He's a Lady is an American reality television show that aired on TBS from October to November 2004. The premise of the show involves eleven men cross-dressing as women in order to win $250,000. The show's name is a reference to Tom Jones's 1971 hit song, "She's a Lady".

The show is hosted by Tony Frassrand, and produced by Evolution Film & Tape, Inc. and Full Circle Entertainment.

Show format[edit]

The eleven contestants were originally told that they would be competing on a show named All American Man, where they would participate in physical and mental competitions. The inevitable reality television catch is that they are actually competing with each other to act as effeminately as possible.

To accomplish this goal, the contestants are required to violate a number of taboos relating to traditional gender roles. They participate in activities traditionally regarded as exclusively "female", including:

Each week, the contestants' performances were judged by a panel of celebrity judges. The panel included Morgan Fairchild, John Salley, and Debbie Matenopoulos. The show ended with a beauty pageant, when the contestants answered the question, "What, as a lady, have you learned about being a man?"[1]

The final three contestants were Donnell (ended second runner up), Albert (ended first runner up) and David. David ultimately won the $250,000 prize.

Music[edit]

Theme Lyrics (used through episodes 2-6):

Well, he's tough and tall and tan,

He's a macho manly man.

He's very burly!

But he's taken off his jock,

puttin' on a fancy frock.

and now he's...Girly!

He's a Lady!

Oh, no, no, He's a Lady!

Now he's in shock,

'cause He's a Lady!

and it's blowing his mind.
