I loved watching this show. ‘The L Word,’ not so much. Go figure. Anyway, Netflix is rebooting the show with a new Fab Five.
“Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” is back!
The reality TV series, which ran from 2003 from 2007, returns in a hotly anticipated “reimagining” early next year. Netflix released the first photo of the new Fab Five last week ahead of the show’s February 2018 premiere.
The men leading the makeovers are: Antoni Porowski (food & wine), Bobby Berk (interior design), Karamo Brown (culture), Jonathan Van Ness (grooming) and Tan France (fashion).
I used to like this show. Seeing what the guys could do for the straight guys.
When you think about the year 2003, what comes to mind? Queer Eye for the Straight Guy? Us too! The show premiered on Bravo in July and we were totally hooked. The “Fab Five” would drive to their straight guy assignment, giving the viewers a little bit of background so we’d know what to expect when we met the guy who’s going to benefit from the life skills offered by Ted Allen, Carson Kressley, Kyan Douglas, Thom Filicia and Jai Rodriguez. The fabulous makeover mavens would then descend upon their subject’s home, where they’d go through his stuff, talk to his friends and family, and criticize basically everything about the man’s life. It was addictive and wonderful.
The show ran five seasons and won an Emmy in 2004. It was cancelled in 2007, to our great disappointment, but we still love watching reruns and chatting about the show. So, here is the untold truth of QEFTSG – the stuff you may not have known, but can’t wait to find out.
