You've seen the queens of RuPaul's B
est Friend's Drag Race werk, slay, death drop, and lip sync for their lives, but now you can see them spill their tea on All Stars candidates while relaxing in the urban jungle's very own patio back yard. A new web series on YouTube called Andre Gardens follows host Andre Morris as he invites guests (who so far have included notable RPDR alum, like Ru's Peppermint, Bob the Drag Queen, Phi Phi O'Hara, and Jiggly Caliente) to his NYC backyard garden for some good food and quality time away from the lights of the mainstage.
"I work with the drag queens who've been on the show. Every day is different and exciting. I also wanted to showcase another side of the queens. Fans know they can lip sync, perform, sew, etc., so I wanted to show off their cooking skills!" says Morris. "I was inspired by a love of gardening, cooking, BBQ, and DIY crafts. I wanted to combine that love with celebrity guests, which lead me to create, Andre Gardens. My mother has a green thumb so I inherited that trait. I really want to inspire people living in small apartments, to grow their own vegetables and herbs. Its easier than many think."
In the most recent episode, season 8 winner Bob and season 9 runner-up Peppermint weighed-in on their top picks for the forthcoming All Stars 3, including Trixie Mattel, Kim Chi, Victoria "Porkchop" Parker, Nina Flowers, Ivy Winters, Leila McQueen, Merle Ginsberg (as a judge), and Santino Rice (as a judge or contestant).
