Meet Dragula’s Season 4 Ghouls

The wait is over, Uglies! The long awaited season 4 of The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula is creeping in just in time for fright season on Shudder in October and the cast of ghouls is out!

 

Among the cast of horror queens vowing for the title of the world’s next Drag Supermonster, is Jade Jolie, the first contestant from the RuPaul’s Drag Race franchise to cross over to the dark side. Additionally, Dragula season 3 and Resurrection winner Saint returns to the competition as well as the first-ever competitor from South Korea, Hoso Terra Toma.

Since it’s premiere in 2016, The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula has brought visibility to the subversive form of drag that is represented by each of its competitors. Each week contestants put their literal blood, sweat, and tears as they compete in fear factor-type challenges that show that a well-rounded Drag Supermonster has to have it all–or else they get exterminated!

For the first time ever, this year The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula is offering $100,000 to the winner, a deal made possible since AMC Networks is the parent company of horror streaming platform, Shudder. Don’t miss season 4 of The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula when it screams your way on October 19.

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 fun. “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?”
