Tan France reveals differences between British and Americans


In times of crisis, we all have to take a moment and give ourselves a warm laugh. Queer Eye‘s fab five delivered some much needed LOLs over the weekend, as our favorite, comforting divas shared the real differences between the British and Americans in a hilarious video clip.Although the Americans (Jonathan Van Ness, Karamo Brown, Antoni Porowski and Bobby Berk) have an unfair advantage over the only Briton (Tan France), it is worth saying that if the Americans have “spirit”, the British have “fabulosity”. In front, seven Very significant differences between the British and the Americans, from pronunciations to celebrations:

Tomato or Tomahto?

Antoni and Tan joked that the pronunciation of the “tomato” reigns supreme and whether the beloved summer fruit is indeed a vegetable. “Too long tomahtoes have been misunderstood,” jokes Antoni, where Tan chimes in “It’s tomato!”
