The Fab Five return for new season of ‘Queer Eye’

The Fab Five return for new season of ‘Queer Eye’

Netflix’s “Queer Eye” is coming back for season three on Friday, March 15. The five masterminds behind the successful reboot, Jonathan Van Ness (grooming), Bobby Berk (interior design), Tan France (fashion), Antoni Porowski (food and wine) and Karamo Brown (culture), are attracting worldwide attention with their positive energy and motivational mantras that are changing lives one day at a time. The first two seasons took place in areas around Atlanta, Georgia, but season three takes viewers to Kansas City, Missouri. 

“Heros,” what the show calls the subjects of the makeovers,  include indviduals of varying sexualities, genders, races and backgrounds . This creates an even larger appeal for people of all ages and interests. 

Jody Castellucci, 49, was nominated by her husband because she needed help gaining confidence. Castellucci, a guard in Kansas’ state men’s prison, developed a more masculine style and attitude and put her femininity to the side. However, with the help of the Fab Five, she learns how to embrace her feminine qualities without getting rid of the strength that drives many facets of her life. 

Jess Guilbeaux, 23, has experienced many challenges after coming out as a lesbian to her family at 16 years old. In the season three trailer, Guilbeaux said, “They expected me to be someone else. More black, less white. More gay, less gay. I feel like I don’t belong.” 

The Fab Five works with Guilbeaux to help her learn about the importance of self-care and putting herself first, which is something she has struggled with throughout her life. 

The group also works with siblings Mary and Deborah Jones who have big dreams of expanding their barbecue business but lack the time and resources to work toward their goal. 

They help these two sisters realize that there are other aspects to life besides work and that taking time for themselves will help them achieve their dreams in the food industry. 

The Fab Five believes in the power of asking for help and they follow and guide each of the heroes on their journeys to reclaiming their lives and leading happier and healthier lifestyles. 

They use their skills in order to help those who need a little extra push and have inspired many around the world to take charge of their own lives and work toward self-improvement and self-love. 

In addition to the show, the Fab Five also came out with a book, “Queer Eye: Love Yourself. Love Your Life.,” which provides readers with the chance to learn practical skills that can help them to lead their best lives and offers messages of hope for when times get tough. 

The trailer features a new song from pop singer Carly Rae Jepsen called “Now That I Found You” and leaves viewers wanting March 15 to come faster so they can stream all eight episodes.
