Jemell M. Nelson - Queer Eye Season 7 Dedication Tribute Explained

We discuss the tribute to Jemell M. Nelson that appears in Season Seven, Episode Seven of the Netflix reality series Queer Eye.

As far as the success of reality TV shows goes, none have been as successful and well-loved as Queer Eye.

Originally known as Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, the show has recently dropped the seventh season of the show and seems to gain more popularity with each run.

The show would debut on Bravo, and this platform would be its home from 2003 to 2007. Then, the Netflix explosion would mean the show would be picked up and rebooted on their schedule in 2017.

The basic premise was essentially a makeover show, with a group of five queer men who would help a straight guy to become more stylish and often give them new insight into elements of their everyday life too.

The group, which became known as The Fab Five, is made up of fashion, design, and culture experts and is generally a feel-good show.
