As the Netflix reality show returns, its aces descend on the rural Australian town of Yass to record a mini chapter and explain the secrets of their massive success
Jonathan Van Ness screams- and then starts crying. The Queer Eye whiz is sitting in a car on a cattle farm in the rural Australian township of Yass, New South Wales. As the tears stream down his face, he begins filming himself on his phone.
” I simply 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 latest of whom is the retired Olympian figure skater.
His co-star Karamo Brown daddies his head into chassis:” Oh, Michelle ,” he coos, tenderly chafing his friend’s limb.” You made our baby’s dream come true !”
The resulting post, which has had almost 1m viewpoints at the time of writing, is solid Queer Eye content, encapsulating not only what fans of the reality show love about Van Ness( his inexhaustible exaggeration ), but also the whole cast’s feelgood earnestness, the pleasure 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, meat ), Bobby Berk( 36, blueprint) and Tan France( 35, fashion) 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 pub. The orientation was selected thanks to the pun: as Van Ness interprets to the taciturn George: “‘ Yas queen’ is a major motto for the lesbians and the brunch-going ladies of the world countries .”
