Reviews Of Last Night’s ‘Finding Prince Charming’ Premiere Are In And They Are Predictably Brutal

The gay reality dating show Finding Prince Charming premiered on LogoTV last night and the reviews are about what we expected. Most people hated it. Some people really hated it. And other people really, really hated it.

Kevin Fallon at The Daily Beast called the show a “disaster” and a “snooze,” and wonders “how do you put a dozen gay men in a house together and make it boring?” (He also had some choice words for “Prince Charming” himself, 33-year-old Robert Sepúlveda Jr., who he called the show’s “fatal flaw” due to his “sheer lack of charisma.”)

Andy Swift at TVLand had a similar response, labeling last night’s episode “pretty uneventful” and criticizing almost all of the guys on the show for being devoid of any redeeming qualities: “Of the 15 men featured in Thursday’s premiere, including Robert and host Lance Bass, approximately four of them have personalities. They all do, however, have a portfolio of immaculately filtered gym/beach selfies.”

Then there was Kevin O’Keeffe at Mic, who may have had the harshest review yet. He called the show “dull, poorly produced and not deserving of anyone’s time or energy” adding it’s “not worth even a hate-watch.” He called Sepúlveda “a dud of a leading man.” And he questioned if the show is really as “historic” or ground-breaking as producers would have you believe, pointing to the incident where one of the bachelors criticizes another for being too feminine and flamboyant. “This is where we are in 2016? A fight about not being ‘masc’ enough?” O’Keeffe asks.

There were also the folks on Twitter, who were slightly more forgiving, but not much. The show was actually briefly trending last night… in large part thanks to Britney Spears, who may or may not have been paid to tweet about it to her nearly 50 million followers. But that didn’t stop the onslaught of catty tweets and memes.

Check out what some folks had to say…

And then there was this tweet from “Prince Charming” himself…
