CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Charmin, the brand on a mission to provide people a better bathroom experience, announced today the results of a new, groundbreaking survey that found people named John prefer Charmin over every other toilet paper brand when on the john.* In honor of Charmin’s favorite name, they will be giving out free toilet paper to Johns and friends and family of Johns nationwide today, June 5, with the help of Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness.

“I’ve always really enjoyed Charmin’s mission to make my bathroom experience more gorgeous,” said Jonathan Van Ness. “When I found out the results of their groundbreaking survey, that Johns, Jonathans, Johnnys, and Johnathinas all said that Charmin was also their fave, I knew I had to jump on the opportunity to partner with them.”
