Gays can get married now, so a gay dating show is obviously a step in the right direction, right?
Logo’s newest reality series could either be totally groundbreaking or a complete disaster. Finding Prince Charming is the first Bachelor-esque dating show that features an entire cast of gay men.
Lance Bass hosts this reality dating show in which Robert Sepúlveda Jr. is tasked with finding love in a house with 13 handsome gay men. We’re all wondering how much shade and incestuous hooking up is bound to happen. The first trailer looks like The A-List meets The Real Housewives meets The Bachelor with a little bit of Bad Girls Club in the mix.
But in the dramatic first look, there’s a hint of brotherhood coming through that remains one of the best parts of being gay. Could that be a shining quality that sets this apart from the degrading reputation that most dating shows have developed? Or is this doomed to repeat the cycle?
Finding Prince Charming premieres September 8, 9/8c on Logo. Watch the trailer below:
