Ahead of the season 11 premiere of RuPaul’s Drag Race on Thursday night (February 28), the production company behind the hit show has released a teaser from the kickoff episode featuring special guest Miley Cyrus, who is seen going undercover in drag to shock the new batch of queens.
In the new teaser for the episode, which was posted on World of Wonder’s Instagram account, the 26-year-old pop star is seen dressed up a cre member named “Barry ‘B.J.’ Johnson” with a fake beard, glasses and an outfit similar to any other production assistant. “I am the guest judge on this week’s panel, but first, I wanted to go undercover with the ladies,” Cyrus says in her confessional clip. “So, I’m going in as a crew member. They’re never gonna know what hit ’em.” Cyrus is just one of the famous faces set to appear on the new season of the Emmy-winning TV competition, including Troye Sivan, Tiffany Pollard, Lena Waithe, Cara Delevigne and many more.
As for their first challenge, the 14 contestants will need to creature signature looks from materials belonging to former Drag Race cast members. Among the new queens include A’keria Chanel Daveport, Ariel Versace, Brooke Lynn Hytes, Honey Davenport, Kahana Montrese, Mercedes Iman Diamond, Nina West, Plastique Tiara, Ra’jah O’Hara, Scarlet Envy, Shuga Cain, Silky Nutmeg Ganache, Soju, Yvie Oddly, and the big return of Vanessa Vanjie Mateo.
