Canada vs The World is the second Drag Race spinoff of its kind, the first being RuPaul’s Drag Race: UK vs The World which shocked and delighted audiences around the globe earlier this year. Top performing queens each week would ‘lip sync for their legacies’ and have the power to eliminate one of the bottom performing girls. After a series of shocking eliminations in which the toughest competitors were eliminated early on in the competition, Blu Hydrangea of Belfast emerged victorious. Canada’s version will follow the same format guaranteeing tears, drama and fierce competition.

CANADA’S DRAG RACE: CANADA VS. THE WORLD will air on Crave in Canada and Wow Presents Plus everywhere else.
