If you're like us, you cried your way through season 3 of Queer Eye within hours of its release on Netflix. Which means you're probably looking for something else to fill that Fab Five-shaped hole in your life. We have a feeling it'll be a while before we get any additional episodes, so here are nine suggestions for shows to keep you busy until season 4. (Photos via CBS + VH1 + Fox + HGTV)
Queer Eye (for the Straight Guy): We're partial to the Netflix reboot, but the current Fab Five wouldn't exist without their early aughts predecessors, Jai Rodriguez, Kyan Douglas, Ted Allen, Thom Filicia, and Carson Kressley. If you've never seen the original series, which ran from 2003 to 2007, it's worth a watch.

What Not to Wear: If your favorite parts of Queer Eye are the style and grooming makeovers, do yourself a favor and track down some old episodes of What Not to Wear. From 2003 to 2013, fashion experts Stacy London and Clinton Kelly, along with a dream team of hairstylists and makeup artists, helped sartorially challenged nominees transform their outward appearance — which often had the added benefit of boosting their inner confidence, too.

MasterChef: Junior: Cooking competitions can be cutthroat, but this spinoff of Gordon Ramsay's MasterChef, which itself is a spinoff of a British TV show, will expand your heart and your appetite. Ramsay, whose other shows require constant bleeps to cover his cursing, is kinder and more even-tempered around the junior contestants, and the contestants themselves are so encouraging and supportive of each other that you almost forget it's a competition. Which is not to say they don't bring it in the kitchen — these kids are seriously talented chefs.

Undercover Boss: The premise of Undercover Boss is pretty simple: A high-level manager or corporate exec goes — you guessed it — undercover as a new, low-level employee within their company. In doing so, the boss sees how things really work and gets to know people without the complication of lopsided power dynamics. It might not sound like a tearjerker, but it's actually an incredibly heartwarming look at the unsung heroes of the workforce and a reminder to bosses everywhere that compassion is one of the greatest assets we have.

Fixer Upper: If you love Bobby Berk's home makeovers and interior design tips, Fixer Upper will knock you out of your reupholstered seat. HGTV hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines can transform even the most drab spaces into dream homes, and they did exactly that for five seasons. The only drawback: They're not filming any new episodes, so once you finish season 5, you'll need another show to fill the home-reno void in your heart.

America's Next Top Model: There's more to this long-running reality series than looking good in photos or on the runway. The challenges on ANTM force contestants to dig deep, face their fears, and embrace their flaws — just like on Queer Eye.

RuPaul's Drag Race: The hair and makeup transformations on this show are at a level you've never witnessed before. And did we mention the outfits? As Queer Eye fan favorite Jonathan Van Ness would say, "Can you believe?!" From brows to lips, hair to hips, these queens are masters of creating jaw-droppingly gorgeous looks.

Tim Gunn's Guide to Style: Before Tan France, our go-to style guru was Project Runway icon Tim Gunn. His other show, which lasted two seasons on Bravo, offered makeovers to guests who agreed to ditch their old duds and follow a set of new style rules laid out for them by Gunn. Make it work, people!

Nailed It: For those who love Antoni Porowski's delicious-looking eats and attempts to share his talents with less-experienced home chefs, Nailed It is a tasty treat. The new Netflix hit, hosted by Nicole Byer and Jacques Torres, sees amateur bakers attempt to re-create edible masterpieces for the chance to win a whopping $10,000. The catch? These cooks have a terrible track record when it comes to their culinary creations. (Same.)
