After Bobby Berk's departure from Queer Eye's Fab Five last season, we had spent months in the dark about which designer would take his place. However, the wait is over. Today, Netflix confirmed Jeremiah Brent is joining the team and will travel to Las Vegas to film season 9 this spring.

Jeremiah already has quite the enviable résumé. He kickstarted his career as a fashion stylist and Rachel Zoe's assistant and appeared on The Rachel Zoe Project before starring alongside his husband, Nate Berkus, on HGTV’s Nate & Jeremiah by Design and The Nate and Jeremiah Home Project. He also appeared as an interior design expert on Netflix’s Say I Do, a series developed by the same creators as Queer Eye. 

Beyond television, Jeremiah owns an eponymous design firm (that specializes in residential, commercial, and hospitality design in Los Angeles and New York City) and Atrio, a curated furniture store. 

Jeremiah will join his four co-stars who each have their own speciality in the makeover show. Tan France focuses on fashion, Jonathan Van Ness on grooming, Antoni Porowski on food and wine, and Karamo Brown on culture. Bobby Berk spent eight seasons as the show's interior design expert, working on designing and decorating the homes under tight time pressure. He announced his exit in November. 

'It’s with a heavy heart that I announce that season 8 will be my final season on Queer Eye. It’s not been an easy decision to be at peace with, but a necessary one. Although my journey with Queer Eye is over, my journey with you is not. You will be seeing more of me very soon,' he shared via an Instagram post. 

'To all our wonderful, loving, amazing, and brave heroes, there is so much I want to say and express so much gratitude to you all for letting me into your homes and hearts. It’s all because of you that I’ve kept going all these years, and each and every one of you have changed me for the better,' Bobby adds.

'I’m so very proud of all of you! Being able to help guide you to find the best version of yourselves is something I never took for granted and never will.'

It's been quite the week for Jeremiah, who also just released his new book, The Space That Keeps You. We can pick it up via Amazon below.
