Queer Eye for the Figure Skating Guy
John Zimmerman will Guest on Popular TV Show

John Zimmerman of the United States
© USOC
United States pairs figure skating champion John Zimmerman will appear on Episode 121 of the popular U.S. television show "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy". Every week that program features five homosexual men giving fashion, grooming, food, culture, and interior design advice to a straight (non-homosexual) man. This is the first time the show has featured a world class athlete or any other celebrity.

What the Fab Five Focused On
One of John's most distinguishing feature, and one that has generated a bit of controversy in the figure skating world, Fab Five is his long and somewhat out-of-control hair. His new wife Silvia Fontana (who is also featured on the show) was afraid the "Fab Five" would do something drastic like chop it all off or even shave his head, but neither John or Silvia will reveal what actually happened on the show. The only thing they will say is that they were both nervous and apprehensive about what would happen to John's hair and that during the taping they were definitely NOT in charge.

From John Zimmerman: "As far as what really goes on behind the scenes, it is pretty much what you see on TV." John also commented that being onthe show was like "being in a hurricane". Anyone who has seen this show can easily imagine what he means by that.

Broadcast Schedule
The episode featuring John will air for the first time in the U.S. on Tuesday March 9, 2004 at 10:00 pm EST on the Bravo channel. Skaters in other time zones and countries should check their local listings for the broadcast date and time.
