It's Time to Meet the Queens of 'RuPaul's Drag Race: UK!'
Are you ready?
Step aside, America. It’s finally time to reveal the fabulous queens of the all new RuPaul’s Drag Race UK !
The cast was announced earlier today in a 17 minute “Meet the Queens” video where you can get to know a little bit about all the competitors. But we’ll tell you this already — this is going to be one hell of a competition.
\u201cOur #DragRaceUK queens are coming to iPlayer this October. Stay tuned for more fun exclusives this week. \n\n@Divinadecampo\n@TheOnlyVinegar\n@crystalwillseeu\n@thevivienneuk\n@CherylHoleQueen\n@BluHydrangea_ \n@issumtingwong\n@the_scaredy_kat\n@ChipShopBird\n@gothykendoll\u201d— RuPaul's Drag Race UK (@RuPaul's Drag Race UK) 1566376267
The queens making up the show’s UK debut are Baga Chipz, Blu Hydrangea, Crystal, Cheryl Hole, Divina De Campo, Gothy Kendoll, Sum Ting Wong, Scaredy Kat, The Vivienne, and Vinegar Strokes. Those of us on the other side of the pond may not recognize their names just yet, but we’ve no doubt there will be some worldwide icons among them by the time the game is done.
And of course, we’ve also got a whole new crop of celebrity judges to look forward to with a whole new RPDR . Among them: the artist formerly known as Ginger Spice, ex-web slinging superhero Andrew Garfield, Game of Thrones' Maisie Williams, and iconic model Twiggy herself.
Ru’s latest drag queens will be making an appearance at Manchester Pride this coming Saturday, and will later sashay on over to New York for DragCon in early December.
“Each of the U.K. queens is so unique, so courageous and so special,” Mama Ru said of her new girls. “I can’t wait for the UK—and the world—to fall in love with them the same way I did.”
The show itself will be gracing BBC Three in October …and hopefully the non-British among us won’t have to wait too much longer for our own look at what is already promising to be a spectacular inaugural season of RPDR UK .
