Social media icons, Tyler Oakley, Kingsley, Frankie Grande and Anthony Padilla (just to name a few) were all guests on this week’s episode of Ru Paul’s Drag Race.

As the Youtube stars tried their best efforts to take on the looks of the final six, they showed how they were made for this competition, as the social media kings turned into queens, strutting their stuff down the walkway in true drag style.

For many, the show has helped people to express who they truly are and provides a community for those who have come out, or are still in the process of trying to understand themselves, and it has played a big part in the participating YouTubers’ lives, as Raymond Braun expressed how the show has helped him through dark times and provided inspiration.


For fans at home, having the six YouTubers on the show was a dream come true, and for some, a very specific dream.

It appears that the contestants on the show were more than grateful to have met the social media stars, and in turn they were as equally happy to have worked together on the show this week.

It’s clear that there are some new queens on the block, and if they were contestants in the show, I think I speak for everyone when I say, “Shantay, you stay.”


Do you think the social media queens gave the contestants a run for their money? Who would you like to see on future seasons of RuPaul’s Drag Race? Let us know in the comments, or on Twitter at @WhatsTrending.
