Columbus, OH (Nina West) — What an honor to take part in this special event for @RuPaulsDragRace!
Last year, RuPaul’s Drag Race made herstory when it became the first reality series to win an Emmy for Outstanding Reality-Competition Program and Outstanding Reality Host in the same year. …
With season 11 contestants Nina West and Plastique Tiarra at the helm as emcees, the show started with a video introduction by RuPaul who was unable to attend (don’t worry, she apologized), followed by a performance of from the top five queens of the season: Vanessa Vanjie Mateo, Silky Nutmeg Ganache, A’Keria C. Davenport, Brooke Lynn Hytes, and the winner Yvie Oddly.
After the queens shablammed and sashayed, Judges Michelle Visage and Carson Kressley took the stage with Emmy-winning costume designer Zaldy Goco and Executive Producers Randy Barbato, Tom Campbell, Mandy Salangsang, Steven Corfe and Tim Palazzola. Judge Ross Mathews was, unfortunately, unable to attend last minute due to being sick. They celebrated the show and discussed the journey of the show since season one, what goes into choosing the queens each season and how the show combines the best parts of every reality show: singing, sewing, acting, dancing and more.
