Fans clamor for Vice Ganda and Paolo Ballesteros to host Drag Race Philippines

Therefore, fans voiced out their picks on Twitter, especially for the host, who mostly wanted Vice and Paolo.

User @ratikyle wrote how the only “eligble person” to host Drag Race Philippines is the Unkabogable Box Office Star.

Another user wrote how Vice “eats and breathes Philippine pop culture” that is why he prefers the comedian to host.

Another user described Paolo as suitable to take over the duties as Drag Race Philippines host.

User @BayaniMark_ prefers either Vice or Paolo as the host.

A global franchise

RuPaul’s Drag Race, a reality competition search for “America’s Next Drag Superstar,” made its way to television screens in 2009.

Subsequently, it became a global franchise, spanning international editions from countries like Canada, Holland, Australia, and Britain.

On one hand, another local drag competition named Drag Den Philippines has announced open casting, with Drag Race contestant Manila Luzon as host.

Currently, interested queens who want to compete in Drag Race Philippines may apply on the show’s official website.
