Carson Kressley

Carson Kressley became a household name in 2003 when he, Ted Allen, Jai Rodriguez, Thom Filicia, and Kyan Douglas turned the reality TV world upside down with the premiere of “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.” At the time, Bravo was a little-known network, but, thanks to fashion expert Kressley and his tailored cohorts, the cable channel’s popularity exploded overnight. Since the Emmy-winning “Queer Eye” bid adieu in 2007, Kressley has maintained a presence on television as a red carpet correspondent, pageant judge, “Dancing With the Stars” contestant, and host of his very own OWN show, “Carson Nation.”
