* AllGaysArePromiscuous: Averted by many of the suitors, who claim to be monogamous and relationship-oriented. Some might argue, however, that the trope was played straight (pun not intended) with Prince Charming himself.

Added DiffLines:

* SpitefulSpit: Sam during a particularly nasty argument with Dillon. Afterward, [[spoiler:Sam quits the show]].

Added DiffLines:

'''''Finding Prince Charming''''' is a [[RealityShow reality dating show]] on Creator/{{LOGO}}.

Hosted by [[Music/{{NSYNC}} Lance Bass]], it could be easily summed up as "Gay [[Series/TheBachelor Bachelor]]'', featuring {{cast full of gay}} men vying for the affections of their titular PrinceCharming through a series of challenges and one-on-one time with him.

Season one's Prince Charming is [[LatinLover Robert Sepulveda Jr.]], an interior designer from UsefulNotes/{{Atlanta}}, Georgia.

''Finding Prince Charming'' is notable for being the first gay reality dating show on American television, Bravo's ''Boy Meets Boy'' [[note]]which saw straight men competing alongside gay men for money rather than love[[/note]] a decade earlier notwithstanding.

!! ''Finding Prince Charming'' provides examples of the following tropes:
* AllGaysArePromiscuous: Averted by many of the suitors, who claim to be monogamous and relationship-oriented.
* BalancedHarem: A rare all-male version of this trope.
* BlackDudeDiesFirst: [[spoiler:Brodney is technically the third suitor eliminated, but he's still gone by the end of the first episode regardless]].
* BeachEpisode: The second episode of season two sees everybody spending time with Robert at the beach.
* CastFullOfGay: Naturally, given the premise. Lance Bass makes a point of spelling it out in the premiere episode, knowing some viewers may remember the aforementioned ''Boy Meets Boy'', which was only ''kind'' of a gay dating show.
* ConfessionCam: Like most other competitive reality shows.
* HaremSeeker: Prince Charming. Robert is season one's.
* HopelessSuitor: Robert's reason for joining the show. Many of the contestants are also here for that same reason.
* ImNotHereToMakeFriends: Invoked by X in the season one premiere, telling Robert this verbatim while trying to steal some time alone with him.
* LoverTugOfWar: As per the norm with these reality dating shows. It's twelve guys competing for the attention of one man.
* MonochromeCasting: It's too early to tell whether or not this show will fall into the racist pitfalls of ''Series/TheBachelor'' and its spin-offs, but for what it's worth, Robert himself is of [[UsefulNotes/PuertoRico Puerto Rican]] descent. That said, [[spoiler: the first elimination saw one of the cast's few black men being given the boot]].
* MrFanservice: While just about every guy on this show is attractive in their own way, they ''all'' regard Robert in this way.
* MyNaymeIs: Jasen's uncommon spelling of the name "Jason."
* PoolScene: Did you ''really'' think a show with this many attractive gay men would make it past the first episode without [[WalkingShirtlessScene gratuitous swimsuit shots]] of its participants?
* RealityShowGenreBlindness: Many of the suitors are ''totally'' off-base about Robert's feelings toward them at any given moment.
* RealityTVShowMansion: One filled with attractive gay men, in this case.
* TokenMinority: Brodney, Danique, and Dillon are the only non-white suitors in the first season. Brandon is Latino, but fairly light-skinned and could be mistaken for white.
* WeHardlyKnewYe: [[spoiler:Charlie, Nick, and Brodney are the first three suitors eliminated in episode one]].
