As the Netflix reality show returns, its starrings descend on the rural Australian township of Yass to record a mini chapter and explain the secrets of their huge success
Jonathan Van Ness screams- and then starts crying. The Queer Eye ace is sitting in a car on a cattle farm in the rural Australian town of Yass, New South Wales. As the snaps stream down his face, he begins filming himself on his phone.
” I precisely found out Michelle Kwan followed me on Instagram and lost my mind ,” he tells his admirers- close to a million of them on the social network, the latest of whom is the retired Olympian figure skater.
His co-star Karamo Brown papas his head into chassis:” Oh, Michelle ,” he coos, tenderly scratching his friend’s arm.” You reached our baby’s dream is true !”
The resulting post, which has had almost 1m deems at the time of writing, is solid Queer Eye content, encapsulating not only what love of the reality show love about Van Ness( his inexhaustible extravagance ), but also the whole cast’s feelgood earnestness, the exhilaration they take in each other and their eagerness to play up every charming moment and transport it straight-shooting to social media.
Van Ness( 31, the train expert ), Brown( 37, culture ), Antoni Porowski( 34, nutrient ), Bobby Berk( 36, motif) and Tan France( 35, fad) are in Yass to film a mini webisode to promote the second series of Queer Eye, in which they make over a neighbourhood farmer, George, and a tavern. The place was selected thanks to the pun: as Van Ness illustrates to the taciturn George: “‘ Yas queen’ is a major slogan for the gays and the brunch-going ladies of the world .”
