Queer Eye for the Straight Guy: It’s Faboo!

Queer Eye for the Straight Guy is fab-u-lous. We watched out first episode this morning (while I languished on the couch with a headache), and it was great. Haven’t seen it? Ok, these five gay guys, each with a diffferent specialty (there’s the host/personal grooming guy, fashion consultant, food guy, and decorators) take on a poor boorish breeder (best gay insult ever) and turn them into fashion-conscious renaissance men by showing them that there are finer things in life than fast food and Wal-Mart deck chairs.

The guy on this episode was so into it. He was trying to do something nice for his wife, who was tired of his old t-shirts, poor personal grooming and their mess of a house. She went away, and the fairy-god-queers (they call themselves the Fab Five, and they are faboo) went to work, teaching poor Adam all about spa treatments, cooking, furniture and keeping it together. While there were moments of really funny cattiness, the five guys were there to help (unlike the mean-spirited American version of What Not To Wear), and were overjoyed at the progress Adam made.

It was funny, cute and educational… It’s definitely going on the Season Pass list! Oh, and yeah, I should probably apply to be a victim on the show. I could use the help.

  1. Hey Kev! Man, where do we sign you up? It would be a lot of fun to see you on this show. I have just seen one episode where they make over the artist, and that one was a lot of fun.

  2. Thank you so much for bringing the queer eye fabulous guys back into my life. They are light hearted, fun, sensative and educational. They make me feel good about mysself. I am a women married for 42 years.
    They may be gay but they are so much more than that. They are talented wonderful human beings. You keep calling them gay. That makes the straight people look less than standard. If only we could all possess that of the queer guys.
    Don’t make this their last show. Have them do a traveling show around the world for us who want to learn to get the most out of our vacations. You just can’t take them off the air again. I subscribed to cable only to get them and than you took them off the air. SHAME ON YOU.but thank you for bringing them back. Please I will help you find something for them to do anything they do will turn to gold. A loving fan. Nancy Schiltz La Mirada California (bulbar@aol.com)
