The Emmy award dominating reality competition series, RuPaul’s Drag Race, is set to release the third season of its UK edition on Thursday, September 23rd. Past seasons of the UK program have produced hilarity like no other. Host RuPaul Charles, with help from judges Michelle Visage, Graham Norton, and Alan Carr, plan to keep us going with the endless content we live for.
To prepare yourself for the epic season opener, or series opener as they would say across the pond, study up on the cast list below:
Every season has a designated wacky and alternative queen. We especially cannot wait to see what she brings to the runway! RuPaul’s Drag Race season 13 fed us @queenutica, and Charity Kase seems to be vying for that spot.
Born in Spain, we are counting on Choriza May to bring all the flavor. As the winner of both Newcastle Drag Idol 2019 and Liverpool’s Big Drag Pageant, Choriza’s experience speaks for itself. We are starving for this Reina’s sausage realness!
Not to be confused with Down Under’s @therealelektrashock, Elektra Fence is campy and fearless. Elektra earned her name after accidentally electrocuting herself on, you guessed it, an electric fence (the resulting video went viral). We expect this trained dancer to sashay right into our hearts!
Ella Vaday is a talented and cheeky queen with tons of professional work in the performing industry. She is a trained actress on the West End and dancer who slayed back up to Olly Murs. Ms. Vaday is one to look out for, and with her exuberant wigs, it should not be that difficult.
Kitty Scott-Claus is a musical theater queen! She is a driven, smiley bottle of fun with high ambitions. Along with the UK season one queen @cherylholequeen, Kitty is a part of a fierce drag girl group, Gals Aloud. Overall, the camp is guaranteed, and we are here for it, of course.
Just like sister Anubis, Krystal Versace was only 19 while filming the season. However, her status as the youngest queen of the group should not discount her as a front runner. Since exploring her passion for makeup at the ripe age of 13, Krystal demonstrates artistic mastery of her appearance, and we refuse to look away.
Flow down the waters of River Medway! River is “50% white British, 50% Singaporean, and 100% a crossdresser.” She not only represents her heritage but aims to connect with queer youth everywhere. River, with that attitude, you are a winner, baby!
Scarlett Harlett is a glamor queen with a killer repertoire. Scarlett came from humble beginnings and fiercely worked her way into the film and TV industry. We expect her to live her princess fantasy and gag us all into the next century.
Serving “unapologetic blackness,” Vanity Milan is taking her confidence straight to the top. Although only beginning her drag career in 2019, Vanity has performed all around the world. We have a unique opportunity to watch her drag evolve on the show, and I have a feeling Vanity Milan will not disappoint.
She done already done had herses! Veronica Green returns to the competition after an early exit in the series’ second season. A positive Covid-19 result slayed this hilarious queen the first time around; now she is back, fiery as ever, for a rematch (ru-match??).
Further extending the bounds of traditional drag, Victoria Scone is the first cis female in the show’s history. Although the decision to include Victoria in the cast may stir up controversy and beg the question of who can participate in drag, as RuPaul states in almost every season, the only qualifications one must possess are charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent. Given her status as a long-time performer, we are ready to sit down with some lovely tea and a Victoria Scone!
Who will Bimini Bon-Bop their way to the top? You can watch RuPaul’s Drag Race UK season 3, Thursday, September 23rd at 11:00 am PT/2:00 pm ET on WOW Presents Plus and BBC Three. Now let the music play!
