupying the lead of the show.

Owens says he would like to be the first, and speaking to TMZ Sports, he even questioned the reasoning behind the show's reluctance make a change-up of their lead man.

"You heard that? From two white guys. I should be the Bachelor. Holla back," Owens told TMZ Sports.

"There hasn't been a black bachelor. I think it's always been interesting as to why there hasn't been one.

"Maybe they feel like there is not an audience for it. I'm a guy who has good taste and good quality. I've had my fair share of women and I think it's time [to go on The Bachelor]."

Owens believes it's the perfect time for him to take on the role of The Bachelor, as he points to the stage in his life that he's at.

The former San Francisco 49ers wide-out wants to find someone to grow old with.

"I am definitely prepared to do bigger and better things with my life. I'm looking for a special someone," he added.

"I've been through the ups and downs, and now I'm ready for someone grow old with."
