Meet the Judges
Joining us as a judge is the fabulous Owain Wyn Evans! Take a look at his amazing viral International Drag Day weather forecast which even garnered the approval of RuPaul herself!

Last year’s winner TomTyra! Since Drag Race 2017 so much has changed for Tom, who now lives in Gran Canaria and is the resident Drag Host at Mardi Gras in the Yumbo every week: “After winning Drag Race my confidence has gone from strength to strength! I’m confident to try new looks, try out different styles and embrace all that drag has to offer. Drag is always changing and that’s what’s so exciting about it! Plus I’ve learnt how to cover my brows…”

On the panel of judges this year is none other than Crudi Dench, co-founder and mother of the Haus of Dench. Crudi is the crude, loud and proud leader of the Denchers. With looks inspired by the club kids of New York and jokes as filthy as an old toilet brush, her performances are hilarious, inventive and legendary, making her the perfect judge.

Out of drag, Crudi is also an award-winning writer and comedian with work featured in film and arts festivals around the world.
