  • Queen of Drags [German reality show]

    German TV station ProSieben has licensed the official RuPaul‘s Drag Race franchise, however RuPaul herself is not planned for the roles as presenter and jury head - instead reports claim it is Heidi Klum. Bill Kaulitz of Tokio Hotel - his twin brother and band mate Tom is married to Heidi - is said to be part of the jury.

    ProSieben is also showing Germany‘s Next Topmodel by Heidi Klum which had its strongest ratings in years this season.

    Update: It seems like it's not an official franchise after all.

      Wait, not one drag queen in the jury? Well that's a choice.

          I am not surprised.
          I am not trying to seduce you... Would you like me to seduce you? Is that what you're trying to tell me?

              I knew this would happen at one point but Heidi Klum and Bill Kaulitz - really?

              They should hire Olivia Jones as the head judge tbh

                No drag queen in the jury? BTW isn't Bill still in the closet?

                  I don't think it's final that there will only Bill and Heidi. And if so, they had a new guest judge every week for Germany's Next Topmodel as far as I know and might do the same for this with Drag Queens

                      So this will officially be called Queen of Drags, filming has already started, Conchita Wurst has joined the judge panel and they still want to air it this Fall!

                      Good news!

                        This will finally start on the 14th November.

                        Plus Olivia Jones will be a guest judge on the first episode (for those who don't know her; she's probably the most popular German Drag Queen). Thank god she's at least somehow a part of this

                          The judges panel is kinda tragic, isn't it

                            Completely tragic. To not have a drag queen be the lead judge is just wrong.

                              Agreed. But that's typical ProSieben (the broadcaster). They do it for the money/popularity and not for what the show is actually for. I'm glad they got Conchita at least...

                                The license should come with certain requirements though. Certain quiz shows actually have a very tight description of how the host is supposed to behave in that quiz format and when you license it you have to do it like that. It's strange that RPDR didn't do something like that with the license.

                                  ^ True.

                                  But hey, as for now these are thoughts based on what was announced so far. Maybe Heidi (and Bill) actually turn out to be decent judges.

                                    Ok, the trailers for this actually look very promising and LaToya & Leona Lewis are two further guest judges. My expectations just rose a lot!

                                      I hope this airs with subtitles as I'd love to watch it. The trailer makes it look amazing

                                        Here's the latest trailer.

                                        Looks like they will live in a house together, but there are also some scenes from a workroom. Plus the main stage seems to be like a real stage (with an audience behind the judges) and it kinda looks like they have to put on a show there.

                                        Will be interesting how similar it will be to RuPaul's Drag Race. I think it will end up as a mix between RPDR and Germany's Next Topmodel.

                                        Also, I'm actually really hyped for Conchita!

                                                  Idk… so many drag queen shows lately, mess.
                                                  Heidi? Not rlly sure...

                                                  BUT I'm glad drag is exposed this much lately… that's a good thing.
