    “Queer Eye” Gets Makeover of Its Own

    “Queer Eye” Gets Makeover of Its Own

    by SnowflakeGirl

    FansofRealityTV.com – Looks like the Emmy-winning, Bravo hit "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" has apparently had a little makeover of its very own. Sporting a trimmed-down title and what Bravo is calling "a new emphasis on more emotionally driven storytelling," the cultural phenomenon will return as simply "Queer Eye" when the third season premieres Tuesday, June 7 (10 PM ET/PT).

    "The new abbreviated title for the series is a nod to the show's status in the world of pop culture," explains Bravo president, Lauren Zalaznick, "'Queer Eye' has become part of our everyday vernacular." Not to mention fitting a lot more nicely on a schedule grid.

    Carson Kressley, Jai Rodriguez, Kyan Douglas, Thom Filicia and Ted Allen will all be back, and as a special start to the new season, will work their magic on members of the world famous Boston Red Sox (Kevin Millar, Johnny Damon, Jason Varitek, Tim Wakefield and Doug Mirabelli) in order to "reverse their curse of bad style." The Fab 5 redefine the concept of "spring training" when they transform the stadium press room into a spa and equip each player with a whole new look and an assortment of services (including massages, pedicures, hair color, and even a little hot wax manscaping). Our Queer Eye guys will also team up with the players' wives (Jeanna Millar, Michelle Damon, Karen Varitek, Stacy Wakefield and Kristin Mirabelli) to help the local community raise funds for little leaguers hoping to re-build hurricane-ravaged baseball fields in their home state of Florida. What the little leaguers don’t know is that they’ll also get the opportunity of their lives: a chance to play a couple of innings with the Red Sox and the Fab 5! (What, no pedicures for the kiddies?)

    For the rest of the season, the Fab 5 will continue on their quest to help style-challenged straight men, with episodes that Bravo promises will move the audience laughter and tears. "We've put the spotlight on some intriguing subjects this season, ordinary people who've done extraordinary deeds as well as people who have an amazing outlook on life, but a challengingly poor sense of style," such as: Lee, a stay-at-home father to eight foster children; Hector, an injured veteran home from Iraq, adjusting to life in a wheelchair; Paulo, papa to 2-year-old quintuplets; and Gary, a cystic fibrosis survivor who, despite medical odds, is about to celebrate his 40th birthday with the help of friend, Boomer Esiason.

    Will the "Queer Eye" makeover help boost the series’ flagging ratings? Tune in next Tuesday to see if you like the new look.

    I loved this show when it first came out because of the guys' sense of humor with a light touch of sappiness at the end. I enjoyed it more when the straight guys' events didn't work out quite as planned. Then it became really predictable and boring. Now it sounds like they're cranking up the sap factor. Blech.

    It's a shame, too. I really enjoyed this show when it first came out, but it's run its course.

    "All things" don't always get better. In fact, after two or three episodes, most people realize "all things" are a gimmick and a waste of bandwidth on television.

    Thanks for the heads-up, Snowflakegirl.

    another thing is that it was hard to watch when they bounced it around during the second season and then of course, up against "the shield" and i can only record one while at work.

    So now it's turning into a cross between Queer Eye and Extreme Makeover:Home Edition where the subject of the make-over has to have some hard luck/inspiring story? I'll second that "Blech," sleepysluggo.

    These shows never have a very long shelf-life. When will the networks get that?

    OK, so I'm the only person left on the planet that still likes this show. I especially love their Hip Tips.

    Don't feel too bad, prhoshay. I was taken apart the last time I mentioned that I (used to) like 7th Heaven and The West Wing.

    Like what you want to like, do what you want to do, even if no one else agrees with you.
