As the Netflix reality show returns, its superstars descend on the urban Australian township of Yass to record a mini chapter and explain the secrets of their gigantic success
Jonathan Van Ness screams- and then starts crying. The Queer Eye hotshot is sitting in a vehicle on a cattle farm in the rural Australian town of Yass, New South Wales. As the snaps 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 admirers- 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 frame:” Oh, Michelle ,” he coos, tenderly rubbing his friend’s limb.” You shaped our baby’s dream is true !”
The resulting post, which has had almost 1m deems 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 folly ), but likewise the whole cast’s feelgood earnestness, the exultation they take in each other and their eagerness to play up every charming moment and communicate it straight to social media.
Van Ness( 31, the grooming 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 local farmer, George, and a saloon. 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 world .”
