Netflix has blessed us with a Nailed It and Queer Eye crossover episode — and it is a beautiful, fabulous mess

There’s no arguing that Queer Eye and Nailed It! bring some of the *most* delight to Netflix viewers — because come on, what’s better than makeovers and baking??

There’s nothing more heartwarming than watching the Fab Five transform people’s lives for the better, and there’s also nothing funnier than witnessing frustrated bakers’ desperate attempt to recreate complicated cakes and pastries. Perhaps the only thing that would make both shows better is if they joined forces — and because Netflix is Netflix, the streaming site offered us the crossover episode we never even knew we needed.

Yep, a Queer Eye and Nailed It! crossover episode exists, released with the second season of the latter, and I don’t know about you, but it’s the most ambitious crossover event in HISTORY. (No offense, Infinity War.)

Can you believe?!

In the episode, our BFFs Antoni Porowski, Jonathan Van Ness, Tan France, Bobby Berk, and Karamo Brown visit the Nailed It! kitchen for a fabulous baking challenge. The guys, with the exception of Antoni (as he is tasked by host Nicole Byer and chocolatier Jacques Torres to be the guest judge) try to recreate fondant versions of themselves, and well…let’s just say that they’re better off revamping houses and putting together outfits.

“The kitchen is my sunken place,” culture expert Karamo says at one point, to which Byer responded, “Don’t be a black man giving up in front of America!”

We don’t want to spoil anything, so we won’t tell you who wins, but we’ll tell you this: It is NOT Jonathan, because his finished cupcake of Tan is a complete MESS.


I’m sorry, henny, but that does not resemble a cupcake AT ALL.

Trust us when we say that the Queer Eye x Nailed It! crossover event is the best 12 minutes you’ll watch today. You may stream the whole episode on Netflix here or the shorter version on YouTube here.

Hey, Netflix, it if isn’t too much to ask, can we have an entire season of this? We’re pretty sure we’ll have no problem watching the Fab Five banter with Nicole and nail it for hours on end.
