RuPaul’s Drag Race: UK Versus the World
Announcing the UK as the host city for the program, Rupaul will air RuPaul’s Drag Race: UK Versus the World next year.
As the program was filmed in the UK the entire UK judging panel will return.
This will include Graham Norton, Alan Carr, Michelle Visage and of course Rupaul.
Whilst details are scarce so far we know that RuPaul’s Drag Race: UK Versus the World will see 9 queens compete for the title.
This would give the opportunity for contestants from UK, US, Canada, Thailand, Australia, Spain and Holland a chance to compete.
However the rumoured cast for the show reveals some missed opportunities from some of the shows best franchises.
Who will compete?
While nothing has been confirmed the internet is of course rife with speculation about who will compete.
This will be the international olympics of Drag Race and the rumoured cast is going to make things interesting.
