What is ‘The Pit Stop’ you might ask? Each week Bianca and her guest will recap and review the most recent episode of RuPaul's Drag Race Season 15," the official release reads.
According to an official press release, "New episodes of The Pit Stop will premiere Saturdays on the RuPaul’s Drag Race YouTube channel."
Prominent queens like Trixie Mattel, Bob the Drag Queen, and Monet X Change have all previously hosted the series.
Fans of the show are particularly excited to see del Rio take on the role of host likely due to her quick-witted comebacks and cheeky digs. Her comedic talents are a large part of her personality which helped her make it to the winners circle.

In an interview with Varitey, Del Rio say’s, “I’m amazed at the global phenomenon that the show is.”
“This season starts with 16 queens, so it’s been amazing to map out who’s who and to keep track. It’s crazy to say, but I must admit that as cynical as I can be, I have fallen back in love with the show again. So, I might not be as nasty as I usually am. This one is really tugging on me.”
In other Bianca related news, the season six winner revealed another ‘Hurricane Bianca’ film is coming to fans, as well as a brand new Christmas animated short available via YouTube.
RuPaul's Drag Race Season 15 premieres January 6, 2023 on MTV, with The Pit Stop dropping the next day on YouTube.
