Identical age, totally different generations.
Queer Eye For the Straight Man O.G. solid member Jai Rodriguez completely revealed on E! Information’ Daily Pop on July 8 that he was initially “shocked” to be taught of the Queer Eye reboot, starring DP visitor co-host Bobby Berk. Regardless of Jai and Bobby each turning 40—Jai rang in his big b-day along with his Fab 5 household on the June 15 episode of E!’s Reunion Road Trip—the 2 makeover consultants signify totally different generations of Queer Eye fandom.
“Queer Eye worlds are colliding!” Bobby joked about his “uncle” Jai.
But, Jai wasn’t all the time prepared to surrender the Queer Eye reigns. “That is the true tea,” he dished. Presumably again in 2018 previous to the Netflix reboot, Jai acquired a telephone name in the course of his cabaret present rehearsals.
“‘We’re bringing Queer Eye again,’ and earlier than they might even take a breath, my Puerto Rican butt threw myself on the road and was like, ‘Oh my gosh, that is so superb as a result of actually now in my 30s, I’ve, like, a lot extra to supply…'” Jai remembered saying, earlier than he was knowledgeable of the brand new solid.
“You are already envisioning your home within the hills,” he joked. “I used to be actually in shock for a second.”
