As the Netflix reality show returns, its stars descend on the urban Australian town of Yass to record a mini chapter and explain the secrets of their immense success
Jonathan Van Ness screams- and then starts crying. The Queer Eye ace is sitting in a auto on a cattle farm in the urban Australian township of Yass, New South Wales. As the snaps stream down his face, he begins filming himself on his phone.
” I exactly found out Michelle Kwan followed me on Instagram and lost my memory ,” he tells his admirers- closely connected 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 poppings his head into frame:” Oh, Michelle ,” he coos, tenderly chafing his friend’s arm.” You constituted our baby’s dream come true !”
The resulting pole, which has had almost 1m positions at the time of writing, is solid Queer Eye content, encapsulating not only what fans of current realities demo been fucking loving Van Ness( his inexhaustible folly ), but also the whole cast’s feelgood earnestness, the elation they take in one another 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, meat ), Bobby Berk( 36, design) and Tan France( 35, fad) are in Yass to movie a mini webisode to promote the second largest line of Queer Eye, in which they make over a neighbourhood farmer, George, and a pub. The locating was selected thanks to the pun: as Van Ness justifies to the taciturn George: “‘ Yas queen’ is a major slogan for the gays and the brunch-going ladies “of the worlds” .”
