Hot off the high heels of RuPaul’s Drag Race’s four Emmy wins (including Outstanding Reality-Competition Program!), Crave announced today the superfab panel of judges presiding over Season 1 of its new original series Canada’s Drag Race.
For the herstorical first season, drag artists will have to slay the Drag Racestage in front of dynamic and diverse panel of judges, including uber-popular Season 11 fan fave Brooke Lynn Hytes; actor and activist, Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman; and model, runway coach, and America’s Next Top Model mentor Stacey McKenzie. Additionally, ETalk Senior Correspondent Traci Melchor joins the series with a heavy dose of fabulousness, as Canada’s very first Squirrel Friend.
“I’m thrilled to reveal my hand-picked judges for CANADA’S DRAG RACE. By the power vested in me, I command them to go forth and be my ‘Judge Judys’ of the North,” said RuPaul. “I have complete confidence in their ability to choose Canada’s first drag superstar!”
“Condragulations to my Canadians Queens!,” said Brooke Lynn Hytes “I’m so excited as the time has finally come for the world to see the talent that Canada has to offer. Start those engines…and may the best Queen win!”
“I am beyond thrilled to be part of bringing this cultural phenomenon up north!” said Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman. “I cannot wait to see what the upcoming legendary Canadian Queens are going to serve to bring the house down boots!!!”
“I am super excited to be a part of the Canadian Drag Race family, and I can’t wait to see our Queens serve and kill it on the runway!” said Stacey McKenzie. “This is a chance for us to showcase Canada’s unique brand of voice, personality, and presence.”
