I hope you've set your TiVos (if you hit the sack early) or, if you're a night owl, plan to watch at 10 tonight the first show of the last season of "Queer Eye" on Bravo.
I chatted recently with one of the show's Fab Five (pictured), Jai Rodriguez, who is known as the "culture vulture." That interview appeared today in Scene.
Jai says that being on "Queer Eye" was a life-changing experience that has opened many other career doors. For example, he's doing a lot of other TV/music gigs.
"I've been on a couple of soaps, competed on 'Celebrity Duets' (last September), was a guest star on 'Nip/Tuck,' and I got a record deal (the album comes out Friday)," he says.
Oh, and for you fashionistas out there, Jai is set to work alongside Daisy Fuentes on a program called "The Ultimate Style Show," set to debut next month on, natch, the Style Network.
If that wasn't enough, Jai, who is now 28 and living in L.A. ("I can't believe I'm saying that because I'm a diehard New Yorker"), has grown up, even though he's still considered the "baby" among the Fab Five.
"I saw Carson (Kressley, the fashion guru) out here and he said I was so 'sturdy.' Heck, I've even grown a beard!"
And all that etiquette stuff the Fab Five has been teaching the straight guys since 2003 has rubbed off.
* On fine dining: "I know what works and doesn't work when it comes to food and wine, but I still have trouble making it."
* On getting into a cab: "The man should enter first so the woman doesn't have to slide across the seat, unless he gets in on the other side."
* On going through a revolving door: "The man goes first so he can push the door open for the woman."
* On bringing a hostess gift: "Don't be offended if you bring a bottle of wine to dinner and it's not served. It might not complement the meal. That's unless you call ahead and ask what's on the menu. Still, the wine might already have been selected. Also, flowers aren't a good idea unless they're already in a vase. You don't want the host to have to stop and cut stems."
* On watching TV: "I love 'Grey's Anatomy' (he has a friend on the show), 'Brothers & Sisters,' 'Heroes' and, of course, 'Project Runway.' "
Jai says he's dying to do a reunion show with his "Queer Eye" teammates, but for now, he'll have to settle for singing the opening theme song for tonight's "Straight Guy Pageant," which airs at 9 on Bravo, preceding the season premiere.
