Episode Summary

From Big Boy to Broadway Baby: Eric S
Eric S. is the manager of Empire Fitness Club in New Jersey, but at 320lbs, he's not the best advertisement for it! His body not only makes him feel bad, it is also preventing him from achieving his dream of making it as an actor. Not only does he only get auditions for "dumb fat guys," his own theater company, and won't even cast himself!

Eric is willing to do anything to get the body of his dreams, even if it means giving up his diet of burgers and soda, and submitting to the Fab Five's crack team of weight-loss experts as he becomes the second person to undergo Queer Eye bootcamp."moreless

        Carson (to woman on treadmill): Keep going! You're almost in Michigan!

        Jai (to Eric, while pumping iron): You're trying to get smaller and I'm trying to get bigger.

        Ted: Do you guys have uneven parallel bars here? I want to do a round off double pike.

        Carson (holding up jeans): These are a 38. If we could get you in these, I'd be the happiest little girl in the world.
        Eric: So would I. (pause) Maybe I wouldn't.

        Thom: None of this furniture is worthy of the amount of stairs you had to carry it up.

        Kyan (to Eric's roommate, Mark): You are clean people, you just never dust. But you have cute hair.
        Mark: Thank you.
        Kyan: Do you exfoliate?
        Thom: Kyan is that a pickup line? (in a sexy voice) "Do you exfoliate?"

        Carson: So many famous people threw up here in the '70s.
        Studio 54 (now a theatre) was a legendary New York club in the '70s, famous for wild hedonism and frequented by celebrities.
