Bobby Berk leave Queer Eye

Bobby Berk was ‘asked to leave’ Queer Eye after the show’s cast began to ‘resent him’

‘He wasn’t vibing with the cast’

Let’s be honest, Bobby absolutely carries all the Queer Eye transformations, but sadly he won’t be returning to the show after the next season.

Bobby Berk announced that after six years he had made the “difficult decision” to leave Queer Eye. But a source has now claimed that Bobby Berk was “asked to leave” after issues with the rest of the Queer Eye cast.

The source said: “There were many challenges with scheduling and there was a loss of interest from Bobby filming the show. The network and the cast thought it was time to bring in fresh blood. His heart was not in it and the rest of the cast started to resent him because of that.”

Bobby Berk announced his decision to leave Queer Eye in a lengthy and emotional Instagram post. He wrote: “To the Queer Eye Community who have become family to me.

“The love that I have received from you all over the last six years has been absolutely surreal. You have tuned in and been dedicated fans and together we were able to share the healing powers of design. I learned from you all about kindness, love and acceptance and that has changed my life for the better.

“The way you have embraced me and accepted me for who I am is something that l will truly carry with me for the rest of my life.  Throughout these years, you, the die-hard fans of Queer Eye, have all shared so many stories with me about how the show has touched your lives and I could not be more grateful to each and every one of you for being brave enough to share your experiences.

“To all our wonderful, loving, amazing, and brave heroes there is so much I want to say, and so much gratitude I want to express 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 has changed me for the better.

“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 with a heavy heart that I announce that season eight 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.”
