You will never be bored when you are with Juicy Kutoure! She is juicy, lively and super spicy. Participating in Drag Race Holland is a big middle finger for her to all the haters who have excluded her because she was different. Drag gave her the strength to be herself and make her dreams come true. This creative queen is an all-rounder and shows everyone how you should live life. With her looks she leaves a folk, sexy and quirky impression that you can only love!
Keta Minaj (39), Amsterdam
Keta Minaj, a.k.a. The Dutchess, is a performer at heart. She is powerful, elegant, talented and a little bit weird. It's always a party with Keta. She takes you on a crazy trip, in which she enchants you with her sexy moves, infectious energy and impressive outfits. Her style is mainly conceptual and she transforms to the occasion and always goes for the wow effect! With her international allure, she belongs to the top of the worldwide drag scene.
Love Masisi (39), Amsterdam
Once upon a time there was a boy from Port-au-Prince, Haiti. This little boy dressed up in a dress and called himself Masisi. When this little boy was growing up, Love Masisi, a Caribbean queen and entertainer, was born. Love Masisi has performed at the biggest stages, events and musical theaters in the world and once won an award for best butt in the world. In addition, she was recently seen in the RTL programs Make Up Your Mind and I Can See Your Voice, where she also showed that she also has a beautiful voice.
My Little Puny (39), Amsterdam
Meet My Little Puny; a fierce performer who, as a new queen, quickly established her name in the Amsterdam drag scene. My Little Puny is an ode to femininity and will never show the same thing twice. She cannot be pigeonholed and believes there should be no rules in drag. She sees herself as a true conceptual queen, switching effortlessly from genderfuck to femme and everything in between! With a background in theater and dance, she is definitely one to watch!
Reggy B (25), Amsterdam
Bram knew from an early age what he wanted to be: an entertainer. He didn't know exactly what that meant until he met Miss Abby OMG and Reggy B was born. After one guest appearance at a show of hers, it went very quickly and Bram takes the spotlight as Reggy B. Reggy is wicked and has a big mouth, but secretly she has a small heart. She is the ultimate example of a fierce baby queen with humor, inspired by modern pop culture. She loves to host a show where the audience is entertained all evening; a true performance queen!
Tabitha (45), Amsterdam
Tabitha is a sexy and slightly whore-y show queen, a true entertainer at heart. She is super camp and sometimes fishy or a club kid. Tabitha is known for her direct humor and she wears her heart on her sleeve, making her loved by everyone. She says she is anything but a one trick pony and she can't wait to show the world. Tabitha gives us Tabitha 2.0; a true drag scene legend.
The Countess (22), Amsterdam
The Countess is a true classic. She is timeless and switches effortlessly from modern and glamourous to classic with a fetish edge. Besides drag, Tom plays classical piano and his big dream is to one day give a classical piano concert in drag. The Countess has a heart of gold, but won't let the caviar be eaten her toast. Where last season she did Fred's make-up, she is now on the starting blocks to start here race to the crown!
Vanessa van Cartier (41), Zele/Rotterdam
The only Flemish Italian queen this year is Vanessa van Cartier. Internationally, she has made her mark in the drag scene by taking the win as the first post-op transgender in the Miss Continental pageant in Chicago. But Vanessa is mostly legendary for her gorgeous lip syncs and her polished style of drag. She is the drag mom of Season 1 winner Envy Peru, and she proudly represents the trans community she still fights for on a daily basis. She always tries to tell a story and share a message. This queen will conquer your heart!
Vivaldi (22), Enschede
Vivaldi is a true artist. He knows all about wigs and makeup and it shows. She transforms from glamorous to spooky and he does this effortlessly. He is therefore seen as a major competitor by many queens, which you have to watch out for. In Season 1, Vivaldi provided Fred's wigs, but that's no guarantee for success. The battle has begun and no queen is safe from this creative and artful hair queen.
Drag Race Holland Season 2 premieres Friday, August 6 on WOW Presents Plus.
