Keta says: “On my season, I won three challenges, so I thought I had it in the bag, but I did not, because right before the finale, they kicked me out! I was the robbed queen, yes! But I’m back with a vengeance, and I have a burning desire to reclaim what’s rightfully mine. How’s my head, you say? I say, it’s ready for a crown darling!”

 

La Grande Dame

Age 24, representing France

La Grande Dame says: “French drag has this authenticity in creation and I want to represent that. We are very avant -garde, but guys please, I want to make something clear I’m not a fashion queen I’m the fashion killer. My runway looks are custom made, my shoes are 3D printed, and my lewks are fresh! This is what it is to be a French queen. ”

Age 41, representing United States of America

Mayhem says: “I’ve seen all the drag of the world, and the thing is, the UK has some very good drag. Just like us Americans, they’re pretty, they’re funny, they can do it all. I have not won a crown yet, but that was on purpose. Everyone thinks that she lost, but really, I was being strategic – I wanted to wait and talk on the world stage. Now, that is iconic.”

Age 31, Representing United States of America

Scarlet says: “Well, I appeared on a fairly iconic season, where I found myself asking the question ‘am I the drama’ – and it turned out I was, and that became my line that has stuck for evermore! And then they clearly liked the drama as I was asked to return to play on All Stars. Of course, I’d have liked to have gone further, I have never made it to Snatch Game and so this time round, I plan to stick around longer! My looks are insane, you’re gonna gag! I cannot wait to walk the runway.”

Age 26, representing the United Kingdom

Gothy Kendoll says: “I’m famous for being the first ever queen to be eliminated from Drag Race UK, and as Pork Chop was the first queen to be eliminated in the US, fans think of me as ‘The Pork Chop of the UK’. I think it’s quite an iconic title to hold as everyone remembers me, and, my “little roar” became a viral moment. People often roar at me in the street, so it’s worked for me. I’m now a very busy queen!”

Tia says: “I’m back again ready to slay the world. I plan to go from Baroness Basic to Queen of the Mothertucking World. I’m looking for a redemption moment for my performance on my first Drag Race season. Although I do think doing a roly poly in front of a RuPaul dressed as an ice cream cone is a moment for the history books.”

I’m a Valencian, who’s been living and working in Newcastle for a few years now, and after my debut as a drag Race UK queen, I’m very proud to be one of the UK representatives. Also, my life’s mission is to solve the world’s hunger one spicy sausage at a time.”

Jonbers says: “I think I’m bringing more of my, oh my god, I’m gonna say it, more of my authentic self. Oh! You know, I’ve had a lick of paint, I’ve been a little freshened up darling, so I thought why not show it off to the world. ”
