It’s almost time to start your engines: We finally know who’s completing the “Drag Race Philippines” trinity. Trans TV host and celebrity impersonator KaladKaren has been announced as one of the show’s permanent judges alongside trans “Drag Race” alum Jiggly Caliente. Yup, we have two trans women as our judges. As KaladKaren and Caliente tweeted, this is girl power and a win for trans Pinays.
“Drag Race Philippines” revealed stunning photos of KaladKaren and Jiggly Caliente in a post today with the caption, “Come thru, Judgey Judies! 👑🇵🇭 Meet your TWO permanent judges of @dragraceph: @jigglycalienteofficial and @kaladkaren!”
It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise for KaladKaren to join the roster. Back in January, KaladKaren shared photos with her co-judge Caliente and “Drag Race PH” host Paolo Ballesteros from the time they attended “The UnkabogaBALL 2021” hosted by Vice Ganda.
We’re interested to find out how this panel of judges will compare to that of “Drag Race.” Watch out, Michelle Visage, Carson Kressley, and Ross Mathews!
