As the Netflix reality show returns, its stars descend on the urban Australian township of Yass to record a mini chapter and explain the secrets of their immense success
Jonathan Van Ness screams- and then starts crying. The Queer Eye wizard is sitting in a car on a cattle farm in the rural Australian town of Yass, New South Wales. As the snaps stream down his face, he begins filming himself on his phone.
” I simply 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 latest of whom is the retired Olympian figure skater.
His co-star Karamo Brown poppings his head into frame:” Oh, Michelle ,” he coos, tenderly rubbing his friend’s limb.” You saw our baby’s dream is true !”
The resulting post, which has had almost 1m deems at the time of writing, is solid Queer Eye content, encapsulating not only what fans of the reality show been fucking loving Van Ness( his inexhaustible exaggeration ), but too the whole cast’s feelgood earnestness, the pleasure 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 train expert ), Brown( 37, culture ), Antoni Porowski( 34, nutrient ), Bobby Berk( 36, intend) 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 neighbourhood farmer, George, and a saloon. The point was selected thanks to the pun: as Van Ness excuses to the taciturn George: “‘ Yas queen’ is a major motto for the gays and the brunch-going ladies of the nations of the world .”
