Stan just unveiled the first set of superstar guests for RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under Season 2 and ooh boi, they did not disappoint.
The first crop of stars gracing the spicy competition series are Australia’s beloved wildlife warriors Bindi and Robert Irwin and legendary actress Lucy Lawless, who you’ll recognise as the badass babe in Xena: Warrior Princess. She also played Ron Swanson’s missus in cult classic comedy series Parks & Recreation.
“How could we not be involved in a show as fun and iconic as RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under?!” Bindi and Robert Irwin said.
“We’re big fans and were chuffed to help kick off the new season, especially after Art Simone‘s hilarious Snatch Game impersonation last year! We can’t wait to see how all our Down Under kanga-rus go this season.”
Lucy Lawless added: “I absolutely loved being part of the new season of RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under and can’t believe I got to sit beside RuPaul, Michelle and Rhys! Of course I know a thing or two about being a warrior princess but these new queens are absolutely next level. So fierce and so fabulous, I was in complete awe and am really looking forward to seeing how they all go!”
Stan recently Ru-Vealed the new set of queens who’ll be competing this year, each one more promising than the last.
Introducing Aubrey Haive (NZ/MEL), Beverly Kills (QLD), Faux Fur (SYD), Hannah Conda (SYD/PER), Kween Kong (SA/NZ), Minnie Cooper (SYD), Molly Poppinz (NTL), Pomara Fifth (SYD), Spankie Jackzon (NZ/MEL) and Yuri Guaii (NZ).
