Bitter Betty (She / Her)
Bitter Betty is a self-identifying trans woman who brings twenty years of drag experience to the competition. She feels that trans drag artists are not allowed the same opportunities as cis drag performers and views the show as an opportunity to represent her community and bring home the crown. She draws inspiration from the colors and silhouettes of ‘80s cartoons and is bringing camp, experience, and “trans energy” to the competition.

Koco Caine (They / Them)
Koco infuses their drag with equal parts of seduction and horror and is bringing a strong dose of body positivity to the show. As a self-described “zombie stripper,” Koco feels they have what it takes to snatch the crown and to bring something to the competition that no other competitor in previous seasons has. As an underrepresented, black drag performer who performs alternative and horror drag, Koco feels it’s important for them to show up, represent their community and bring home the crown.

Formelda Hyde (He / Him, They / Them)
Formelda Hyde identifies as a digital drag artist who has spent most of their time performing online and in digital drag shows as opposed to traditional live stages and clubs. A true horror fan at heart, Formelda describes his drag as the “true embodiment of fear” and through his drag “seeks to express the darkest elements of horror within our world”. Through his unique blend of artistry and unconventional materials, Formelda hopes to use his new platform to change the way drag has traditionally been seen.

Jade Jolie (She / Her)
Jade Jolie considers herself a drag chameleon and while she’s already known as a previous competitor on RuPaul’s Drag Race, she hopes to show audiences that she can evolve and adapt to any drag medium. As a lover of all forms of drag, Jade enters the competition with a desire to prove to the world that her drag style doesn’t just fit in one category or box. While she feels people may be expecting a certain kind of drag from her, she warns them to expect the unexpected: “I’m bringing things people would never think I was capable of. Get ready.”

Merrie Cherry (She / Her)
Merrie Cherry is a drag pioneer in the Brooklyn, NY, scene and is always the biggest personality in the room. With her mixture of camp, fashion, and a unique sense of humor, she hopes to bring the strengths of a true entertainer to the competition. While never afraid to be the butt of a joke herself, she’s entering the competition not striving to be perfect but to keep the experience enjoyable. “At the end of the day it’s about entertaining and that is what Merrie Cherry does. Oh, and I’m definitely bringing a little drama mama, because we are on a reality show and who doesn’t love a little fun.”

Saint (He / Him, She / Her, They / Them)
Saint is the self-proclaimed “Runway Demon Queen of Season 4.” Her drag is fueled by imagination and nightmares “with a bit of fashion sprinkled on top,” and she proved her prowess as a true drag icon by winning The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula Resurrection Halloween special in 2020. As this is her second time competing on the series, she feels her experience and growth as an artist has primed her perfectly to snatch the crown.

Sigourney Beaver (She / Her)
Sigourney Beaver is a self-described “hyper femme AFAB queen” or as she likes to put it “a female impersonator-impersonator.” Sigourney is a killer beauty queen who loves to hypnotize audiences with her piercing white eyes and sky-high hair. Coming from a burlesque background, Sigourney incorporates the art of the tease into all her drag performances. With several pageant titles under her belt, Sigourney is hoping to add “The World’s Next Drag Supermonster” to her already impressive resume.

La Zavaleta is a recent transplant to the Brooklyn, NY, drag scene hailing originally from her hometown of Mexico City, Mexico. She mixes sexy and scary in all of her drag looks and is known for being an incredible live performer who always sets the stage on fire. La Zavaleta is chasing the American dream and hopes to prove that putting time, effort, and drive into her aspirations will allow her to manifest her destiny and bring home the crown.
