La Más Draga
1 2 3 4

La Más Draga (English Lit. Translation: The Draggest) is the first season of the reality show series transmitted by YouTube, produced by La Gran Diabla Producciones, and which is based on the format of the RuPaul's Drag Race show, adapted to Mexican pop culture.

The program shows the competition where it's looked for the "más draga", which means best drag queen, in Mexico (but this season focuses only on Mexico City) through runways, some challenges and a final performance.

This season saw the singer, actress, beauty queen and LGBT icon, Lorena Herrera as the main host and head judge of the show. In addition, Johnny Carmona (LGBT activist and social media celebrity), Yari Mejía (makeup artist, stylist and professional designer) and Letal (makeup artist and drag queen) were part of the panel of judges, which critiqued the progress of the contestants during the competition, along with various guest judges.

The theme song of the season was "Soy La Más", and it was interpreted by Lorena Herrera.
