This could stand to become a very powerful, empowering reality TV moment.
According to reports, one of the 13 men trying to win the love of TV’s first gay bachelor as part of the new Logo show Finding Prince Charming is HIV positive.
TMZ is reporting that producers were aware of the unknown cast member’s status the entire time, though the cast was not told of what was happening.
Robert Sepulveda, Jr. — the bachelor on the show — also did not know immediately, although he was told relatively early on in the taping.
Furthermore, the cast member’s HIV status reveal is set to be a major point in the show, which producers believe will be a meaningful and enlightening moment for both straight and gay viewers.
The show has been taped and it’s all set to go, but no word yet on whether Robert picked the HIV positive cast member as the one. For what it’s worth, though, apparently emotions ran high and Robert was very supportive of the cast member.
What do U think about this, Perezcious readers? Are we in for some ground-breaking TV?
