Australia’s Queer Eye cast revealed.

Australia’s Queer Eye cast revealed.
The five gay men who will begin to transform Australia’s slovenly straight guys into dapper metrosexuals early next year have finally been revealed. The Australian Queer Eye for the Straight Guy cast consists of Liston Williams (life), Will Fennell (grooming), Ryan Andrijich (food), Ty Henschke (fashion), and Brendan Wong (interior design). To be superficial and judgmental and judge them by their photo, let’s just say that our Carson would win a beauty pageant against their fashion guy any day, and our Ted has clearly heard of the term “treadmill.” Oh, I kid the Australian Queer Eye cast. Applications are being accepted for straight guys who want to be made over by this new crew.
