With Canada’s Drag Race just having wrapped up, the franchise is touching down in The Netherlands, which means 10 Dutch queens are sashaying into the Drag Race Holland werk room.
Premiering on September 18, the inaugural Dutch spin-off of the Emmy-winning franchise will compete for the crown under head judge, celebrity stylist, and former Holland’s Next Top Model mentor Fred van Leer.
First announced by Entertainment Weekly, the competing queens are: Megan Schoonbrood, Patty Pam-Pam, Sederginne, Envy Peru, Madame Madness, Ma’MaQueen, Janey Jacke, ChelseaBoy, Roem, and Miss Abby OMG.
Drag Race Holland’s launch marks the series’ fifth spin-off in international territory. In addition to the main RuPaul's Drag Race competition on VH1 in the United States, the show has fronted iterations in Thailand, the United Kingdom, South America, and Canada, with another installment currently in the works for Australia. WOW co-founders Randy Barbato and Fenton Bailey previously told Entertainment Weekly that “three or four” more worldwide markets were in the running to receive their own versions of the show.
The new series will air on Videoland in the Netherlands and on WOW Presents Plus internationally. Have a first look at the queens below.
