We are GAGGING hunties…
Last week we ru-vealed the hosts of Thailand’s RuPaul’s Drag Race spin-off, and now we have the full cast list for its highly-anticipated first season.
Just to refresh your memory, stylist and designer Art Arya will host the show alongside Bangkok queen Pangina Heals (both picture above in the middle) – who will co-host in a Michelle Visage type role.
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.”
Take a look at the ten fierce queens below.

3. Amadiva, 24
4. Bunny Be Fly, 25 (@bunnism)
5. Année Maywong, 30

Are you gagging or are you GAGGING?!
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.
