13 hunky gay bachelors will compete on America’s first gay dating show. The show is produced by Logo TV and former MTV exec Brian Graden‘s production company. (Graden produced South Park for Comedy Central, so this should be good.) “Finding Prince Charming” will be hosted by former NSYNC boy bander Lance Bass.
The show will make history and “feature all gay men competing to win the heart of the Nation’s most eligible gay heartthrob,” says the LBGT network.
‘Boy Meets Boy’, a dating show on Bravo that aired in 2003, had the worst show idea ever with gay bachelors competing with both gay and “secretly straight” rivals for one gay bachelor. This time around the 13 suitors will all be gay, live in a house together, and let the all-gay drama unfold. According to Logo, “One by one, the suitors are eliminated until the heartthrob chooses one ideal man to sweep him off of his feet and commit to an exclusive relationship.” The show will air in the fall. We look forward to the first gay on-air makeout sessions that other dating shows feature, and the ensuing freakout from uptight anti-gay marriage conservatives.
“Logo has a long history of showcasing LGBTQ-focused stories with memorable characters that transcend pop culture,” says Pamela Post, SVP of Original Programming for Logo. “‘Finding Prince Charming’ will take viewers on a whirlwind journey through modern love and relationships in a way that only Logo can do.”
