Hannah Conda

Hannah has graced the British Werk Room with her signature Aussie charm after coming second in season two Drag Race Down Under – and we couldn’t be happier to have seen more Conda.

Although she didn’t nab a “RuPeter badge” until the season’s penultimate episode by winning her first lipsync, Hannah came out on top in two more episodes. This increases their “winning number” to three and the official “award number” to one.

Ms. Conda was also low only once in the relay’s ball sequence, but never in the bottom two. Add to that two safe cooking zones and an extra high position and you’re cooking with gas.

Hannah’s overarching storyline is that of a competitor who is non-stop Only Despite consistently strong performances, he missed out on this badge and found a pleasing conclusion in the Roast episode. Could she have another win – the big one – under her belt?

As for the fans, at the time of writing, our representative from Down Under has received a whopping 2,400 likes on her official #TeamHannah post, which is the lowest of any finalist. Is Hannah the official underdog for the crown?


La Grande Dame

As runner-up of Drag Race FranceIn the inaugural season it was once said: “FRAAAAAANCE!” La Grande Dame’s mix of quirky humor and breathtaking catwalk looks attracted phenomenal audiences Drag Race UK vs the World Season two.

In terms of winning, LGD – or “Dada” as her castmates call her – is the worst of the quartet, but that’s still only one top two finish less than Hannah and Marina. The French beauty came first in the talent show and ended up on top again in the following episode, with an additional lipsync win, meaning her “award number” is one, but the win number is two.

The LGD was low twice (and safe and high once each), but was only up for elimination once, by default in last week’s Roast episode.

While La Grande Dame started incredibly strong, her storyline was the only one in the top four to slip as the season progressed – supported by an absolutely phenomenal runway package. Not a single failure.

When it comes to fan support, her #TeamLaGrandeDame post has 3,000 likes at the time of writing – the third highest number.


Marina Summers

Little “Filipina Winnah” Marina Summers, many people’s clear choice for the crown, has, to put it politely, overwhelmed the competition. She lost the first one Drag Race Philippines The winner was Precious Paula Nicole, who came second, but that didn’t slow her dominance Drag Race Britain against the world.

Marina doesn’t have the highest “winning number”, but she has the most badges and has won the lipsync every time she’s been at the top. That means her “badge” and her “winning number” are the same, with three – and that’s three queens Ms. Summers sent into the house.

She was only at the bottom once (by default, in the same episode as LGD) and was safe, secure, and high in the remaining three episodes.

Marina’s storyline this season has mostly revolved around “The Marina Summers’, with an unbeatable badge count and as a fearsome lip syncer – it would make a lot of sense if the crown was on its way to the Philippines…

Marina’s social media numbers also dominate her peers’ top four: at the time of writing, she has a whopping 13,800 likes, putting her firmly in pole position and leaving the competition far behind.


Tia Kofi

British Queen Tia Kofi had an incredible coronation in season two Drag Race UK vs The World – and we couldn’t be happier to see it. Tia ended up in seventh place with no wins Drag Race UKSeason two, this time having a higher win total than Marina.

Tia was in the top two in four of the season’s seven challenges – and safe in the remaining three. She’s also won two of her lipsyncs for the world, meaning her “award count” is a solid two, bettered only by Marina in the top four.

As a classic redemption arc, Tia’s storyline was probably the most satisfying to watch after her first appearance, which can still be described as “appropriate” – and she’s also the only one in the top four that didn’t give her second place Original season.

On social media, Tia currently ranks second behind Marina in terms of fan support. Her official #TeamTia post generated 5,500.

As we say; It’s everyone’s business. The finale of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK vs the WorldSeason two will air on BBC Three and BBC iPlayerFriday at 9pm GMT.
