When Netflix brought back Queer Eye in 2018, the heartwarming reality series was a huge hit once again. Most shows that are part of that genre wouldn't be described as sweet or compassionate or wonderful, but this show definitely can be. The Fab Five gives someone a makeover in each episode, and the results are so endearing that it's impossible not to tear up.
Since the show is so popular, there are tons of awesome memes that focus on funny quotes or the unique personality traits of each cast member. Here are 10 of the best Queer Eye memes.
10 Jonathan Is Super Wise
Jonathan Van Ness is Queer Eye's grooming expert, and he has so many words of wisdom throughout the show. While he's giving someone a physical makeover in each episode and helping them get a new hairstyle and teaching them which products to use, he's really teaching them how to love themselves.
This meme is the perfect example of something wise that Jonathan has said about self-care and taking moments out of each day to groom yourself.
9 Time For Food
This funny, awesome meme is from the season one episode "Saving Sasquatch" where the Fab Five give Neal a makeover. He's a cool guy who actually loves to cook, but he just hasn't been into it lately, so he's the perfect person to get inspired by Antoni Porowski to spend time in the kitchen again.
Everyone can relate to this Queer Eye meme. Who hasn't gone to a restaurant super hungry, ordered right away, and just sat there waiting for food that never seemed to get there? And then, once the food gets there, you're basically grunting just like Antoni and Neal.
8 That's A Lot Of Eggs
This meme is based on a quote from the second season, and it brings up one of the best parts of Queer Eye: the hilarious statements that The Fab Five say on camera.
While of course this is a makeover show, it's also a series that focuses on five cast members who get along really well and have a lot of fun together. It's great to watch the behind-the-scenes moments, like when Jonathan talks about making an omelet with way too many eggs.
7 We Love This
Sometimes a meme comes along that is so incredibly true that fans can't even believe it, and that's totally the case with this Queer Eye meme. Have truer words ever been spoken about each member of The Fab Five?
This is definitely what each of them is really thinking when giving someone advice in each episode. Antoni's statement is particularly great. So many of us love coffee and drink a ton of it (perhaps too much)... but do we really know how to cook and nourish ourselves?
6 Guac Is The Best
Is there anything better than some chips and guac? What about basking in the glory and satisfaction of knowing that you made your own guacamole?
That's what Antoni is trying to help Tom achieve in the first episode, and that's why this meme is so awesome. Not everyone on the Internet loves this guac recipe, as Antoni uses Greek yogurt, but let's ignore that and focus on the fact that this dip is always going to be a delicious idea. The food expert wants Tom to be able to make a nice meal (guac included) for the love his life, Abby, aka the one who got away. It works and they reconnect... although, tragically, Tom said in early September 2019 that he and Abby broke up.
5 Try Not To Cry
Queer Eye is one of those shows that people definitely hear about before they start watching. Maybe a friend, family member or coworker is constantly bringing it up, saying that everyone absolutely has to see it.
They talk about getting super emotional while watching, and you think, "Yeah, sure. I'm not really a crier, though, so that probably won't happen to me." Well, just try not to cry while watching this show. Chances are, you're going to be bawling your eyes through every episode, at least a few times.
Okay, we know this isn't really what happened, but who hasn't had the exact same thought while watching a makeover show?
Of course, the fact that people often look so different means that The Fab Five are so great at their jobs. They know exactly what each person needs in order to look and feel their best, and they always deliver.
3 Make An Effort
Queer Eye's fashion expert is Tan France, and he has some really amazing insights into the subject, like in these quotes that someone turned into a perfect meme.
Tan is exactly right: wanting to wear nice clothing and look good is definitely important, and it does have a huge impact on your level of success. Let's remember this meme when we need some daily inspiration and motivation.
2 This Meme Sums Up The Show
Even if you just watch one episode of Queer Eye on Netflix, you can see that this meme sums the show up completely.
The points about Antoni and Jonathan are particularly good. Based on the guac scene, it really does seem like Antoni wants to teach people to make dip (but, hey, dip-making is an important skill to have), and Jonathan wants more people to wash their face.
1 Bathroom Woes
Jonathan says really funny things in every single episode of Queer Eye, so there could be tons and tons of memes featuring his best quotes. This one is particularly amazing since it's one of the most spot-on things that he's said.
This meme is also based on the season one episode about Neal. We love that Jonathan didn't simply say that the bathroom is dirty or gross or anything along those lines. He goes one step further and makes a really smart analogy. We're always here for Jonathan and Queer Eye in general, and we can't wait for more great episodes.
