    Allen or others should ask questions and have their own opinions. It also made for a funny few moments!

    I don't know Carson's birthday. Maybe you can try the Bravo site and contact them (if you haven't already) and good luck.

    I just saw Carson recently and thought you all might be interested in hearing about his appearance

    I saw him at a film festival in Bethlehem, PA.

    He looked great...the guy is so cute-- His hair is
    quite long at the moment and was pretty straight. He has a very dark tan. He was wearing a silk (okay, it could have possibly
    been leather),dark brown shirt. He had on
    funky jeans...indigo with the faded effects and a zipper going all
    the way up the side of each leg. And dark brown shoes...

    The interview:

    They had some guy come out and interview him--for the life of me I
    can't remember who...I was too busy taking Carson in!
    They started talking about Queer Eye right away. Carson mentioned
    that they shoot an epi a week and that they have to edit 80 hours
    worth of shooting into about 49 minutes of show. On an average day
    during week, he's at work by 8:00 and won't be done sometimes until
    midnight. They shoot 3-4 days out of the week and other days he'll be
    in meetings all day. :new There are NO writers for Queer Eye, rather the
    FF are the producers. They're given free reign. They sit down with
    one another to collaborate on where they'll take the straight guy,
    what they'll do with him, etc. Obviously, this also means that their
    lines aren't scripted like many people think they are! They are
    shooting 40 epis this upcoming season, and the next new episode will
    be shown Nov. 18th. They have a holiday epi in the works where they
    go back and visit some of the guys they've already "made better".
    Carson visited John Bargeman (the guy who proposed...) and commented
    that John's done all right with his transformation except that "he
    still has some dirty underwear". EWW!! The network is also planning
    on bringing the show on the road and doing make betters in other
    cities including "Chicago, Dallas, and L.A."

    Carson is also writing his own book on fashion, separate from the Fab
    5 book deal. It'll be published next "September" (though he hesitated
    a bit on this)

    He told a story about how the word "tjuz" came to be. When he used to
    do photo shoots while working with Ralph Lauren, Jerry(sp?) Lauren
    would tell him to "tjuz" the sleeves on the models, etc.

    They showed a bunch of pics of him growing up that his mom had
    brought to the event. They were all so cute. He had a great high school graduation picture--how many times
    can I say what a cute guy he is?

    He traveled a lot with previous job, Ralph Lauren, and likened it to being in the military and
    seeing the world, "without having to kill people".


    How he got on Queer Eye:
    A co-worker at RL heard about the Queer Eye show on the radio in a
    cab and told Carson about it. He called Bravo and no one there knew
    what he was talking about. Next he called New Line Productions in
    Boston and they told him he needed a casting agent. He sounded all a
    bit overwhelmed by this and sorta did the whole "oh my god.." thing
    on stage. He wound up sending a pic and a "sassy" letter into New
    Line and they gave him a call to come audition. During his initial
    audition, he cracked a joke about being there to audition for a pizza
    commerical and no one got it. That freaked him out a little and he
    had to wonder if he even wanted to go ahead with this. After the
    initial audition, New Line kept calling him to come back for further
    auditions/interviews--as often as once a week and he had to start
    making excuses about missing so much work at
    Ralph Lauren. He was worried about not getting one of the spots and
    losing his real job as well. New Line finally shot a pilot back in
    June(??) of last year with Ted, Carson and three other guys who they
    wound up recasting.

    Final observations/comments:

    I could have sat there and listened to him talk all night. He's
    really well-spoken and interesting. His family was there to see him and he thanked them/mentioned them
    repeatedly throughout-- I thought that was really cool. Afterwards,
    he sent his mom home with a pretty bouquet of flowers that had been
    decorating the stage..awwww.

    Well, those are some of the snippets from the show.

    Preventinjury, thanks for sharing. In the world of "predetermined reality" TV, it's so good to know that the show is basically left up to the FF and that it is not scripted. They have such a flow that I would have been impressed if it was planned. I agree that it was so nice that he thanked his parents and gave his mom the flowers. That was a good post.

    The Definitive Stereotype

    I love Carson. He is attractive. He has a rapier wit and he's smart. I also feel that without him, the show would need a new title. To the straight population, he also epitomizes the gay man stereotype of outlandish effeminate acting and speaking with that falsetto tone. The other cast members do not fit that stereotype. Would the show be as popular without him? What do you think?

    Yes, I think that it would work very well with or without Carson. I do like Carson though. To me, the others have witty personalities that are coming out more.
