Trivia

  • Laila McQueen, Mayhem Miller, and Shannel were credited as creative consultants and appeared off-camera to help with the celebrities' makeup:
    • Laila painted Jordan Connor (Ep. 1), Tami Roman (Ep. 2), Dustin Milligan (Ep. 3), and Hayley Kiyoko (Ep. 4).
    • Mayhem painted Jermaine Fowler (Ep. 1), Loni Love (Ep. 2), Alex Newell (Ep. 3), and Phoebe Robinson (Ep. 4).
    • Shannel painted Nico Tortorella (Ep. 1), Vanessa Williams (Ep. 2), Matt Iseman (Ep. 3), and Madison Beer (Ep. 4).
      • Shannel caused some drama on social media after the airing of episode four when she branded Madison Beer the worst client she'd ever worked with and called her a "nightmare" in tweets that were later deleted.
  • Episode 1 received backlash as they didn't air the Drag Race creative consultants/make up artists painting the celebrities. Due to this, World of Wonder uploaded a bonus video of episode 1 to YouTube with Shannel giving makeup advice to the celebrity contestants, entitled "Just the Tip!", followed by advice segments for the celebrities featuring Raven, Mayhem Miller and Laila McQueen.
