new Queer Eye season starts tonight; pseudo-spinoff Gal Pals announced.
Queer Eye for the Straight Guy returns tonight with a new episode airing on Bravo at 10 p.m. ET. The Fab Five, $5,000 richer per episode, will make over a postal worker who once was a male model and now has “a terrific family, a lovely home and interesting hobbies.” However, “he’s accumulated a long mane of hair and a shaggy beard that make him look more like a cave dweller than a suburban dad.” … Meanwhile, Queer Eye for the Straight Girl will indeed be a reality, but it’s not going to be called that. And despite the fact that it will feature five gay men making over straight women, the show “is not deemed to be a spinoff,” Television Week reports. The show will be called Gal Pals, and half-hour episodes will air in syndication starting next fall.
