Since the announcement of potential RuPaul’s Drag Race spin-offs in Mexico and Brazil this week, the fans have been having a ball online celebrating the news. There are memes galore from fans about who they hope to see host, judge, and compete in these series. We rounded up some of the most hilarious memes.
World of Wonder, the production company behind RuPaul’s Drag Race, set the Internet ablaze when they put out a casting call for the best drag queens in Mexico, Brazil, and Germany. The casting call is likely for spin-offs of the popular drag queen series in those respective countries. Hopefuls hoping to compete in these have until Aug. 26 to get their applications in.
Since the success of Drag Race España, the first Spanish-language franchise of RuPaul’s Drag Race, fans have been hoping for Mexico to be next. When the casting call went out, one fan posted a meme of RuPaul announcing Drag Race Mexico in a press conference that included President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
Some fans are pulling for Mexican-American drag queen Valentina to host Drag Race Mexico. One fan went further and posted about the guest judges they hope to see on the series. The Twitter post includes a picture of Mexican pop icons Thalía and Paulina Rubio alongside Salma Hayek, Angelique Boyer, Kate Del Castillo, Diego Boneta, and Eugenio Derbez.
Perhaps the funniest memes to come out of the #DragRaceMexico hashtag are fans hoping for beloved drag queen Jujubee to compete. Jujubee is famous for competing in multiple iterations of RuPaul’s Drag Race. After first competing on the second season of the main franchise in 2010, she appeared on RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars season one and season five and RuPaul’s Drag Race: UK Vs the World. In multiple memes, fans are ready to help Jujubee get her immigration paperwork together to compete in Drag Race Mexico next.
The excitement for a potential Drag Race Brazil is running just as high online. There are fans hoping that Pabllo Vittar, the most-followed drag queen on Twitter, can host the series. There’s also hope for the Snatch Game to include an impersonation of Brazilian icon Gretchen and Cuca, the Brazilian alligator. Time will tell if these memes come to fruition in the Drag Race multi-verse of madness.
