After unprecedented success with Queer Eye For The Straight Guy, Bravo launched its first spin off of the Queer Eye family- Queer Eye For The Straight Girl. Bravo for Bravo! (I came up with that one all by myself!)
But can the Queer Eye For The Straight Girl series really match up? See how they compare in this showdown between the straight guys and the straight girls.
Starting with the obvious:
The Queer Eye Premise
The Fab 5 from Queer Eye For The Straight Guy - Five gay guys set out to make over culturally and fashionably lacking straight men one at a time.
The Gay Pals from Queer Eye For The Straight Girl - Three gay guys and one lesbian embark on a journey to enhance the image of straight women preparing for a special occasion.
The Queer Eye Cast
The Fab 5 from Queer Eye For The Straight Guy - Meet Grooming Guru Kyan Douglas, Food & Wine Connoisseur Ted Allen, Culture Vulture Jai Rodriguez, Fashion Savant Carson Kressley and Design Doctor Thom Filicia.
The Gay Pals from Queer Eye For The Straight Girl - Introducing Robbie Laughlin- The Look, Danny Teeson- The Life, Damon Pease- The Locale and Honey Labrador- The Lady.
The Queer Eye Approach
The Fab 5 from Queer Eye For The Straight Guy - The Fab 5 are sophisticated and well-rounded as they vow to create a "better straight man... who want[s] to get the girl, the job or just the look."
The Gay Pals from Queer Eye For The Straight Girl - Besides tailoring their advice and guidance around the special events of straight girls, the Gal Pals have a softer approach and are "less interested in the broad strokes and are considerably more concerned with the details of each element of their transformations."
The Queer Eye Conclusion
Bravo has taken a makeover phenomena to a level that keeps reality enthusiasts and skeptics alike glued to the screen. Seeing the tears in a straight guy's eyes as he embraces his new look and lifestyle can only parallel to the emotion that elevates as the Gal Pals prepare a straight girl for perhaps one of her most important days. Bravo has highlighted the well-rounded aspect of gay and lesbian lifestyle and the positive contributions gays can make to those around us.
