The much-awaited premiere of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 11 is set to air on February 28, and all drag fans couldn’t get more excited. Today, the hit reality TV show RuVealed some exciting details of the first episode.
And honey, it looks like it’s going to be one of the most sickening premieres in HERstory!
Well, we all know that Miley Cyrus is going to be the special guest judge for the episode. But, that’s not all that’s in store for every drag race fan out there.
The synopsis reads: “Miley Cyrus goes undercover in the workroom to spy on the new cast of queens competing for $100,000. The first test is to create signature looks from materials belonging to former Drag Race legends.”
Hmmmm. So it’s basically another sewing challenge. If it is, then this is the chance for Miss Vanjie to RuDeem herself from the sewing challenge that sent her home from the previous season.
Sewing challenges became controversial in the show because some queens really don’t know how to sew. One instance is the remarkable fight between LaShawn Beyond and Jiggly Caliente over Jiggly’s insistence that she doesn’t know how to sew during the RuPaucalypse challenge. Another notable instance was when Monet Xchange almost went home after a seeing challenge for ‘murdering an expensive fabric.’
There’s a lot that comes to mind when you hear ‘drag race legends.’ The challenge may see a recreation of the best sewing challenge runway looks from previous seasons. This includes Sharon Needle’s apocalypse look or Violet Chachki’s Hello Kitty runway.
It is also interesting to see queens recreate infamous runways that became famous for all the wrong reasons. It’s exciting to see a queen that would probably reimagine Kennedy Davenport’s Death Becomes Her runway look or Shangela’s Christmas couture in Season 3.
The first episode of season 11 will premiere 28 February in the United States on VH1. In the UK, it will debut on Netflix the morning after. /apr
