Among the subjects for the new episodes: "a hippie dad postal worker who dabbles in taxidermy, an ex-marine striving to be both an officer and a gentleman, and a conservative lawyer who is ready to go topless for the first time in 13 years. . . by losing his toupee," according to a Bravo press release. 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."
