[via press release from Bravo]

BRAVO'S EMMY-AWARD WINNING 'QUEER EYE' HITS THE VEGAS STRIP

AN ALL-NEW FOURTH SEASON KICKS OFF WITH VEGAS-THEMED EPISODES PREMIERING TUESDAY, JUNE 6 AT 10 PM ET/PT

NEW YORK -- May 3, 2006 -- On Tuesday, June 6 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, Bravo will launch the fourth season of the Emmy-award winning "Queer Eye." The premiere episode of the sixteen, one-hour episode run will feature a loving New York couple whose only opportunity to be married in a harmonious environment is to elope to Vegas, even if that means having an Elvis, Bond, or Rocky Horror-themed wedding with Carson Kressley as the officiant. Feather boas, pink poodles and poker chips abound as the Fab Five ''make-better'' the sloppiest straight guys on the strip in the first three episodes of the season, which feature everything from a fire-eating magician whose dog is an Elvis Impersonator, to a celebrity Vegas poker tournament that will raise thousands of dollars for charity.

"The first three seasons of ''Queer Eye'' made an indelible mark on popular culture and captured the hearts and funny bones of loyal viewers throughout the world," said Frances Berwick, Senior Vice President, Programming and Production, Bravo. "Las Vegas is the perfect setting to kickoff this fourth season that brings the Fab Five face-to-face with an even broader range of make-better subjects like couples, families, and gay pride."

Carson, Jai, Kyan, Ted and Thom will make Sin City their playground as they take their subjects on a whirlwind ride to hot spots that include Harrah''s, Caesar''s Palace and the Forum Shops, Bally''s, Cristophe Salon, Rio, Paris, Silverton Hotel and Casino, Todd English''s Olives restaurant, the World Market Center, and Aureole restaurant. The "Queens" of style will then ''watch what happens'' from their loft away from home in the Palms Hotel. Travelocity is also one of the leading partners integrated into all three episodes.

The premiere episode of "Queer Eye" features Asher and Tsiliana, a New York couple who met on a dating website and instantly fell in love. They were engaged after three months, and now this fun loving duo is struggling to please his family, who wants an Orthodox wedding with hundreds of guests from their synagogue, as well as her family, who prefers something glamorous and secular. Enter the Fab Five, who will give Asher and Tsiliana the dream elopement of a lifetime as they are whisked off to a fantasy location where they will undergo a transformation that will take them from average to stunning. In typical Vegas fashion, Carson Kressley will officiate and Rita Rudner will do a reading offering marriage advice.

The Fab Five''s next mission is to help animal magician and fire-eater Max Clever and his wife Joni. This wacky artistic duo live on the outskirts of Vegas in Death Valley in a messy, ramshackle house surrounded by desert and filled to the rim with Max''s show animals, including 109 doves, five dogs, two parrots, one rabbit, and four fish. Joni is a talented painter who makes G-strings for showgirls and Max supports his family by performing his dog act for tourists. He deeply loves his wife and is frustrated that Joni''s artistic ability has gone unnoticed. With the help of the Fab Five, Max will spruce up his Vegas act so he can earn a better living and throw Joni a star-studded art opening that will showcase her talent, to be featured in the all-new episode airing Tuesday, June 13 at 10:00 PM.

In the third installment of "Queer Eye," viewers will meet Ed Miller, a professional poker player and accomplished author of a well-known "how to" poker-strategy book series. He has the skills of the game but none of the panache. The Fab Five help Ed become a successful and well-known poker guru, and Ed teaches one of them to play in a Texas Hold ''em poker match with classic Vegas performers who are currently performing on the strip, including Susan Anton, Penn Jillette, David Brenner, and George Wallace. The prize is meaningful to Ed, who grew up in New Orleans where his parents divorced and lived around the corner from each other until Hurricane Katrina destroyed both of their homes. Watch one of the Fabbers compete with Vegas royalty for a $10,000 prize, made possible by Travelocity, to be donated to Habitat for Humanity in New Orleans in an all-new episode premiering on Tuesday, June 20 at 10:00 PM.

Highlights from season four also include:

Steve Halliday, an injured firefighter, not only gets a second chance at life, but also gets a second chance to thank his beloved family and friends who helped him through a near death experience.

Jesan Hyde prepares for the hectic world of a male model and enlists the help of the Fab Five, who then recruit successful male model Tyson Beckford.

Jeff Berman is a gay man living in a "straight" world. The Fab Five team up to help Jeff become fabulous in his own way and embrace his gay lifestyle.
