What we need right now is a season of Queer Eye that is full of wholesome, heartwarming material. Christmas came early for those who missed the Fab Five and their many talents, as the show returned to Netflix over the break. We met Josh Eilers, a 32-year-old rancher from Austin, Texas, in episode three. Josh has a long list of accomplishments to his name, but he wasn’t sure how to care for himself amid his hectic schedule.
Fandom was immediately enamored with Josh’s affable demeanor, and the prospect of him and Kayla, his ex-girlfriend, rekindling their romance.
Check out Josh Eilers’s story and where she is right now in the video below.
HOW DID THE FAB FIVE HELP JOSH?
Jonathan and Josh quickly formed a friendship over their mutual love of long hair. Jonathan was eager to experiment with a new look on Josh, and Josh was more than happy to follow his lead. Josh’s new look was immediately apparent when he opted for a shoulder-length cut.
While Josh was hesitant to undergo a complete wardrobe overhaul, Tan encouraged him by emphasizing the importance of dressing for the occasion and letting go of other people’s expectations.
At first, Antoni had a hard time persuading Josh to eat more vegetables, but once he saw how simple (and tasty) it can be, Josh was won over.
Bobby spent a lot of time and money remodeling Josh’s house. It wasn’t long before Bobby showed Josh how simple it was to transform a shipping container into a home, while still preserving its original character. After Josh expressed his desire to start a family, he even gave him his family crest.
Karamo also helped Josh with dating etiquette and how to have more meaningful conversations in his life, which were the final two things he helped with. Josh confessed to Kayla that he didn’t treat her the way she deserved to be treated and that he was deeply sorry for what happened. Self-love has been an issue for him, and he talked openly about it in his interview. Rather than burying the hatchet, Karamo suggested that he extend an olive branch to Kayla and begin the process of mending their broken relationship.
WHERE IS JOSH EILERS NOW?
After the Fab Five left, we saw that Josh and Kayla had reconnected, but it’s unclear if this is the beginning of a romantic relationship between them. But Kayla is still on the Ranger Cattle Facebook page, indicating that they still have a solid professional relationship.
Kayla reassured Josh that she would be there for him no matter what he decided to work on loving himself before committing to another relationship.
His cattle operation is still going strong, with the addition of ranch tours and private tastings and dinners in the property’s award-winning tasing room.
