As the Netflix reality show returns, its hotshots 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 auto 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 precisely 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 chafing his friend’s limb.” You stirred our baby’s dream come true !”
The resulting post, which has had almost 1m considers at the time of writing, is solid Queer Eye content, encapsulating not only what fans of the reality show love about Van Ness( his inexhaustible folly ), but also the whole cast’s feelgood earnestness, the delight they take in each other and their eagerness to play up every charming moment and move it straight to social media.
Van Ness( 31, the prepare expert ), Brown( 37, culture ), Antoni Porowski( 34, food ), Bobby Berk( 36, pattern) 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 saloon. The site was selected thanks to the pun: as Van Ness shows to the taciturn George: “‘ Yas queen’ is a major motto for the gays and the brunch-going ladies of the world .”
