The Prime Minister of Canada is the first head of state to join Drag Race– franchise.

Justin Trudeau will guest star in this spin-off series Canadian Drag Race.

The Canadian Press reports.

With that, the Prime Minister of Canada became the first world leader to enter a popular reality competition.

Drag Race– the franchise started with America RuPaul’s Drag Race, and then expanded to include versions in other countries. The concept is to find the next drag superstar.

International version

Justin Trudeau will be seen on screen on Canadian Drag Race: Canada Vs. World. This is an international one all Stars-version, in which drag artists from previous seasons around the world took part.

Canadian Drag Race has posted a photo on Instagram showing Trudeau next to drag queen and host Brooke Lynn Hytes.

Those looking forward to seeing the Prime Minister compete in drag may be disappointed, as The Canadian Press wrote that the image is from the part of a series where participants receive “words of inspiration before the episode’s main challenge”.
