Ten years ago, a handsome and gabby group of five gay lifestyle experts blazed onto the TV scene as makeover savants, opening doors to their worlds of culture, beauty, food and style – and in the process, exposing for many hopeless heteros what it's like to live and thrive as a gay men.
On Sunday, the much-loved Queer Eye for the Straight Guy cast will return with a reunion show on Bravo, talking to Andy Cohen about their pioneering entry into reality television and how it's changed their lives thus far, turning nearly all of the Fab 5, as they were known, into household names.
Among the show's biggest revelations? Fashion and style guru Carson Kressley and recently engaged celeb chef Ted Allen were not out to their families when the show was about to air.

While some contestants leave Dancing with the Stars teary-eyed, on Tuesday night when Carson Kressley was eliminated, he maintained the same positive attitude he demonstrated all five weeks on the show.
Kressley explained that the entire cast made him feel like he "belonged" from the minute he first met his partner Anna Trebunskaya until the moment they were sent home.
"That was really special for me," the former Queer Eye star told reporters backstage after the show. "It's not always something that I have felt. I think that's what's been so phenomenal about the show and this experience. It was an amazing group of people."
Calling his acceptance "really powerful, positive stuff," Kressley, 41, said, "This show did exactly what I hoped it would do for me. Challenge yourself, jump off the deep end and learn to swim."

As the last two elimination episodes of Dancing with the Stars have proven, being at the top of the leaderboard doesn't necessarily equal safety from dismissal.
Monday night's lowest scoring couples – Carson Kressley and Anna Trebunskaya, Chaz Bono and Lacey Schwimmer and Nancy Grace and Tristan McManus – have consistently been placed in the bottom by judges, but have been saved each week by voters.
Did Tuesday night's episode send another unexpected couple home? Or were one of the three bottom-scoring couples given the boot?

Carson Kressley charmed the crowd and judges on Dancing with the Stars, but his lack of technique has hurt him.
On Monday night, he and partner Anna Trebunskaya came in last place with 20 points, following their Pirates of the Caribbean-themed Viennese Waltz.
Did the high-energy dancing duo get the boot? Or did one of the other low-scoring pairs – Chynna Phillips and Tony Dovolani; Nancy Grace and Tristan McManus; Chaz Bono and Lacey Schwimmer – hang up their dancing shoes?

While Carson Kressley plays dancer, his dog, Scooby, is holding down the farm.
The TV star and fashion expert, who's currently cha-cha-ing his way through Dancing with the Stars, once said that his Christmas wish was to get a puppy and a boyfriend. Well, Santa was listening.
"The puppy happened," Kressley told PEOPLE at the American Humane Association Hero Dog Awards presented by Cesar Canine Cuisine. "Sometimes boyfriends are like puppies, too. Kind of like getting two for one."
