We have been waiting for this moment! This morning, the queens of Season 11 of Rupaul's Drag Race were announced in a livestream on YouTube.
And the moment that had us GAGGING was when Miss Vanessa Vanjie Mateo was announced to return! To refresh you, Miss Vanjie was the first to depart from Season 10, uttering the meme-worthy phrase "Miss Vanjie....Miss Vanjie......Miss Vanjie" as she walked out backwards.
In case you need to see her interview on the live stream, it's 1:50:00 into this vid below. Yeah, that's AN HOUR 50 into the TWO HOUR live stream. If ya have a spare couple of hours...watch it, though!
Sadly a premiere date wasn't included in the announcement so we will just have to wait to find out about that one! Although after seeing the YouTube vid, we have some faves already.
The queens are… A’keria Chanel Davenport (Dallas), niece of All Stars 3 finalist Kennedy Davenport; professional wigmaker Ariel Versace (New Jersey); ballet dancer Brooke Lynn Hytes (Canada); Honey Davenport (Harlem), drag mother of current All Stars 4 competitor Monet X Change; Kahanna Montrese (Las Vegas), drag daughter of Coco Montrese; Mercedes Iman Diamond, the show’s first Muslim queen; theatrical diva Nina West (Columbus, Ohio); Alyssa Edwards’ drag daughter Plastique Tiara (Chicago); Ra’jah O’Hara (Texas); Scarlet Envy (Brooklyn); Shuga Cane (New York City); Silky Nutmeg Ganache (Baltimore); Soju (Chicago); Yvie Oddly and Vanessa Vanjie Mateo.
