Chris Harrison had better watch out, because there’s someone out there who may just be coming for his job. Okay, so Lance Bass probably has zero interest in hosting The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, but that’s because the new show he’s been hired to host will be way more groundbreaking.
Finding Prince Charming is the very first reality dating show that will feature an all-gay cast, something LGBTQ fans everywhere have been hoping The Bachelor would do for at least one season given its 20-year history. Well now they’re too late to the party.
The premise itself is pretty similar to The Bachelor, in that 13 “suitors” will share a household and try to win over the main guy. Each week, someone’s heart will be broken after he’s sent home before making his match.
Like we said, it’s the first time an all-gay cast will ever be featured on reality television. Sure, there was that Boy Meets Boy thing back in 2008, but only half of those suitors were gay. This one sounds like the real thing, and we can’t help but think it’s about time.
Sounds like Bass will be the perfect host for this kind of thing, too. In addition to being a proud LGBTQ community supporter, he’s also got that contagious smile. Plus he’s just so darned nice. He’s bound to make the rejected guys feel a little bit better about themselves on their way out.
Then there’s the fact that Bass has proved a few times over that he’s got the chops to host his own show. Between the stage presence he developed with N’SYNC and the dozens of parts/cameos he’s had on scripted and unscripted shows since then, we’d say he knows a thing or two about dazzling the crowd.
He’s won us over, at any rate.
Sadly, even though the show is scheduled to premiere this fall on U.S. cable station Logo, we’re no sure if it will pop up in Canada. Fingers crossed!
