Terri White is one of the new cast of Netflix's loved show, "Queer Eyes." The show, as we know it, is a massive success and is now in its sixth season. The reboot of the franchise features Fab Five and a new setting, and this time, it's Texas.
Queer Eye season 6 was released on Netflix on December 21, 2021, and the show right away takes us to Austin, Texas. This season, the Fab Five, Karamo Brown, Tan France, Jonathan Van Ness, Bobby Berk, and Antonio Porowski are all reprising their roles.
From the preview alone, we can see that fans will get to meet interesting locals throughout Fab Five's Texas journey. One of the most interesting locals who managed to grab the viewers' attention is Terri White. So, Who is Terri White?
Terri from Queer Eye is the dance instructor, as we were introduced. However, after some research, it was known that Terri White is the daughter of a well-known business owner, James White. James is the founder of Broken Spoke, one of the most renowned honky-tonks in Austin.
Broken Spoke is a legend of its own; it is the last of the true Texas dancehalls that opened in Austin in the 1960s. However, the honky-tonks had their fair share of downfalls, the bar was closed all this time, but luckily it was reopened in October 2020 as a restaurant.
Broken Spoke Austin has lost its part after the long hiatus; however, the people behind it are working hard to help it get its original vibe. And Terri White is working day-in and out to help her father's business up and running like the old times.
Terri White from Queer Eye works as a dance instructor at her father's business; Terri, who is 59 years old, promises the best dance lesson in town. In fact, she is the first two-step instructor and was voted the best by Texas Highways. But before working as a dance instructor, she worked as a night cook, day cook, waitress and bartender.
There are no known cases that Terri from Queer sells drugs; however, she has not been very kind to Broken Spoke after her father passed away. When the Fab Five visited Terri, they found she has ADD, much like Berk himself.
Yes, Terri White uses a wig; the viewers learned about it when Ness carefully navigated around a rather sensitive topic with her hair, seeing that her natural hair was a serious source of anxiety for her. He styled her wig but encouraged her immensely to embrace her natural hair and focus on growing it out healthy.
Terri's father, James White, passed away on January 24, 2021. He suffered from congestive heart failure, which was diagnosed 20 years ago. Before his death, he had been in and out of the hospital due to complications regarding a new defibrillator.
