VIEWERS 2.4 million

WHAT HAPPENED Five gay men barged into the lives of sloppy straight guys for a head-to-toe makeover. The oft-hilarious process of plucking, waxing, and poking culminated in the presentation of the well-scrubbed final product to family and friends.

LASTING CONTRIBUTION TO THE GENRE ''Tszujing'' (''Queer'' for primping).
