Things are heating up on Finding Prince Charming!

In an exclusive sneak peek at the season premiere of the upcoming all-gay dating competition series, the show’s leading man Robert Sepélveda Jr. hits the pool with his guys for the very first time – and let’s just say their reactions speak for themselves.

“He’s going to take his shirt off!” one man whispers urgently to the rest of the group milling around the deck, anxiously awaiting the big reveal as Sepélveda Jr. settles down by the edge of the pool.

Slowly, Sepélveda Jr. takes off his tank top – and the guys lose it.

“Oh my God – I’m dying,” says one contestant.

“Dead. Full-blown dead,” another adds.

“Everyone here is thirstier than Tara Reid in rehab, honey,” chimes in another.

The show, which is set to premiere Thursday and will be hosted by Lance Bass, will follow Sepélveda Jr.’s journey to find love amongst 13 potential suitors.

It will also tackle some tougher topics – such as the fact that one contestant is HIV-positive.

“It will be very funny and romantic but also very real and talk about things that a lot of people are afraid to talk about,” Sepélveda told PEOPLE in this week’s issue, opening up about his own past as an escort. “I hope my own story helps others see that you can move forward from your past, that anything is possible, and everyone is worthy of love.”

Finding Prince Charming premieres Thursday at 9 p.m. ET on Logo.
