Start je motoren! That’s Ductch for Start your engines! The race is officially on for Holland’s first Drag Superstar with the world premiere of Drag Race Holland.
The ten queens competing for the title – Miss Abby OMG, Roem, ChelseaBoy, Janey Jacké, Ma’MaQueen, Madame Madness, Envy Peru, Sederginne, Patty Pam-Pam, and Megan Schoonbrood – took to the werkroom and runway for the very first time. Host Fred van Leer was joined by actor Nikkie Plessen, fashion designer Cleas Iversens, and comedian Sanne Wallis de Vries to judge this week’s lewks.
New episodes of Drag Race Holland premiere every Thursday at 3pm PT / 6pm ET on WOW Presents Plus in the US and select territories.
SPOILER ALERT: Challenge winners and elimination details from the first episode of Drag Race Holland follow.
The Queens were thrown right into the deep end for the first mini-challenge of the show – an underwater photoshoot with photographer Jasper Suyk. Some queens floated to the top, while others sank under pressure. Ultimately, Miss Abby OMG out swam the competition and took home the first win of the season.
For the first runway challenge, the queens were tasked with creating a lewk inspired by the theme “Who’s Your Queen.” They were also asked to share what makes them the most unique that they deserve to win the ultimate crown. Queen bee Janey Jacké reigned supreme as this week’s winner. Megan Schoonbrood and Roem were the first tulip sync for their life to Madonna’s “Express Yourself.” In the end, the judges said goodbye to Roem.
