The hunt is now on to crown the "Queen of Great Britain."
RuPaul's Drag Race is heading across the Atlantic. Announced Wednesday (Dec. 5) by the BBC and World of Wonder, which produces the award-winning original, the first U.K. adaptation will land on BBC Three in 2019 with the aim to crown the "Queen of Great Britain."
“It is a dream come true to extend our royal family to the United Kingdom with our partners at BBC Three," said RuPaul. "I am beyond excited to celebrate the massive charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent of the Queen’s queens. And before anyone asks, yes, we would be thrilled to have Meghan Markle join us, as we are already preparing a ‘Royal-Mother-to-Be’ runway challenge.”
Contestants will compete in individual or team challenges that test a specific drag queen skill before taking on the Maxi Challenge, the headline moment of each show where they may be required to perform, model in a photo shoot or prepare a runway look for a themed challenge before having to face the judges, with one contestant each week eliminated and asked to "Sashay Away."
