‘Queer Eye’ Casts Then & Now By: Elissa Anderson 1 of 6 ‘Queer Eye’ Casts Then And Now REX/Shutterstock Before there was Jonathan, Karamo, Tan, Bobby, and Antoni there was Carson, Ted, Jai, Kyan and Thom! The original cast of ‘Queer Eye’ undoubtedly paved the way for the new stars to take the reins and try something new! Without the original stars, so much of the structure and heart of the show would have been missing; they’ve totally left their mark on the pop culture mainstay, and have wholly influenced their new counterparts on a series that has grown more and more inclusive with each new season! Carson, Ted, Jai, Kyan, and Thom were the OG Fab Five when the series hit Bravo in 2003. For a number of years they gave makeovers and imparted words of wisdom to the men that would guest star on their show, in need of a haircut, wardrobe, home, culinary, and self-esteem renovation. Years later, the series was revived on Netflix and stars Tan, Karamo, Antoni, Bobby, and Jonathan have given the series an energy, look and meaning all their own, becoming wonderful ambassadors for the streaming platform while changing the lives of their heroes one step at a time!
