In an interview with gay glossy Out, Lance Bass and Robert Sepulveda, Jr. of Finding Prince Charming talk about Logo's upcoming reality series dubbed "the gay Bachelor."

In Finding Prince Charming, Bass plays host to 13 gay men who are vying to win over Sepulveda, described by producers as one of the "nation's most eligible gay heartthrobs."

When asked "how it works with a bunch of gay men in a house together," Bass answered with a laugh, "They're all gonna have an orgy."

Sepulveda's answer suggested that possibly some of the suitors were more interested in their competitors than the prince.

"But if the guys found love within the house or whatever the case may have been – that they were more attracted to each other than they were to me – I would have given them my blessing. More power to them," he said.

The show reportedly includes an HIV-positive suitor.

"Do you think the show sheds good light on mixed status relationships?" the men were asked.

"I hope so," Bass answered. "I mean HIV is still such a stigma in our community. People are so uneducated about it, especially in the straight community. So I think this will give great visibility to the story, and I think it was handled beautifully."

"The show really tackled that issue in a beautiful way, and you get to see that," Sepulveda said, adding that an HIV-positive person is "worthy of love."

Bass added that a couple of the suitors on the show had gone through conversion therapy, which attempts to alter a person's sexual orientation.
