Who is RuPaul?
RuPaul’s Drag Race is an American reality competition show produced by World of Wonder for Logo TV. The series’ title character is RuPaul, a drag queen, and the show’s host.
As a kid, RuPaul Charles dreamed but never imagined he would become a successful performer in drag queen pageants or have his TV show called RuPaul’s Drag Race. Ru got his start by dancing at local clubs and making a name for himself by performing with groups.
RuPaul Charles realized his vision for Drag Race when he created a documentary about “the making of America’s most outrageous, talented, and unforgettable drag queens.” He organized the first season which aired in 2009 on the Logo TV channel. The second season aired in 2010 with twelve contestants vying for $25,000 and a coveted spot as one of ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race girls.
The idea for RuPaul’s Drag Race was born from a challenge RuPaul had set himself to make his talk show from scratch in one day, with no pre-production. From there, it grew into what we know today as “the race.” The American version has been running since 2009 while overseas countries such as Brazil and UK have their own versions now too.
The show, presents RuPaul and his team of judges, from season one to season ten, as they choose which drag queen will be crowned America’s Next Drag Superstar.
The first season of the show aired in 2009 and has had nine more seasons since then. Aside from that, it has also had international versions in countries such as Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, and the United Kingdom.
The international versions of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” are based on the American version and go by different names: “RuPaul’s Drag Race Thailand,” “Drag Race Venezuela,” and “RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars.”
