Last month it was announced that Jonathan Ross (the host of the British talk show, The Jonathan Ross Show) wanted to produce a UK version of RuPaul's Drag Race! According to Gay Star News, Ross bought the rights to produce the series, and is planning to do so alongside drag superstar Jodie Harsh.
So what's the big new update this week? On their most recent podcast, Michelle Visage and RuPaul discuss this possibility of hosting the series themselves!
'I think it has to be you, me and a Brit, obviously,’ she said, ‘And then take it from there. [The British public] are going to want the real deal. They want you there. They want me there.’ -GayStarNews.com
Ru had mixed feelings on the topic:
'I think it makes sense if they got an English host with English humor and English drag slang and all that stuff to be the host... I would love to do it, but if I were Jonathan Ross I would probably hire someone else.’ -GayStarNews.com
We can't wait to see what comes of this news! What do you think about the UK version of Drag Race? Do you think Ru and Michelle should host it?
