In a recent development, RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under is set to return for its fourth season next year, and casting applications for the eagerly awaited season are now officially open. Building on the success of its third season, which was filmed in New Zealand earlier this year, the iconic show continues to be hosted by RuPaul, alongside judges Michelle Visage and Australian comedian Rhys Nicholson.
Aspiring queens looking to make their mark can now register for season four through the World of Wonder website. To be considered, performers are required to provide their details and submit a series of photos showcasing their transformation both in and out of drag. Once this initial step is completed, the casting team will then contact the queens with further instructions on creating and submitting their audition tape. Interested individuals are urged to act swiftly, as registrations for the new season of Drag Race Down Under are set to close on November 24, 2023.
The news follows the crowning of the first Australian Drag Race Down Under winner, Isis Avis Loren, during the third season. This momentous victory came after two Kiwi queens had taken the title in previous seasons. The official finale viewing party, held at Universal Sydney nightclub and attended by Rhys and season two winner Spankie Jackzon, celebrated Isis Avis Loren’s remarkable achievement. Sydney drag queen Gabriella Labucci secured the runner-up position in the highly competitive third season, which also featured a talented cast of queens including Amyl, Ashley Madison, Bumpa Love, Flor, Hollywould Star, Ivanna Drink, Ivory Glaze, and Rita Menu.
