Season 1 of Love For The Arts was officially announced via Trinity The Tuck's Instagram on July 26, 2020[1]. The show first aired on August 4th 2020 on her Twitch channel.

The performers went through an audition process in which a certain group of performers then were put through to the semi-final in which the public would vote the 10 performers to enter the competition.

Originally 10 performers were casted as shown in the promo but Spikey Van Dykey was announced to have quit the show at the start of Episode 1 due to personal reasons.

The performers compete to win custom gowns from Jeffrey Kelly Designs & Sew-excited, a "one of a kind hairstyle" from Shontelle Sparkles, custom accessories by Kalaqtic, a new brand logo by Danpolyak, a complete make-up package from BatMe Cosmetics, a "one of a kind" custom crown and a cash prize of $5000.
