"Aussie Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" was an Australian reality television series that was based on the original and hugely popular American series, "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy".

Much like the American version, the program is premised on the stereotype that gay men are superior in matters of fashion, style, personal grooming, interior design and culture. In each episode, a team of five gay men—known collectively as the "Fab Five"—perform a makeover on a subject, usually a straight man, revamping his wardrobe, redecorating his home and offering advice on grooming, lifestyle and food.

The program premiered on Network Ten at nowrap|7:30 pm on Wednesday 9 February 2005, during the first week the 2005 Australian ratings season to a national audience of 903,254.cite news|first=Andrew|last=Hornery|title=Aussie Queer Eye a big turn-off for advertisers|url=http://www.smh.com.au/news/TV--Radio/Aussie-Queer-Eye-a-big-turnoff-for-advertisers/2005/02/18/1108709437657.html|work=The Sydney Morning Herald|date=2005-02-19|accessdate=2007-12-30] After the second episode saw its audience share drop 20 per cent to 725,263, rumours began the show would now be moved from its prime time slot at nowrap|7.30 pm on Wednesdays to nowrap|9.30 pm on Mondays.
