World of Wonder Confirms ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race: UK Versus The World’
At this point, we’ve seen RuPaul’s Drag Race in almost every country with loads of different drag queens. This new United Kingdom based spin-off of RuPaul’s Drag Race will feature nine of the series alumni, including queens from both the U.S. and U.K. to compete for the title of Ultimate Drag Race Superstar.
The stakes are definitely high for this upcoming series since the queens will be in an international arena. RuPaul Charles will host RuPaul’s Drag Race: UK Versus the world. Regular judges Michelle Visage, Alan Carr, and Graham Norton will sit on the judging panel for this series.
RuPaul’s Drag Race: UK Versus The World will premiere on BBC3 in the United Kingdom. This is one of the first series announced for the network in their return to linear television. In the past, BBC3 has aired three seasons of RuPaul’s Drag Race U.K., which was extremely popular on their platform. World of Wonder productions has confirmed this series is just as good as it sounds.
