Lance Bass is set to host a new reality romance show—and it’s like a gay version of The Bachelor.
A cast of all gay men will compete to win the love of one man, which sounds way juicier than a regular old rose ceremony. The guys will all live together and be eliminated weekly until the man looking for love chooses someone. They won’t marry, but will instead commit to an “exclusive relationship.”
The show will air on Logo, and is called Finding Prince Charming. In a press release announcing the show, the star is described as “one of the nation's most eligible gay heartthrobs,” and he will have 13 men vying for his heart. It is currently filming now and is set to air in the fall.
Lance is an expert in the area, taking his own love to reality television when in February 2015 he married artist Michael Turchin in an E! special titled Lance Loves Michael: The Lance BassWedding. He came out publicly in 2006 with a People magazine cover. In 2007, he spoke about being gay in his book, Out of Sync, and he’s participated in GLAAD and LGBT community fundraisers and campaigns.
Gay dating reality first hit screens in 2003 with Bravo's series, Boy Meets Boy, a reality show in which one gay man met 15 potential male suitors and chose one as his love, but it had a twist. The man looking for a mate wasn't told that the contestants included both gay and straight men.
