We have a legendary crossover. You've probably been crying through the second season of Queer Eye . So, if you need even more fab-five energy, do not be afraid, because they're appearing on another Netflix show – Nailed It !, hosted by the utterly funny Nicole Byer, a self proclaimed Queer Eye group. Can you believe ? The Queer Eye / Nailed It! Episode is a perfect crossover of two of Netflix's best original shows. Karamo Brown, Jonathan Van Ness, Bobby Berk, Tan France and Antoni Porowski Byers delight in the kitchen in Season 2's bonus mini-episode. (And guess who does not cook anything in this episode?)
If you Nailed It! Have not seen do it please. The premise is amateur (aka pretty terrible) at home bakers trying to create elaborate creations with … mixed results, which usually end in pastry disasters. Byer offers the funniest ongoing commentary and has a super cute relationship with her fellow judge, French pastry chef Jacques Torres. And although the final results of the bakers are usually hilarious, the judges are so kind and tell everyone that they are proud that they tried and they did their best. Even if their best is a lumpy goopy jumble of frosting, fondant and food coloring.
The Fab Five are ready to take on the challenge ̵
As far as the Fab Four is concerned, their skills vary in the kitchen. Tan is apparently the only one who actually cooks at home and says he loves to bake. He is very confident that he can win. Bobby says he has not "baked for decades" and, according to Antoni, Karamo has a "refined palate of Coca-Cola and Welch's gummies for breakfast". Karamo admits he is scared. Jonathan, who is always the image of optimism and self-belief, says his strategy is "simply to be present in this competition". He is very Zen. Very concentrated. Antoni calls him an unpaid sponsor of Postmates, which probably means he will soon be a paid sponsor of Postmates.
And although Antoni says he Nailed It! Kitchen is like a cook's dream, he did not get his hands dirty, instead with Byer and Torres. He does, however, pronounce "fondant" the extravagant French style.
No spoils about who does the best and the worst, but there are many meltdowns in the kitchen. Karamo, Tan, Bobby and Jonathan are experts in Queer Eye, so they have little idea what they are doing in the kitchen is so cute. They may be perfectly groomed, but they are also human. The best part is Byer's relationship with the Fab Five. They just arrive well and you think they've been friends forever. At one point, Karamo is a little overwhelmed, and Byer tells him, "Do it for the culture." She is a great motivator. Maybe that means she will join the Fab Five in the third season of Queer Eye . Here is hope.
The four bakers make some cupcake and fondant creations with mixed results, but all have a fabulous time. The winner of the Four was not that bad after all – but he has nothing of the best back in history: the Trump cake.
