As the Netflix reality show returns, its whizs descend on the urban Australian township of Yass to record a mini chapter and explain the secrets of their gargantuan success
Jonathan Van Ness screams- and then starts crying. The Queer Eye idol is sitting in a vehicle on a cattle farm in the rural Australian town of Yass, New South Wales. As the rips 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 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 papas his head into frame:” Oh, Michelle ,” he coos, tenderly chafing his friend’s forearm.” You moved our baby’s dream is true !”
The resulting post, which has had almost 1m positions 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 likewise the whole cast’s feelgood earnestness, the exhilaration they take in each other and their eagerness to play up every charming moment and transmit it directly to social media.
Van Ness( 31, the grooming expert ), Brown( 37, culture ), Antoni Porowski( 34, meat ), Bobby Berk( 36, layout) and Tan France( 35, style) 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 tavern. The point was selected thanks to the pun: as Van Ness explains to the taciturn George: “‘ Yas queen’ is a major motto for the homosexuals and the brunch-going ladies “of the worlds” .”
