Carson Kressley, one of the original Fab Five members on the series “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy,” thinks the series was more “groundbreaking” than its Netflix revival.
Kressley, who served as the show’s fashion guru, was asked by Variety for his thoughts on the reboot’s three Emmy nominations including Outstanding Structured Reality Program.
“I’m thrilled that they’re nominated, but it was a little more groundbreaking back when we won an Emmy in 2004,” Kressley said.
The original, which aired on Bravo, received numerous Emmy nominations as well and won Outstanding Reality Program in 2004.
However, Kressley is happy to see diversity on television continue to grow.
“We’re so lucky to work in TV,” Carson told Variety. “It’s really having a renaissance right now and so inclusive and diverse.”
