Queer Eye is a little over a week away from premiering its fourth season.
Equally as important to the Fab Five are the heroes, the subjects for the described “make better” show. A video was released by Netflix, introducing the latest batch. Let’s just say, we’re already feeling a little verklempt.
Granted, that’s the usual emotion when watching Queer Eye.
A new video released by Netflix showcases our eight new heroes with their episode description. We have, of course, Jonathan Van Ness’ former teacher (Kathi), a recently divorced farmer (Matt), a paralyzed victim of gun violence (Wesley), an ex-soldier who builds homes for homeless vets (Brandonn), a Mexican-American woman caught between her two cultures (Deanna), a bachelor in his 60s (Kenny), a single dad who needs to grow up (John), and a dedicated drill team leader (Wanda).
Kathi Dooley, 60-something — “Without Further Ado”
Jonathan returns to his hometown to make over his high school music teacher, a selfless educator whose fiery red mullet hasn’t changed in 30 years.
Wesley Hamilton, 30 — “Disabled But Not Really”
A former bad boy who turned his life around after becoming paralyzed gets a wheelchair-accessible home and a new image to match his positive outlook.
John Stoner, 37 — “Stoner Skates By”
His 10-year-old daughter calls him a “man child.” But can this larger-than-life single dad grow up and become the adult she needs him to be?
Wanda Winters, 54 — “How Wanda Got Her Groove Back”
A demanding drill-team leader who’s set in her ways learns to shed her tough skin, soften her style — and open up to her two grown daughters.
Kenny Yarnevich, 64 — “On Golden Kenny”
The Fab 5 help a kind but lonely bachelor find unconditional love and get his dusty home ready for visitors, the first guests he’s had in years.
Deanna Munoz, 42 — “A Tale of Two Cultures”
A proud Chicana woman and arts advocate trades her dated locks for a polished look that gives her the confidence to talk publicly about her passions.
Brandonn Mixon, 28 — “Soldier Returns Home”
A scruffy ex-soldier who builds houses for homeless veterans spruces up to reconnect with his wife and finds unexpected strength in vulnerability.
Matt Moreland, 33 — “Farm to Table”
