'QUEER EYE' CHARGES INTO SEASON THREE WITH EMPHASIS ON STRAIGHT GUYS'UNIQUE STORIES PLUS A NEW UMBRELLA TITLE

SEASON THREE PREMIERES WITH SPECIAL RED SOX EPISODE TUESDAY, JUNE 7 @ 10 PM ET/PT ON BRAVO

NEW YORK - May 31, 2005 - In its third season, the Emmy Award-winning Bravo favorite, "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy", kicks off with a shortened title and an emphasis on more emotionally driven storytelling pegged to the straight guys' unique situations. Now titled simply "Queer Eye", the new season is set to premiere Tuesday, June 7 @ 10 PM ET/PT.

"The new abbreviated title for the series is a nod to the show's status in the world of pop culture," said Lauren Zalaznick, President, Bravo. 'Queer Eye' has become part of our everyday vernacular."

Season three kicks off as the Fab 5 (Carson Kressley, Jai Rodriguez, Kyan Douglas, Thom Filicia and Ted Allen) take on five of the world famous Red Sox (Kevin Millar, Johnny Damon, Jason Varitek, Tim Wakefield and Doug Mirabelli) and try to reverse their curse of bad style. The Queer Eye guys descend on Red Sox spring training and turn the stadium's press room into a spa, complete with scented candles, a pedicure station, and a separate fashion area. Each player is outfitted with a new look and treated to an assortment of services including massages, pedicures, hair highlights and even a little back waxing! The Fab 5 also teams with the players' wives - Jeanna Millar, Michelle Damon, Karen Varitek, Stacy Wakefield and Kristin Mirabelli - to help the community raise money for some Florida little leaguers to re-build their baseball fields that were severely damaged by Hurricane Charley. These future all-stars are given the surprise of their lives when they are invited to play a couple of innings at the stadium with the Red Sox and the Fab 5!

The Fab 5 continue to work their make-better magic on straight men throughout the season, with new installments that will make viewers laugh and cry in the same breath.

"We've put the spotlight on some intriguing subjects this season, ordinary people who've done extraordinary deeds as well as people who have an amazing outlook on life, but a challengingly poor sense of style." This season we've stepped things up a notch by focusing on compelling personal stories that will make this appointment television at its best."

Highlights include:

* Lee, a stay-at-home super dad to his eight foster children.

* Hector, a war veteran injured in Iraq, who returns home and adjusts to life in a wheelchair.

* Paulo, a new father of two-year-old quintuplets.

* Gary, a cystic fibrosis survivor who, against the medical odds, is about to celebrate his 40th birthday with the help of good friend, Boomer Esiason.
