Fans of dating reality show The Bachelor who have long pined for a gay version of the franchise will be keen to know that their wish has finally been granted. Well, kind of.
LOGO TV announced on Tuesday that they will be debuting a new Bachelor-esque show called Finding Prince Charming that will feature a gay male ‘bachelor’ and 13 suitors vying for his, er, heart. Lance Bass is slated to host, playing the role of Chris Harrison.
The series follows 13 suitors living together and competing “to win the heart of one of the nation’s most eligible gay heartthrobs,” according to the network. The ultimate goal is as you’d expect: an intimate connection, true love, and a committed, 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, promised in a statement.
Meanwhile, TMZ reports that Prince Charming is Robert Sepulveda Jr., “an interior designer with Puerto Rican roots who now lives in ATL.”
The only hitch? No word whether The Bachelor producers are in on this spin-off or have any problems (legally or otherwise) with the show.
Also no word as to if UnREAL will be inspired to take Everlasting into gay territory. Rachel is always looking to make history…

I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of homophobia, xenophobia and hate that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word. Hate will never overshadow love. 🌈🙏🏼🌹🕊 #lovewins
