'The Gay Bachelor' Robert Sepulveda Jr. Opens Up About His Past

"The past was the past. I was young and it helped through college."

Robert Sepulveda Jr., aka the dapper bachelor and leading man on Logo’s new reality dating show, “Finding Prince Charming,” responded to rumors with The Huffington Post on Tuesday about his past as an escort

“The past is the past. I was young and it helped through college,” Sepulveda told 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.”

Lance Bass, the show’s host, chimed in saying “We all have our past. I was in a boy band. I’ll admit it.”

Sepulveda added that being on “Finding Prince Charming” has helped him deal with negative feelings of some of his past experiences. 

“The show allowed me as well to close a lot of chapters in my life that I felt a lot of guilt around, a lot of shame and a lot of things I thought I couldn’t share and express,” he said.

“Finding Prince Charming” premieres on Logo on Thursday, September 8 at 9pm ET. Head here for more info.
