It's reality TV at its least cynical—a show that finds time to address issues like homophobia, police violence, and religious tension between all the life-affirming high fives—and it's great.

One of the 'Fab Five'—and the only Brit in the crew—is stylist Tan France, whose role it is to make a beeline for each guy's wardrobe, throw out the boot cut jeans and frayed plaid before gently educating him in the benefits of wearing nice shoes and clothes that actually fit properly.
