As the Netflix reality show returns, its stars descend on the rural Australian municipality of Yass to record a mini occurrence and explain the secrets of their gigantic success
Jonathan Van Ness screams- and then starts crying. The Queer Eye ace is sitting in a car on a cattle farm in the urban Australian city of Yass, New South Wales. As the rips stream down his face, he begins filming himself on his phone.
” I precisely found out Michelle Kwan followed me on Instagram and lost my mind ,” he tells his adherents- close 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 chassis:” Oh, Michelle ,” he coos, tenderly scratching his friend’s arm.” You realized our baby’s dream come true !”
The resulting post, which has had almost 1m looks at the time of writing, is solid Queer Eye content, encapsulating not only what fans of the reality show love about Van Ness( his inexhaustible extravagance ), but also the whole cast’s feelgood earnestness, the pleasure they take in each other and their eagerness to play up every charming moment and transport it directly to social media.
Van Ness( 31, the grooming expert ), Brown( 37, culture ), Antoni Porowski( 34, nutrient ), Bobby Berk( 36, design) 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 inn. The site was selected thanks to the pun: as Van Ness interprets to the taciturn George: “‘ Yas queen’ is a major motto for the gays and the brunch-going ladies of the world .”
