OMG! Our pambansang “mima,” Sassa Gurl, joins the lineup of judges for the upcoming ‘Drag Den PH’ season 1.
On November 17, the official trailer of the second Drag Show in the Philippines was released. It revealed the panel of judges along with 8 contestants who will compete for the crown.
Sassa Gurl, who was cheekily introduced as the “drag runner,” will also be joined by the “drag dealer” Nicole Cordoves, the crowned Binibining Pilipinas Grand International 2016.
The TikTok sensation, who appeared in the trailer wearing a long gown and wig, made a funny remark about her appearance, even comparing it to 2018 Miss Universe Catriona Gray.

Fans were surprised, but definitely loved the idea of Sassa being part of the show, more so because she’s part of the panel of judges.
