Known as part of the Fab Five, actor-chef Porowski acts as the the food and wine expert on Netflix’s Emmy-nominated “Queer Eye” reboot. Earlier this month, he beat “Queer Eye” co-star Jonathan Van Ness in developer Scopely’s charity “Scrabble Go” mobile game tournament, and also got the highest score of all the A-list participants.

On behalf of Porowski, Scopely will donate $12,350 to the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), a nonprofit which works to end discrimination in K-12 schools across the country. The funds were based on Porowski’s high score, plus an additional $5,000 from Scopely as a reward for out-scoring his competition. Porowski recently released two cook books and is repped by CAA.

Next up, Barris wrote the screenplays for Paramount’s “Coming to America” sequel and Robert Zemeckis’ “The Witches” remake. Barris is repped by CAA, Artists First and Morris Yorn.
