Who will be the first-ever Filipino Drag Supreme?

Drag Den Philippines has announced the eight sickening queens that will be competing on the reality competition on Nov. 17, a day after it released its first teaser.

"Magpayong ka! Dahil jujulanis morisette ng beauty, wit, and talent dito sa ating underground Baranggayan," it said.

Hosted by Manila Luzon, the show will also feature TikTok star Sassa Gurl as Drag Runner and Miss Grand International 2016 first runner-up Nicole Cordoves as Drag Dealer.

Before the show premieres on Prime Video on December 8, let's get to know the queens who'll be vying for the crown.

O-A

O-A (pronounced as Odasha) was the first queen announced to be part of the Drag Den cast. This Nectar performer was chosen by fans to join the show, winning the public online vote. 

From photos on her Instagram, O-A serves glamorous and campy looks as well as does cosplay, transforming into The Incredibles' Elastagirl and characters from X-Men.
