Queer Eye Comes to Austin
The Fab Five posted a photo in front of the El Arroyo sign saying they’re in Texas to film their hit show
“Queer Eye” is here!
The cast of the hit Netflix show posted a photo in front of Austin’s famous El Arroyo sign on Wednesday, announcing they’re in Texas to film season 6.
“Grab a Texas-sized box of tissues y’all because the Fab 5 just arrived in the Lone Star State to film Queer Eye Season 6!” the Twitter post says, complete with a cowboy and cactus emoji.
The Queer Eye stars – food wine extraordinaire Antoni Porowski, fashion extraordinaire Tan France, culture and lifestyle extraordinaire Karamo Brown, design extraordinaire Bobby Berk and grooming extraordinaire Jonathan Van Ness – are all in the photo, posing, smiling and looking fabulous. The guys are known as the Fab 5. On Instagram, they each posed separately with a personalized message on the sign and expressed appreciation to El Arroyo. “Thank you for helping us with our big announcement,” a comment on the sign’s feed says.
On the show, which is a reboot of a Bravo show called “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy,” the guys step in to change the lives of deserving people with makeovers, home renovations, cooking tips, life coaching and all-around fabulousness. Tissues are, in fact, usually good to have around when watching the show.
The guys added some good news for fans in their post: “oh and P.S. Queer Eye Season 5 is coming real soon.”
You can almost detect a Texas accent. Welcome, guys.
