How to Nominate Someone for ‘Queer Eye’
Do you know someone who is a hero in your community? Or do you know someone who is in dire need of a Jonathan Van Ness haircut? You’re not alone — since its premiere, fans have been wondering how to nominate friends, family members, and local heroes for Netflix’s original series. Here’s what we know about Queer Eye, their nomination process, and the show’s upcoming season.
Friends and family members nominate local heroes for Netflix’s ‘Queer Eye’
Since its premiere on Netflix, Queer Eye became a cultural phenomenon, grabbing a few Emmy Award-wins and a handful of nominations from this year’s Emmy Award ceremony. Fans fell in love with the Fab Five, comprised of experts Karamo Brown, Bobby Berk, Jonathan Van Ness, Antoni Porowski, and Tan France. Now, some are wondering how they can get a nomination for a makeover on the reality series.
“Someone nominate me for Queer Eye because I’m at such a low point in my life that only Tan France’s cold truth and Jonathan Van Ness’ soft touch can save me,” said one Twitter user. Thanks to a few Reddit sleuths, fans discovered how they could nominate people for this uplifting television show.
So, how do I nominate someone for ‘Queer Eye’?
If you have a dream of eating guacamole with Antoni, walking into a new bedroom designed by Bobby, and sharing secrets with Karamo, you’re not alone. There are ways of making this dream a reality. Fans can submit their nominations of friends, family members, and local heroes to the Fab Five. How, exactly, do you nominate someone for Queer Eye?
According to Seventeen Magazine, “unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be a form to fill out online. If they stick with the email they used to cast the most recent season, then sending a message to firstname.lastname@example.org seems to be your best bet.” When submitting a nomination to the email address, nominators are asked to include the nominee’s name, along with their story and photographs.
Casting calls for the upcoming season, season five, were reportedly held in April, according to a flyer that fans shared on Reddit. Production began for the new episodes on June 24.
What city is the Fab Five from ‘Queer Eye’ going to next?
If you’re living in Philly, you’re in luck. The upcoming season of Netflix’s original series is headed to the City of Brotherly love. Production has already begun on the fifth season, but it doesn’t hurt to nominate a candidate, anyway.
In the past, the Queer Eye crew made stops in neighborhoods surrounding Atlanta, Georgia and Kansas City, Missouri. For a special episode, the Fab Five traveled overseas to spread their message of self-love to Japan. This episode, Queer Eye: We’re In Japan, premieres later this year, proving the sky is the limit for these experts.
