The Fab Five is back. Netflix's rebooted Queer Eye has returned for a sophomore season, and it's exactly what we need. The world may be on fire, but at least the Queer Eye crew is making lives a little better, one episode at a time.
Bobby Berk, Karamo Brown, Antoni Porowski, Jonathan Van Ness, and Tan France are all bonafide experts in their respective fields. But who were these guys before they became Netflix famous? While you may know a thing or two about their pasts (Van Ness was on Gay Of Thrones!) sometimes seeing is believing. Thanks to Instagram, we can do a deep dive into who the Fab Five were before they united. Click through to explore the Fab Five's past Instagram lives.
