Who are the Drag Race Philippines host and judges?
Drag Race Philippines is hosted by Paolo Ballesteros (@pochoy_29), a queen, celebrity impersonator, and comedian known in the Philippines as one of the hosts of the long-running variety series Eat Bulaga! Joining Paolo as regular judges are Jiggly Caliente (@jigglycalienteofficial) and KaladKaren (@kaladkaren). Jiggly Caliente previously competed on RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 4 and RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 6. KaladKaren rose to fame impersonating journalist Karen Davila and has since become a TV presenter and host in her own right.
Is Drag Race Philippines in Tagalog or English?
Drag Race Philippines may be a Filipino series, but it will broadcast primarily in English (that’s because English is one of the official languages of the Philippines, BTW). However, portions will be broadcast in the nation’s other official language, Tagalog. Those portions should be automatically presented with English subtitles.
Just in case, though, if you start watching Drag Race Philippines and the subtitles are not on, click on the “CC” box on the bottom right of the video player window and select “English.”
