As the Netflix reality show returns, its virtuosoes descend on the urban Australian city of Yass to record a mini escapade and explain the secrets of their enormous success
Jonathan Van Ness screams- and then starts crying. The Queer Eye wizard is sitting in a automobile on a cattle farm in the rural Australian township of Yass, New South Wales. As the rends stream down his face, he begins filming himself on his phone.
” I merely 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 latest 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 obliged our baby’s dream is true !”
The resulting post, which has had almost 1m viewpoints at the time of preparation of, is solid Queer Eye content, encapsulating not only what followers of the reality show love about Van Ness( his inexhaustible exaggeration ), but also the whole cast’s feelgood earnestness, the joyfulnes they take in each other and their eagerness to play up every charming moment and move it straight-shooting to social media.
Van Ness( 31, the grooming expert ), Brown( 37, culture ), Antoni Porowski( 34, food ), Bobby Berk( 36, designing) and Tan France( 35, fashion) 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 clarifies to the taciturn George: “‘ Yas queen’ is a major motto for the gays and the brunch-going ladies “of the worlds” .”
