Netflix released a special online-only mini-episode of Queer Eye featuring one of their own.
John Campbell manages the IT department at Netflix (aka the NERDS team), and was the perfect candidate for a bit of polishing. So Antoni, Bobby, Jonathan, Karamo, and Tan were called in to give Campbell a re-do.
It’s amazing what can happen in the space of seven minutes. Anyone ready for Season Two?
Jonathan Van Ness, the show’s hair guy, spoke to Vulture recently on the show’s continuing relevance:
“Something I realized today was — and everyone really responded to this joke the first time I busted it out — that when you have Republican administrations in power, we need to have Queer Eye on the air. But even though that’s a joke, it’s serious. I do feel like LGBTQIA things in the United States are not going in the direction that they were in the last eight years. Coming from a town of 30,000 people on the Mississippi River, having Queer Eye in 2003 through 2007 when I was in high school was really important. I looked up to Kyan a lot. I hope someone will look up to me. That is a crazy feeling, but I think it’s a good time, because there needs to be queer visibility on TV.”
