As the Netflix reality show returns, its virtuosoes descend on the rural Australian town of Yass to record a mini chapter and explain the secrets of their huge success
Jonathan Van Ness screams- and then starts crying. The Queer Eye star is sitting in a automobile on a cattle farm in the rural Australian township 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 partisans- 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 pas his head into frame:” Oh, Michelle ,” he coos, tenderly chafing his friend’s limb.” You stirred our baby’s dream come true !”
The resulting post, which has had almost 1m thoughts 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 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 straight-out to social media.
Van Ness( 31, the train expert ), Brown( 37, culture ), Antoni Porowski( 34, food ), 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 neighbourhood farmer, George, and a inn. The place was selected thanks to the pun: as Van Ness illustrates to the taciturn George: “‘ Yas queen’ is a major slogan for the homosexuals and the brunch-going ladies of all countries of the world .”
