We’ve got our first look at the second season of RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under and RuPaul is promising that we’re about to get served.

In the short promo posted to the World of Wonder Instagram account, we get a brief look at the 10 queens vying for the crown and a few challenges they’ll be competing in.

The trailer also confirms that Mama Ruy will be joined by Michelle Visage and Australian comic, Rhys Nicholson. 

At one point Visage says, “She commanded that stage like nobody’s business,” while Nicholson can be seen telling someone: “This is one of my favorite things I’ve ever seen.”

High praise indeed!

RuPaul later comments, “No one can top the queens from Down Under.” 

This year’s queens are Aubrey Haive, Beverly Kills, Faúx Fúr, Hannah Conda, Kween Kong, Minnie Cooper, Molly Poppinz, Pomara Fifth, Spankie Jackzon, and Yuri Guaii.

The first season of the Down Under franchise ended with New Zealander Kita Mean taking the crown beating her fellow finalists Art Simone, Karen from Finance, and Scarlet Adams.

Drag Race Down Under will debut on 30 July on BBC Three in the UK and WOW Presents Plus around the world and on Stan in Australia.

The Attitude July/August issue is out now.
