It’s every girl’s dream to become a princess and now, 12 American ladies are getting the chance! Or so they think. Matt Hicks, 23, looks just like Prince Harry and he’s fooling single hopefuls into thinking just that on I Wanna Marry Harry. Matt stopped by HollywoodLife.com to tell us what he thinks about American girls and stateside celebrity drama. We promise, you’ll fancy this bloke!
‘I Wanna Marry Harry’: Matthew Hicks Is Prince Harry
FOX is jumping across the pond to mingle with Prince Harry — well, kind of. I Wanna Marry Harry is a brand new dating show coming to America, but brings some British humor to the states.
Matt Hicks looks just like Prince Harry (he’s blonde, but he had his hair dyed red to match the royal’s locks), and he’s tricking a group of young, gorgeous girls into thinking that they could marry into the crown! The show pulls out all the stops — security, a castle, tea parties and even a masquerade ball on the premiere episode. And you’ll never believe it ’til you see it, but the girls completely believe that Matt is the prince!
The goal of the series is for Matt (aka Harry) to find love. He really does want to find the woman of his dreams, but will it work or will the scheme turn into a royal disaster? The girls could turn out to be gold diggers or could be furious with Matt for lying to them!
Matt Hicks (AKA Prince Harry) Talks About American Celebrities
Matt came to HollywoodLife.com to talk about American gossip — we had to train him since he’s being thrown into a house (okay, castle) of gabbing girls!
First off, Matt told us that he thinks all girls are crazy (not just Americans), but he’s quite fond of his “sister-in-law” Kate Middleton!
We asked Matt about the recent scandal with Jay Z, Beyonce and Solange Knowles and he basically admitted that Americans need to mind their royal business! But when we asked him about the fight, he said that he would never fight back if Kate were to attack him! (Well done, Jay Z.) The British lookalike also told us all about his American celebrity crushes. WATCH above to find out!
Matt had such a great sense of humor that we can’t wait to see him trick these girls into the ultimate test for love.
I Wanna Marry Harry premieres on Tuesday, May 20 (9/8c) on FOX.
