Playing EXCLUSIVE: Lance Bass Says 'Finding Prince Charming' Is a 'Whole Different Ballgame' From 'The Bachelor'

Lance Bass is hosting the first gay reality dating show on U.S. television, where 13 men will be putting their hearts on the line for Logo channel's answer to The Bachelor, and the former 'NSYNC singer exclusively welcomed ET to the set.

Finding Prince Charming has Bass taking on the Chris Harrison role of giving advice and being a shoulder to cry on for the suitors competing for the affection of their dream guy, Robert Sepulveda Jr., an interior designer from Atlanta. While there are plenty of loving moments, the show is also chock full of drama.

"This is a show that I would die to watch, so the fact that I get to host this is a dream come true," Bass told ET.

Through the first season, contestants Brandon, Brodney, Chad, Charlie, Danique, Dillon, Eric, Jasen, Justin, Nick, Paul, Robby and Sam try to stay in the house, knowing that only one of them will get their man.

"You can't force people to be friends, and that's going to come out," Bass explained, "especially once feelings start happening for our Prince Charming. The claws are going to come out."

While it's nothing special to see housemates go at each other's throats on reality dating shows, the same-sex element of Finding Prince Charming throws another wrench into things.

"It's a whole different ball game," Bass said. "There's a chance that these suitors might fall in love with each other, so there's a whole extra element in this layer of uncertainty that could happen in this house."

And with more uncertainty comes more drama when Finding Prince Charming premieres Thursday, Sept. 8 at 9/8c on Logo.
