The Fab Five have made it to Queer Eye season six, and we bet it will be bigger than ever as the gang head to the Lone Star State: Texas.
Earlier in December, Netflix released the official trailer for the sixth season, as Karamo, Jonathan, Antoni, Tan and Bobby set about transforming the lives of several deserving, handpicked Texans.
For those of you new to this, Queer Eye is a reality makeover series rebooted from the original Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, which ran from 2003 to 2007.
This reboot is hosted by five LGBTQ+ superstars who bring different lifestyle skillsets to changing a chosen participant's life. The majority of filming has taken place in the US previously, with four episodes out of 48 being filmed in Japan, showing there’s scope for more.

The release announcement came with an all-new country-fied first look at the new opening titles to keep with the show's setting of Austin, Texas this season.
An official Queer Eye season six trailer was released at the end of December 2021, with Bobby Berk teasing that this time, the Fab Five will embark on the "biggest thing" they've ever attempted.
The pandemic had halted production on the sixth season, but the gang bounced back and resumed on 23rd April.
While some had speculated we would not see the new episodes until 2022, Netflix has awarded us an end-of-year treat.

Buckle up, cowboys and cowgirls, Texan capital Austin is the next location for Queer Eye season six.

What is Queer Eye?
Queer Eye is a reboot of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, a makeover show from the early 00s.
The Netflix series sees the Fab Five transform people's lives with their talents - Karamo Brown is a culture and lifestyle guru, Jonathan Van Ness takes care of grooming and hair, Antoni Porowski brings some flair to the kitchen, Tan France sorts the wardrobe and Bobby Berk helps with interior design.
Their non-judgemental approach is about giving people back their self-esteem and helping them prioritise their own wellbeing, rather than forcing them to wear clothes just because they are fashionable. The makeovers are truly life-changing as a result.
Warning: you'll cry happy tears.
