Every 'Queer Eye' Season 3 Episode, Ranked

Every 'Queer Eye' Season 3 Episode, Ranked

T'was a difficult, yet necessary, task.


If you're like me, you've already finished watching season 3 of "Queer Eye" on Netflix. Or, maybe you've never watched "Queer Eye" but you've heard how amazing it is and you want to check it out. Whether you want to relive season 3 or figure out if the show is worth watching, this list is for you.

Full disclosure, I found all eight of the episodes to be inspiring, uplifting and downright entertaining. Each of the heroes (the show's subjects) were incredible and the Fab Five did what they do best. However, this was the first season that I thought some of the episodes really stood out over the others.

Plus, who doesn't love a good ranking?

8. Episode 7: "Sloth to Slay"


I feel awful ranking this episode as my least favorite, but the other seven episodes were simply better. Thomas and his sister were adorable, their story really resonated with me, and I was happy to see how Thomas progressed. However, this episode just didn't have that tear-jerker moment that "Queer Eye" fans know and love.

7. Episode 8: "Baby on Board"


I think I was extra let down by this episode because the season finales have been so good in the past, and this one just wasn't on par. The only reason this episode did not rank last for me was (spoiler alert) the proposal. The baking scene with Tony, his daughter, and Antony was definitely a highlight in this one too.

However, I still found this episode to be quite boring. I was also furious that Tony shaved his beard after Jonathan did such a great job cleaning it up! The horror in JVN's eyes as he watched Tony shave in the playback broke my heart.

6. Episode 5: "Black Girl Magic"


This was another great episode that got pushed to the bottom of my list due to the sheer greatness of the others. In the end, this episode really had some beautiful moments. Jess has such a beautiful soul and her bond that she formed with Bobby and Karamo was so special. Maybe this episode was missing the wow-factor for me because Jess was already a fashionable girl with pretty hair so the best the Fab Five could do was refine her beauty. That being said, this is definitely an episode you won't want to miss.

5. Episode 4: "When Robert Met Jamie"


I really enjoy any "Queer Eye" episode where the hero is really open to embrace the process and this was one of them. With the help of the Fab Five, Robert was really able to clean up his act just in time for his wedding. This episode also had my favorite work from Bobby for the season and one of my favorite makeovers from JVN. The wedding footage at the end was absolutely precious.

4. Episode 2: "Lost Boy"


I loved this episode because of the amazing transformations. Bobby, Tan and Jonathan really outdid themselves on this one. I didn't know how Tan would pull off dressing a guy that works outside for hours, in the summer, with children, but he pulled it off. I also really enjoyed watching the happy ending for Joey and his son.

3. Episode 6: "Elrod & Sons"


This episode has a lot of special moments, including the adorable scene where Antoni pretends to be a velociraptor with the Elrod boys. If I'm being honest here, this episode had me crying over and over again. My favorite scene of the entire season comes from this episode. That's right — I'm talking about the reveal of the chest that Bobby made to hold the memories of Alison (deceased mother and wife) with her handwriting from the boy's birthday cards engraved inside. Bobby really outdid himself there.

The scene with the storybook that had Alison's recorded voice reading to the boys was a close second for my favorite scene of the season.

2. Episode 1: From Hunter to Huntee


Let's be real, Jody's hair transformation is some of JVN's best work. I really loved everything about this episode, but her transformation really sealed the deal for me. Karamo's idea to bring Jody to a support circle to speak to other women was also very touching.

I'd say this was the most memorable episode of the season for sure.

1. Episode 3: Jones Bar-B-Q


I'd be willing to bet that this episode was the favorite of a lot of people. The Jones sisters were so humble, hard-working, lovable and sweet. It was so great to see the Fab Five help them find their confidence and the time to care for themselves. The scene where Shorty gets her teeth fixed is perfect for anytime you feel like having a good ol' ugly cry. Something tells me these ladies make a mean brisket and I intend to find out for myself someday.

Bethel Church's Gay Conversion Program Is A Huge Problem And We're Not Talking Enough About It

Religion doesn't give us a right to purposefully abuse a community.


