As the Netflix reality show returns, its idols descend on the urban Australian town of Yass to record a mini escapade and explain the secrets of their huge success
Jonathan Van Ness screams- and then starts crying. The Queer Eye adept is sitting in a car on a cattle farm in the rural Australian township of Yass, New South Wales. As the snaps stream down his face, he begins filming himself on his phone.
” I precisely found out Michelle Kwan followed me on Instagram and lost my mind ,” he tells his admirers- 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 dads his head into chassis:” Oh, Michelle ,” he coos, tenderly rubbing his friend’s limb.” You reached our baby’s dream is true !”
The resulting post, which has had almost 1m deems at the time of preparation of, is solid Queer Eye content, encapsulating not only what devotees of the reality show love about Van Ness( his inexhaustible extravagance ), but likewise the whole cast’s feelgood earnestness, the glee they take in each other and their eagerness to play up every charming moment and communicate it directly to social media.
Van Ness( 31, the train expert ), Brown( 37, culture ), Antoni Porowski( 34, meat ), 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 local farmer, George, and a pub. The location was selected thanks to the pun: as Van Ness interprets to the taciturn George: “‘ Yas queen’ is a major slogan for the homosexuals and the brunch-going ladies of the world .”
