As the Netflix reality show returns, its wizards descend on the urban Australian municipality 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 ace is sitting in a automobile on a cattle farm in the urban Australian municipality of Yass, New South Wales. As the snaps 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 frame:” Oh, Michelle ,” he coos, tenderly scratching his friend’s limb.” You became our baby’s dream come true !”
The resulting post, which has had almost 1m judgments at the time of, is solid Queer Eye content, encapsulating not only what fans of the reality show been fucking loving Van Ness( his inexhaustible folly ), but also the whole cast’s feelgood earnestness, the exultation they take in each other and their eagerness to play up every charming moment and send it straight to social media.
Van Ness( 31, the train expert ), Brown( 37, culture ), Antoni Porowski( 34, food ), Bobby Berk( 36, designing) and Tan France( 35, pattern) 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 site was selected thanks to the pun: as Van Ness justifies to the taciturn George: “‘ Yas queen’ is a major slogan for the lesbians and the brunch-going ladies of the nations of the world .”
