BRAVO'S "QUEER EYE FOR THE STRAIGHT GIRL" CASTING SPECIAL TO AIR WEDNESDAY, MARCH 2 AT 9-10 PM ET

BURBANK, Calif. -- February 25, 2005 -- Is it nature or nurture that enables budding fashionistas to ascend to the ranks of a Queer Eye? It takes wit, charm, warmth, an outstanding sense of style and sophistication, and the ability to empower straight girls to embrace the positive and improve upon the negative ? but what else? Bravo's "Queer Eye for the Straight Girl" casting special delves into the decisions and debate that went into choosing the new team, as well as explores where Robbie Laughlin ("The Look"), Danny Teeson ("The Life"), Damon Pease ("The Locale") and Honey Labrador ("The Lady") came from, who they are, and why they're perfect for their roles. The "Queer Eye for the Straight Girl" casting special debuts Wednesday, March 2 at 9:00-10:00 p.m. ET on Bravo.

"Seventy-five thousand queens get stuffed into a big room with a camera and they have to prove themselves, which kind of sounds like a gay club on a Saturday night. But in this instance it was the casting of 'Queer Eye,'" said Danny Teeson when asked about the casting process during his interview for the special.

Through hilarious casting session outtakes, production bloopers, and candid interviews with the cast, creators, and the Fab Five themselves, viewers will see first hand the process that went into finding a new team worthy of the name Queer Eye. More importantly, the special proves the importance of friendship and chemistry in casting, as the success of the makeovers is contingent on the ability of the Gal Pals to relate to the straight girls and transcend the boundaries of their categories to work in unison to help them reach their dreams.

Following the casting special at 10:00-11:00 p.m. ET, it's an all-new episode of "Queer Eye for the Straight Girl" as the "Gal Pals" tackle Kim D., a 32-year-old farm girl turned punk rocker who needs a helping hand along her path to self discovery and dream of making a living off her music.

"Queer Eye for the Straight Girl" is produced for Bravo by Scout Productions.
