These girls are serving serious stroopwafel fantasy!
Earlier this summer, World of Wonder (WOW), broadcaster RTL, and Vincent TV announced that Drag Race Holland, a new international version of RuPaul’s Drag Race, would be coming to the Netherlands on September 18. Last week you met the queens who would be serving stroopwafel realness on the Drag Race Holland mainstage, and now you can watch them stomp into the workroom in the first extended look of the new series.
Even though RuPaul won’t be hosting the series, the glamazon does make an appearance in the preview—on a TV at least—asking the girls: “Which one of you lucky bitches is going to be crowned the first dutch drag race superstar?”
That’s what we’re dying to know!
Since Ru won’t be hosting, that honor goes to Fred van Leer, a Dutch TV personality and stylist who also sashays into the workroom in the new clip.
“I still can’t believe I’ll host Drag Race Holland with the blessing of RuPaul! What a dream! This program is everything I believe in and stand for!” Fred said in a statement. “It’s all about charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent and I can’t wait to see all the fantastic creations of the queens on the runway, the lip syncs and all the challenges we created. A first message to our queens: You’d better work bitch! Good luck and don’t fuck it up!”
When Drag Race Holland was announced WOW co-founders and Drag Race executive producers Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato said: “We firmly believe in charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent and can’t wait to welcome these 10 talented queens into the Drag Race family. It’s fantastic to work with RTL and Vincent TV on launching a Dutch version of the franchise, but it’s also a privilege to be able to bring this brilliant new series to an international audience too, via our own SVOD Platform WOW Presents Plus. We know fans won’t be disappointed.”
Judging from this trailer we should be in for quite a show! Check out the extended preview below. Watch the Drag Race Holland series premiere Thursday, September 17 at 6pm ET/3pm PT on WOW Presents Plus.
