Over the Top
- By: Jonathan Van Ness
- Narrated by: Jonathan Van Ness
- Length: 5 hrs and 50 mins
Before he stole our hearts as the grooming and self-care expert on Netflix’s hit show Queer Eye, Jonathan was growing up in a small Midwestern town that didn’t understand why he was so...over the top. From choreographed carpet figure skating routines to the unavoidable fact that he was Just. So. Gay., Jonathan was an easy target and endured years of judgment, ridicule and trauma - yet none of it crushed his uniquely effervescent spirit.
One of my favourite books!

Raw, real & refreshing
What a beautiful story. JVN truly lets us see all of his parts in this audiobook- there is something to be said about hearing an authors years through telling his story!
I adore his gorgeous moments of JVNess throughout (which I don’t think you would get without the audiobook)
Absolutely worth listening too!
Back, After the Break

It's hard to remember a time when Osher Gunsberg (or Andrew G as he was then) wasn't on TV - he's just always been there, looking at ease in the spotlight, beaming a big smile, with a questionable haircut. He was there hanging out with The Offspring backstage at the Warped Tour on Channel V; announcing to a national audience of three million people that Guy Sebastian was our first Australian Idol; and later capturing the heart of the nation by hosting every season of The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, and now Bachelor in Paradise.
Footnote, blah blah blah. Back to the book

Beautiful, honest & insightful
As someone who has grown up listening and watching Osher I was curious to hear his stories- what I wasn’t prepared for what the deeply moving, honest & sometimes graffic tales of his story so far.
He’s made me laugh & cry in the space of 3 days- could NOT stop listening!
A must listen for anyone who has ever suffered mental health, whose struggled with addiction.
