In a bit of a HEHE, Queer Eye‘s culture expert Karamo Brown has revealed how he helped school Harry Styles on queer dating / hookup app Grindr.
During an interview on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen the other night, the angels appeared to chat about their latest season of the wholesome series and answer some questions from fans. Some of these were about Fab 5’s Netflix special set in Japan, particularly about how they were spotted hanging around with fellow angel Harry. At the time, interior design wizard Bobby Berk posted a couple of Instagram stories of the crew and Harry doing karaoke in Tokyo.
“Harry was absolutely lovely, super sweet guy, super chill. I mean, who else can you ask for a better karaoke partner?” Bobby said.
“I can tell you this,” Karamo added. “One of the people that was with Bobby and I there taught Harry – showed him Grindr. He had never seen Grindr before and that was his first time. And it was kind of cute that this straight guy was like ‘There’s an app where you can just find a date?’ and I just thought it was really cute.”

‘Queer Eye: We’re In Japan’ will premiere later this year, and will follow the Fab 5 as they bring their message of self-care and compassion to four Japanese men and women. The four-part special will also feature a couple of local stars, including model Kiko Mizuhara who has been romantically linked to Styles in the past. Back in February, there were a slew of headlines going around about the “rumoured couple.”
“The newest addition to the Fab5 crew, for our Japan episodes… the loveliest @i_am_kiko,” Tan Insta’d during filming. “Just wait until you get to know her. You are going to FALL. IN. LOVE!”
Meanwhile, Harry just appeared in Gucci’s latest ad for its new gender-neutral fragrance Gucci Mémoire d’une Odeur.
