At the ripe young age of 37, our predicted winner Sasha Colby is the most experienced queen for this 15th cycle. The beauty pageant queen is the “drag mother” of fan-fave contestant Kerri Colby from Season 14, who made it to ninth place. Both Sasha and Kerri are proudly transgender. Can Sasha now go even further than her daughter and claim the crown for her drag house.

Here is Sasha Colby’s MTV bio: “The iconic queen of the House of Colby has arrived! Known worldwide for her memorable reign as Miss Continental and as Kerri Colby’s drag mother, Sasha is a queen to be reckoned with. This Hawaiian-born goddess has been slaying drag stages for 20 years, so she’s got to live up to her legendary reputation. Serving body, beauty and bodacious all-around talent, Sasha is (officially) fierce.”

The first queen eliminated of Season 15 was Irene Dubois because of her cringe-worthy talent show performance in which she showed the judges how to make ice water. Anetra made a name for herself by winning the first challenge thanks to her hilarious lip sync and dance centered around ducks.

The second ousted queen was Princess Poppy after her forgettable performance in the “All Queens Go to Heaven” informercial challenge. Sasha Colby was the champion that week because of the way she had the judges laughing every time she pretended to crack her neck during the commercial.

Sugar became the third person to sashay away after her poor performance as Trisha Paytas in the “Snatch Game” episode. She actually was in the bottom two with her twin, Spice, but Ru decided to pour some Sugar out after their lip sync. Loosey LaDuca won the “Snatch Game” for her hilarious Joan Rivers impression.

The four queen eliminated from the competition was Amethyst, who found herself in the bottom for the third time during the “House of Fashion” challenge. Luxx Noir London won her first challenge that week thanks to her eye-popping Drag Race Fashion Week looks.

This year, Mama Ru is joined at the judging panel by regular judges Michelle Visage, Carson Kressley, Ross Mathews and new judge Ts Madison. The guest judges will include Ariana Grande, Maren Morris, Amandla Stenberg, Janelle Monáe, Ali Wong, Harvey Guillén, Hayley Kiyoko, Julia Garner, Megan Stalter and Orville Peck.
