On July 12th, Logo announced a first of it’s kind dating show called “Finding Prince Charming” which features the Nation’s Most Eligible Gay Hearthrob and 13 contestants trying to win his heart. With shows like “The Bachelor/Bachelorette”, “Are You The One”, and “Bachelor in Paradise” – the idea of a dating show is not unheard of but there has yet to be a show or even a season, focused on a gay bachelor.
“Finding Prince Charming” finding home on Logo makes sense as Pamela Post, SVP of Original Programming for Logo states, the network is known for broadcasting LTBTQ+ focused content.
“Logo has a history of showcasing LGBTQ+ focused stories with memorable characters that transcend pop culture. Finding Prince Charming will take viewers on a whirlwind journey through modern love and relationships in a way that only Logo can do.”
Starting with only 13 suitors makes the show more realistic, without a large number of men to try to navigate through in too short a period of time, the contestant will be able to make deeper connections with the men week by week as they’re eliminated one at a time. There is also no big proposal planned at the end of this show, just a commitment to an exclusive relationship which takes off the pressure of feeling like you’ve got to move faster than either man may be ready for.
Lance Bass, who’s done everything from being in one of music’s most successful boybands to hosting acting on, and producing television shows is already a household name, so his presence as host is sure to be a powerful one.
“Finding Prince Charming” is set to air this fall and will be produced by Brian Graden Media. There are, unconfirmed, reports that the bachelor may be Robert Sepulveda Jr who is an interior designer currently residing in Georgia and he definitely fits the mold of the Nation’s most eligible (and handsome) gay bachelor.
