As Queer Eye Season 2 graced our television screens, we inevitably became even more obsessed with the Fab Five. Though what we didn't anticipate is that throughout season 2, we also became quite emotionally invested in the other stars of the show: the make-over candidates (or heroes, as they are affectionally referred to in the series).
From Mama Tammye and Skyler to William and Jason, Season 2 introduced us to so many wonderful individuals, who we now genuinely care about and what to see succeed in every aspect of life.
So, where are all these special people now? Here are a few updates on all your favourites from Season 2 of Queer Eye.
The crossover double date of the decade
Before we get to the individual lives of the season two contestants, it's important you know that season one faves Tom and Abby, and season two faves William and Shannan, went on a DOUBLE DATE.
The adorable married couples tucked into some enchiladas (is that a redneck margarita we see, Tom?) and probably traded Jonathan Van Ness fan stories. We imagine.
Scroll down for more on William and Shannan.
Mama Tammye was Queer Eye's first female make-over candidate, and she did not disappoint. As a resident of the small town of Gay, Georgia, Mama Tammye welcomed the Fab Five into her home with open arms.
By all accounts it seems Miss Tammye is still living her best life and attending church as much as possible. In a recent interview with the Huffington Post, Tammye explained how the Fab Five's visit changed her life, "I told the guys when I first met them that my prayer for the week was that there would be growth all the way around. And you know what? That was achieved. It was one of those pivotal times in life that you go, 'Oh, that's why I'm here.'"
Thankfully, Tammye is also still dishing out pearls of wisdom. On learning acceptance she told the publication, "When God gave me the revelation not to judge and just to love, I tell them there is more to your child ― and everybody ― than what they do in the bedroom. Your child is someone you would die for. That relationship right there mirrors God's love more than anything."
And by way of sharing an update about her son Miles, Tammye explained that the lessons the Fab Five instilled in him are still evident every day. "Let me tell you, thanks to the Fab 5 working with him and just the love and acceptance, oh, my God. It shows on the day to day, the way he grooms himself. He is so proud of his room. He was just kind of floundering before, and since then he has so much confidence."
When we were first introduced to Skyler, a transgender man, he was only six weeks out from his top surgery and still physically recovering.
Today, Skyler is more than one year out from surgery and is still proudly sharing his journey on social media. In a recent post, Skyler also revealed that he has gone back to university and plans to graduate in July.
William will be remembered as the man who claimed Frasier Crane was his style icon. During his episode of Queer Eye, the men helped William prepare to propose to his beautiful girlfriend Shannan.
Since the show aired William and Shannan tied the knot, marrying on June 16 (exactly one year to the day since his proposal).
Karamo Brown shared an update on the couple via Vanity Fair, explaining "We all know they got married. They're very much in love."
He explained, "What I love about their love story is that his focus was to be an actor, but now it's sort of shifted. He's realised so many people were inspired by his love that he wants to continue to use his 'I Shannan You' platform to help and inspire people that you can find love in any place."
Jason—also known as the Burning Man festival obsessed Atlanta handyman—has one of the show's most adorable updates to date. Throughout his episode, Jason was preparing to move from Atlanta to Reno, though after his episode ended we learned that he decided against the move, as he had fallen in love with his (formerly platonic) best friend Beth.
Beth and Jason are still happily together and sharing sweet updates about her adoration for one another on social media. Cute!
When we first met Sean, he was a young musician who had been homeschool by his godmother meaning he had very few friends his own age. With the help of the Fab Five, Sean was able to build up his confidence before attending his first year of college.
In the time since the show, Sean looks to still be working on his music and adjusting to college life just fine. He recently uploaded a photo to his Instagram page of his school formal and seems to have made lots of new friends.
The men of Queer Eye absolutely loved the time they spent with father of two, Leo. The bartender needed some help adjusting to fatherhood and feeling confident in his abilities to spend time with other parents.
It seems Leo has been laying low since his time on the show, as he does not appear to be on any form of social media. Nevertheless, we can only image that he's still doting on his wife and children, whilst managing to look a little more put together.
Twenty-four-year old Arian had previously skated through life by telling white lies about his accomplishments, even telling his parents he had graduated from university when in fact he had not. As to be expected, the Fab Five immediately called Arian out on his lies and helped him own up to his truth.
Since the show, Karamo explained, via Vanity Fair, that Arian has managed graduate from university and has found a job. "I've been in contact with him and he finally graduated and has a job. I'm so proud of him," he explained. "He jokes that he still has some gray area that he lives in, but overall he is doing extremely well."
In the last episode of the season, we meet Ted Terry, the mayor of Clarkston, Georgia. The men help Ted by updating his "10-year-old wardrobe" and shaving off his beard.
Evidently, it seems his makeover worked wonders for his career, as Ted has since been reelected. He took to his public Facebook page to thank his town for voting, writing "Honored to serve for another 4 years. 59% victory. Thank you Clarkston!"
