As for the holiday special, the network promises the unveiling of "a brand new Fab 5 loft designed and decorated by Thom, plus updates on some of last season�s most memorable straight guys as the Fab 5 drop in unexpectedly to see how they are following the 'Queer Eye' mandate and come back with surprising results."
