The 26-year-old beat off tough competition from fan favourites such as Kandy Muse, Gottmik and Greenock born Scottish drag queen Rose to lift the crown in April, and has since enjoyed success hosting fashion show ‘Mode’ across the world alongside fellow RuPaul contestants Gigi Goode, Bimini Bon Boulash, Tayce and A’Whora.
However, the time to hand over the crown is just weeks away, as the long wait for the latest season of the Netflix show is almost over, with each new queen for season 14 already announced – and a start date for the season confirmed.
Aired on streaming service Netflix for British viewers, the US version of the programme has proven to be a huge hit with audiences since its inception, producing a string of internationally acclaimed drag artists, millions adoring fans who tune in weekly and a spate of spin off shows, all hosted by drag royalty RuPaul Charles.
The reality TV show, hosted by world famous drag queen RuPaul Charles, originally aired in the United States in 2009 and has since seen the show, dubbed the ‘Olympics of drag’, aired in various countries across the world.

Who are the guest judges for Drag Race US series 14?
RuPaul is a well connected celebrity, and Drag Race is one of the hottest shows on the planet – so it’s never short on celebrity guests. However, this season has some of the biggest names yet.
Last year saw a stellar list of guest judges, with Scarlett Johansson, Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman and Anne Hathaway all appearing as special guests during season 13.
However, this year promises to be even bigger and better. Already confirmed as guest judges for the show are massive names such as Alicia Keyes, Andra Day and Lizzo. Jennifer Lopez will also make a special appearance on the show.
Regular judge and long time partner in crime Michelle Visage will likely to continue alongside alternating judges Ross Matthews and Carson Kressley, who have both featured as judges in recent seasons.
