Let's face it: Reality television has exalted some of the worst people on the planet and glorified some of the most heinously inappropriate behavior ever to be called entertainment (here's an excellent indictment). It has led many of us to seriously consider turning our backs on the 21st century and returning to life in caves, because that would be a more dignified existence than any that would allow such shameless, bloodthirsty jackals as the Kardashians or the Real Housewives of Wherever to thrive.

But there is one shining, impeccably dressed, refined, intelligent, gracious, thoughtful, well-mannered, sophisticated, utterly classy exception to all of this awfulness, and his name is Tim Gunn.

Surely you have watched "Project Runway," the fashion competition show for which Gunn serves as mentor to aspiring designers. He's the best thing about the show. He's supportive, but appropriately critical when called for. He always rises above any petty bickering or bitchiness. He's the father figure who gives the contestants the grounding they need to "make it work" (sorry, couldn't help it).

In addition to the show, he is the chief creative officer at Liz Claiborne. And if Gunn's installment of the "It Gets Better" series doesn't make you well up, you have no soul.
