THE FAB 5 TACKLE THEIR BIGGEST CHALLENGE YET WITH WRESTLING FRATERNAL TWIN BROTHERS BRANDON AND DAVID BRAVO

BRAVO SALUTES GAY PRIDE MONTH WITH SPECIAL "QUEER EYE FOR THE GAY GUY" EPISODE ON JUNE 29TH

NEW YORK -- May 18, 2004 -- "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy," the breakout television hit of 2003, launches its second season Tuesday, June 1st kicking off a summer of all new episodes featuring a fresh crew of straight guys and one gay guy who, apparently, never got the memo. "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" airs Tuesdays at 10:00PM ET / 9:00PM Central only on Bravo and stars Ted Allen, Kyan Douglas, Thom Filicia, Carson Kressley and Jai Rodriguez.

The summer of straight/gay guy love begins with the appropriately named Bravo twins. No joke! Brandon and David Bravo are fraternal twin frat boys who went from womb-mates to roommates, currently sharing a two-bedroom home in Queens, NY. Their brotherly bond extends to a lifelong obsession for Greco-Roman wrestling. The Fab 5 are on a mission to rescue Brandon and David by helping them discover and embrace their individual styles. Have they met their match with the wonder twins? Don't count on it. The well-moisturized face-off premieres Tuesday, June 1st at 10:00PM ET/9:00PM Central.

With a wink to Gay Pride Month and a nod to equal rights, Bravo will air a special "Queer Eye for the Gay Guy" episode in which the Fab 5 live up to the pledge to "leave no child behind" by helping fellow gay man Wayne H. be all that he can be. Wayne's world is an alternative universe where a gay man who grew up in New York City does not have the first clue about fashion, grooming, design, culture or food. He came out of the closet but can he come out of his shell? The Fab 5 will try to convince Wayne that it's time to get rid of his circa 1985 Madonna T-shirt and dorm room d?cor, and show the world the classy guy living behind the Peter Parker glasses. This special episode premieres Tuesday, June 29th at 10:00PM ET/9:00PM Central.

Also in June:

David G. is a physical therapist in need of a style boost to get him on par with his talented handbag designer wife. The Fab 5's challenge: whip David into shape in time for a star-studded fundraiser to be hosted by his wife. (Premieres Tuesday, June 8th)

Michael C., on the verge of turning 40, has adopted interesting practices: he's become a Buddhist, taken up a diet of pureed fruit and wears an ancient wardrobe he's had for years. The Fab 5's challenge: convince this minimalist to maximize his wardrobe, d?cor and diet, and take his wife and friends out for a dinner that does not include peach-apple soup. (Premieres Tuesday June 15th)

Phil R. is a Brooklyn gambler whose 2nd ex-wife and co-workers believe that he has finally lost his shirt to the house.

(Premieres Tuesday, June 22nd)

"Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" is a one-hour guide to "building a better straight man," ? a "make better" series designed for guys who want to get the girl, the job or just the look. With the expertise and support of "The Fab 5" ? Ted Allen, Kyan Douglas, Thom Felicia, Carson Kressley and Jai Rodriguez ? the makeover unfolds with a playful deconstruction of the subject's current lifestyle and continues on as a savagely funny showcase for the hottest styles and trends in fashion, home design, grooming, food and wine, and culture.

"Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" is produced by Scout Productions. The executive producers are David Collins and Michael Williams for Scout, and Frances Berwick, Amy Introcaso-Davis and Christian Barcellos for Bravo. The co-executive producer is David Metzler. The series was created by David Collins, a gay man, and developed by David Metzler, a straight man ? a union of sensibilities that gives the show its depth, humor and edge.
