As reports about Robert Sepúlveda Jr. escort past have been uncovered, a new report says LOGO was not aware the “Finding Prince Charming” bachelor had been a sex worker.
“The network didn’t find out well into production,” a source at LOGO told The Wrap. The source continued that during casting the network followed “standard protocol” when considering Sepúlveda and that “nothing came up during the background check.”
“‘Finding Prince Charming’ is a reality series about 13 people looking for Mr. Right. As in real life, the show will cover a range of topics people face when dating, from first time love to coming to terms with one’s past, fear of commitment and even HIV. We look forward to taking viewers on a journey of the human spirit in search of love,” a LOGO spokesperson told The Wrap in a statement.
Sepúlveda confirmed to the Huffington Post that he had been a male escort, but now wants to move forward.
“The past is the past. I was young and it helped through college,” Sepúlveda said in conversation with host Noah Michelson. “But what I want people to focus on is who I am today as an entrepreneur, as an activist. I started a non-profit and, you know, focusing on the show. That’s really what I want people to focus on.”
