RuPaul brings Drag Race across the pond with the inaugural season of RuPaul's Drag Race UK. The show will be hosted by RuPaul Charles, and will be judged by Alan Carr, Michelle Visage, and Graham Norton — along with a rotating roster of guest judges, including Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams, Andrew Garfield, and The Spice Girls' Geri Horner. But of course, the stars of the show are the queens competing for the crown.
Out of all the drag queens all over the United Kingdom, 10 were selected to star in the show: Baga Chipz, Blu Hydrangea, Crystal, Cheryl Hole, Divina De Campo, Gothy Kendoll, Sum Ting Wong, Scaredy Kat, The Vivienne, and Vinegar Strokes. Each has their own distinct style, and of course their own personalities, strengths, and weaknesses audiences will begin to see once the show airs on October 3rd on the BBC and on WOW Presents Plus.
For now, see the gallery below for a sneak preview.
Crystal is 34 years old, and originally came from Canada, but is 100% British as she's been living in London for 10 years now with dual citizenship because of her British mother. She's a "gender bending, 'mess with your brain' kinda drag queen" who doesn't allow the gender binary to restrict her creativity in terms of her makeup, fashion, and performances. She certainly isn't afraid of showing some chest hair.
Watch the queens speak for themselves in the video, below.
