Imagine watching RuPaul’s Drag Race, but this time it’s online influencers being taught how to do drag by seasoned professionals. That is the premise for the upcoming YouTube series Drag Babies.
A new, 30-second teaser trailer for the unscripted series was released via YouTuber Max Emerson’s channel. Emerson will be competing as one of the titular “babies,” with RuPaul’s Drag Race season 8 winner Bob the Drag Queen hosting, and Drag Race alumni including Peppermint and Chi Chi DeVayne serving as the “drag mothers.”
The show will follow three drag newcomers — Emerson, Pablo Hernandez and Johnny Sibilly — learning each week what it takes to be a glamorous drag queen with the help of their “mothers” and a MAC cosmetics “pro-artist.”
The first of 10 weekly episodes will debut on Emerson’s channel on March 13. Watch the show’s teaser trailer below:
