Well ladies, only a few episodes into RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars season five and we are already in full Canada's Drag Race roll out. Having already announced its queen, the debut season of the new show has just releaed its first full trailer, complete with guest judges, and a peek into the competition.
"After many years of dreaming, it's official," Ru intones on the trailer — though she may not be in the Canadian Werk Room, she's still apparently doing voiceovers! "We're looking for Canada's First Drag Superstar. Oooooh Canada, start your engines."
The trailer serves up more of the show's trademark shady one-liners. It's all extremely fine! Our personal favorite?
"These queens should be afraid of me because they're here because of me," Tynomi Banks said. Well! Let's see about that. A close runner up?
"I am the queen of social media," Kyne said. And it's true that she is certainly a viral sensation. "I've taught 100,000 people how to do drag in my videos, and I'm here to teach 11 more."
Outside of all the boasting, the trailer also previews the lineup of guest judges. Pulling out at the top of our list are Michelle Visage and Deborah Cox. They join the squad alongside BIDDELL, Amanda Brugel, Elisha Cuthbert, Tom Green, Jade Hassoune, Traci Melchor, Mary Walsh, and Allie X. The judging panel is anchored by Brooke Lynn Hytes, Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman, and Stacey McKenzie.
We get a peek at the expectedly sexy Canadia Pit Crew — are they going to have a name like the Brit Crew — and even a cameo from RuPaul's Drag Race U.K's Crystal, who is actually Canadian. Canada's Drag Race will debut on Crave in Canada as well as on Wow Presents Plus in the US and select territories on July 2. The show will air on BBC Three in the UK beginning July 3.
