QUEER EYE spelling question (a GQ really):

How do you spell the word Carson uses that means rolling up the sleeves or fingering the hair into place? It sounds something like “Zyuge”.

Thanks
J

I’d say zhuzh.

According to Carson on the QE message board:

Tjuzs, Tjuzing, Tjuzed.

I would spell it juge but that’s 'cause I’m all about French phonetics this semester. I guess the vowel sound in juge is too rounded. But the /j/ sound is much closer than the /dj/ that english uses.
