The top four RuPaul's Drag Race season 15 contestants introduce themselves to each other in a five-minute sneak peek of the new season.
The first four queens of RuPaul's Drag Race season 15 got a sneak peek in the season premiere. The new season premieres on January 6th and will feature 16 new queens vying for the crown. The series premiered in 2009 and brought stars like Shangela Laquifa Wadley and Trixie Mattel into the spotlight. Shangela came in fourth on season 31 of Dancing with the Stars, and Ru recently admitted that he thinks she deserves to win one of the few Drag Race seasons she's been on. This season, the series has moved from VH1 to MTV for a fresh start.
Fans can meet four of RuPaul's Drag Race season 15 contestants in a new preview released by the show. RuPaul's Drag Race shared a sneak peek video on YouTube featuring Irene Dubois, Luxx Noir London, Aura Mayari and Marcia Marcia Marcia. Seattle-based alien queen Irene sneezes on her own cheap perfume the moment she enters her workshop. The queen cites Texas and science fiction as inspirations for her drag look. Lux is the next queen to enter the room. "It must have gagged them," she said with overconfidence. Queen is from New Jersey, Erin was quickly offended when she claimed her hair wasn't actually 40 inches long. "I'm definitely the prettiest," said the Drag Race contestant when Erin asked about the drag scene in New Jersey.
Luxx Might Make Some Enemies On Drag Race Season 15
Next, Aura from Nashville arrives, looking like Taylor Swift's 2018 reputation stadium tour. She admits to being inspired by pop stars like Beyoncé, Rihanna and even Justin Bieber. Aura is very warm and happy to introduce herself to other queens. Finally, Marcia brings it back to the '70s Brady family persona with her blond hair and bandaged nose from the iconic episode when Marcia Brady gets hit in the face by a football. "Marcia Marcia Marcia is like prom queen, she's the class president, and she's really beautiful," the drag queen said of her role, with another drag queen joking that she looks like Jan Brady.
The drag queens of season 15 have been a diverse and unique group thus far. Irene brings otherworldly energy, and Luxx's extreme belief in herself may carry her to the end. Although, she will definitely piss off the other queens. Does she feel superior Scared by the other contestants' nervousness or her confidence, Luxx may leave the match with a crown, but she's sure to walk away with some enemies. Aura also has a chance and seems to have a genuine confidence of her own that will take her so far in Drag Race season 15.
As for Marcia, hopefully she will be as popular with judges and fans as she was in high school. She's going to have to work hard, though, to prove that she's more than just a pretty face and has a lot to offer. Unfortunately, the other 12 Drag Race entrants were left out of the preview, so it's impossible to tell how far the top four will go in the race. Hopefully the other queens bring as much to the series as the first four. With a new network, 16 contestants and celebrity guest judges including Ariana Grande and Janelle Monáe, fans of Rupaul's Drag Race are in for an exciting season.
