Without further ado, here is the full cast of queens joining Drag Race Holland season two.
Ivy-Elise queen is based in Amsterdam and wants to set an example for the Netherlands and for the Asian community through her appearance on the show. She is also one of the founders of The Mermaid Mansion alongside Drag Race Holland‘s first winner Envy Peru and finalist Miss Abby OMG.
This lively queen says that participating in Drag Race Holland is a “big middle finger” to all of her “haters” who excluded her because she was “different”, according to the press release for this season.
This powerful queen is also known for her moniker “The Dutchess”, and her conceptual and regal appearance will surely impress Drag Race fans.
Born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Love Masisi has performed on stages around the world before settling in Amsterdam. She also once won an award for “best butt in the world”, according to WOW.
My Little Punny
Artist My Little Punny is a new queen who has established her name in Amsterdam’s competitive drag scene. She has a background in theatre and dance, making her a fierce performer to watch.
The dancer once made a guest appearance at one of Miss OMG’s shows, and her drag identity Reggy B was born. Her striking looks draw inspiration from modern pop culture and are as eye-catching as they are colourful.
Performer Tabitha is a legend in the Dutch drag scene, and her years of experience in nightclubs shows with her ability to command any stage.
One of the younger queens this season, The Countess has branded herself as a “female illusionist based on a true fantasy”. Last season, the queen did van Leer’s makeup, but now she’s stepping onto the stage to show off her striking creations.
