Karamo Brown has had a wild few weeks, ever since it was announced that he would be joining the celebrity cast of Season 28 of Dancing with the Stars. In his latest Instagram post, he can be seen chilling on vacation in Hawaii, letting it all hang out while taking in a sunrise with his fiancé Ian Jordan.
Of course, his Queer Eye co-stars noticed and sent him a lot of love and appreciation in the comments, with Tan France saying Karamo must have woken up “parched” to post such a thirst trap, while Jonathan Van Ness said “you know I’m here for this content!!!!” It’s official, Antoni Porowski is no longer the thirstiest member of the Fab Five on social media.
Instagram is currently Karamo’s only social channel, as he deactivated his Twitter account after receiving criticism for comments he made about his fellow Dancing with the Stars contestant Sean Spicer. While doing press for the show, Karamo described the former White House press secretary as a “really sweet guy”, saying that he was looking forward to having “respectful conversations” with him as they worked together on the show.
The casting of Spicer had already drawn a negative response from some fans and Dancing with the Stars host Tom Bergeron, and Karamo’s unsolicited remarks were interpreted by many to be an endorsement of Spicer’s politics. (Karamo had also previously stated that he would gladly sit down with Karen Pence, prompting Jonathan Van Ness to say “She doesn’t like you, girl! She doesn’t like us!”)
With the season premiere of Dancing with the Stars coming on September 16, maybe Karamo is hoping an artfully composed butt pic will act as a kind of palate cleanser before he starts relying on the general public for their phone-in votes.
