Are you prepared to gag on Thailand’s ELEGANZA?
Yaaas squirrel friends! Drag Race Thailand has released its first gag-worthy super-trailer for its highly-anticipated first season, and we are living!
In the trailer, we see the queens entering their workroom, becoming acquainted with the other contestants, sashaying down the runway, as per, all to the beat of Ru’s dance-anthem Sissy That Walk.
Just to refresh your memory, the queens in the RuPaul’s Drag Race spin-off are as follows: Dearis Doll, 30; Natalia Piarcam, 37; Amadiva, 24; Bunny Be Fly, 25; Année Maywong, 30; Petchara, 30; Meannie Minaj, 26; JAJA, 34; Morrigan, 18, and B Ella, 30 (for promotional photos of all the queens, click here).
Are you prepared to gag on their eleganza? Watch them werrrrrrk in the trailer below.
Stylist and designer Art Arya will take on Ru’s role as host of the show, alongside Bangkok queen Pangina Heals – who will act as co-host.
Fenton Bailey of World of Wonder said: “We’re totally excited about Drag Race Thailand. Drag is part of the Thai culture, in some ways more than it has been in the US, historically speaking. Even though they are following the format, I want them to bring their own inimitable style and characteristics.”
On comparisons with the original version, Bailey said: “They should being their own creativity, uniqueness, nerve, and talent. And I think they are doing that!”
He continued: “Thailand’s known as ’the land of smiles, and that’s perfect… because, ultimately, joy is in the DNA of Drag Race.”
While we *patiently* wait, take a look at the trailer for RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 3 – starring fan favourites such as Trixie Mattel, Milk, Kennedy Davenport, Chi Chi DeVayne and BenDeLaCreme.
All Stars 3 premieres on VH1 in the U.S. on 25 January, and Comedy Central in the UK on 27 January.
