Although technically Drag Race Thailand is based on the American reality TV series RuPaul’s Drag Race, the two shows have actually diverged quite significantly since the premier. Although both are contests that challenge drag queens to perform, sing, act, and design, Drag Race Thailand is considered much more serious competition. Plus, it features several cultural differences not at play in the original competition.
Contestants are given real feedback by judges and are expected to improve each episode. In the end, the winner is crowned “Thailand’s Next Drag Superstar”.
