Trivia[]

  • Marina Summers hosts The Stop Over, an unofficial recap series for Drag Race Philippines season 2 inspired by the show The Pit Stop. The show airs on her YouTube channel, with guests for each episode being her fellow contestants from season 1, as well as other Filipino drag queens who have competed in a televised drag competition.
    • She was unable to review Episode 4 of Season 2 due to being hospitalized for a high fever. Her guest for the episode was meant to be Eva Le Queen.[7]
      • Eva Le Queen eventually became a guest on the show, with Marina and her reviewing Episode 6 from the second season.
    • Despite being an unofficial recap show for Drag Race Philippines, judges BJ Pascual, Jiggly Caliente, and KaladKaren, as well as host Paolo Ballesteros, have all acknowledged the show from comments on Marina's Instagram profile.[8][9]
  • As revealed on Bring Back My Girls, Marina's favorite Maxi Challenge from her season of Drag Race Philippines was the Girl Group Challenge.
  • With her appearance on the second season of RuPaul's Drag Race UK vs The World, Marina became the first contestant from Drag Race Philippines to be judged by RuPaul.
  • The song that Marina Summers performed during the Talent Show, "AMAFILIPINA", is a remixed cover of the song "AMAKABOGERA" by Filipino actress and singer Maymay Entrata[10], which was first used as a lip-sync song on Episode 6 during her season of Drag Race Philippines. It retained the original song's pre-chorus and chorus during its second verse.
  • Marina is the first contestant on RuPaul's Drag Race UK vs The World to win three Lip Syncs for the World, therefore obtaining three Golden RuPeter Badges.
  • Marina is the first finalist on any Drag Race season to have lip synced against each of her fellow finalists (Hannah Conda, La Grande Dame, and Tia Kofi) prior to the finale.
