He went on to host the TV shows like How to Look Good Naked, Carson Nation and True Beauty, and appeared on Dancing with the Stars and Big Brother Australia. In addition to his TV credits, Kressley has authored the books Off the Cuff, You’re Different and That’s Super and Queer Eye for the Straight Guy: The Fab Five’s Guide to Looking Better, Cooking Better, Dressing Better, Behaving Better and Living Better.
