Jonathan Van Ness reveals the details of his Queer Eye casting


Jonathan Van Ness has revealed how he was cast on Netflix’s reboot of Queer Eye, and said it was quite similar to America’s Next Top Model. Van Ness made the comments on Jimmy Kimmel Live, where he explained that he heard that Netflix was planning on rebooting the show, he understood that he wanted to be a part of it. But his desire was probably not enough, he had to go through a challenge of selection that consisted of many complicated stages.“You go and you chat, and after you chat you do this little video interview thing. Then after that they narrowed it down to, I think there was like 50 of us, so 50 really talented gay men descended upon this ballroom in Glendale, California, and we basically mingled each other to death, but in a really loving way,” he shared. He also remembered that he was doing his client’s hair as he received a phone call from Netflix to hear that he was cast as a part of the Fab Five, he made his clients and fellow barbers stay quiet for a while not to let him miss any word. They did not hear anything from the other side of the line, but they saw Jonathan look like his dream was coming true. And it was.
