20 Queer Eye Lessons We’re Thankful For
“There’s something to be said for casual, simple elegance.”
We thought we were watching a Parks & Recreation rerun when we saw the season two episode, “Make Ted Great Again,” but as it turns out there are some young mayors who aren’t ice clowns running ice towns. The hero of the episode, Ted, is the mayor of Clarkston, Georgia, and he’s got big plans. The Fab Five have some things to say about his hippie tendencies, however, and a little bit of political restructuring is due. For one thing, Ted has never even hosted a dinner party. Enter Antoni, who is here to remind the young leader, and all of us, that sometimes nicely-executed minimalism is best. It’s a good Queer Eye lesson to remember that less is often more and that putting your best foot forward doesn’t require all the bells and whistles. Antoni definitely has our vote.
