From the first ever episode of the series, “You Can’t Fix Ugly,” Tom was our first, unforgettable hero.

You can follow Tom on Twitter, joining his current 36,000 followers.

In one Twitter post, he wrote: “I just watched my episode for about the 20th time. I cry like a baby ever time I watch it. Just to let the world know, Abby and I are no longer together. She will always be the love of my life. I will always love her more than anything!!!!!!!”

However, months after the episode aired, Tom and Abby reunited and got remarried.

Tom’s daughter, who nominated him to be on the show, Katie Phelps, is also on Twitter.

Season 1, episode 2: Queer Eye Hero Neal Reddy

We met Neal on the episode “Saving Sasquatch,” a name that credits his extraordinary beard and head of hair. 

In the episode, you see his extreme makeover and a year later, he often takes to his Instagram account to remind everyone what it means to him.

I am crying tears of joy as I write this. I can’t believe it’s only been a year since @queereye aired and changed my life forever. I still can’t believe how lucky I am. To the Fab Five…To everyone who worked on the show… To the producers … To @netflix … To everyone who watched and supported… I am forever in your debt. It’s been a crazy, awesome and tough year of introspection and self improvement and it all started because of the show. And if you had told me a year ago that a reality show would be the reason I would be able to find so much more joy and gratitude in everyday life, I would have laughed in your face. Still can’t believe any of it. Still can t believe I get to call people like @tanfrance , @bobbyberk , @jvn , @karamo and @antoni genuine amigos. Still can’t believe how real this reality show was for me. Sending nothing but love to Tan, Jonathan, Bobby, Antoni, Karamo, @jroselane , @rachellemendeztv , @acapricious , @brojordan , @thebenfort, anyone else I missed and everyone that has supported. All of you have made this past year the greatest of my life. Here’s to this next one topping that. #queereye #queereyenetflix #yasqueen #netflix #netflixandchill #love #gratitude #wedidit #livingmybestlife

Season 1, episode 3: Queer Eye Hero Cory Waldrop

From the first season’s third episode “Dega Don’t,” Cory Waldrop was transformed and had his life changed.

Cory, a former Marine, was nominated to be on Queer Eye by his best pal, Henry.

His most used social media platform is Instagram where you can follow him to see how he has kept up with the Fab Five’s advice.

His bio reads: “Husband,Dad, Business Owner, and NASCAR and college football enthusiast. Go Dawgs! (Also Season 1 Episode 3 QueerEye hero)”

Season 1, episode 4: Queer Eye Hero Anthony “AJ” Brown

AJ was the hero of the episode entitled, “To Gay Or Not Too Gay.”

Unfortunately, this star is a rare kind in that he does not use social media.

However, Queer Eye‘s Twitter shared a fabulous update about AJ after the episode aired.

They shared the news that he and Andre got engaged, and fans melted online.

Season 1, episode 5: Queer Eye Hero Bobby Camp

You’ll remember Bobby from the episode “Camp Rules.”

Sadly (for us), the Christian father of six is also not easy to find online.

However, one of the Fab Five, Jonathan Van Ness shared a sweet update on Bobby and his wife Vera.

“Vera literally DMed me the day before yesterday and they moved to a different house with three bedrooms,” he told BuzzFeed. “[The kids] are still using their kits and caboodles, which is great.”

Season 1, episode 6: Queer Eye Hero Remington Porter

Remy, the star of  “The Renaissance of Remington,” joined the show with this beaming smile.

Leo was the star of the episode “Unleash The Sexy Beast” after his wife nominated him for being an utter slob.

The family man doesn’t seem to be on social media but we can only assume that Leo is doing well since the show gave him some confidence and style.

Season 2, episode 4: Queer Eye Hero Jason Vodersing

Jason, from the episode “The Handyman Can,” is another Queer Eye contestant that appears absent from social media.

The singleton had been nominated on the show by his best friend Beth.

However, fans were so happy when the platonic friendship transformed into romance, just as Jason transformed during the episode.

And, to fans’ delight, Beth and Jason are still together, according to Digital Spy.

Season 2, episode 5: Queer Eye Hero Skyler

Queer Eye’s first trans hero Skyler is the star of the episode “Sky’s the Limit.”

It follows Skyler as he recovers from undergoing transition-related ‘top’ surgery and liposuction, giving him the male figure he has always wanted.

Today marks 9 weeks postop for me. Still dealing with the complications of internal bleeding and slow moving organs. On the bright side all of my organs are at least active again. 🙌🏼🙌🏼 My healing process has not been easy. In fact the first several weeks I was in so much pain and starved from my organs shutting down I hardly remember a solid 3 weeks of my life. These are 2 #throwbacks from my healing process. I didn’t get too many pictures the first several weeks because of how sick and out of it I was. The photo on the right is my first postop selfie taken 9 days after my surgery when I was admitted to the hospital and finally stabilized. The photo on the left was taken a week later after I was discharged from the hospital, still swollen and in incredible amounts of pain. I’m looking forward to posting more progress pictures as my body continues down the road to full recovery. Not a single part of this entire surgery process has been easy for me. But it’s 100% been worth it and the worst of it is behind me. There is no magic wand that fixes everything when it comes to transitioning. But I can definitively say that even despite the extra thousands I have to spend, and all the pain I went through that I feel better than ever mentally and can’t believe my life is finally mine and not a constant labor for my transition. Here’s looking to my future! Happy #throwbackthursday !! #trans #transgender #cosmeticconcierge #drhopesherie #transandinked #postop #ftm #queer #lgbtq #lgbt #topsurgery #freedomscars #transman #transhealth #translivesmatter #transvisibility #transformation #f2m #shirtlesssummer #feelingfree

The first episode of the new season was “From Hunter to Huntee,” where the Queer Eye guys first debated the pronunciation of ‘squirrel’, starring Jody as the contestant.

This episode “Jones Bar-B-Q” followed the transformation of two sisters — the show’s first duo.

They wrote: “We have received so much love and support from all around the world since our @queereye episode aired on Friday.

“We are feeling so blessed and want to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your thoughtful and touching messages. Your words are so meaningful.”

What’s more, their business has been booming since the episode aired.

By the end of the week with the Queer Eye’s Fab Five, Jess embraced her identity as a strong, black, beautiful lesbian woman. (Netflix)

Jess Guilbeaux was Queer Eye‘s first lesbian hero, and it was an episode that left many in tears. 

She came out to her religious, adoptive family at 16 years old. They rejected her, and she’s had to take care of herself ever since.

But the 23-year-old found a family in the Fab Five and the show helped her so much. She told PinkNews: “I still chat with literally all of them and they’re amazing and I am so grateful to have five new dads.”

I have been crazy nervous about our episode because I know that we were a mess, and let’s be honest, a mess is putting it nicely! Regardless, I am so thankful that we were able to have the Fab 5 come into our lives and help us prepare for baby Rowan. I’m so thankful that we have the amazing support system we do. I’m thankful that Kai has turned into the most gorgina big sister anyone could ask for who constantly tries to sneak the baby treats that she can’t eat yet 😂. I’m thankful for all of our friends and family who have been here on this new baby journey. I’m thankful for all the new friendships that we’ve made because of this experience. But, I’m most thankful for my partner in crime Tony papa bear Blanco, for being brave enough to put himself out there. For loving me enough to ask for help. For teaching me how to ask for help because let’s be honest with this crew I need to ask quite a bit. I love you babe and there is no one I’d rather raise these little girls with. ❤️🥰😍 Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who has helped us through this amazing journey especially @tonymfblanco @queereye @jvn @tanfrance @bobbyberk @antoni @karamo
