Queer Eye’s Antoni Porowski is on tour. A press tour for his new book, that is.
The chef is hitting up all the outlets hocking his new cookbook Antoni in The Kitchen and seems to be doing a pretty good job. He announced this evening that he’s already no.2 on the New York Times Bestseller List. So he’s doing something right. But in one of his interviews, he revealed a lot more than just cooking advice.
In a video for Buzzfeed, the Queer Eye food expert read some thirsty tweets about him — and his responses were quite informative. Case in point: No, Antoni would not cook naked for you.
“Cooking naked is dangerous, especially near an open flame,” he says in response to a tweet. Well, looks like we know what not to expect in terms of imagery in the book! But that was only the tip of the iceberg.
“Antoni could swim in my bussy and I stand by that,” reads one of the tweets. And while that’s pretty much the equivalent to “hello” on Twitter, Antoni was unclear on the jargon.
“What’s a bussy?” he asked.
“Like a man’s butt …” someone replies offscreen. There’s a second as he internalizes and replays the sentence and then: “Swim?!” Yes, Antoni! Someone is trying to get wreckt.
On the plus side, he later confirms that, as it’s been teased on Instagram multiple times, he does in fact have “very sensitive nipples.”
But it was the last tweet that did us in.
In response to a post that calls close up shots of Antoni cooking “actual porn,” Antoni points out that he’s always holding a knife in those shots, which he says “feels very dangerous.”
“I guess knives are weirdly sexual aren’t they,” he says, clearly mulling it over. “It’s like being choked: some of us like it but we know it’s dangerous. But if you like choking make sure you have a safe way. Actually, I learned this the hard way, about to have some TMI.”
“Don’t have a safe word — have a safe move because often you can’t speak if you’re being choked,” Antoni adds.” Pro tip, you’re welcome to that kids.”
Why didn’t Queer Eye cast him an expert on this! Watch the full video below.
