We just showed you some behind-the-scenes photos of Thailand’s upcoming production of Drag Race Thailand. But since the Kantana Group Public Co. Ltd purchased the rights to produce their own version of RuPaul’s Drag Race, a lot more has been kept a secret to drag community in Thailand. Based on the photos posted by Piyarat Kaljareuk, VP of Kantana Group, the company will attempt to imitate many of the popular elements of the American reality show—in hopes that it is just as successful.
But one of the biggest keys to the show’s success will be in the host they choose. Is it possible that they have finally found someone who could fill RuPaul’s Thai shoes?
Mama has arrived!
The person who will be in charge of mentoring the drag contestants is Art-Arya, an acclaimed Thai stylist who has studied fashion design in Paris and has worked for fashion house LANVIN.
Working in fashion for over 30 years, Art-Arya, she is now the creative director of the Thai brand, THEATRE. She also continues her passion for fashion by teaching fashion and design.
She can serve the looks–but will she have what it takes to coach the hopeful drag race contestants? Will she have a signature laugh, key catch phrases like “Don’t fuck it up” “Hey Kitty Girl” and “She Done Already Had Herses”?
Drag Race Thailand is coming soon to LINE TV.
