The updated Fab 5 – Tan France, Bobby Berk, Jonathon Van Ness, Karamo Brown and Antoni Porowski have revamped the show’s outlook, and have recently shared how they feel about the acceptance and love they have received from its viewers. With its upcoming third season around the corner, the iconic group is ready to share more heartwarming transformations with its audience.

On how they feel about the love and support they have received from their viewers worldwide, Karamo Brown who is the Queer Eye expert on culture, only had kind words to lend to his fans. He said, “I think it’s beautiful.”

“This is a very diverse cast of gay men, and we’re living in a time where we’re feeling very polarized, like, people are not getting along,” he added.

He also added, “And so to have sometimes people you would assume would be judging us say, ‘We love you, we support you and we’re so happy that you’re on TV,’ is probably one of the best feelings for us. But it also gives us all hope for the country that we live in—and for the world.”

His co-star, Tanweer Wasim, who is better known as “Tan” is responsible for fixing the wardrobe malfunctions of the individuals they cater to on the show. Tan feels overwhelmed at the attention garnered by the show, and is deeply grateful for the love shown by people for the Fab 5.

He said, “I was going to add, the fact that we’ve been so welcomed by the global audience is what I’m shocked by. I love that we’re accepted by the American audience, but the global audience was a surprise to me, so we’re super grateful for that.”

Another fabulous member of the incredible Fab 5, Antoni Porowski, has managed to gain sheer appreciation for his expertise in cooking. He has not only taught the individuals on the show how to take care of their diet, but also ways to revive old family traditions through the art of cooking.

Antoni’s favorite part about the revamped show is how it has managed to bring together people, all over the world, to join in on the joys of rediscovering resting personality traits.

On how he feels about the collaborative effort put on display for the world, Antoni said, “It brings people together in the purest way, and that will never get old.”

While the last two seasons of Queer Eye were centered in and around Atlanta, the Fab 5 is all set to expand their route to the streets and places in Kansas City, Missouri area. The Fab 5 expert in Design, Bobby Berk, assured the fans of the show that the essence of Queer Eye will remain unchanged even as the show progresses into its third season.

He said, “Season one and two we were like freshman.”

“We were new to the whole thing. We were like, ‘OK, we’re finding our footing.’ And now we’re going into sophomore year…so we are very confident of who we are and we are bringing our expertise out in a new way. So, what I would say has changed is us,” he added.
