It’s been more than a decade since the original Queer Eye went off the air. But Netflix’s latest reboot breathes life into the franchise. This version boasts a new Fab Five to better the lives of those desperate for help. But Queer Eye is much more than a fun, light-hearted program. Because it’s also a chance for struggling men and women to start over. With the help of food and wine specialist Antoni Porowski, interior designer Bobby Berk, grooming and hygiene consultant Jonathan Van Ness, fashion designer Tan France and culture expert Karamo Brown, fan-favorite Queer Eye star Tom Jackson was able to completely turn his life around and win back his lady love, ex-wife Abby.
Meet Tom Jackson
Tom Jackson is the well-intentioned, slightly out of touch man desperately in need of a lifestyle makeover from the premiere episode of Netflix’s “Queer Eye” reboot. Bringing the Fab Five to tears with his declaration that “you can’t fix ugly,” Jackson made it clear that he didn’t possess the skills to better his life on his own. Down on his luck, Jackson spent much of the episode focused on the dissolution of his marriage to ex-wife Abby.
