An LGBT-marketed reality show is set to hit the television with Finding Prince Charming, a dating show for the gays.
A gay bachelor show will be aired soon by Logo network, a seemingly familiar format with ABC network’s Bachelor and Bachelorette reality shows which has gathered millions of fans worldwide.
Finding Prince Charming is currently being filmed in a Los Angeles-area mansion with former N-Sync chart topper-turned television host, Lance Bass as the host.
Just like in other dating show format, all men will have to live under one house and will be eliminated one by one as the end of the contest nears, Variety said.
The final episodes will show who will be picked as the prince charming who shall “commit to an exclusive relationship.”
“Finding Prince Charming’ will take viewers on a whirlwind journey through modern love and relationships in a way that only Logo can do,” Pamela Post, SVP of original programming for Logo said.
Finding Prince Charming will be aired with Robert Sepulveda Jr. as its first gay bachelor. Celebrity Dirty Laundry said he is a a Puerto Rican-born interior designer that lives in Atlanta. The show will welcome 13 male contestants.
CDL noted that television viewers will be presented with a fresh perspective of reality dating shows sans the drama and “backstabbing or manipulation that comes with several women vying for the hand of another Chris Soules or, dare I even say, Juan Pablo Galavais.”
Though Finding Prince Charming is not a spinoff of the first reality dating shows of ABC, Logo is speculated to threaten the former’s ratings with this new show.
