The Queer Eye season 7 premiere on Netflix is reigniting interest in the Fab Five, and it’s time to discuss the current ages of cast members Tan France, Antoni Porowski, Jonathan Van Ness, Bobby Berk, and Karamo Brown. Queer Eye for the Straight Guy premiered in July 2003. On the Emmy-winning show, five gay men helped straight men by giving them makeovers, along with advice about everything from home décor to diet. Back then, Ted Allen, Carson Kressley, Kyan Douglas, Thom Filicia, and Jai Rodriguez were members of the Fab Five. The show retired in 2007, but made a comeback with a new and diverse cast in 2018.
Similar to the original Fab Five from Queer Eye, the new cast also revamped wardrobes, redecorated homes, and offered advice on grooming, lifestyle, food, and wine. The show was set in Atlanta, and the Fab Five met everyday heroes who were nominated by their friends and family. Their nearest and dearest thought they were in need of transformations. The Queer Eye Fab Five includes Tan, who covers personal style, and Antoni, who’s the foodie. Jonathan’s in charge of grooming, while Bobby redesigns home interiors. Karamo is the life coach of the show, who covers all things culture-related.
