What We Know About Getting Curious With Jonathan Van Ness

It's no secret that Netflix's show "Queer Eye" is a hit. The show is a reboot of an early 2000s series called "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy," a monumental show that one several awards, including an Emmy (via NBC). The show came back to fans' tv screens with a new fab five and it was met with great appreciation.


The new fab five include Jonathan Van Ness, Tan France, Karamo Brown, Bobby Berk, and Antoni Porowski, all of whom have become household names (via Today). However, few have made a bigger splash with fans than Van Ness.

Van Ness quickly became a fan favorite, finding his own fame on magazine covers and winning solo awards (via Showbiz CheatSheet). While he may have found the fame complicated, he has continued to blossom outside of the "Queer Eye" show.

Now, Van Ness is opening up about a new solo show and a book in the works based on their podcast.
