Here they come again!
It's been 10 years since Bravo's ground-breaking, Emmy-award-winning show Queer Eye for the Straight Guy showed American men that it's OK to dress sharp, eat right... and pluck away any unsightly unibrows.
And to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the show, Bravo will run a marathon of episodes on Monday from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET/PT. The run will highlight the best episodes from all five seasons, including the series premiere in 2003 and the finale in 2007.
Looking back now, Carson Kressley says he never expected the show to have such an impact on American culture and society. “We were there to do something pretty innocuous—give somebody a makeover," Kressley recently told Variety. "And the end result was opening people’s eyes to what being gay is all about, that it’s not scary or threatening. We’re just people like the rest of their families and friends.”
To celebrate the birth of the boundary-pushing show, we're taking a look back at the show's stars Ted Allen, Kyan Douglas, Thom Filicia, Carson Kressley, and Jai Rodriguez.
Which guy has had starring roles on Broadway? Who was an award-winning horse-show exhibitor? And which star largely retreated from the spotlight to study with... shamans?
I look forward to reliving the entire series once again. I hope some of the original Queer Eye posters will join in the fun. My first time moniker on the thread was "superannualted."
