As the Netflix reality show returns, its virtuosoes descend on the urban Australian town of Yass to record a mini escapade and explain the secrets of their enormous success
Jonathan Van Ness screechings- and then starts crying. The Queer Eye adept is sitting in a vehicle on a cattle farm in the urban Australian township of Yass, New South Wales. As the rips stream down his face, he begins filming himself on his phone.
” I merely found out Michelle Kwan came me on Instagram and lost my mind ,” he tells his adherents- 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 chassis:” Oh, Michelle ,” he coos, tenderly rubbing his friend’s arm.” You induced our baby’s fantasy 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 love of the reality show been fucking loving Van Ness( his inexhaustible exaggeration ), but also the whole cast’s feelgood earnestness, the exultation they take in each other and their eagerness to play up every charming moment and transport it straight to social media.
Van Ness( 31, the grooming expert ), Brown( 37, culture ), Antoni Porowski( 34, nutrient ), Bobby Berk( 36, layout) 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 local farmer, George, and a pub. The place was selected thanks to the pun: as Van Ness shows to the taciturn George: “‘ Yas queen’ is a major motto for the homosexuals and the brunch-going ladies of the nations of the world .”
