The individually talented "Fab Five" stole America's hearts in 2018 with this rebooted makeover show, by not just overhauling each "hero's" image on the outside, but also celebrating each subject's qualities on the inside. Season one of Queer Eye filmed through key cities in Georgia, while the current season takes place in and around the Kansas City area.
