Philadelphia Flyers mascot Gritty got himself a makeover thanks to the Queer Eye team, although they didn't change too much of the fan favorite's look:

The Netflix show usually features makeovers for everyday people, including grooming, fashion and home changes.

The Fab Five didn't see much of an opportunity to change Gritty, appreciating his eyebrows for what they were, letting him wear his same Flyers jersey (after a few wardrobe changes) and allowing him to eat a cheesesteak for every meal.

He was at least able to get a new locker room set up and had a heart-to-heart conversation with the one who nominated him for the show: the Phillie Phanatic.

It seems Gritty has been keeping himself busy as he awaits the restart of the 2019-20 NHL season.
