Antoni Porowski is a Canadian television personality, actor, chef and model. He is known for his role as the food and wine expert on the Emmy award-winning Netflix series Queer Eye.
Porowski was born in Montreal, Quebec to Polish parents after they immigrated to Canada with his two older sisters. His father is a physician. He grew up speaking Polish, English, and French. Similarly, Antoni Porowski and his parents moved to Glade Springs, West Virginia when he was 12, and he lived between there.
Upon moving to New York City, Porowski began auditioning for various acting roles. Furthermore, he has landed roles in movies such as Elliot Loves (since 2012), Daddy’s Boy (2016), The Pretenders (2018), and as the lead officer in a 2014 episode of TV series The Blacklist. Additionally, the short film was part of the 2016 Cannes Film Festival’s Short Film Corner.
In the meantime, he worked in food service to cover his rent, first working as a busboy at a family-run Polish restaurant. Antoni Porowski worked his way up in the restaurant industry, working as a waiter and sommelier, eventually managing BondSt sushi restaurant. Porowski lives in the same neighbourhood as Ted Allen, the original Queer Eye food and wine expert and current host of Food Network cooking competition Chopped. The two became friends, and for a time Porowski worked for Allen as a personal chef.
Porowski states that his sexuality is “a little more fluid along the spectrum” and that he prefers not to label. He dated Joey Krietemeyer for more than seven years, but the relationship ended in October 2018. He confirmed via Instagram in December 2018 that he was dating Trace Lehnhoff. However, the two split after one year of dating.
Porowski and his Queer Eye costar Jonathan Van Ness trolled the internet by setting up a joined Instagram account, pretending to be a couple. Later they confirmed that there was nothing serious to it.
