Three of the queen’s reign from London, England, including Baga Chipz, Vinegar Strokes, and Crystal. Other queens come from all over England, including The Vivienne, who is from Liverpool, Cheryl Hole from Essex, Sum Ting Wong from Birmingham, Davina De Campo from West Yorkshire, Gothy Kendoll from Leicester, and Scaredy Kat from Wiltshire.
There is only one queen from outside of England: Blu Hydrangea, who comes from Belfast in Northern Ireland.
The age of this season’s queens ranges from 35 to 20. The 20-year-old queen and student Scaredy Cat is actually the youngest of any queen to star on the show.
The original reality competition show Rupaul’s Drag Race aired in 2009 and currently has 11 complete seasons. It is set in America but airs on international television. American drag queen icon RuPaul is the host, head judge, and mentor for the show.
Mama Ru has made a trip across the pond in search for a queen with the most charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent in all the land.

RuPaul will continue as the main host for the UK edition of the show. The queens of this season will bring very diverse styles, from the dark inspirations of Gothy Kendoll to Cheryl Hole’s showgirl glam. The show will premiere on the BBC Three section of BBC iPlayer in Oct. 2019.
