Really? It’s time for Season 12 of RuPaul’s Drag Race? They just announced all the gals competing for the insanely popular competitive drag competition series hosted by RuPaul. Sadly, none are from the Pacific Northwest although a San Francisco queen made it through.
Judging by their photos/bios, it looks like the average age of these kids is embryo. I keed, I keed, but really, most of them are 20somethings with only 4 in their 30s.
The new series will kick-off on Friday, Feb. 28 at 8 p.m. on VH1…which is probably annoying lots of gay bar owners who would probably prefer it on a less traditionally busy bar night…bars don’t need to entice people to come in on a Friday or Saturday night, but they love anything that can help lure in customers any other night of the week!!!
According to RuPaul herself, the new season is gonna be BIG. She told Entertainment Weekly: “Our producers have come up with twisted, outrageous challenges that raise the bar for all competition of reality,” RuPaul adds. “Our celebrity guest judges are truly legendary. And this cast of queens is, dare I say, the most talented we’ve ever had. Just when you think you’ve seen it all, a fresh crop of queens arrives and blows our minds all over again.”
