Another worldwide RuPaul’s Drag Race competition is set to rock TV once more. With Canada becoming the host country this season, several returning queens will sashay in the runway, bearing the ultimate goal to snatch the crown.
Canada’s Drag Race: Canada Vs. the World is marks the second installment of Vs. The World sub-franchise. This international smackdown will be hosted by Brooke Lynn Hytes who will also be part of the judging panel alongside Brad Goreski and Traci Melchor. As usual, celebrity guest judges will be present in the panel, but no names have been announced yet.
In this six-part series, nine Drag Race favorites will attempt to showcase their best fashion and talent forward, in hopes of claiming the glamorous title. With that, these are the drag divas that we must expect in this season.
1. Anita Wigl’it
New Zealand drag performer, Anita Wigl’it is one of the co-hosts and judges of House of Drag. They later joined Drag Race Down Under and placed eighth overall. Now, this 32-year-old queen cannot wait to “Wigl’it’ into the hearts and trousers of Canada.”

3. Kendall Gender
Kendall Gender is not taking it easy this time, getting a closer sight of the crown during Canada’s Drag Race season two. Obsessed with pop culture, the 31-year-old believes that gender is a construct, as implied in her drag name.
