Drag Race EspaÃ±a is blowing everyone’s mind – here’s why you need to watch it immediately
The talent show episode just got 9.9 on IMDb – the highest rated in Drag Race herstory!
Hola, hola, hola! Drag Race EspaÃ±a built hype with its acclaimed first season, but season two has just premiered and it’s blowing Drag Race fans around the world’s heads clean off. The drag excellence and creativity is absolutely off the charts – and the franchise is establishing itself as one of the very best. Spain’s edition of the show is showcasing fashions off the scale and the queens are absolutely delivering. Here’s everything you need to know about Drag Race EspaÃ±a and why you should absolutely be tuning in to see what this latest cast of queens are doing to leave the world gagging.
The judges are all icons
There’s no RuPaul or Michelle judging on Drag Race EspaÃ±a – and it’s high key all the better for it! Just like Canada. Sorry to Ru and Michelle, but this new batch of judges just bring a fresher take to their critiques and it feels much more thoughtful and less storyline / producer driven. Supremme de Luxe is the host in Ru’s shoes, and she does an amazing job. Supremme is 43 year old queen from Madrid who is known in Spain for being one of the biggest drag names in the country.
Also on the panel is Ana Locking, a Spanish fashion designer. The panel is completed with Javier Ambrossi and Javier Calvo – two Spanish actors, directors and writers who created the acclaimed HBO Max show Veneno together. They’ve also been in a relationship with each other since 2010, and honestly, they’re an absolute hoot. The whole panel is iconic.
The queens do NOT fuck about – and that goes for season one and two
Season one of Drag Race EspaÃ±a was still finding its footing a bit, but was just an amazing season of television that crowned Carmen Farala as the first ever winner. Carmen is truly a force to be reckoned with, and won the crown fair and square with her gagworthy runways and unshakeable confidence. But she wasn’t without competition – the whole cast was full of likeable and talented queens who put this version of the franchise on the map. Here she is looking like the most gorgeous creature on planet earth:
