“I was most excited to meet him,” Karamo told Access when asked who he thought was his biggest competition. “Like the thing is that most people look at us and think we’re polar opposites, but I’m a big believer that if you can talk to someone and meet in the middle, you can learn about each other and help each other both grow. And so, we have been chatting all day today, like he’s a good guy, really sweet guy.”

@Karamo, you’re breaking my heart. Sean Spicer isn’t someone seeking your help on Queer Eye. He was the voice of the White Supremacist in Chief. It’s great to see the best in everyone, but holding people accountable is important.
