As the Netflix reality show returns, its adepts descend on the rural Australian city of Yass to record a mini chapter and explain the secrets of their gargantuan success
Jonathan Van Ness screams- and then starts crying. The Queer Eye wizard is sitting in a gondola on a cattle farm in the urban Australian township of Yass, New South Wales. As the tears stream down his face, he begins filming himself on his phone.
” I just 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 pops his head into frame:” Oh, Michelle ,” he coos, tenderly scratching his friend’s limb.” You constituted our baby’s dream 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 devotees of the reality show been fucking loving Van Ness( his inexhaustible exaggeration ), but too the whole cast’s feelgood earnestness, the exuberance they take in each other and their eagerness to play up every charming moment and cast it straight-from-the-shoulder to social media.
Van Ness( 31, the grooming expert ), Brown( 37, culture ), Antoni Porowski( 34, food ), 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 neighbourhood farmer, George, and a pub. The orientation was selected thanks to the pun: as Van Ness explains to the taciturn George: “‘ Yas queen’ is a major motto for the lesbians and the brunch-going ladies of the world .”
