Fans were absolutely crushed when it was announced that Bobby Berk, aka one of the Fab 5, wouldn't be returning for the upcoming Queer Eye season 9. For eight amazing seasons, Berk provided the comedy as well as his expertise on interior design. But while it looked like he and the rest of the Fab 5 were getting along great, apparently there was some unresolved tension that played a part in his departure.

But how will the show go on with a missing Fab 5 member? Will Antoni, Jonathan, Karamo, and Tan be the Fab 4 now? Well, it looks like Berk's absence won't necessarily affect the group because it's just been announced who will be replacing him in the ninth season. It's none other than interior designer and TV personality Jeremiah Brent. He, along with Antoni, Jonathan, Karamo, and Tan, will be hosting the new season, and we can't wait to see how his addition to the series turns out. Will fans love him like they loved Berk? I guess we'll have to wait until Queer Eye season 9 comes out to find out.
