Watch Carson Nation
- 1 Season
Carson Nation was a reality television show that ran on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) from June 2011 to August 2011. The show starred Carson Kressley, a fashion expert and former Queer Eye for the Straight Guy star, as he traveled around the United States helping small towns with makeovers in various areas, such as fashion, beauty, and community services.
The premise of the show was to take small towns that were struggling and make them better. The show was divided into six episodes, and each episode featured a different small town. Kressley would arrive in the town and meet with the locals to learn about the history and culture of the town.
In each episode, Kressley would then choose someone from the town who needed a makeover. This could be a person who needed a fashion overhaul or someone who needed help with their personal life. Kressley, with the help of professionals, would provide this person with a makeover, which was then revealed at a public event.
In addition to the fashion makeovers, Kressley also helped the town with community services. This could be anything from building a playground to organizing a food drive. The show aimed to bring change and positivity to these small towns and create a sense of community.
One of the most memorable episodes of Carson Nation was when Kressley traveled to New Square, New York, a Hasidic Jewish community. Kressley worked with a woman named Esti who was struggling with her identity, torn between her traditional upbringing and her desire to express herself through fashion. Kressley helped Esti to create a look that was both fashionable and respectful of her religious beliefs, and the makeover was revealed at a large event in the town.
Throughout the show, Kressley was very hands-on and involved with the townspeople, often making house calls and spending time with the people he was helping. He was also very compassionate, listening to the struggles and woes of the people he encountered and trying to find solutions to their problems.
The show had a positive message and was well-received by audiences. Many people appreciated the efforts of Kressley and the team as they worked to make a difference in these small towns. The show also provided insights into the lives of people from different backgrounds and cultures, highlighting the diversity of America.
Carson Nation was a feel-good show that aimed to inspire people to make a difference in their communities. Kressley's dedication and passion for helping others was evident in each episode. Although the show only ran for one season, it made a lasting impact on those who watched it.
