With the arrival of season three from Queer Eye it is safe to say that fans are absolutely obsessed with the show. The heartwarming stories, the fashion, the transformations, it is all almost too much to record. Delivery after delivery, the series lets you want more and look for tissues.
A remake of the Bravo show Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, Queer Eye follows the Fab Five, Jonathan Van Ness, Karamo Brown, Bobby Berk, Tan France and Antoni Porowski while meeting new people, getting to know them and positively changing their lives.
Although the makeover of beauty, fashion and home is great, the most endearing part of the show is what happens internally with the subjects. In every episode the Fab Five are able to make contact with the person being transferred and find the basis of what is going on in their lives.
Without the Fab Five, the show would be nothing.
Who is the most popular Fab Five member?
Everyone has their favorite member of the Fab Five. Maybe you are a fashion lover, so you make contact with France or maybe you can’t get enough of Van Ness’s hair. Anyway, there is a member of the group that is probably a little more rooted in your heart than the others.
The most popular member of The Fab Five actually differs per state. According to a study conducted by Bespoke Surgical, Jonathan Van Ness is the most popular castmate in general.
Using data from Google Trends, Bespoke Surgical was able to determine that Van Ness was the favorite in 24 states, while Brown came top in 12 and France in nine. Porowski and Berk trained in the rankings with four and two states respectively.
If we take a step back and look at it by region, Van Ness still dominates the north, the midwest, and the west, while Brown takes over the south as the most popular Fab Five member.
Who has the biggest Instagram following?
Another measure of popularity in this digital age is to follow Instagram. Van Ness also has the most Instagram followers of every member of the Fab Five. He currently has 3.1 million followers and only follows 623 people. Although Porowski is the most popular member in just 4 states, he has the second highest follower number on Instagram. He currently has 2.9 million followers and follows only 345 people. France comes in third place just like he did in the state classification. He currently has 2.3 million followers and follows 116 people. Brown has 1.9 million followers and follows 466 people.
Unfortunately for Berk, he is in last place, not only in the number of states where he is popular, but also on Instagram. He has 1.8 million followers, which is more than 1 million less than Van Ness. He also follows more than 1,400 people, which is more than any other crew member.
Which Fab Five member is paid the most?
If the Fab Five was paid by popularity, Van Ness would make much more than the rest of the team. Fortunately for Berk, the cast was all paid the same amount for seasons one and two. The cast each paid $ 7,500 per episode for the first two seasons of the show.
