Karamo Brown is Queer Eye’s resident “swag-spert,” but it turns out he’s not as suave when it comes to matters of the heart in his own life.
The Fab Five member revealed the hilarious way he literally swept his now-fiancé, Ian Jordan, off his feet when they first met, and it’s uncharacteristically awkward. During an interview with Yahoo! Lifestyle, Brown remembered spotting Jordan at a club in Los Angles and feeling compelled to start a conversation by playfully lifting him in the air, as one does.
“When I picked him up he started hitting my head, saying, ‘Put me down!’” Brown recalled. “And when I put him down, he looked at me and said, ‘Oh, hey, you can pick me back up.’” Yaass, henny.
But their Dirty Dancing moment didn’t seal the relationship deal. The Queer Eye star opted to invite his new love interest to his birthday party that weekend, but when Jordan did some Facebook stalking, he saw that Brown was listed as “In a relationship,” and decided not to go.
It turns out, Brown had forgotten to update his status after his last relationship ended. Thankfully, the two got on the same page, and now, eight years later, are planning their wedding for October 2020, according to Yahoo!.
Um, anyone else think their meet-cute belongs in a rom-com? We’d watch that.
