Are you prepared to gag on Thailand’s eleganza?
Earlier this week the full cast list for Drag Race Thailand’s highly-anticipated first season was ru-vealed – which left us gagging – and now our hype for the show has reached an all-time high with the release of the first trailer.
The trailer introduces us to all the fierce competitors, who 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.
Can we get a “YAS KWEEN” or a “COME THRUUUUUU” in the vein of Violet Chachki?
Stylist and designer Art Arya will take on Ru’s role as host of the show, alongside Bangkok queen Pangina Heals (both pictured above in the middle) – 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.”
Earlier this month, we were given a sneak-peek of Drag Race Thailand’s logo, runway and workroom, and hunties, it looks ah-mah-zeng, and doesn’t stray too far from the original version. See here.
While we 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.
