entertainment tonight

Ouuuuu sis it is ON! The official announcement for the queens involved in Canada’s Drag Race Season 1 just dropped today and it does not disappoint. If you’ve never watched the original RuPaul’s Drag Race lemme give you a quick rundown…drag queens compete for a shot at $100,000 dollars, they do various types of competitions, the tea is piping, of course the shade is in abundance and there is NEVER a dull moment. Oh…and you get to be crowned as winner of the season and live on as drag royalty forever. The judges for Drag Race Canada include Brooke Lynn Hytes (RuPaul's Drag Race season 11 runner-up), Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman and Stacey McKenzie. Now let’s get to these amazingly talented queens, the 12 queens across Canada consist of Anastarzia Anaquway (Toronto, ON), BOA (Toronto, ON), Ilona Verley (Vancouver, BC), Jimbo (Victoria, BC), Juice Boxx (Toronto, ON), Kiara (Montréal, QC), Kyne (Kitchener-Waterloo, ON), Lemon (New York City, NY via Toronto, ON), Priyanka (Toronto, ON), Rita Baga (Montréal, QC), Scarlett BoBo (Toronto, ON) and Tynomi Banks (Toronto, ON). Personally, I’ve had the privilege of seeing a few of these queens live and oh man are they ever amazing. Canada is in for a treat! The season premieres Thursday July 2nd on CRAVE.

 

I don't know about you but I am shook and READY for this!
