As the Netflix reality show returns, its stellars descend on the rural Australian town of Yass to record a mini chapter and explain the secrets of their immense success
Jonathan Van Ness hollers- and then starts crying. The Queer Eye virtuoso is sitting in a vehicle on a cattle farm in the rural Australian city of Yass, New South Wales. As the tears stream down his face, he begins filming himself on his phone.
” I only 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 most recent developments of whom is the retired Olympian figure skater.
His co-star Karamo Brown papas his head into chassis:” Oh, Michelle ,” he coos, tenderly rubbing his friend’s forearm.” You cleared our baby’s dreaming is true !”
The resulting post, which has had almost 1m considers at the time of writing, is solid Queer Eye content, encapsulating not only what fans of the reality show been fucking loving Van Ness( his inexhaustible exaggeration ), but also the whole cast’s feelgood earnestness, the exhilaration 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 train expert ), Brown( 37, culture ), Antoni Porowski( 34, meat ), Bobby Berk( 36, intend) 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 local farmer, George, and a pub. The place was selected thanks to the pun: as Van Ness clarifies to the taciturn George: “‘ Yas queen’ is a major slogan for the gays and the brunch-going ladies of the nations of the world .”
