I was watching Queer Eye for the Straight Guy
last night like I have this past couple of months, and I always have a million thoughts while watching the show, so I figured I might as well put them into writing.
For starters, I don't think Ted Allen (food and wine dude) is gay at all. Think about it, he's droll, he wears boring clothes, he looks like a nerd, he likes playing with fire, and he doesn't even hit on the straight guys. Besides, you have all these excellent gay people in theater, fashion, grooming, and interior design, but you never know of any great gay chefs. Hell, if Iron Chef
ever taught us something, it's that the dude cooking your food could probably beat the living crap out of you. I think Ted's just doing the "Queer Eye" gig for the cash, and then uses the whole sensitive gay friend act to bag chicks.
Also, Thom Filicia doesn't look like he belongs with the other gay guys. He dresses badly, he's got a gut, he has terrible hair, and he's just ugly. I bet the pretty boys (Carson, Kyan, and Jai) just keep him around because he's the most talented person in the group. Don't you just love it when Thom cleans and paints the whole fucking house and moves around all these heavy furniture, and then Jai comes in and gives the guy a couple of tickets to a Broadway show? Just kills me all the time.
I could totally imagine Carson, Kyan, and Jai going out and not inviting Thom (they don't bother inviting Ted, who's probably out chasing tail). Like, the three would go out to brunch to make fun of Thom and make catty comments behind his back. Feeling ko lagi nilang ino-okray si Thom
