As the Netflix reality show returns, its superstars descend on the rural Australian city of Yass to record a mini episode and explain the secrets of their enormous success
Jonathan Van Ness screams- and then starts crying. The Queer Eye sun is sitting in a gondola on a cattle farm in the rural Australian municipality of Yass, New South Wales. As the rends 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 followers- 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 pas his head into frame:” Oh, Michelle ,” he coos, tenderly rubbing his friend’s limb.” You attained our baby’s dream is true !”
The resulting post, which has had almost 1m opinions 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 exaggeration ), but likewise the whole cast’s feelgood earnestness, the rapture they take in each other and their eagerness to play up every charming moment and transmit it straight to social media.
Van Ness( 31, the prepare expert ), Brown( 37, culture ), Antoni Porowski( 34, meat ), Bobby Berk( 36, blueprint) 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 local farmer, George, and a inn. The location was selected thanks to the pun: as Van Ness justifies to the taciturn George: “‘ Yas queen’ is a major motto for the gays and the brunch-going ladies “of the worlds” .”
