Karamo Brown Ready to Get Married Despite Past Engagement Breakup

Karamo Brown, host of “Karamo” and part of the “Queer Eye” quintet, has revealed he is ready to get married to his current boyfriend, photographer Carlos Medel. Brown’s previous engagement to Ian Jordan was called off during the pandemic, and he has been dating Medel for the past two years. Brown feels uniquely qualified to help others on his talk show because of his experiences as a black gay man of immigrant parents and as a single parent who has adopted two children.

Karamo Brown is ready to get married and says his “biological clock is ticking.”

Karamo Brown, famous for his role in Netflix’s “Queer Eye,” has expressed his desire to walk down the aisle with his current partner, Carlos Medel. Brown, 42, has been in a relationship with Medel for the past two years, following a decade-long relationship with Ian Jordan. Brown and Jordan ended their engagement during the pandemic, as they realized there were some things they needed to work on, but were unable to overcome their difficulties.

Brown admits that his “biological clock is ticking” and he is ready to get married. He jokes that he wants to avoid pressuring Medel while simultaneously dropping hints. They are currently not experiencing any problems in their relationship, unlike his previous engagement.

As the first openly gay black man to appear on MTV’s “The Real World” in 2004, Brown has since become part of the immensely popular “Queer Eye” quintet, alongside hosts Antoni Porowski, Tan France, Jonathan Van Ness, and Bobby Berk. Brown believes that the show’s success is due to the team’s genuine desire to help others, rather than seeking fame.

Aside from his role in “Queer Eye,” Brown hosts his own syndicated talk show, “Karamo,” which features real people and their problems. The show has been renewed for a second season and focuses on having guests experience a breakthrough in their issues. Brown says he prays daily that every guest will leave with a newfound understanding to make a positive change.

As a black gay man of immigrant parents, Brown feels particularly well-suited to help a range of different groups. He is also a single parent who found out in 2007 that he was the father of a 10-year-old son, Jason, and adopted Jason’s half-brother Chris in 2010. Last year, Brown revealed that Jason had battled drug addiction and overdosed but is now two years sober. Brown’s personal life experiences enable him to connect with guests on his show and empathize with their situations.
