Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

They took the UnaBomber, shaved off his beard, cut his hair, and found David Bowie underneath!

My God, that man was hot. Not so down with the taxidermy myself, but if his lovely wife ever tires of him, I will volunteer happily to take him off her hands.

I also enjoyed the fact that they brought his family into all the aspects of it. His daughter came shopping with them. His wife participated a bit in the redecoration, at least as far as the Pile O Dried Flowers went, and then they all helped with dinner.

(Was amused at the "Plastic cups? What? Where did those come from? We never said plastic cups!" from the Fab 5. No, but you didn't say no plastic cups, guys. Think ahead, dudes. Expect the worst.)

David Bowie! Man, the resemblence was... with the beard on, I was saying he had a vague resemblence to John Glover; the *minute* the beard came off, maeyan and I were screaming "David Bowie! David Bowie! How the hell did they get David Bowie to come on the show and pretend to be an American?"

I watched it on video later, so saw a glimpse of him "after" and I literally thought, "how did they get David Bowie to come on the show?" I mean it's a twilight zonish resemblance.

We could *not* stop yelling at the screen. 10 minutes later we were still going "My god..."

I loved how last night's ep was a total family affair. How many 14 year old girls accompany their dads on shopping sprees? (Ones that don't involve hardware stores, that is) The Fab 5 did a great job of incorporating the family's tastes into the makeover, instead of making everything urban and hip. Who'da thunk Carson would step foot inside an Orvis? I thought Thom would barf all over the wife's quilts (which were beautiful, IMO) but he surprised me, too.

And yeah - 50ish Mr. David Bowie taxidermist was hot. His wife couldn't keep her hands off of him. The F5 looked more like they wanted to get their hands on his son, though. ;)

They did call her Holly Hobbie behind her back, though. ;-)

Yeah, which, was odd for me because he didn't do all that much for me. I didn't dislike him or anything -- just didn't see the "Wow, he's cute" vibe that the guys apparently did.

Wasn't that the best family, too? Very sweet, and I loved how unlike most of the wives/girlfriends on this show, Corinne was more about the husband than she was about the house.

But dude! David Bowie! *squees*

*happy sigh* Ah, how I've missed this show. I think right now, I'd have the most difficult time living without Jake 2.0 and Queer Eye. *snuggles her two favorite shows*

I loved the family. I loved how the F5 obviously loved the family, too. Carson: "I want them to adopt me!"

My god was that man hot. And I loved how devoted he was to wife and family - and how devoted they were right back. The daughter was adorable and, heh, when the wife screamed I thought she was reacting to the dining room. . . which I don't even think she commented on, she was so enraptured with newly shorn hubby.

And hey! For once the meals were complicated without being insane!

I love this show :)

How could you *not* be only looking at the newly shorn hubby?

maeyan was all "She's gonna wake up tomorrow morning and go "I've got David Bowie in my bed. My life could. not. get. better."

And their relationship and how much she appreciated him and how comfortable they all were with each other was only underscored by having Room For The Hooker In Trenton Who Wants Her Boots Back Lisa as the first lead-in. How *awkward* and uncomfortable was that relationship, compared to this one? (Or to the adorable marriage proposal one that fell in between them.)

I was amazed at the difference in the man. I mean every time they do the makeovers, they do something pretty drastic. I thought that the artist guy who ended up looking like ayoung Kenneth Brannaugh was amazing. This guy was just... wow. What a freaking difference! I loved the whole family aspect, too, which I thought was a nice change of pace.

My favorite is still George, the adorkable greek bodybuilder guy who was just so damn cute about everything that I wanted to pinch his cheeks.

George was the guy I kept going "No way. I call ringer. Not straight! Not straight!" about.

I could just stare at your userpic all day. *happy sigh*

Affirmative to the Jeff lust. Hot-TIE!! That being covered up should've been considered a national tragedy and given a grant from FEMA. Though I think his personality had a lot to do with the sexiness too...this was a sort of countryish guy, with a traditional home, and I couldn't help but think he'd be very traditionally-minded as well, but he was sweet and open-minded and just awesomely cool.

Hee! And I loved Thom's line about "what would they do at a picnic?" He continues to be my #1 gay boyfriend.

Re: transformation, I was thinking Richard Chamberlain meets David Bowie.

Yeah, there was a certain resemblence to Chamberlain there too; didn't think of it til you called his face to mind.

I loved how the wife could barely stop looking at him long enough for the picture to be taken. They were all so darling!

And man, he was disconcertingly hot when they were done with him. Holy heck. I can't say I blame her.

I want them to adopt me too.

I loved this episode! The daughter was such an adorable proto-fag-hag. She just loved the fab five! The David Bowie look was astonishing.

My favorite part was the Fab Five's joy at not having to clean the bathroom -- the hugging of the toilet was so funny.

The last married couple wasn't so good with the cleaning and had to have their bathroom cleaned (Adam?) and had a lot of kids' toys hanging around. These kids were a little older and one of them had moved out, so less mess.

I am so looking forward to next week's toupee episode.

That was hil-AR-ious. (Sadly they would so not hug our toilet....)
