Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that the main characters in this makeover reality series are five gay men who, while witty, say and do things that might offend some audiences. There's also no shortage of celebratory drinking and subtle sexual references. As makeover shows go, this is one of the more positive, feel-good ones; the guys actually refer to what they do as a "make-better," and they're generous and engouraging as a rule.
- Sexual Content
- Plenty of teasing sexual innuendo and banter. Sometimes the guys go looking for sex toys and porn in their subject's drawers or pretend to hit on him -- but it's all in fun. Some episodes are more explicit in their discussion of sex (usually between married or longtime couples) and include visuals of things like sex toys. One episode featured a nudist, but the crucial bits were blurred out.
- Not applicable
- Some mild swearing is bleeped out.
- Social Behavior
- The five leads poke lots of fun at gay stereotypes. They help their subjects feel better and more confident about themselves and are always generous. Even though they usually belittle the subject's current style and decorating choices at the beginning of each episode, they make an effort to get to know each subject and tailor their suggestions to each one's tastes and means.
- Rampant. Every product used in the makeover is named, and companies sponsor big giveaways (laptops, diamond rings) in exchange for plugs on the show. Famous names sometimes drop by the show in exchange for a little publicity, too.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- The five have celebratory cocktails at the end of each episode, and often share social drinks with their subjects, too.
- Age appropriate
- Not an issue
- Depends on your kid and your family
- Not appropriate for kids of the age most likely to want to see it
