Finding Prince Charming is an American reality-TV dating show that premiered on the cable network Logo on September 8, 2016. It is hosted by actor and pop singer Lance Bass. Robert Seplveda Jr., an interior designer based in Atlanta, was cast as a suitor for the first season.

The concept of the show is modeled after The Bachelor, but instead of having a rose ceremony, it features a black tie ceremony. This is also the first dating show featuring non-heterosexual male contestants since Bravo's Boy Meets Boy and Fox's Playing It Straight.

Production

The American cable network Logo ordered production of Finding Prince Charming on July 12, 2016, and announced that Lance Bass would host of the series. Shortly after the announcement, reports of the alleged suitor began and filming began in July 2016. Brian Graden, Dave Mace, Fred Birckhead, Nick Murray, Chris McCarthy, Pamela Post and Stevenson Greene are recognized as the series' executive producers; it is produced and distributed by Brian Graden Media.

On October 13, 2016, the series was renewed for a second installment. Applications for season two became available on November 3, 2016, and closed on November 16, 2016. Five suitors would be submitted to public voting and the winning suitor would be featured on season two as a contestant. Voting begins on November 18 to November 23, 2016.

Format

A cast of thirteen gay suitors will live together in one house, with a Prince Charming, in the search for love. Each week the Prince Charming will go on group or solo dates with different men. At the end of the episode, Prince Charming will have to eliminate contestants in a "black tie" ceremony, where black ties will be given to the guys he wants to keep and get to know more, while the guys who do not get a black tie will be eliminated.

Controversy

A week before the premiere, an industry trade report revealed that series star Robert Sepulveda Jr. had previously worked as an escort. The following week, he discussed having turned to sex work while in his 20s, and also spoke about a pornographic video released by what he characterized as a disgruntled ex-boyfriend. Logo said it was aware of Sepulveda's history. Contestant Chad Aaron Spodick claimed he had been fired from his job following the controversy.
