Queer Eye releases a mini-episode set in the town of Yass, Australia
Source: E! Online
The Fab Five have gone global for the special "make-better" episode Down Under, helping make over a farmer named George in a town that is actually named "Yass." "I think because Australia just legalized their same-sex marriage moment," says Jonathan Van Ness, "it's only fitting that we would sweep into a gorgeous little town and create a gorgeous community moment because, honey, is this rolling hill moment everything? Yes! Do they need a more pulled-together bistro? Probably." ALSO: Antoni Porowski is opening a restaurant.

Queer Eye's Antoni Porowski is releasing a cookbook, but can he actually cook?
Porowski's recipes on the Netflix series leave a lot to be desired, says Hazel Cills, even though "he has the unenviable task of teaching slobbish straight men to, um, turn on a freakin’ burner and make anything, anything really!...I’m still not 100% sure on whether or not Porowski can actually cook well enough to be a 'food expert.'"

“I could not be more thrilled to be writing about the recipes I love and think are essential to any novice home cook, professional, and somewhere in between,” said of his upcoming cookbook, due out next year with more than 100 recipes.

Porowski says he'd like to see, on his Netflix show, “anybody in politics who’s either very, very left or very, very right, who has strict one-sided views. I’d try to bring them a little closer to the middle and understand that there’s always another side.”

Netflix’s Queer Eye seems like an awkward fit in these "woke" times

Looking back at the original Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, the five stars had — with the exception of Carson Kressley — personalities that “were all pretty muted and down-to-earth,” says Kevin Fallon. “I had prepared myself for a cacophony of men in a**less chaps snapping their fingers and shouting ‘fierce’ every three seconds; in reality, they were certainly quippy, but also just normal, competent guys.” In the Netflix Queer Eye, “the men in the reboot are appealingly well-intentioned, but hardly as calibrated,” he says. The problem, he adds, is that the new Fab Five “subscribe to the modern reality-TV idea that LOUDER! IS! BETTER! At some point, this grating big-ness became the default for anyone looking to make an impression on reality TV, but it generally has the effect of seeming artificial and hollow. It’s a shame, because the encounters the hosts have with the men whose lifestyles they’re meant to rehab are, once the hysteria settles, quite genuine. Beautiful, even.”
- This is a kinder, gentler Queer Eye where the cattiness has been toned down
- The Atlanta-set reboot seems recalibrated “slightly but emphatically… for the Trump era”
- Watch the original Queer Eye cast meet their successors
- The original Queer Eye stars reflect on the impact they made in 2003
- Thanks to commercial-free Netflix, the new Queer Eye has time to delve deeper with each guy
