RuPaul’s Drag Race is big budget business these days. There are multiple iterations all around the world — when we announced the news that Brooke Lynn Hytes would judge Canada’s Drag Race, we counted seven different shows — conventions, and tons of spin-offs. The show is a phenom that launches careers, and that tons of mainstream celebrities are infatuated with. But it wasn’t always that way.
Though Drag Race began to get a major boost around season six and seven, to be boosted again later when it moved from Logo to VH1 for season 10, it certainly had its humble beginning.s In fact, seasons one through three were a bit … raw, if you ask us. Well, if you missed them — or just wanted a reminder — you’re in luck!
This weekend Drag Race seasons one through six have all been uploaded to Hulu! Yes, you read that right. An on-demand streaming platform, will finally have the show in the US. In addition, five seasons of Untucked and the first season of All Stars made the cut. It feels like we’ve waited so long for this.
It was just weeks ago that the show was added to Pluto TV’s line-up. There, Drag Race has its own channel, populated with the show’s first five seasons. That said, it’s a streaming channel, so you aren’t able to select which episode you would like to watch like you can on Hulu.
We aren’t exactly sure what’s going on at chez World of Wonder. It seems like they are steadily making more and more of the show available. In April they made over 125 scenes from the show available on YouTube. We certainly are not complaining though!
We’ll just have to slot it around watching Drag Race U.K.’s debut season on Logo.
