second Queer Eye season debuts tonight.

second Queer Eye season debuts tonight.
After 25 episodes debuted over the span of a year, and as recently as April, Bravo’s Queer Eye for the Straight Guy has hardly been off the air. Still, the network debuts the second season of the show tonight as the Fab Five tackle fraternal twins tonight at 10 p.m. ET. In the Washington Post, Hank Stuever reviews the episode and “wonder[s] why the Queers keep looking worse while the Straights have improved.” He says it’s time for the show to leave New York (it’s going to Texas), because it “has become lazily dependent on the limitless spas, salons, gourmet groceries and fashion stores of Manhattan, and it has found too many already enlightened hetero males in the Tri-State area to mess around with.”
+ also: Carson says “There’s nothing wrong with bargain clothes”; says after kiss from Jake Gyllenhaal, “I have lived.”
