As the Netflix reality show returns, its adepts descend on the rural Australian township of Yass to record a mini chapter and explain the secrets of their huge success
Jonathan Van Ness screams- and then starts crying. The Queer Eye stellar is sitting in a gondola on a cattle farm in the rural Australian city 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 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 pas his head into frame:” Oh, Michelle ,” he coos, tenderly chafing his friend’s forearm.” You saw our baby’s dream is true !”
The resulting post, which has had almost 1m positions at the time of writing, is solid Queer Eye content, encapsulating not only what love of the reality show been fucking loving Van Ness( his inexhaustible folly ), but likewise the whole cast’s feelgood earnestness, the rapture they take in each other and their eagerness to play up every charming moment and communicate it straight-out to social media.
Van Ness( 31, the grooming expert ), Brown( 37, culture ), Antoni Porowski( 34, food ), Bobby Berk( 36, motif) and Tan France( 35, style) 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 saloon. The spot was selected thanks to the pun: as Van Ness illustrates to the taciturn George: “‘ Yas queen’ is a major slogan for the lesbians and the brunch-going ladies of the nations of the world .”
