After Katya announced last month that she was taking a break from drag, fans wondered what would happen to The Trixie and Katya Show during her absence.
Now we have our answer because today it was announced that Drag Race Season 8 winner, Bob the Drag Queen, would be stepping into Katya’s high heels for co-hosting duties on the Viceland series.
“For the second half of the season, we decided to get someone to make me look even more beautiful. Please welcome Bob the Drag Queen,” Trixie Mattel said in the announcement.
On her new gig, Bob added, “I am so excited to be guesting on The Trixie and Katya Show. I’m neither Trixie or Katya, but it is Black History Month so…”
This isn’t the first time that Trixie and Bob have co-hosted their own show. At last year’s DragCon in New York, Bob filled in for Katya during the live UNHhhh panel based on the popular weekly YouTube series that was the inspiration for the Viceland comedy.
Bob takes over hosting duties starting February 28 for the final five episodes of the show’s first season.
