Everyone Is LOSING IT Over This Guy’s Style Icon On Queer Eye

You will never guess who it is...
Queer Eye Season 2 is here and it's already all kinds of iconic. Not only does the new series feature all of the Fab Five back at it being their amazing selves (we need Jonathan, Tan, Karamo, Bobby and Antoni in our lives) but it also sees them help a diverse roster of amazing people spruce up their lives a little bit. From cancer survivor Tammye to transgender man Skyler, there's a whole cast of new heroes to fall in love with.
One of the standout participants this season though is William in A Decent Proposal. William is a Walmart employee and the episode sees the Fab Five help him transform and pluck up the courage to propose to his longterm girlfriend Shannan. The two of them met in a managers' training program at Walmart and have been smitten ever since. It's too cute for words.
The entire episode is nothing short of adorable but there's one moment that has been catching everyone's attention. When helping William update his wardrobe, Queer Eye's fashion guru Tan asks him who his style icon is and William's answer is wild. The reality TV star reveals that it's none other than Frasier Crane from the beloved 1993-2004 sitcom Frasier.
To put things in perspective, Frasier is not what comes to most people's minds when they think of style. His array of brown suits are not known for how fashionable they are. Tan's immediate response is: "I can't. We can't help him". He is joking, of course, but the look of horror on his face is one of the standout moments of the season.
Unsurprisingly, the internet is obsessed with it.
Some people are literally 'dying' it's that funny.
I mean let's be real. We are too.
Others are joking that it shocked Tan so much that it sent him into another dimension.
Favorite part about the new queer eye so far is when the dude told tan that his fashion role model was fraiser crane and tan sunk into the shadow realm— beautiful blooms (@cammakestweets) June 17, 2018
His face really is that perplexed. It's like he's in a trance.
A few people are happy that Queer Eye is providing us with the relatable content we need.
the ep of queer eye where they ask that guy who his style icon is and he says "fraiser crane" and they start screaming in horror is VERY relatable— when u nut in space it push u backward (@saintfannie) June 16, 2018
We've never heard someone refer to Frasier Crane as their style icon before but our reaction would be the same.
One or two viewers had to describe the moment in its entirety because it was so amazing.
This guy just said Frasier Crane is his fashion icon and Tan just retreated deeper into the clothes in the closet and screamed which is the appropriate response to someone saying their fashion icon is Fraiser Crane.— Christian Vega (@Amadeus_CV) June 17, 2018
This moment deserves poetry.
A couple of viewers tried to back up William.

We're not buying it but each to their own. Style is subjective.
Then there were those who used it as an opportunity to praise Tan.

And finally there were those who caught the auspicious moment in gif form.
We love this show so much.
