Bravo’s ”Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” is a hit, but would anyone watch if it were the other way around? According to Variety, the cable channel will find out some time next year when it airs a one-off special called ”Straight Eye for the Queer Guy,” in which five straight guys will makeover a gay man — perhaps one who’s too stylish.

No word yet on an airdate or casting for the special (will ”Queer Eye”’s Fab Five take part?), but possible straight-style instructions may include ”power tools 101, NFL basics, decorating your garage, two-minute hair, and sports event etiquette,” Variety reports.

”Straight Eye” is one of at least two planned specials from the makers of ”Queer Eye.” The first is a holiday special that airs Dec. 16, where the ”Queer Eye” quintet will pay a visit to some of their old makeover beneficiaries and see if they’re still stylin’. New episodes of ”Queer Eye” begin airing Nov. 18.
