RuPaul’s Drag Race season 12: Watch the first 15 minutes of episode two

It's time to meet the remaining queens.

By Will Stroude

RuPaul’s Drag Race season 12 delivered one of the show’s strongest series openers in years last week, as seven characterful queensqueens entered the workroom and delivered an epic performance of ‘I’m That B*tch’ in front of an electric Nicki Minaj, who herself proved to be one of the best guest judges in recent memory.

The pressure’s on then for episode two – and the six queens we’re yet to meet due to the series two-parter premiere format – to live up to the high standards set by the first instalment.

Thankfully, VH1 have released the first 15 minutes of episode two online, so that you don’t have to wait any longer to find out.

The new teaser gives us a chance to see remaining queens Aiden Zhane, Dahlia Sin, Jaida Essence Hall, Jan, Rock M. Sakura and Sherry Pie enter the work room, and there are plenty of enough lewks to reassure us they’ll be able to keep up with last week’s top queen, Widow Von’Du.

Episode two of season 12 will also see Westworld‘s Thandie Newton and pop icon Robyn join the judging panel – though whether they’ll be delivering an ad-hoc rap verse a la Nicki Minaj remains to be see (though we think we can safely say we know the answer to that particular question).

RuPaul’s Drag Race season 12 episode two airs this Friday 6 March on VH1 in the US and the following day on Netflix in the UK. Check out the first 15 minutes below:
