With each season of 'Queer Eye' comes two things, makeovers and open heart to heart conversations. On Episode 3, titled 'No More Bull', the Fab Five met with 32-year-old rancher Josh Eilers. A little rough around the edges, Josh joined the army at 17 and found himself as a team leader in Afghanistan by age 20. Now, running a successful business, Josh never really learned what it was like to care for himself beyond the knowledge he had.

He was nominated by his ex-girlfriend, Kayla, the woman he considers as the one that got away, Tan France, Karamo Brown, Antoni Porowski, Jonathan Van Ness and Bobby Berk hoped they could help him make some all-important lifestyle changes.

When it came to Josh, the Fab Five were shocked. The fact that he didn't care much about personal hygiene, lived in a tiny shipping container and was more concerned about work than himself, genuinely meant it would take some hard work. Josh, too was overwhelmed by them, as they all came from very different worlds.

What did the Fab Five do for Josh?

When it came to his grooming, Josh and Jonathan Van Ness bonded on their choice to have long hair. JVN was certainly keen to push him out of his comfort zone, and Josh seemed willing for the most part. The two even had an open conversation about gender norms. He mentioned that he always wants to be polite and never hurt anyone, to which JVN explained that he was non-binary and that asking questions was more than okay.

Josh certainly put up resistance when it came to fashion, but Tan France was successful in having him see that he wanted him to dress for the occasion and not be concerned by what others might think. For Antonio Porowski, it was an uphill task to have Josh open his mind to learning how to incorporate vegetables into his meals — but seeing that Josh enjoyed cooking that particular change proved to be not that hard. Bobby Berk gave him a complete home overhaul.

While he still built his living quarters in a shipping container, he certainly added a lot more flair to it and even gave Josh his own family crest, as starting a family was something he wanted. When it came to Karamo, he helped Josh with date etiquette and how to have meaningful conversations. Josh opened up about how Kayla was the one for him, but he did not treat her the way she should have been treated. He also opened up about how he never learned to love himself to begin with. Karamo encouraged him to work towards an apology to build a relationship on a stronger foundation with Kayla.

Where is Josh Eilers now?

After the Fab Five left, Josh reconnected with Kayla on the show. However, as per his currently social media, there is no indication that they are still together. The last image he shared on his social media was with a certain Jennifer Tweedy, who is the Vice President of cattle operations at Mishima Reserve Wagyu Beef. The photo was captioned — "Six losses but one big win this season. #hookem "
