According to her official bio, “Brittany Broski took the internet by storm in 2019 with her wit, charm, and of course, distaste for kombucha. Brittany’s rise to fame has truly captured the new influencer frontiers of TikTok, demonstrating just how random—and yet, correct—virality can be. With nearly 8 million followers across her TikTok accounts, Brittany is currently one of the most viral people on the internet. Her social platforms continue to exponentially grow as more fans get hooked on her hilarious and relatable content. In the past year, Brittany has been named Paper Magazine’s TikToker of the Year, appeared in a Super Bowl commercial, created content for Comedy Central and MTV, and has a number of ongoing brand deals. Brittany is currently nominated in Comedy for the 2020 Streamy Awards.”
According to her Shorty Awards bio, “as her fans know, Sarah Schauer keeps it real and honest 100% of the time. A self-described ‘Youtuber when I feel like it, Ex-Viner, and all around piece of sh*t,’ the YouTube comedian uploads videos on an assortment of topics from ‘famous TikTokers steal my vines and I make fun of them’ to “How to Sell Pictures of Your Feet,” a video that became her most popular of all time with 1.75M+ views. Sarah’s unique approach to humor and comedy has netted her 160K+ subscribers on YouTube, a fanbase that both knows what to expect and doesn’t with each new upload. After new life updates that she’s fun-employed and moving to LA, Sarah can spend her 2020 fully focused on making her fans laugh.”

According to his official bio, “Antoni Porowski is a New York Times bestselling author and star of Netflix’s hit series Queer Eye. As the show’s food and wine expert, the self-taught cook brings with him a lifelong passion for food first cultivated through television, where he was captivated by culinary giants like Julia Child, Jacques Pépin, and Anthony Bourdain, and later honed in restaurants from Montreal to New York and under mentor Ted Allen, original Fab Five food and wine expert. Antoni’s first cookbook, Antoni in the Kitchen, was released in Fall 2019, debuting at #2 on the New York Times’ Best Seller List. Antoni can currently be seen in Netflix’s Emmy Award-winning series Queer Eye, which has won “Outstanding Structured Reality Program” for three consecutive years. In 2020, Antoni and his fellow Fab Five received their first Emmy nominations for “Outstanding Hosts For A Reality Or Competition Program.” Coming up, Antoni is developing a feature film for Netflix with Black-ish creator Kenya Barris loosely based on Antoni’s real-life dating experiences as a sexually fluid man entitled Girls and Boys. Antoni has graced the covers of Gay Times, Out Magazine, Fashion Magazine, and Entertainment Weekly, where he and his castmates were listed among 2018’s Entertainers of the Year. A finalist for People’s Choice Reality TV Star of 2019 and 2020 and winner of Eater’s 2018 #Brand of the Year and People’s 2019 Readers’ Choice Sexiest Reality Star, Antoni continues to connect with audiences the world over. Born in Canada to Polish emigrants, Antoni is an outspoken advocate for LGBTQ+ rights everywhere, especially his family’s native Poland.”
