The queens are ready to take over the universe. Paramount+ debuted the new RuPaul Drag Race spin-off Queen of the Universe on Dec 2. Watch as these queens meet for the first time in all of their glory.

First, Brazil’s very own Grag Queen walks onto the scene. In true fashion, the diva is decked out in a bright attention-grabbing Lady GaGa-inspired gown. It was only a matter of time before the other queens joined in. Chy’enne Valentina walks in and wonders where the drinks are. The two hit it off right away.

The other queens follow in shortly. Woowu, Gingzilla, Novaczar, Betty Bitschkap, and Leona Winter all embrace each other. It was a cute moment, but after all it is a competition. Let’s be real, they were sizing each other up.

The first-ever Queen of the Universe contestants know the opportunity before them cannot be missed, as they discuss what makes this competition so special. The initial encounter has Chy’enne reminded of how far those from their community have come. “The door has been open, and I am busting through,” she proclaims in her confessional.


‘Queen of the Universe’ Brings Global Drag Queens Onto One Stage

“I’m happy we will be together sharing our voices for the world. That is what I am excited about,” Australian contestant Gingzilla says. “All of these unique perspectives in one space. What more could you want.”

Gingzilla expresses the sentiment that fans share in seeing drag queens from all around the world. This competition will have the contestants performing songs live, no lip-syncing. This is the major difference from the original Drag Race where you have to lip-sync for your life.

In the video, Novaczar comes in “hot and ready,” which is a different attitude than how our other Season 1 contestants came in the room. The performer is from New York City, so no surprise there.

As their time together continues, the queens discuss everything from language barriers to “tucking” methods and what each of them would do with their prize money. The excitement is felt through the screen as audiences watch these queen’s dreams come true.

Queen of the Universe is available for streaming on Paramount+ every Thursday. Be sure to watch these contestants sing and strut for the chance to be the ultimate queen.
