As the Netflix reality show returns, its stars descend on the urban Australian city of Yass to record a mini episode and explain the secrets of their enormous success
Jonathan Van Ness screams- and then starts crying. The Queer Eye superstar is sitting in a car on a cattle farm in the rural Australian township of Yass, New South Wales. As the tears stream down his face, he begins filming himself on his phone.
” I only found out Michelle Kwan followed me on Instagram and lost my mind ,” he tells his followers- 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 prepared our baby’s dream come true !”
The resulting post, which has had almost 1m thoughts at the time of preparation of, is solid Queer Eye content, encapsulating not only what fans of the reality show been fucking loving Van Ness( his inexhaustible exaggeration ), but also the whole cast’s feelgood earnestness, the rapture they take in each other and their eagerness to play up every charming moment and send it straight-out to social media.
Van Ness( 31, the prepare expert ), Brown( 37, culture ), Antoni Porowski( 34, food ), Bobby Berk( 36, layout) and Tan France( 35, mode) 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 inn. 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 world .”
