In 2003, a new show premiered on Bravo: Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. The reality show starred five gay men (called the Fab Five) who were all ‘experts’ in five different fields: fashion, culture, grooming, design, and food/wine. This Bravo show had five seasons and 100 episodes focused on helping make over different straight men. It ended in 2007 but ten years later, Netflix decided to bring it back.
With an all new Fab Five, the first season of Netflix’s Queer Eye premiered in February 2018 to positive reviews. The show was a bit different this time around. There were new members of the Fab Five, the show was centered in Atlanta, Georgia, and it wasn’t just straight guys getting make overs. By the time that season two came out in June of 2018, three of the sixteen episodes were not about straight men.
