    21 Of The Best Moments From The "Queer Eye" Season 6 Premiere

    For Season 6, Antoni, Jonathan, Karamo, Bobby, and Tan are taking over the Lone Star State.

    In case you aren't familiar with the series, the Queer Eye reboot has been one of the most uplifting shows on Netflix since it premiered in 2018.


    Antoni Porowski, Jonathan Van Ness, Karamo Brown, Bobby Berk, and Tan France, aka the Fab Five, perform lifestyle and beauty makeovers for nominees in each episode and help them gain a positive new outlook on life.

    The show's anticipated sixth season experienced significant delays in production due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but shooting in Austin, Texas was (thankfully) later resumed. The new episodes were released on Friday, December 31, and the premiere episode did not disappoint.


    This episode's nominee was Terri, a 58-year-old honky-tonk dance instructor. The Fab Five were brought in to tame her wild side while reminding Terri of the power and beauty she possesses. 

    These are some moments that made me realize how much I've missed having the Fab Five and their amazing energy in my life.


    1. When Jonathan gave his best Southern drawl to kick off the season premiere:

    The honky-tonk location owned by Terri's family is the Broken Spoke, a restaurant and dance hall in Austin.

    3. When members of the Fab Five made the best fashion statements for a season in the Lone Star State:

    Tan wears a starry button down shirt, Jonathan rocks a sequin blazer, and Antoni dons a Western top with intricate embroidery

    Between Tan's starry shirt, Jonathan's sequin blazer, and Antoni's embroidered Western top, the group was having an epic fashion moment to start the season.

    4. When Antoni gave these priceless reactions to seeing Terri for the first time:

    14. When Karamo offered support as he mediated a discussion between an emotional Terri and her daughter, Ashley:
