Getting Curious With Jonathan Van Ness Trailer Teases A Quest For Knowledge

Queer Eye‘s Jonathan Van Ness is taking us on a new journey of curiosity. In a new trailer from Netflix, Getting Curious with Jonathan Van Ness looks to expand our knowledge of the world in a wild and varied way. The new series, which premieres at the end of this month, follows Van Ness as he ask questions audiences may or may not have pondered before. From exotic cuisine and insect anatomy to high fashion and skyscraper construction, the series challenges viewers to learn something outside of their comfort zone, with Van Ness speaking with experts in a variety of fields to learn more about the things that make him curious.

In the official trailer, Van Ness opens by saying he’s “got burning questions” and he’s looking for answers. Such questions include: “Why is hair so major?” and “Am I dependent on snacks?” The series will also feature some celebrity appearances, including luxury womenswear designer Christian Siriano, stand-up comedian Michelle Buteau, figure skating legend Michelle Kwan, and actress and SNL alum Rachel Dratch. The trailer goes on to feature some pretty fun shots of how our brains react to sugar, Van Ness interacting with (and eating) insects, an exploration of wigs, and some delightful camaraderie with construction workers.

Recent podcast guests include musician Brandi Carlile and actress Gabrielle Union, as well as several professionals in various areas including medicine, earthquakes, and history.
