Grooms and their brides rejoice as Bravo’s "Queer Eye" launches an all-new season with a block of wedding episodes that will feature everything from the perfect proposal to a fabulous ceremony. "Queer Eye" kicks off on Tuesday, December 6 at 10:00 PM ET/PT with a premiere proposal episode.
The ultimate kings of style will help create the perfect wedding experience for each couple as they tackle touchy topics such as priest vs. rabbi and lasagna vs. chopped liver. The Fab Five are truly "best men" as they weigh in on everything from asking for the parents’ permission to popping the question to planning an affair to remember.
"For the very first time, the Fab Five rush in to help straight guys with the most important decision and event of their lives – marriage," said Andrew Cohen, Vice President of Production and Programming. "Tying the knot has never been this much fun!"
A surprise proposal will kick-off Bravo’s new season of "Queer Eye" as straight guy Joe Uva proves to his longtime girlfriend Laura, as well as her family and friends, that he deserves her hand in marriage after ten years of courtship. After meeting Laura at jury duty at the White Plains Courthouse, the two quickly started dating. And dating. And dating. Laura was patient, and trusted Joe when he said he’d marry her soon, but soon never came. When Joe bought himself a Harley instead of buying Laura a ring, she ended the relationship. Friends and family always said these two were meant to be, but since Joe did not understand how to make a relationship work, he was seriously in the doghouse when the Fab Five stepped in to help him out. In a fairytale proposal, Joe finally proves to the world that Laura comes first.
The Fab Five’s next mission is to plan a magnificent wedding for their favorite couple, Joe and Laura, whose story is the ultimate "Queer Eye" fairy tale. Girl met boy. Girl and boy fell in love. Girl dated boy. And dated him… And dated him… Ten years later, they were still dating without boy proposing to girl. Laura forced herself to try to move on and Joe realized he could not live without her, so he summoned the Fab Five for help in winning her back. The Fab Five succeed, and now that Joe proposed and Laura said "yes," they are back to help this duo plan their dream wedding. The Fab Five pool their resources and recruit the best that New York has to offer – the best wedding planner, caterer, church, and reception hall for the beautiful bride Laura and her handsome groom Joe. Their elaborate "Queer Eye" wedding is beyond comparison and will premiere on Tuesday, December 13 at 10:00 PM.
In the third wedding-installment, "Queer Eye" will feature New Yorker Maria and Texan David, who met almost four years ago and fell madly in love while students at medical school. They are now both residents with distance between them as Maria lives in New York and David lives in Boston. Despite their long distance relationship, they are ready to get married. There is a catch. Maria comes from a family of practicing Italian Catholics from Queens, New York, and David’s parents are liberal Jews from Dallas, Texas. With such severe differences in traditions and beliefs, Maria and David are terrified to plan their actual wedding. They want the wedding to be focused on them, not on the sensitive issues surrounding their very different backgrounds. They have recruited the Fab Five to help them plan a spectacular wedding so they can start their new life together without allowing their respective families to dictate the details. "Queer Eye’s" Fab Five will plan an over-the-top rehearsal dinner with a surprise twist that will premiere on Tuesday, December 20 at 10:00 PM.
