5 Times Jonathan Van Ness Had Your Back

         Last summer, I joined the club and became completely attached to the Netflix original series Queer Eye, a new spin on the old series. The show is about five gay guys who make over a straight guy (with an exception to Mama Tammye) by remodeling their house, freshening up their hair, teaching them new recipes, buying them a new wardrobe, and getting a free therapy sesh from Karamo. Basically, it’s pretty much like Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, but 1000 times better and more emotional. In honor of the new season being released this past Friday, I wanted to appreciate and share the best moments of Jonathan Van Ness (aka JVN <3), the queen of hair and style!!

1. Season 2, Episode 6: “Big Little Lies”

“You are strong, you’re a Kelly Clarkson song, you’ve got this.”

To all the folks drowning in midterms, or just your average day of school work…no worries. You got this, and Spring Break is just right around the corner! I mean…what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, you Miss Independent. ;-)

2. Season 1, Episode 1: “You Can’t Fix Ugly”

“She’s a liar.”

All I want is for JVN to look through my makeup and hair products and tell me what I should and should not use because the ingredients include the same chemicals they use in CAR ENGINES. Here we go again, JVN always lookin’ out for his clients!

3. Season 1, Episode 2: “Saving Sasquatch”

“Neal’s bathroom reminds me a lot of a skin tag. It’s not hurting anything, but it doesn’t look great.”

He’s brutally honest and just wants the best for his #hennies, which I think we all can appreciate.

4. Season 1, Episode 4: “To Gay or Not Too Gay”

“It wasn’t an option for me to be closeted or to keep it to myself; sky is blue, grass is green, can’t fight it.”

While helping one of their clients “come out” to his stepmother, JVN shares his coming out experience, and he completely embraces his inner queen, as he should. He emphasizes the importance of being yourself and not hiding the truth and being something you’re not. #YasHenny <3

5. Season 2, Episode 2: “A Decent Proposal”

“Great, some lice shampoo.”

“Didn’t you just use his comb?”

“I did!” *stares into camera like Jim Halpert from The Office*

Most importantly, Jonathan tries to look out for himself. It’s okay, we got you.
