At this point, I can't imagine a world without Jonathan Van Ness, Bobby Berk, Tan France, Antoni Porowski, and Karamo Brown joined together in unity, making the world a better place one crying jag at a time. The Fab Five of Netflix's Queer Eye reboot are an essential addition to today's pop culture landscape, bringing only sweetness and positivity to a world that's in grave need of it.
I know it's uncomfortable to dwell on, but there was a time before Queer Eye. A not-so-distant time. Just a year ago, the members of the Fab Five were free agents, pursuing their dreams independently. After an extremely wide-reaching casting process, Queer Eye's producers selected these five individuals and sent them flying to stardom.
What did they do before that fateful casting? Where were their paths taking them? Here are the origin stories of the Fab Five 2.0.

I’m Canadian, but that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate a #summer American staple like a good burger 🍔! Sometimes I like to go for something classic: ground beef, cheddar cheese, pickles, lettuce, and an heirloom tomato #yum. But sometimes, I like to mix it up with some new flavor combos and @wholefoods makes it so easy to build really fun and interesting burgers with their pre-seasoned burger blends; try the Steakhouse Burger with a homemade date and cream cheese spread, the Peppercorn Crusted Burger topped with portobello, gouda and caramelized onions or the Cheddar Mushroom Burger with grilled pineapple, Gochujang mayo, cilantro and crunchy onion.

Decorating a new space can be daunting...and when you buy a new home that is a whole lot of space! Thankfully, if you are a @Chase #ad Sapphire, Freedom or United cardmember you can get up to 75,000 points when you purchase a home with them. The only question now is which room to decorate first....my advice to new homeowners is to start with your large pieces (bed, couch, etc.) in neutral colors and let your style shine in the details! #happydecorating #sponsored
