Watch: Queer Eye’s Fab Five guest star on Nailed It!
James R | On 02, Jul 2018
Netflix is crossing the streams this summer with two of its reality TV hits teaming up for a mini episode. Yes, Queer Eye’s Fab Five are going on Nailed It!.
Antoni Porowski (Food & Wine), Bobby Berk (Interior Design), Karamo Brown (Culture), Jonathan Van Ness (Grooming) and Tan France (Fashion) have won fans the world over by spreading their message of taste, love and self-worth, as they give make-betters to a diverse range of clueless subjects in their lifestyle series. The reboot of the show has proven a huge success, with Netflix ordering a second run of the programme at the same as its renewal of baking series Nailed It!.
The streaming giant’s answer to The Great British Bake Off, the series celebrates failure over success, as it pits amateur bakers against each other in a 30-minute TV contest: recreate a selection of stunning baked goods with no experience and see who can get the closest to not making a total mess. The winner walks away with $10,000.
Now, Netflix has doubled down on its concerted push into reality TV with a mash-up of the two, with hosts Nicole Byer and Jacques Torres welcoming the Fab Five into the Nailed It! kitchen to recreate cupcake versions of themselves. The special follows a mini-episode of Queer Eye that sees the Fab Five go to Australia, as Netflix capitalises on the love for the quintet to whip up the profile of a lesser-known original show. From Tan helping the confused Karamo with folding cake batter – “The kitchen is my sunken place…” – to Antoni being made guest judge of the whole thing, you can watch the whole bonus episode at the end of Nailed It! Season 2 – or get a taster of it below.
