If you've watched any of the three seasons of Netflix hit reality series Queer Eye, you know what to expect from the Fab Five.

But the one who everyone seems to go gaga over is Antoni Porowski, the Fab Five's resident chef, who helps the show's subjects learn how to take care of themselves by cooking simple but delicious meals.

(Hot take: It's usually guacamole.)


Porowski has a style all his own. He has a rather disaffected manner of speaking. He sometimes seems like he's drifting off somewhere else. Is he high? Who knows? Maybe.

That hasn't stopped him from amassing an enormous following on social media.

And if imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then Antoni can rest easy knowing he has someone like comedian Benito Skinner to impersonate him. Skinner, who posts on Instagram under the username @bennydrama7 of Antoni taking on Seattle.

"I'm here at Pike Place Market in this gorgeous town of Seattle," he says in that sleepy drawl. "I absolutely adore it."

Oh, but it gets better: Skinner proceeds to gush effusively over flowers picked at the "gardens of Kanazawa, Japan"... among others.

It's all so... what's that word he used? Precious. Utterly precious.

That's true, he did forget those.

But no matter: It's uncanny.




We will never be able to look at Antoni the same way again.

How you approach life's many trials and tribulations can say a lot about who you are. However, many of us don't necessarily learn some lessons so easily.

Life is complicated. It's messy. Few, if any things, go according to plan. On top of that, sometimes the way we handle our relationships or our obligations might not be the most healthy one.

You live, you learn... or so the saying goes.

People shared their stories after Redditor ryanblumenow asked the online community,

"What did you learn at great personal cost?"
