They call themselves the Fab Five. They are: An interior designer, a fashion stylist, a chef, a beauty guru and someone we like to call the “concierge of cool” - who is responsible for all things hip, including music and pop culture. All five are talented, they’re gay and they’re determined to clue in the cluttered, clumsy straight men of the world. With help from family and friends, the Fab Five treat each new guy as a head-to-toe project. Soon, the straight man is educated on everything from hair products to Prada and Feng Shui to foreign films. At the end of every fashion-packed, fun-filled lifestyle makeover, a freshly scrubbed, newly enlightened guy emerges - complete with that “new man” smell!
Queer Eye 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 Filicia, 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. The show was awarded the 2004 Emmy Award for Outstanding Reality Program.
Willy is an aging ex-heavy metal rocker and the father of four, living in Queens with his girlfriend and their toddler son. They are preparing for Willy's teenage son Nathan to move in with them.
The Good: Willy works at the Queens Theater at Flushing Meadows Park and is in a 40's style band. Nathan is a keen drummer and has performed with his father. Their love of music had always been a bond between them, and they hope it will bring them closer together once Nathan moves in.
The Bad: Willy lives in a small three-bedroom apartment, and Nathan's room is empty and unwelcoming, which will not make leaving his home and his mother any easier.
The Fab Five step in to create a warm home environment that all four of them can live comfortably in, and to help Willy build the happy family of his dreams.
