Yum! Let’s Take a Closer Look at the ‘Drag Race’ Pit Crew

RuPaul’s Drag Race has become a pop culture phenomenon over the past decade, winning a ton of Emmy’s and earning millions of fans from all backgrounds in the process. Heck, they even created DragCon, which rivals all the other “cons” out there in terms of sheer size and chaos, so all that tucking and padding that they do is worth it at the end of the day.

A vital part of the show’s success isn’t just the queens, RuPaul himself, his fellow judges or the endless catchphrases that have come out of it, it’s the barely-clothed men who are there during many of the challenges that provide a yummy distraction each episode.

They are the “pit crew” and have been there since the show premiered back in 2009. Many have come and gone, but all of them have provided something really fun to look at as the show has progressed. Essentially, they are there during the mini and maxi-challenges to either show off what the queens will be doing during each or become part of something being filmed or shot in order for each of the contestants to hopefully score a W. Regardless, it’s a great sight to see no matter what the situation is.

Let’s take a closer look at all the men who have been a pit crew member for at least one season.

  1. Question:  Drag Race features

    Question:  Drag Race features queens of all shapes & sizes, and Rupaul has said that she embraces all body types….for the queens.
    Why doesn't she embrace all body types for the Pit Crew?  Why are they all muscly ripped pretty-boys with 2% bodyfat?  How about a bear in the Pit Crew???  Why is there a double standard here???
