Lance Bass Says He Wants to Host an LGBTQ Version of 'The Bachelor'

“If you want the most dramatic season ever, do an LGBT version,” Lance said.

“I think maybe it’s the time for The Bachelor to do a gay Bachelor. I think that would be so much fun,” he continued. “And I definitely know a host if you need it.”

“I have not talked to anyone about that, but I would be so down,” he added.

Lance formerly hosted the short-lived series Finding Prince Charming back in 2016. The show was cancelled after one season and Lance told Variety, “I don’t know why they didn’t do a second season of that.”

He also shared that Bachelor in Paradise is the perfect show for exploring more LGBTQ storylines.

Contestant Demi Burnett came out as sexually fluid in 2019 and proposed to her girlfriend Kristian Haggerty. The pair split in late 2019 and Demi returned to Paradise this season.

Demi obviously had the first LGBT storyline on Bachelor in Paradise, so that seems like a place that is a great venue for all love stories,” Lance said. “I love the fact that they’re really branching out.”

“They’re doing the seniors next, which I think is such a great idea. I like that they’re trying different things and I think the next step, the obvious step, would to be an LGBT version. I would love to see a show where you had lesbian, gay, trans, bi. To me, bisexual is just such an interesting thing to watch because everyone is an option.”
