Colorful, whimsical and full of energy, Netflix Weird Eyes exploded onto our screens and into our hearts in 2018. Since then, the reboot has remained wildly popular, with the show winning the Outstanding Structured Reality Program Emmy five years in a row.
Before you settle into Season 7, why not try some of the Fab Five’s best transformations? From an Australian farmer to a Japanese hospital nurse and an American dog groomer, join Antoni Porowski, Bobby Berk, Jonathan Van Ness, French Tan, And Karamo Chocolate because they change lives.
10 “Yass, Australia!” — Minisode
The Fab Five travel downstairs to the rural town of Yass (yes, that’s real), where they meet local farmer George. George went from scruffy “Australian Marlboro Man” to a rosy-cheeked, smiling cowboy ready to take on the world.
George’s nervous energy around the guy is sweet and endearing, and you can see his confidence growing. It made even more tears when George told his son, Levi, that he inspired him, and Levi burst into tears. The couple then hugged the smiles plastered on their faces. Yes dear!
9 “Groomer Has It” — Season 5, Episode 2
Rahanna’s dog walker is in dire need of help as she tries to keep her business in her run-down 23-year-old RV. People gave Rahanna, her business, and her home a magical makeover that any dog owner would admire.
Viewers will love Rahanna’s energy and sweet smile as she finally reaches her height. But perhaps the most iconic moment was when the men threw a doggy fashion show emblazoned from toe to ear with Stylish Pooch’s new bright pink logo.
8 “Disabled, But Not Really” — Season 4, Episode 2
The guys arrive in Kansas City to help Wesley, a wheelchair user who needs some extra confidence to achieve his dreams. While Bobby renovates his house to make it more accessible, others help him deal with his past, cook delicious meals and present a professional image for his fundraising events.
Wesley’s beautiful smile is infectious, and there are so many moments when he opens up and asks the guys for hugs. Wesley didn’t let his wheelchair stop him and taught people that “it’s okay…to be different and comfortable in your own skin.”
7 “Japan Vacation” — ‘We are in Japan!’, Episode 1
Kind, caring, and funny, Yoko runs a hospice in her home and even gives up her bedroom for her patients. Fab Five arrives and fills him with the confidence, love, and joy he deserves. (And he got his room back!)
Yoko said she always wanted to dress like that Audrey Hepburn, and Tan did just that. Viewers will love her reaction as her face lights up, telling her she feels graceful and elegant in her new outfit. Karamo took it one step further by asking her to ride a Vespa, the same car as Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck drive in his favorite movie Roman holiday.
6 “A Worthy Proposal” — Season 2, Episode 2
William is stuck in the 70s with his style and desperately wants to propose to his girlfriend, Shannon, but fears heartbreak and rejection. The Fab Five stepped in and changed his life completely, giving him the confidence he needed to take the next step in his life.
Johnathan worked his magic on William, and his transformation was absolutely jaw-dropping. This was then followed by an Oscar worthy proposal which was filmed and made by William. According to Netflix, the couple are still together today and thriving. Someone give us tissues.
5 A Legend In The Baking — Season 6, Episode 9
Describing herself as a “kitchen troll”, Sarah tries to keep her adorable bakery running after it is vandalized and the COVID-19 pandemic takes its toll. The guys took Sarah under their wing, giving her the confidence she needed to become the face of her newly turned business.
Besides the men drooling and screaming over Sarah’s sweet cookies, there are so many heartwarming scenes in this episode. As an Asian-American business owner, Sarah is learning to embrace her heritage and hope that her food continues to dispel bigotry.
4 “Ideal Woman” — ‘We Are In Japan!’, Episode 3
Kae is an aspiring manga illustrator with a passion for creating artwork for Japanese publishers. His lack of confidence, caused by years of bullying, causes him to ignore opportunities and avoid challenges to avoid failure. The Fab Five help Kae and make her see how beautiful and talented she really is.
Viewers will be blown away by Kae’s talent and roots for her success throughout the episode. Kae even got special advice from one of Japan’s most beloved celebrities, the comedian Naomi Watanabe, about how to love yourself and your body. O queen!
3 “Crazy In Love” — ‘We’re in Japan!’, Episode 2
As a gay man in Japan, Kan struggles to truly be himself until the men arrive. With newfound confidence, Kan introduces his girlfriend of two years to his family. The episode ends with Kan and his girlfriend holding hands — ouch!
Tan helped Kan realize his wardrobe dreams in stunning prints and colors. As the people left, Kan cried and thanked them for coming to Japan. Before you cry, Netflix says that Kan is moving to the UK to be with Tom, and the couple will tie the knot in 2021.
2 “Craw-Zaddy” — Season 6, Episode 5
“It’s too easy to exist and too hard to live,” said Todd, owner of Plooky’s Cajun Boiling Pot in Texas. Todd was wrapped up in his grief when the Fab Five arrived, but he was open and ready for change, and, wow, the transformation was stunning.
Aptly nicknamed “craw-zaddy” by people, Todd is speechless as he walks into his new restaurant, hugging Bobby with tears in his eyes. This episode will warm your heart and remind you of the beauty of life and all it has to offer.
1 “You Can’t Fix Ugly” — Season 1, Episode 1

This transformation is a must watch for fans of the show and reminds us how much the Fab Five can change people’s lives. Tom’s eyes are brighter, he’s smiling, and he’s standing taller after the makeover, giving him the push he needs to get the Abbey back. Tom sadly passed away in March 2023; his obituary read, “Please watch season 1, episode 1 of Weird Eyes on Netflix and tell others about it out of respect for Tom.”
