As the Netflix reality show returns, its virtuosoes descend on the rural Australian municipality of Yass to record a mini chapter and explain the secrets of their massive success
Jonathan Van Ness screams- and then starts crying. The Queer Eye superstar is sitting in a automobile on a cattle farm in the urban Australian town of Yass, New South Wales. As the weepings stream down his face, he begins filming himself on his phone.
” I merely 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 pas his head into chassis:” Oh, Michelle ,” he coos, tenderly chafing his friend’s limb.” You constituted our baby’s dream come true !”
The resulting post, which has had almost 1m vistums at the time of writing, is solid Queer Eye content, encapsulating not only what followers of the reality show love about Van Ness( his inexhaustible exaggeration ), but likewise 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-out to social media.
Van Ness( 31, the train expert ), Brown( 37, culture ), Antoni Porowski( 34, food ), Bobby Berk( 36, design) 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 local farmer, George, and a tavern. The locating was selected thanks to the pun: as Van Ness explains to the taciturn George: “‘ Yas queen’ is a major slogan for the gays and the brunch-going ladies of the nations of the world .”
