“Queer Eye” season three brings in a more diverse group of men and women of different races and backgrounds from the Kansas and Missouri areas.
The Fab 5 is back again to help people of all different backgrounds gain confidence and become the best version of themselves. This season they help our their first duo and first lesbian.
The duo, Deborah and Mary Jones, are two sisters who own a slow-cook barbecue food truck. They are famous for their sauce they use on the food and it has never been written down or distributed anywhere else.
The Fab 5 helps remodel their business, which is different from the typical house remodel as seen in previous episodes. The group helps the sisters to get their sauce recipe written down and distributed, which was a dream of theirs.
The sisters learned more about self care, and that it is okay to take time to yourself. By taking care of themselves and slowing down and relaxing for a bit, they learned they could better serve their customers.
Jess Gilbo is a 23-year-old woman who was kicked out of her adoptive parent’s home at age 16. She since became very independent and was on her own most of the time. She has friends that come and go, and does not try and reach out for help because she feels bad.
Antoni Porowski and Bobby Berk, two members of the Fab 5, strongly encouraged Gilbo that it is ok to reach out to people for help. Berk set up a reunion with Glibo’s sister, Jenise, whom she had not talked to in years.
Gilbo also struggled living in a predominantly conservative town, there was a very small community of gay people. In high school, she was made fun of and called names for not being “black enough.” Fab 5 member Karamo helped her to see that she was a strong woman and she did not need to fit a certain mold.
The Fab 5 helped out some men in need of a makeover as well. Joey Green is the director of a children’s camp, and recently suffered from a divorce.
“I have Peter Pan syndrome, and I never want to grow up,” Green said. “I guess to get along well with kids you’ve got to behave like a kid.”
He does not groom or present himself well, and he seems to have difficulty doing the most basic things such as showering and brushing his teeth. Green struggled with alcoholism a long time, and it partially caused the disconnect between him and his son. Green is not very connected with his son, so Karamo helps him reconnect with his son through art. The rest of the group help him the be the best version of himself by coming up with easy tips and tricks to stay well groomed and look professional.
Season three is the most relatable season to date with its diverse group of people that the “Queer Eye” cast interacts with.
