As the Netflix reality show returns, its adepts descend on the urban Australian township of Yass to record a mini episode and explain the secrets of their gigantic success
Jonathan Van Ness screams- and then starts crying. The Queer Eye wizard is sitting in a auto on a cattle farm in the rural Australian town of Yass, New South Wales. As the weepings stream down his face, he begins filming himself on his phone.
” I just found out Michelle Kwan followed me on Instagram and lost my mind ,” he tells his adherents- 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 daddies his head into chassis:” Oh, Michelle ,” he coos, tenderly rubbing his friend’s arm.” You cleared our baby’s dream is true !”
The resulting post, which has had almost 1m vistums at the time of writing, is solid Queer Eye content, encapsulating not only what fans of the reality show been fucking loving Van Ness( his inexhaustible exaggeration ), but likewise the whole cast’s feelgood earnestness, the exhilaration they take in each other and their eagerness to play up every charming moment and mail it straight-out to social media.
Van Ness( 31, the grooming expert ), Brown( 37, culture ), Antoni Porowski( 34, food ), Bobby Berk( 36, designing) and Tan France( 35, way) 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 location 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 .”
