Queer Eye by Canadian Guys

Of all the wonderful things Canada has to offer -- Montreal,
universal health care, Anne Murray -- what could be
more charming than two cute, witty gay boys offering
affectionate advice to those in need? Enter John
Simpson and Chris Carter, hosts of Chris & John
to the Rescue, a bubbly reality program currently
seen on Canada’s Out TV. The two come across as
likable if unnervingly upbeat, the types that end
every statement with an exclamation point! That
relentless and bald-faced optimism may prove to be an
asset when positioning themselves as life-changing
fairy godmothers. Season 3 sees the boys coming
to America, as they descend on the legendary gay
resort destination of Provincetown, Mass., working their
benevolent magic at this New England seaside getaway.
“Provincetown seemed like a great fit because
it’s this picturesque colonial village on Cape
Cod with a very heavy gay presence,” says
Simpson. “And we love colonial villages in Cape
Cod.” Adds Carter, “There are a lot of
people in P-Town who were in dire need of our unique
services. I honestly think that if we didn’t come to
that town and help those people out that things would
have gone downhill, fast. I’m talking John
Carpenter’s Escape From New York downhill.
You’d be surprised about how effective our
services can be.”
