Drag Race Canada is back–with a twist!
Fans are being treated with a Canada’s Drag Race: Canada s The World spin off. The new addition will feature nine queens from various iterations of the Drag Race show to compete against Canadian queens.
What’s the prize? The crowning of “Queen of the Mother-Tucking World!”
Current Canada’s Drag Race judges Brooke Lynn Hytes, Brad Goreski, and Traci Melchor will all return to the panel for this special competition, joined by to-be-announced celebrity guest judges.
This marks the second entry in Drag Race‘s “Vs. the World” sub-franchise. The first being Drag Race UK Vs. the World which aired earlier this year. In the UK version, Blu Hydrangea took home the crown.
Meet the nine lucky queens vying for a chance at the crown and title of “Queen of the Mother-Tucking World.”
New Zealand-born Anita Wigl’it made quite an impression during her run on season one of RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under. She even scored the unofficial title of “Miss Congeniality.” This year, she’s back ready to the coveted crown.
“I can’t wait to ‘Wigl’it’ into the hearts and trousers of Canada!”
Canada’s Drag Race contestant and season 1 winner, Icesis Couture is back on the runway. Here to prove that she has the uniquness, nerve and talent to snatch the crown once again.
This round, Icesis ensures fans she has a few tricks up her sleeve.
“Just when you thought you’ve seen it all, wait until you see me balancing two crowns on my wig!”
Originally making her mark on season two of Canada’s Drag Race, Kendall Gender was a fan favorite during her season. In fact, the Vancouver based queen ultimately placed 2nd/3rd in her time on the show.
“I was so close to snatching the crown on my season and now I’m here to reign. That Kendall reign won’t let up!”
US queen, Ra’jah is known for her debut on RuPaul’s Drag Race season 11.
In the end, she would place 9th overall. Later, O’Hara went on to compete on Drag Race Allstars where she ultimatley placed runner up.
“When in doubt, I always groove it out!”
French Canadian drag star Rita Baga was the runner-up in Canada's Drag Race Season 1. She is also known as the host of Drag Race Belgique. Now, Baga is vying at a chance of winning Canada vs The World. Does she have what it takes?
“Rita Baga is the 5 F’s – fierce, French, famous, fun and fungus!”
Silky Nutmeg Ganache
Originally, on season 11 of RuPaul’s Drag Race, Silky proves she is a great performer. So much so, that she was asked to come back for Allstars 6. Now, she’s back for a third time with a chance to prove she has what it takes to be crowned “Queen of the Mother-Tucking World.”
“Drag Queens have bridged that gap historically by being the worlds’ sister, auntie, cousin, mother, friend, therapist, fashion eye, confident, fundraiser, voice, reason, mediator, entertainer, and inspiration. Throughout history and still to this very day, the job has not gotten easier; however, I do feel that I can continue this legacy with the crown.”
Filipino Canadian drag queen Stephanie Prince first appeared in season two of Canada’s Drag Race. While was’t able to take home the prize that round, Prince proves you can’t keep a good thing down.
“In Season 2, they were jealous of my beauty. This season, they will be jealous of my beauty and looks, because she’s what?…Cor-rect!”
Despite making a splash on Drag Race UK season three, Vanity Milan was eliminated during the ninth episode, ultimately ranking fourth for her season. Now, she’s back for revenge and a shot at the coveted crown!
“Black, proud and stunning! My drag journey has always been about inclusivity and empowerment for our communities. And that’s on what? Period!”
Viewers will surely remember Victoria as the first cisgender woman to take part in any RuPaul's Drag Race iteration. However, Victoria was forced to step away from the rest of the competition after an injury.
“In my original season, you only got the crumbs, but now you’ll get the whole buffet.”
Canada’s Drag Race: Canada Vs. the World premieres Friday, Nov. 18 (9/8c) on WOW Presents Plus in the US.
