ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: RuPaul's Drag Race queens launch new drag competition series Call Me Mother

Peppermint, Crystal, and Canadian performer Barbada will lead a new TV show pitting three drag houses against each other for a major prize.


By Joey NolfiJune 03, 2021 at 09:07 AM EDT Three legendary mothers of drag are coming together to teach the children. RuPaul's Drag Race alum Peppermint, RuPaul 's Drag Race UK star Crystal, and Canadian performer Barbada will lead the new OUTtv competition series Call Me Mother, which will pit the trio's individual drag houses against each other across eight weeks for the title of "First Child of Drag" and a prize package valued at $50,000.

Drag artist contestants will be divided into three houses, each led by a mother queen: Peppermint's House of Dulcet, Crystal's House of Glass, and Barbada's House of Harmonie will engage in various challenges, with the mother of each week's losing house determining which of her drag children will be eliminated from the contest.

"I can't wait to see what fresh talent Canada has to offer. I'm particularly interested in exploring drag that doesn't have as much mainstream representation," Peppermint said in a press statement, while Crystal added: "I loved filming the series and I can't wait for viewers to meet our gorgeous, adopted families. Viewers can expect warmth, humour, diversity, lewks and bucketloads of talent. You're going to DIE!"
