In a Drag Race twist, RuPaul may have just cast the first queen for season 17 in front of a live audience.

On 10 March, Mama Ru was hosting the latest date of her ‘The House of Hidden Meanings’ book tour in Atlanta, Georgia.

In a video that is circulating online, Hormona Lisa can be seen looking pretty in pink in full drag at the front of the audience talking to Ru.

The queen appears to explain that she had previously applied to be on the Emmy-winning drag show.

“Well we will just have to get you on!” Ru then tells an ecstatic crowd.

The Tennessee queen then says: “I have my [audition] tape on a flash drive in my purse if you want it?”

Under the queen’s most recent Instagram picture, someone has already made their prediction for the outcome of season 17: “Took a pic with you at RuPaul’s event in Atlanta. My season 17 winner!”

Hormona took to her Instagram story to commemorate the moment. She shared a snap of herself and Ru at the front of the stage alongside the words, “Did not anticipate RuPaul bringing me up to the stage at the Atlanta stop of her book tour ‘The House of Hidden Meaning’.”

Also in attendance at the event was Ts Madison, who gave a heartfelt speech during the evening about her relationship with Ru.

Prior to this, in another viral clip, Madison jokingly issued a warning to Hormona about who she really needs to impress: “Now Hormona we are going to see if you survive Michelle.”

Although there is no official confirmation whether Hormona will appear on the 17th season, when the tentative news broke on Reddit fans were quick to react.

One said: “Yesss I was there too! She was the only one in drag and Ru called her up which wasn’t too surprising but then he said she’s cast and my jaw dropped.”

Another added: “OMG! I know her. So happy for her!!! She used to post on the drag subreddit and was trying to get on the show for years. She’s sickening and a great seamstress!”

We will just have to keep our eyes peeled for an official announcement.
