Memorable Quotes

Trivia

  • Art is the first person to co-host a Drag Race competition along with Pangina Heals.
  • Although Pangina and her are technically equal as hosts, Art seem to take more of the role of a "RuPaul of Thailand", being the one who presentes the runway, the judges, the one saying "The time has come for you to lip sync for your life, and don't fuck it up", and the one who eliminates the contestants.
  • Unlike RuPaul, Art usually dresses to fit (or at least resemble) the runway theme of the corresponding episode.
  • Art was absent in the second half of the 10th episode of Season 2 due to schedule conflicts, since she was a Master Mentor in the fifth season of The Face Thailand at the time. This caused fellow co-host, Pangina Heals, to assume the charge and decide which queens would move on to the Top 5.
