As the Netflix reality show returns, its wizards descend on the rural Australian township of Yass to record a mini escapade and explain the secrets of their gigantic success
Jonathan Van Ness screams- and then starts crying. The Queer Eye idol is sitting in a automobile 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 simply 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 latest of whom is the retired Olympian figure skater.
His co-star Karamo Brown papas his head into chassis:” Oh, Michelle ,” he coos, tenderly chafing his friend’s arm.” You manufactured 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 love of the reality show love about Van Ness( his inexhaustible exaggeration ), but also the whole cast’s feelgood earnestness, the rapture they take in each other and their eagerness to play up every charming moment and communicate it directly to social media.
Van Ness( 31, the grooming expert ), Brown( 37, culture ), Antoni Porowski( 34, food ), Bobby Berk( 36, motif) and Tan France( 35, mode) 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 inn. The point was selected thanks to the pun: as Van Ness interprets to the taciturn George: “‘ Yas queen’ is a major motto for the gays and the brunch-going ladies “of the worlds” .”