About a year ago, in May of 2018, Bethel Church in Redding, California came out publicly against a set of proposed laws which would make it illegal for a licensed mental health professional to perform 'conversion therapy' in order to change the sexual orientation or same-sex attractions of a person. The head pastor of the church asked for members of Bethel Church to act against the three bills (California AB 1779, AB 2943 and AB 2119), urging them to contact their congressmen and ask for them to prevent the laws from passing, all in order for them to continue their harmful ex-gay ministry.

Today, Bethel Church is under scrutiny for the role out of their ex-gay conversion initiative, CHANGED. The website of the initiative movement claims that any change is possible through Jesus, and encourages those who identify as LGBTQ+ to abandon the "pain, rejection, and despair," of being LGBTQ+. (CHANGED website). This movement is not the first, but just the next in a long line of organizations claiming to provide change for those who identify as LGBTQ+, despite this being an impossibility. Ex-gay programs, in actuality, only serve to push those who go through them farther away from the love of God.

Conversion therapy for LGBTQ+ people has been proven not only to be completely ineffective but has also been found to cause intense mental issues and in many cases, a strong correlation to suicide. Those who have gone through ex-gay therapy programs such as Exodus International or Focus on the Family's Love Won Out have admitted that even after successfully completing the program they had not experienced a change in their same-sex attraction. The founder of Exodus International even claimed that by his estimation, 99.9% of those who had gone through his organization's therapy had not experienced any change in their orientation. Exodus International was considered intensely controversial, and their methods considered by most, if not all, mental health professionals to be incredibly damaging. Those who come out of conversion therapy experience intense feelings of depression and often experience a lack of self-worth.

As a Christian, I grieve every single time someone claiming to believe what I do comes out and condemns the LGBT community. It hurts to see one community I am a member of being hateful towards another community I am just as proud to be a part of. This news stung a little harder because I for a long time have loved Bethel Church's worship band. Their songs have spoken to me in ways I cannot fully describe, helping to bring me closer to the God I believe in. A God who I can say for certain would never advocate for something as damaging and destructive as conversion therapy. The same Jesus who Bethel's songs worship is the same Jesus who calls us to love everyone. Bethel Church is not following this call, and it is important that we speak out against conversion therapy, and not allow our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ to carry out such a harmful program.

13 Good And Not-So-Good Emotions You're Feeling In Anticipation Of 'Avengers: Endgame'

Tom Holland, if you're reading this, please hold me.


"Avengers: Endgame" is only days away and as a hardcore Marvel movie lover, I am beyond excited. Well, excited wouldn't be the correct way to describe. I'm nervous, frightened, nauseous, happy, and I have my therapist on speed dial in case I need someone to talk to. I'm going to be an emotional wreck. After "Infinity War," I didn't know how to feel for three days. I was essentially in mourning. And now with this movie, this will be the end of Avengers saga. (Tom Holland, if you're reading this, please hold me. I'm not feeling so good).

If you're anything like me, you understand. Here are 13 things you're probably feeling right now:

1. Fear


Will our favorites die for good?! What will happen to the Avengers? Will they lead normal lives?

2. Hope

I hope they can do this! They seem scared, but confident. They can handle anything.

3. Emotional breakdown

Does this even need an explanation?

4. Anticipation

I can't wait to see this epic battle. We have all been waiting a year for this movie and it's finally here!

5. Nervousness

Will they be able to save the planet? Will they be able to bring the rest of the Avengers back? Can they kill Thanos?

6. Hyped

What's NOT to be hyped about?

7. Love

Can we appreciate the beautiful cast? I love them. They're so talented. I also really love Chris Evans, aka Captain America. Cap, I love you.

Also, Tom, call me.

8. Confidence

Will Ant Man and Captain Marvel be the ones to save the universe? They got this. The Avengers got this. They will save us all.

9. Envy

I just really want to have powers and be a superhero, okay?


Captain Marvel finally gets to be with the avengers!

11. Grief

I miss Spider-Man. He was so scared, and young, and the way he clung to Tony.....tears, man, tears.

12. Hatred

I hate Thanos. You hate Thanos. We all hate Thanos.

13. Uncertainty

We all know that with "Avengers: Infinity War," what was in the trailers weren't really in the movie. So, what we are seeing now on TV and online, is that real? What's going to happen?!
