In Search Of (Television Thoughts, Finding Prince Charming Episodes Four and Five, Thursdays on Logo)

316021-1So yes, I have been watching ‘Finding Prince Charming’  and I would be lying if I said I haven’t been enjoying it – because it is enjoyable in a fun trashy way. Of course, I don’t take it too seriously, and I don’t think anyone is kidding anyone else if one said that these guys are really looking for true love.

I still Robert Sepulveda is kind of boring. He seems to be very guarded, but at the same time wanting – expecting – his suitors to be vulnerable to him – two way street, man. And of course, there is that big ‘surprise’ on Episode Four when Paul was eliminated – I bet no one saw that coming. And who knew Paul was such a Princess – asking his trainer to bring him chilled towels when he works out so he doesn’t sweat, not wanting to dirty his white shorts. Sure, that would be a deal-breaker for most, including the Prince Charming, apparently. But I don’t think he is as bad as Dillon, who is playing this game so aggressively – for me, that would be more of a deal breaker, and surely Prince Charming is keeping him because he brings the drama. Robby gets sent home in Episode Six, and we all knew he was just there for ‘entertainment.’  Yes, he is campy and funny, but at times he does feel like a gay minstrel show. I am sort of rooting for Chad, and I don’t know why – he seem to be cray cray, as the others have described him, but maybe I like him because he remind me of the guys from new York, where he lives.

Then of course, I cannot not discuss the bug explosive episode wherein Eric reveals to teh house – and to the Prince – that he is HIV positive. In this day and age it is not as big a deal as it used to be, but it is still a big deal, at least for me anyway. I know I am not the only one who shed some tears when everyone in the house banded together to support him. Yes these guys act catty and petty, but I know for sure gay people have a lot of compassion in their hearts. It was nice to see that reflected in the show.

So what comes next? More drama, of course, and I bet more serious now that Robby is gone. With three episodes left, I am more than curious to find out who takes the Prince home.
