As the Netflix reality show returns, its whizs descend on the urban Australian township of Yass to record a mini episode and explain the secrets of their huge success
Jonathan Van Ness screams- and then starts crying. The Queer Eye hotshot is sitting in a gondola on a cattle farm in the rural Australian town of Yass, New South Wales. As the weepings 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 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 dads his head into frame:” Oh, Michelle ,” he coos, tenderly rubbing his friend’s forearm.” You drew our baby’s dream come true !”
The resulting post, which has had almost 1m positions at the time of, is solid Queer Eye content, encapsulating not only what devotees of the reality show love about Van Ness( his inexhaustible folly ), 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 cast it straight-out to social media.
Van Ness( 31, the train expert ), Brown( 37, culture ), Antoni Porowski( 34, meat ), Bobby Berk( 36, motif) and Tan France( 35, manner) 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 locating was selected thanks to the pun: as Van Ness explains to the taciturn George: “‘ Yas queen’ is a major motto for the homosexuals and the brunch-going ladies of the world .”
