Written by express Magazine

Nine fierce and fabulous queens are out to win the title of the ultimate ‘drag-star’!

Bunny Holiday is 23 years old from Wellington.

Wellington’s Blonde ‘it girl’, Bunny takes inspiration from cult classic movies such as Mean Girls and Clueless. Bunny’s style is a fresh take on drag, with more of a casual ‘street look’ than sparkly gowns.

Tell us about your character? Who are they?
Bunny Holiday is your local socialite, she’s a spoilt little rich girl who would have been seen with Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan. Bunny is New Zealand’s answer to a gossip column princess who definitely looks like she’s is made of pure plastic. 

If you could lip-sync battle one person (dead or alive) who would it be and why?
I would lip sync against Britney Spears, she’s the greatest lip sync assassin this world has ever seen. Plus, it’s Britney Spears OMG. 

Why do you think you’ve got what it takes to win House of Drag?
I think I have what it takes because I’m a fresh take on drag, I come from the modern vein of drag which isn’t necessarily showgirl-based. I have a lot to offer and I’m fresh, modern and funny af! 

Have you got a hidden talent? If so, what is it?
I wouldn’t say I have a hidden talent, generally, with me, it’s all or nothing. If I had a hidden talent it would be my determination, I can put that energy into anything I do, and I know I’m going to work it out. 

Who is your idol?

Currently, my idols are the Clermont Twins, Erika Jayne and Kim Petras. All badass blonde women who has style pouring out of them, I live for it! I’m also super into anything Emma Roberts does she is a queen in my eyes. 

What can’t you live without make-up product wise?
I wouldn’t be able to live without a good glue stick, if I couldn’t glue down my eyebrows I’d be a hot mess (and not in a good way)!

How long does it take you to get ready – going full drag?
I usually like to take 2 hours to get into full drag, I don’t like being rushed at all. 

The first two episodes House of Drag launch today on TVNZ OnDemand, with episodes released weekly at midday from then on.
