The Fab Five will be adding interior designer Jeremiah Brent to replace Bobby Berk on Queer Eye season 9.

The team, consisting of Antoni Porowski, Jonathan Van Ness, Karamo Brown and Tan France, will set to go intro production in Spring in Las Vegas.

Queer Eye produced by Scout Productions and ITV Entertainment, premiered in 2018 and is a reboot of the original 2003 series. It has become a streaming hit on Netflix, winning 11 Emmy awards. It currently holds the record for the most wins in the structured category with six consecutive wins.

Berk served as the interior design expert on the show for the first eight seasons. As of late, he announced he would not be continuing in the show back in November 2023.

In a Jan. 25 interview with Vanity Fair, Berk shared insight as to why he left the show. He said that he started planning other projects when the Fab Five’s seven-cycle contract was up in September 2022.

“We thought we were done. Mentally and emotionally, I thought we all moved on. I know I did, and I started planning other things,” Berk told the magazine. However, Netflix offered a new contract for four additional cycles and Berk “wasn’t willing to change” his plans or put his other projects on hold.

Queer Eye will not mark Brent’s first time around with a with home makeover TV, as he’s starred in several shows and has years of design experience. He’s also the founder of his own firm, Jeremiah Brent Design, and the “Ideas of Order” podcast host.


Brent, the founder of Jeremiah Brent Design (JBD) and lifestyle brand Atrio, rose to fame when working as Rachel Zoe’s styling associate on “The Rachel Zoe Project,” appearing in Season 4 in 2011. In 2014, Brent married interior designer Nate Berkus; the pair have collaborated on multiple projects, including their exclusive line with Living Spaces and co-hosting duties of “Nate & Jeremiah By Design,” “Nate & Jeremiah: Save My House” and “The Nate & Jeremiah Home Project.” The duo competed on HGTV’s “Rock the Block” in 2021.

Brent previously hosted the Emmy-winning “Home Made Simple” for the Oprah Winfrey Network. In 2020, he hosted Netflix’s “Say I Do,” a wedding spin on “Queer Eye,” produced by the same team. Brent served as the design expert alongside fashion expert Thai Nguyen and food expert Gabriele Bertaccini.

As of late, he also released a book titled “The Space That Keeps You: When Home Becomes a Love Story,” a design book with emotion, exploring what gives spaces meaning.

Brent tied the knot with interior designer and author Nate Berkus at the New York Public Library in May 2014.

Brent shares two children with Berkus, Poppy and Oskar, whom they welcomed in March 2015 and March 2018, respectively.

Brent is repped by CAA, manager Kelsey Berlacher and lawyers Steve Warren and Huy Nguyen.
