Move over Meghan Markle, because Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness is the definition of royalty.
If you’re good at the Internet, then you know all about the grooming expert’s Emmy-nominated Funny or Die web series Gay of Thrones, in which he recaps that week’s episode of the popular HBO show. If not, make this Game of Thrones Ice Cream and get watching! There. Is. No. Time. To. Waste!
Not a GoT fan? Please leave your email in the comments because we have so many questions. Then perhaps you’ve listened to his Getting Curious, his podcast in which he interviews university professors, political influencers, Olympians, his Queer Eye costars, and more.
He’s also a hairstylist, yogi, and can rock a darn fine mustache. All this talent! In one perfect human being! Can you believe?
Where did this gem of a human being come from? None other than Quincy, Illinois, natch. His love of hairstyling brought him out to LA, then to NYC, and then to the screens and speakers of the masses.
We love Jonathan not only because he has more bubbly positivity than us after a bottomless mimosa brunch (yaaaaas girl you can totally rock those bangs), but also because he tells it like it is, no matter how fast he’s talking…which is fast. We’re very confused about when he has time to breathe.
But, wait, there’s more! What’s behind door number 3, Bob?
It’s…17 fabulous Jonathan Van Ness moments brought to your from the depths of the world wide web (also known as social media)! Eat your hearts out, bebes.

After my step dad passed away I gained 70 pounds in 3 months. I didn’t like how I felt or looked, it’s so important for me to look back and tell that man from 5 years ago he was lovely and gorge. I can celebrate where I am now as long as I send love to the “me’s” along the way #transformationtuesday #selfacceptance #fitness
