For those of you currently bingeing the fourth season of Queer Eye, we get it—the tears haven’t stopped flowing for us either. It’s just. so. sweet. What’s even sweeter is hearing all the hot goss that went on behind the scenes of the most wholesome show on the air.
During the Fab 5’s Tuesday night appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon (weekdays at 11:35 p.m. ET on CTV), Fallon put our fave cosmopolitan quintet through the ultimate friendship test and forced them to reveal some juicy BTS tidbits. Each member took turns wearing a set of noise-cancelling headphones while Fallon asked the group questions, challenging them to see if their answers matched up.
Antoni Porowski (looking like a Canadian James Dean, FYI) donned the headset first, while the rest of the five—including Jonathan Van Ness, Karamo Brown, Bobby Berk and Tan France—chatted about when Antoni laughed the hardest while filming. It didn’t require a whole lot of discussion since they almost immediately landed on the moment “Jonathan snot himself” whilst wearing a cheerleading outfit in episode one. We can just picture it!
When Fallon posed that same question to Antoni after the headphones came off, his face was priceless. He retold the same story, admitting “I actually peed myself.”
The game continued to reveal hilarious memories, like the time Tan mistook Game of Thrones‘ star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau for Viggo Mortensen to his face (LOL but we can kinda see it?), and Jonathan’s obvious tell when he’s cranky. Spoiler alert: he screams for his assistant “JULIE” in true, fabulous diva fashion.
The fête des embarrassments didn’t end there since the Fab 5’s entire interview consisted of a series of questions about their worst hair and fashion mistakes. The blunders range from Tan’s “early Justin Bieber” haircut to Karamo’s early-2000s wardrobe of “three times oversized” hip-hop-inspired fashion (and Fallon’s got the receipts). Jonathan, of course, has never made a fashion blunder in his life.
“I wanted to participate, but there’s just no bad pictures,” he deadpanned.
Karamo conclude the interview the only way the Fab 5 know how—with love and positive affirmations.
“Everyone turn to your neighbour,” he led the audience. “Say ‘Neighbour, I am loved. I am beauty. And I am worthy.'”
YAS. Writing this on a series of sticky-notes for the bathroom mirror.
