The Week in Drag – Meet the queens of UK vs The World, Willam gets naughty, Inti gets exposed and more

RuPaul’s Drag Race UK Versus The World

Hello, hello, hello! Welcome to another week of news and updates from the ever-expanding Drag Race universe.

In the latest The Week in Drag, we’ve got recaps and reactions of the second episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race from some of your favorite Ru-cappers and some fun from the new batch of queens as they show off some uncanny impersonations of their castmates.

We also find out which queens are taking part in the Drag Race world cup, check in with Jaymes, Willam, Trixie and Katya and check out new music from a pair of fierce musical queens. As always, we’ve got lots o see, so let’s bring it to the runway!

Not enough in your life? Don’t you fear, RuPaul’s Drag Race UK Versus The World is almost here! Ru takes Drag Race UK to the next level as he opens up the battle to Drag Race queens from around the world. The nine international members of Drag Race royal alumni will battle it out for the crown in this brand-new series.

With the UK as host nation, the series will see iconic queens from different franchises and cultures competing in an international arena, showcasing their country’s finest drag in their bid to become the Queen of the Mothertucking World. The queen-testants include Drag Race UK favorites Baga Chipz, Blu Hydrangea and Cheryl Hole, Janey Jacké from Drag Race Holland, Jimbo and Lemon from Canada’s Drag Race, Pangina Heals from Drag Race Thailand and Jujubee and Mo Heart from the good ol’ US of A. The queens will be battling it out, with RuPaul, Michelle Visage, Alan Carr, and Graham Norton on the judges’ panel.

World of Wonder also recently announced the wig-snatching lineup of guest judges including Melanie C, Jade Thirlwall, Clara Amfo, Daisy May Cooper, Jonathan Bailey, and Michelle Keegan along with special guests Johannes Radebe and Katie Price. The new series debuts on February 1st at 4pm ET exclusively on WOW Presents Plus.

Last week, we met the second batch of queens competing on season 14 of Drag Race. Monét X Change and Gottmik recap everything from the entrance looks to the runway fashions on “The Pit Stop.”

With Monét hosting Pit Stop this season, her “Sibling Watchery” co-star Bob the Drag Queen has recruited fan-favorite Heidi N Closet to dissect the second part of the season 14 premiere on “Purse First Impressions.”  

Raja and Gottmik toot and boot the entrance looks and sickening signature drag from last week’s mainstage runway on “Fashion Photo Ruview.”

The always radiant Shuga Cain (who we just don’t see enough of) joins Yuhua Hamasaki to talk all things episode 2 runway on “Bootleg Opinions”.

If you can’t get to a Drag Race viewing party, YouTube delivers. Join Drag Race alums Detox, and Rosé and Naysha Lopez along with Carson Kressley and Batty Davis recorded live at Chicago club Roscoe’s.

This week, the season 14 queens all came face-to-face and got to know more about each other and, when you spend enough time together, you can pick up their idiosyncrasies. Watch as the queens do their best impersonations of each other.

Willam is back with a very NSFW episode of “Beatdown.” If you have an urge to watch people get busy with putt putt golf, pineapples and even Mickey Mouse, this is the video for you.

I did not watch this one, but if you’re into drag queens and pimple popping videos, you should enjoy this video featuring Rock M Sakura and Militia Scunt (say her name out loud…it’s amazing) reacting to these nasty videos.

Trixie Mattel is back testing drug store makeup. This time around recreates her iconic face with Covergirl cosmetics.

Just when you thought your wallet was safe…our favorite makeup maven just launched a new collab with Sugarpill and she and Amy/Shrinkle the founder/CEO of Sugarpill reveal the new, crave-worthy lip glosses.

Season six of “UNHhhh” has wrapped, and, to tide you over until new episodes arrive, Trixie and Katya have gifted us with another round of randomness and hilarious outtakes.
