RuPaul has shared his thoughts on RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under in a candid new interview with Graham Norton on his talk show.
In Auckland last month, Ru wrapped filming on season two of the Australia-New Zealand version of the show, before it airs later in the year.
And discussing the series with RuPaul’s Drag Race UK judge Graham Norton on his talk show, Ru described the Aussie and Kiwi queens as “very different” to their international sisters.
Asked by Norton about the size of the new season’s studio, Ru replied, “It’s the size of a garage, the studio.
“But you’d never know it and we still have fun with the girls.
“It’s a different type, Australian and Down Under queens are very different but it’s so much fun.
RuPaul went on, “They’re a little bit more – I’m going to get in trouble for this – they’re a little more ratchet.
“Which is great. Because I’m married to an Australian and Australians have a great sense of humour.
“That’s really what it’s all about. We have so much fun.”
