As the Netflix reality show returns, its starrings descend on the rural Australian municipality of Yass to record a mini escapade and explain the secrets of their enormous success
Jonathan Van Ness screams- and then starts crying. The Queer Eye whiz is sitting in a car on a cattle farm in the urban Australian township of Yass, New South Wales. As the rips stream down his face, he begins filming himself on his phone.
” I merely found out Michelle Kwan followed me on Instagram and lost my mind ,” he tells his followers- close to a million of them on the social network, the most recent developments of whom is the retired Olympian figure skater.
His co-star Karamo Brown poppings his head into chassis:” Oh, Michelle ,” he coos, tenderly rubbing his friend’s forearm.” You stirred our baby’s dream is true !”
The resulting post, which has had almost 1m sentiments at the time of writing, is solid Queer Eye content, encapsulating not only what devotees of the reality show been fucking loving Van Ness( his inexhaustible exaggeration ), but likewise the whole cast’s feelgood earnestness, the glee they take in each other and their eagerness to play up every charming moment and move it straight-out to social media.
Van Ness( 31, the train expert ), Brown( 37, culture ), Antoni Porowski( 34, food ), Bobby Berk( 36, designing) and Tan France( 35, style) 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 inn. The place was selected thanks to the pun: as Van Ness justifies to the taciturn George: “‘ Yas queen’ is a major slogan for the gays and the brunch-going ladies “of the worlds” .”
