The list of queens for RuPaul’s Drag Race season 14 has been RuVealed and includes the series first ever cis, straight male competitor.
The season 14 cast, which was unveiled by last year’s winner Symone, will feature in a two-parter first episode, kicking off on the 7th of January 2022.
Maddy Morphosis, who describes herself on her Instagram as “Arkansas’s most overrated drag queen”, took to social media after being announced as a contestant, posting, “The game is on! And I’m excited to announce that I’m a contestant on season 14 of RuPaul’s Drag Race! The game will NEVER be the same!”
Fans are also praising the new cast following the confirmation that two trans women will also appear in the show.
The full list of season 12 queens:
- Alyssa Hunter – Hailing from San Juan, Puerto Rico, this queen won her first pageant at the age of 18. Just kidding, because she was actually 16 and lied about her age during the competition.
- Angeria Paris VanMicheals – Angeria has loads of quotable sayings from her Meet the Queens and pokes fun of her southern background, “I think when people first meet me, I think they say ‘Oh my god, he is so lovely’, and then I open my mouth, and then they say ‘this b*tch is country as hell.’”
- Bosco – This Seattle-based queen is a true animal lover and got her stage name from her family dog.
- Daya Betty – This queen is the first Type 1 Diabetic on the show. And she’s totally an optimist given her stage name is a play on the word ‘diabetic.’
- DeJa Skye – We love a Beyoncé stan. Deja has taken inspiration from B’s song “Deja Vú” to create her stage name.
- Jasmine Kennedie – This New Yorker is truly Generation Ru, getting her start in the drag scene at a young age and quickly building a name for herself in one of the most competitive drag scenes there is.
- Jorgeous – Perhaps the most brilliant play on names, Jorgeous is the stage name to 21-year-old Jorge.
- June Jambalaya – Based in Los Angeles, this queen calls herself the Real Housewife of Drag.
- Kerri Colby – Kerri is one of the two trans women competing this season and is super confident the title could be hers. After all, she hails from the legendary House of Colby.
- Kornbread Jeté – Kornbread also identifies as trans. She’s bound to make fans laugh this season as she rose to popularity doing comedy on Brandon Rogers’ YouTube channel.
- Lady Camden – This queen has crossed the pond from the UK to Sacramento, California. She is no stranger to Drag Race and has hosted RuPaul’s Drag Race UK viewing parties at the Beaux in San Fransisco.
- Maddy Morphosis – Already making headway for being the show’s first straight male contestant, this queen will be one to watch.
- Orion Story – Michigan fans have a queen to root for as Orion is the show’s first contestant to be based in the Mitten State.
- Willow Pill – Drag sister of Yvie Oddly, Willow is ready to freak fans out with another serving of avant-garde looks out of Denver, Colorado.
