Aaahh!!! Real Monsters: The Contestants of ‘Dragula’ Season 3 Introduce Themselves

It all started as a raunchy L.A. party, and it’s since become a full-on pop culture phenomenon. The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula began as a party-cum-pageant in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles, where performers of all types — drag queens, kings, AFAB (assigned female at birth) queens and everything in between — competed for the title of Dragula, “drag supermonster.”

The next incarnation of Dragula was as a full-fledged web series, where contestants competed in a reality TV format audiences knew and loved. Now it’s transforming once again, making the jump to one of the world’s largest streaming platforms, Amazon Prime Video, for Dragula Season 3. (In Canada it will also air on cable network OutTV, and in New Zealand on TVNZ.)

Despite Dragula‘s transformation over the years, the same spirit of inclusion that colored those early club days is still apparent in its present-day format as a polished reality TV competition. Dragula Season 3 made headlines as the first televised drag competition to feature both a drag king and a female drag artist competing alongside drag queens for a crown and cash prize.

“It was commonplace at our event to feature queer performers from all walks of life,” the Boulet Brothers tell Hornet. “We’ve always wanted the show to match that diversity — it’s our ultimate vision for the show’s future. It’s a little uncomfortable to have people praising us for including drag kings, AFAB queens and nonbinary performers on the show, because the show is a reflection of our community, and the fact is, these people are as much a part of our community as cisgender gay men are.”

Launching Tuesday, Aug. 27, in the United States and 63 countries around the world, the Boulet Brothers are excited to unveil a brand-new season of jaw-dropping drag, fear-based challenges and celebrity cameos. Appearing on Dragula Season 3 are none other than Henry Rollins, The Craft star Rachel True, NYC nightlife legend Amanda Lepore and more.

Asked what we can expect from the brand-new season, the Boulets say fans will be pleasantly surprised: “I think people are going to be shocked at how much the show has grown, as far as the production and the level of talent and guest judges that have gotten involved. The whole thing is just getting so much bigger, and we can’t wait for people to see it. At heart we are artists and producers, so seeing our life’s work become more fully realized and being able to share that with so many misfits across the world is what makes us get up and keep going everyday.”

And a show like this would be nothing without its contestants, so with that in mind, in advance of the Aug. 27 premiere of Dragula Season 3, Hornet wants to introduce fans to the 11 contestants who will be proving their skills at costume design, special effects makeup, acting and performance art.

Meet the 11 contestants of Dragula Season 3:

1. Priscilla Chambers

What is your hometown? Asheville, North Carolina is home!

How do you describe your personal aesthetic? Who is Priscilla Chambers? My personal aesthetic could be described as an even more trashy Tonya Harding with a mix of Priscilla Presley. Very ’70s, very trailer and a very perty mouth. Priscilla is just your average Miss American Scream.

Probably going to have moments of disassociation where I can’t really believe that’s me on TV and what that means to viewers at home. But I’m excited to get to be seen by so many more humans watching my every move!

4. Hollow Eve

dragula season 3 hollow

What is your hometown? San Francisco

How do you describe your personal aesthetic? Who is Hollow Eve? My aesthetic is revolution and destruction in the name of creation. Think black hole. I like simple garments wrapped in complex layers of ideas, which are often communicated through elastic and body modification but not limited to them. Hollow Eve is a post-binary drag socialist with a penchant for anarchy. I challenge every fear I encounter in order to find freedom and empower others to do the same. I am Hollow, a space to be filled with whatever idea has possessed me. I am a filthy, boundary breaking punk who is outspoken, loud, passionate and really INTENSE.

Your childhood imaginary friend turned evil after you abandoned it.
