Episode 0: "Casting Special"

Ep 0 Judging Panel
Art Arya, Tae Piyarat, and Pangina Heals (from left to right)

Airdate: January 7, 2019

Summary: In this casting special, the talents of many drag artists were tested in order to become a finalist for Season 2. The artists were first tasked with creating a look for a doll, with limited materials and time, with the judging focus on sewing and creativity. Next the artists were asked to perform a lip sync in front of a judging panel. The judging panel—consisting of Art Arya, Pangina Heals, and Tae Piyarat—then held interviews with the contestants, focusing on their personal experiences as performers and people. In the end, the judges decided who the 14 contestants will be, but refrained from revealing who. Pangina teasingly exclaimed "We can't reveal who they are just yet. You will find out in the next episode, just wait. I'm telling you now, it will be fierce!"
