Fab Five will make over gay guy.
On the new season of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, which begins next week, the Fab Five will make over one of their own: a gay man who “apparently never got the memo,” Carson tells the New York Daily News. The guy, identified as Wayne H., has “dorm room decor” and a Madonna t-shirt circa 1985. Episode 100–the very rough pilot–reairs tomorrow night, featuring the show’s first makeover. If you tune in, you’ll see Sam, Charlie and James alongside Carson and Ted; those three weren’t fab enough to make it past the pilot episode.
+ also: NewYorkish has photos of Queer Eye’s plain and nasty craft services table. + and: a Queer Eye editor talks about the show’s production process.
