As the Netflix reality show returns, its superstars descend on the rural Australian city of Yass to record a mini episode and explain the secrets of their gargantuan success
Jonathan Van Ness screams- and then starts crying. The Queer Eye star is sitting in a car on a cattle farm in the urban Australian municipality of Yass, New South Wales. As the rips stream down his face, he begins filming himself on his phone.
” I simply 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 latest of whom is the retired Olympian figure skater.
His co-star Karamo Brown daddies his head into chassis:” Oh, Michelle ,” he coos, tenderly scratching his friend’s limb.” You reached our baby’s dream come true !”
The resulting post, which has had almost 1m views at the time of writing this report, is solid Queer Eye content, encapsulating not only what followers of the reality show love about Van Ness( his inexhaustible exaggeration ), but likewise 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, meat ), Bobby Berk( 36, intend) 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 tavern. The site was selected thanks to the pun: as Van Ness excuses to the taciturn George: “‘ Yas queen’ is a major slogan for the homosexuals and the brunch-going ladies “of the worlds” .”
