Mama Ru is coming for you, unless you live in Houston! RuPaul’s Drag Race is returning with a court of queens so ingenious, a competition so unpredictable and a judges’ panel so packed with talent, you’ll be seeing stars…. sorta.. with the Houston smog.
Sadly you will not see a ‘Drag Star’ from Houston this season. Once again, the popular ‘Drag Race’ did not pick a contestant from the fourth largest city in America.
This will be the eighth season that Houston was passed over for the opportunity to parade our talent to the world.
Last year several LGBT+ venues spent large amounts of money to bring RuPaul Drag Race contenders to Houston, ‘parading’ these talented gals to our dedicated community.
Maybe Houston is a better city to showcase then produce? Highly doubtful, as Houston’s drag community has been considered one of the best in the nation! Maybe Houston will have better luck next year??!!
Regardless, the new season is filled with talent from around the country, including the spicy Kim Chi from Chicago, Naysha Lopez, and bizarre “fashion clown” Thorgy Thor from Brooklyn.
You’ll see the 12 new queens vying for the title of America’s best fake crier.
The premiere celebrates the 100th episode and 100th queen on Monday, March 7, 2016 at 9PM ET/PT. Off with their wigs! You can get to know the contestants better in this little meet-and-greet video.
