This essay is concerned with how Queer Eye: We’re in Japan! reinserts U.S. exceptionalism while the Fab Five perform the makeovers of the four Japanese nominees (S1E1–S1E4). However, this essay also examines possibilities of Queer Eye: We’re in Japan! that transgress issues of gender, sexuality, and the body. The overall goal is to critique Queer Eye: We’re in Japan! that showcases im/possibilities of Japaneseness.
