If you haven’t watched Queer Eye yet, do it immediately. I was a big fan of the original show, so of course I was intrigued about the Netflix reboot.
I quickly fell in love with the new Fab Five, and was surprised by how moving each episode is. It truly is a joy to watch, from start to finish. After binge-watching the whole series, I was left with a huge smile on my face and a tear in my eye (though I’ll deny this if anyone asks).
All the guys are awesome, but Antoni (the food and wine expert) was always going to be my favourite, because…well, he’s obsessed with food.
Oh, and he’s not bad to look at either.
As well as being super sweet and a bit of a dork, he’s also the type of guy that makes you say, ‘that’s SO me!’ at least 15 times per episode. Here are just a few of the times he was relatable af.
When he showed he’s just a big ol’ romantic
Pretty much every time he saw a dog
When he was just a *tad* dramatic
When a spectacular grilled cheese left him lost for words
This is the man who declared he’s ‘never met a cheese he didn’t like’, after all…
When his face said what we were all thinking
I mean, really. Pickle juice?
When he confessed his love of a good bad smell
As my tweet below might suggest, I appreciate someone with a keen olfactory sense.
Was looking for bread in the shop, and instead of looking for signs like a normal person I SNIFFED THE AIR. Like a bloodhound. pic.twitter.com/cZMEEsOFTo

When he was just a big kid
I mean, it was a pretty cool hat.
When he really, really loved chilli
When he couldn’t quite handle AJ’s leather harness
When he was just a big kid (part 2)
Happy birthday, Antoni!
Keep being your ridiculous self.
