Season 14 took the world of Candyland to a whole new level and created a lookalike gameboard to match the show’s theme. RuPaul’s version of the classic game highlighted different stops along the game like “Ice Cream Werkroom,” “Glitter Lake,” and “Rock Candy Runway.”

RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 14 Cast

The Season 14 cast welcomes the show’s first cis straight male contestant Maddy Morphosis, Season 11 winner Yvie Oddly’s drag sister Willow Pill, and Season 12 finalist Crystal Methyd’s drag sister Daya Betty. Still, all 14 queens have a shot at winning the title of America’s Next Drag Superstar. Let’s meet the contestants!

  • Alyssa Hunter - Hailing from San Juan, Puerto Rico, this queen won her first pageant at the age of 18. Just kidding though, because she was actually 16 and lied about her age during the competition.
  • Angeria Paris VanMicheals - Angeria has loads of quotable sayings from her Meet the Queens and pokes fun of her southern background, “I think when people first meet me, I think they say 'Oh my god, he is so lovely', and then I open my mouth, and then they say 'this b*tch is country as hell.’"
  • Bosco - This Seattle-based queen is a true animal lover and got her stage name from her family dog.
  • Daya Betty - This queen is the first Type 1 Diabetic on the show. And she’s totally an optimist given her stage name is a play on the word ‘diabetic.’
  • DeJa Skye - We love a Beyoncé stan. Deja has taken inspiration from B’s song “Deja Vú” to create her stage name.
  • Jasmine Kennedie - This New Yorker is truly Generation Ru, getting her start in the drag scene at a young age and quickly building a name for herself in one of the most competitive drag scenes there is.
  • Jorgeous - Perhaps the most brilliant play on names, Jorgeous is the stage name to 21-year-old Jorge.
  • June Jambalaya - Based in Los Angeles, this queen calls herself the Real Housewife of Drag.
  • Kerri Colby - Kerri is one of the two trans women competing this season and is super confident the title could be hers. After all, she hails from the legendary House of Colby.
  • Kornbread Jeté - Kornbread also identifies as trans. She’s bound to make fans laugh this season as she rose to popularity doing comedy on Brandon Rogers’ YouTube channel.
  • Lady Camden - This queen has crossed the pond from the UK to Sacramento, California. She is no stranger to Drag Race and has hosted RuPaul’s Drag Race UK viewing parties at the Beaux in San Fransisco.
  • Maddy Morphosis - Already making headway for being the show’s first straight male contestant, this queen will be one to watch.
  • Orion Story - Michigan fans have a queen to root for as Orion is the show’s first contestant to be based in the Mitten State.
  • Willow Pill - Drag sister of Yvie Oddly, Willow is ready to freak fans out with another serving of avant-garde looks out of Denver, Colorado.

Get ready for a fabulous race, because Drag Race Season 14 will kick off a week into 2022 on Jan. 7.
