Robert Sepúlveda Jr.'s Sexy Shoot Surfaces As FINDING PRINCE CHARMING Star Tries To Downplay Escorting Past Comments (0)

(All images in this post © Don Hanover, meaning he can sue you if you use them without his permission.)

Once it became clear that Robert Sepúlveda Jr.—Logo's Finding Prince Charming star—really was an escort in the past, a friend showed me these images from a shoot he did with the “very nice” guy in Florida 10 years ago, after Sepúlveda had flaked out on a previously scheduled shoot. Rscf© Don Hanover_BC He's only 33 now, in spite of his take-me-seriously salt-and-pepper hair (we won't even discuss his take me? seriously?? endowment—there ain't a thing wrong with him physically), so he was 23 when these images were taken, yet he said this week he was an escort only to get through college. Speaking to Noah Michelson of Huffington Post, he addressed the rumors of his past as a sex worker by saying:

I mean, the past is the past, y'know, I was young and it helped through college, um, but what I want people to focus on is who I am today—the entrepreneur, um, as an activist, um, I started a non-profit, and, y'know, um, focusing on the show. That's really what I want people to focus on.

This photo shoot is the one from which he used an image to advertise himself as a sex worker. He graduated college in 2004, so was clearly still escorting two years (or more) later.

That's not the major issue for me—because I'm all for sex work and all for sexy photo shoots and all for bar rags (this shoot was for Buzz Magazine)—but the show's thrust and Sepúlveda's reaction to the gossip is.

Following the gay bachelor's brusque, clearly embarrassed brush-off of the escorting issue, Michelson bizarrely tried to spin it as an example of how the very aggressively heteronormative show isn't that heteronormative. Had Sepúlveda been upfront about this aspect of his life (he has also, via lawyers, sent cease-and-desist letters to blogs that posted X-rated selfies), it could've been an interesting twist on the show. Instead, it appears very likely that he was attempting to hide his sex work in order to appear on a show that undoubtedly would have rejected him over it. The show is set up identically to The Bachelor—you simply do not get more heteronormative than that.

EVERY GAY MAN UNDERSTANDS WHAT IT'S LIKE TO BE AN UNDERDOG: Okay. Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-08-25 at 2.43.48 PMOh, brother. Brothers. (Image via Logo)

I root for Logo, unlike many gay men who tell me point-blank they won't watch it. I don't want to do away with a gay network, I want it to be great.

Other than RuPaul's Drag Race, there is very little reason to watch it, actually, since so little original progamming is featured—that shit is expensive—and the movies it airs are cut so as not to offend pre-schoolers.

Now comes Logo's entry into the world of dating series: Finding Prince Charming. (They want you to forget Bravo's Boy Meets Boy ever happened back in 2003.) And I'm still unconvinced Logo is giving you a good reason to watch beyond RDR.

The show was announced months back, but the exclusive introduction of all the bachelors was handed to TMZ, which posted and then unposted and then reposted over at its TooFab, I guess implying it was kind of a lightweight story.

Logo refers to its star, mannequin-handsome Robert Sepulveda Jr., as “the nation's most eligible gay heartthrob,” in spite of the fact that nobody's ever heard of him until now. Well, except for all the commenters across gay blogs, who have alleged he was a rentboy (and bad speller) named Vincent Romen. That could, in theory, be character assassination (presuming you're against hustlers; I ain't), but there are many, many nude selfies of Sepulveda Jr. showing off Sepulveda Jr. Jr. that do kinda look more like business cards than simple narcissism-o-grams. I guess we'll leave it up to Snopes. 

If it seems retro to sniff at a possible hooker in the midst of a dating show, what about Logo's own very old-fashioned pitch (starting with that creaky title):

One by one, the suitors are eliminated until the heartthrob chooses one ideal man to sweep him off of his feet and commit to an exclusive relationship.

“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. “Finding Prince Charming will take viewers on a whirlwind journey through modern love and relationships in a way that only Logo can do.”

Why is the explicit goal to find a guy to commit to exclusively? How many gay relationships are exclusive? I'm not knocking it, having tried it, but it's not exactly a fresh, young approach; the entire show seems very detached from gay reality.

I recently did a lot of research into Playgirl (remember it?!) and I came to the conclusion that the reason that brand never truly took off is instead of giving women what they wanted in a sexy magazine, it simply knocked off what the male version was. The same thing seems to be happening with Logo and its Finding Prince Charming—they've taken a straight reality dating series and peopled it with gay men. Doesn't make it a good fit for the audience.

It could end up being a highly watchable trainwreck, but I'm guessing gay men will still be more interested in the original, straight versions until a truly gay answer comes along.

The Gay BACHELOR: Logo Announces FINDING PRINCE CHARMING Comments (0)

Logo today announced it will air Finding Prince Charming, the first all-gay male dating series, which it expects to air in the fall. It's already filming, so that means you failed the audition.

From a press release:

Hosted by Lance Bass, “Finding Prince Charming” will include 13 charming and gorgeous suitors, all housed together, who compete to win the heart of one of the Lance AMAnation’s most eligible gay heartthrob. The sexy suitors grapple to stand out from the crowd all hoping for a moment of intimate connection, romance and, perhaps, true love. One by one, the suitors are eliminated until the heartthrob chooses one ideal man to sweep him off of his feet and commit to an exclusive relationship.

“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.

“’Finding Prince Charming’ will take viewers on a whirlwind journey through modern love and relationships in a way that only Logo can do.”  

"Finding Prince Charming” is produced by Brian Graden Media. Executive Producers for Brian Graden Media are Brian Graden and Dave Mace with Fred Birckhead and Nick Murray also serving as executive producers. Chris McCarthy, Pamela Post and Stevenson Greene are Executive Producers for Logo and Jen Passovoy serves as producer. 

I'm sure I'll watch this, but one bone to pick—I don't think gay men are looking for Prince Charming; that reads as more traditionally female. But I'll give it a try.
