What have the Queer Eye season 3 heroes been up to since they taped their episodes? Here's everything you need to know about Jody, Joey, The Jones sisters, Robert, Jess, Rob, Thomas, and Tony.
Season 3 of Queer Eye dropped on Netflix this past Friday and this time The Fab 5 headed to Kansas City, Missouri to help the next batch of heroes. The men of Queer Eye were there for Jody, Joey, The Jones sisters, Robert, Jess, Rob, Thomas, and Tony. But what are the season 3 heroes up to now that the cameras have stopped rolling?
They made us laugh, they made us cry, now here is what everyone from season 3 of Queer Eye has been up to over the last few months.
What happened to Jody Castellucci after Queer Eye?
Jody Castellucci appeared in the first episode of Queer Eye season 3 "From Hunter to Huntee". The 49-year old mother and grandmother was big on camo print but got a hair and style update from Tan, Jonathan, Antoni, Bobby, and Karamo.
From the looks of it, Jody isn't a huge social media person, but she did post a tribute to the show calling it "life changing". Jody also shared a video of herself and her husband Chris harvesting paw paws in September 2018. She was back in a ponytail and camo print and looked great!
What happened to Joey Greene after Queer Eye?
Joey Greene was the camp program manager who was living in a tiny RV and working on building a stronger relationship with his son Isaac. On the show, Joey revealed that he had worked for many years to get his life together and had recently landed a great new position at his workplace.
While Joey isn't on social media, he did have plenty of nice things to say about Queer Eye in a recent interview with KCUR. He told the outlet that the Fab 5 had provided solutions that fit his lifestyle and "didn't try to put me into a house that they thought would look cool."
As for whether he has seen his own episode....?
"We're gonna try to do some different watch parties and stuff and gather with people," he told KCUR. "So that will be my first time seeing the episode."
What happened The Jones Sisters and their BBQ sauce after Queer Eye?
Everybody loved the Jones sisters aka Shorty and Little aka Mary and Deborah Jones. The business owners run a restaurant called Jones Bar-B-Q in Kansas City where they sell all kinds of delicious looking food.
In the episode, the Fab 5 gave the sisters a style update as well as some business resources that enabled them to produce hundreds of bottles of their popular BBQ sauce.
Through their Instagram account, Mary and Deborah have now updated fans on what's going on with them these days. Mary and Deborah have sold 11,000 bottles of their Jones Bar-B-Q sauce. They even ship the incredibly popular bbq sauce (but only in the US...for now!)
The pair even appeared on a recent episode of The Steve Harvey Show! Any interested parties can buy the Jones sister BBQ sauce through their website.
What happened to Robert Hitchcock after Queer Eye?
As we saw at the end this adorable episode of Queer Eye, Robert and Jamie tied the knot in the presence of their children, family, and friends.
Since then, Robert has actually gone to see two of his fellow Queer Eye season 3 heroes. He stopped by Jones Bar-B-Q and got a photo with Deborah and he even saw Jess Guilbeux perform at The Jazzhaus of Lawrence.
On his Instagram page, Robert called Queer Eye an "amazing journey".
What happened to Jess Guilbeaux after Queer Eye?
Jess Guilbeaux, (a strong, black, lesbian woman) had fans emotional af during her episode of Queer Eye.
