Gay dating tv show
The show aired back in 2003 and followed a leading man, who did not know that his mix of 15 suitors included both gay and heterosexual men.
The show was not renewed for a second season In addition to hosting , and hosted the Sirius XM pop culture radio program, "Dirty Pop." Last week, Amber Rose made her debut as a talk show host and kicked off the weekly series by giving some helpful dating advice.
Same-sex relationships are equal — but different — from straight ones, and watching this effort to make them fit the mold is cringe-worthy, but also results in the most interesting moments on the show, which is otherwise a cookie-cutter endeavor.
From its basic framework down to the attitudes expressed by the contestants, and especially by Prince Charming himself, what we have here is a “gay” dating show constrained by straight rules.
Logo has greenlit “Finding Prince Charming,” a reality dating competition featuring a cast of all gay men. “Finding Prince Charming” will include a cast of 13 suitors.
All the men will live in the same house together, as they compete to win the heart of one of the “nation’s most eligible gay heartthrob.” The contestants will be eliminated one-by-one, and in the final episode, the heartthrob will choose his one ideal man to “commit to an exclusive relationship,” per Logo.
But the TV landscape is littered with gay-themed shows that bombed. Some were well-intentioned, others were crass and exploitative.
All were yanked off the air before anyone could even think about a second season.
“Logo has a long history of showcasing LGBTQ-focused stories with memorable characters that transcend pop culture,” said Pamela Post, SVP of original programming for Logo.
