Word On The Street: RuPaul is Out, Sasha Colby is In!

Rumours are flying that Sasha will replace Ru as host this season with one Australian Down Under alumni telling Pitt Crew – “Ru is not coming this year.”


RuPaul is promoting his new memoir ‘The House of Hidden Meanings’ with a book tour that starts on Saturday, 4 March, in New York City, leading to speculation that Down Under Season 4 would need to wrap early.

Drag Race usually takes two days to film each episode, and Down Under usually has ten episodes, so unless Ru skips the final two episodes – surely he can’t make it,” a concerned fan pointed out to YOUR EX.

YOUR EX can confirm that joining Sasha will be permanent Drag Race Down Under judges Michelle Visage and Rhys Nicholson.

It is expected Ru will at least make a cameo on the show. A source close to production previously told YOUR EX that Ru would be involved in filming, confirming ‘I’ve seen the receipts!’

According to rumoured cast lists on Reddit, New Zealand queens Medulla Oblongata and Lucina Innocence are set to compete.
