Queer Eye begins its search for a home design expert who could fill the (very busy) shoes of Bobby Berk after his surprising departure from the series, his former Fab Five pal Karamo is done looking—at least when it comes to romantic partners.Since 2021, the self-help guru and daytime talk show host has been happily linked up with Carlos Medel, a commercial photographer and art director.And that’s a good thing, because Karamo has had it with dating apps and the modern dating scene in general.Subscribe to our daily newsletter for a refreshing cocktail (or mocktail) of LGBTQ+ entertainment and pop culture, served up with a side of eye-candy.In a new interview with Attitude, the Queer Eye star took a break from shirtless partying in London to call out dating apps for emphasizing superficiality and having a negative impact on self-esteem and interpersonal relationships within the LGBTQ+ community:“That ability to find spaces, and each other, and hear each other’s stories made us strong as a community,” Karamo tells the publication. “When you get to a point where all I have to do is look at a photo and now don’t like you?

It’s a slippery slope.”Oof, harsh words for Tinder, Grindr, and the like—apps that have always been “picture-forward.”A post shared by Karamo (@karamo)But why the critique from Karamo, especially because he does seem to be in such a healthy, committed relationship—and is decidedly not on the apps at the moment?

Well, before finding Medel, he threw himself head-first into technology-driven dating… and he didn’t like the results.“I gave them a go while I was single, went all in and did 40 dates in 40 nights and hated every minute,” Karamo reveals. “I realized, because of the access and availability, there was no point getting invested, asking more questions, going to the next level.”Antoni Porowski has entered his smooth era.Respectfully, Karamo, it doesn’t really sound like you set yourself up for success there with that dating marathon.
