Trivia[]

  • For the promo, contestants were oriented to use the colors of Brazil's flag (Green, Yellow, Blue, and White), having free creative choice regarding how to do their looks. Black was also a color they could include in their outfits.[13][14]
    • The promotional material was filmed on April 23, 2023, Rubi Ocean's birthday.[17]
  • Each episode took two days to film.[18]
  • Much like Drag Race México and Drag Race Germany, the series was filmed in Colombia, at Paramount's Television International Studios (known simply as TIS Productions).[19]
  • The season suffered from a few leaks, such as:
    • Low-quality frames of Meet the Queens leaked a week prior its official release, confirming all contestants except Betina Polaroid and Diva More;[20]
    • The season's trailer was published hours before planned on WOW Presents Plus, at the end of episode 1 of Drag Race Philippines Season 2, further confirming all of the contestants;[21]
    • Episode 9 leaked on Amazon Prime Video a week prior its official exhibition. It only got removed hours later;[22]
    • Screenshots of the tenth episode were posted on social media before the episode came out, revealing two runway looks.[23]
  • Like most series of the franchise, contestants were confined in a hotel during the entire filming, were not allowed to use their phones, and interactions amongst cast members were limited. While on set they could only talk to each other when cameras were on, the contestants were allowed to talk off-set, such as in the hotel during breakfast.[24]
  • Contestants were provided stipends for the production of their looks.[25]
    • Although the amount of money given is unknown, it is speculated to be something around $5,000, $8,000 or R$13,000.[26][27]
  • Queen Stars Season 1 contestant DaCota Monteiro and Lady Gaga impersonator Penelopy Jean were allegedly invited for this season.[26] It is unclear whether they were invited to compete or to audition.
  • Although recorded, the final group choreography for the videoclip of "Festa com Mozão" was edited out from the episode.[28] It is unknown why it was cut from the final edit.
  • The version of "Madrugatas" available on streaming services is a lot different than the one shown on the episode, featuring a better sound mixing and overall rhythm, additional ad-libs, and an extended Organzza verse.[29]
  • The double premiere was not planned, and was instead a way for production to overcome a logistical problem they faced.[30]
  • A song by Gretchen, the guest judge of Episode 1, was in the playlist of potential lip sync songs, but was never used.[31] It is rumored the song was "Conga, Conga, Conga".
  • Family connections this season include Betina Polaroid, Organzza, Shannon Skarllet and Caravana das Drags Season 1 contestant Ravena Creole. Shannon is the drag daughter of Organzza and granddaughter of Ravena Creole. Ravena is also the drag mother of Efêmera, former drag performer and Betina Polaroid's partner, making Betina Shannon's drag aunt.[32]
