    I think it should be the same guys... we can't have a completely different Fab Five running around! Just imagine... no Carson, no Thom, no Ted, no Jai, no Kyan... That'd just be weird. While I love the concept of making over straight girls as well (I know some of us could use it), it just wouldn't be the same .

    ohmygawd! That would have been fun seeing Queer Ladies doin make overs! If it did happen I would be envisioning Gina Gershon's character in Showgirls cause that would obviously boost ratigns thru the roof.
    No offense to "butch" women.

    Ok. This is funny, cause I really did have a discussion about Queer Gals for the Str8 Girls. Or something along the lines of that.

    Basically what I wanted was a makeover....but I'm a lesbian. I'm not butch, or obviously in need of a makeover....I just need some help in the clothes shopping department for work, and whatever else they saw fit to "redo" on me.

    I think it would be funny to have queer women making over straight gals. But...not sure how well that would go.

    As for gay men making over str8 women... hmm...I guess it might work...but it would have to include the Fab 5. Hands down, they are the ones who would bring the ratings..not a new group. The following/fans have already been formed for the Fab 5...it would be kinda silly to get new queers to do it.

    Maveno's back!

    I think any group of people who were willing and somewhat in need would be good for a make over.
    Of course, the Fab Five are my Favorite , but I would give some new group a chance. I would still like the whole nine yards: hair, skin, nails, waxing-OUCH, food, home, and culture! (They could throw in some tickets to a Broadway show or dance performance).

    Hey eldee!!!! I sure am! Actually...never left, Survivor started and I had to be around the Paradise Hotel threads cause of the ending! Sheesh...wish QEFTSG had new episodes. ::sigh::

    Anyway...yeah, any group of people who are willing to do the show would rock. But...there are sooo many makeover shows already going on...I think it needs to stand out somehow. I think "another group" of guys doing it would essentially make the show meld into all the other makeover shows cause it would be makeovers for women (most of these shows are for women). I think that's why (saddled with the fact that they're queer guys doing it) the show is a hit, cause it's "men only" makeovers.
    Hey..I could be wrong...it's just mho..
    But that's why I think it might prove to be better with the Fab 5...cause they would bring ratings right from the getgo.

    **Doesn't mean I wouldn't watch if they were new guys though...I would just feel like I was cheating on my boys...lol**


    .02 cents worth of typing again.

    Perhaps it would be a better idea to try it out with one episode of QEFTSG instead of making a whole new show. They already branched out in a way, with the John V. epsiode... I'm not so sure about the whole thing realy, but at least this way they could test it out, with the ORIGINAL Fab Five, and see if anyone likes it. IMHO, as much as I would love for them to make me over, I'd like to see them sticking to the straight guys. Like Maveno said, there's already plenty of shows out there for girls... give the guys a chance!
