The first LGBT-only dating show is finally here! It functions like Bachelor, it's hosted by Lance Bass, and it'll be all gay all the time!
Logo TV Network's Finding Prince Charming is currently in production, and according to their press release, it's an gay competition to "win the heart of the nation's most eligible gay heartthrob." Logo's SVP promises a "whirlwind journey through modern love and relationships." Lance Bass, former NSYNC member who came out in 2006 and married Michael Turchin in 2014, is the perfect fit.
If you're thinking that this has been done before-- you're both right and wrong. Bravo's Boy Meets Boy had both straight and gay male participants, and the gay bachelor didn't know which was which. If he chose the gay participant, they would split earnings from the show...but if he chose the straight suitor, only the straight guy would get the money. Hmmm...
That isn't the case this time. Thirteen "charming and gorgeous" gay bachelors will live under one roof as they "grapple to stand out from the crowd all hoping for a moment of intimate connection, romance and, perhaps, true love." Like ABC's The Bachelor, one suitor will be chosen to engage in an exclusive relationship with Mr. Handsome, who's probably (most likely) wealthy too.
The bachelor in pursuit of love has yet to be revealed, but some gossip sites are pointing towards an interior designer who also happens to be a mega-heartthrob: Robert Sepúlveda Jr. He seriously looks like he's straight out of a Disney princess movie. And he writes smart words, too. Check out some of his pics below.
Finally, press play on this fantabulous video below. And then go take a cold shower.
Will you be watching? I'm still waiting on the first black Bachelor, but baby steps, right?
