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 huge success
Jonathan Van Ness screams- and then starts crying. The Queer Eye adept is sitting in a gondola on a cattle farm in the rural Australian municipality of Yass, New South Wales. As the weepings 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 partisans- close to a million of them on the social network, the most recent of whom is the retired Olympian figure skater.
His co-star Karamo Brown pops his head into chassis:” Oh, Michelle ,” he coos, tenderly rubbing his friend’s arm.” You saw 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 followers of the reality show been fucking loving Van Ness( his inexhaustible extravagance ), but also the whole cast’s feelgood earnestness, the elation they take in each other and their eagerness to play up every charming moment and transmit it straight-from-the-shoulder to social media.
Van Ness( 31, the prepare expert ), Brown( 37, culture ), Antoni Porowski( 34, nutrient ), 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 neighbourhood farmer, George, and a saloon. The orientation was selected thanks to the pun: as Van Ness excuses to the taciturn George: “‘ Yas queen’ is a major slogan for the homosexuals and the brunch-going ladies of the world .”
