As the Netflix reality show returns, its idols descend on the rural Australian township of Yass to record a mini chapter and explain the secrets of their immense success
Jonathan Van Ness bellows- and then starts crying. The Queer Eye whiz is sitting in a car on a cattle farm in the rural Australian municipality of Yass, New South Wales. As the rips stream down his face, he begins filming himself on his phone.
” I only found out Michelle Kwan came me on Instagram and lost my mind ,” he tells his partisans- 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 pops his head into frame:” Oh, Michelle ,” he coos, tenderly rubbing his friend’s limb.” You constituted our baby’s reverie come true !”
The resulting post, which has had almost 1m vistums at the time of writing, is solid Queer Eye content, encapsulating not only what devotees of the reality show love about Van Ness( his inexhaustible folly ), but likewise the whole cast’s feelgood earnestness, the delight 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, layout) and Tan France( 35, way) 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 locating was selected thanks to the pun: as Van Ness clarifies to the taciturn George: “‘ Yas queen’ is a major slogan for the homosexuals and the brunch-going ladies of the nations of the world .”
