'RuPaul's Secret Celebrity Drag Race': 3 celebs join pilot episode, but fans don't seem to know who they are
Fans were clueless about Jermaine Fowler, Jordan Connor and Nico Tortorella who appeared on the pilot episode of 'RuPaul's Secret Celebrity Drag Race'
When 'RuPaul's Secret Celebrity Drag Race' was announced, fans were super excited at the thought of watching a celebrity tap into their drag persona. It was revealed that 12 celebrities would appear this season, but the details of these celebrities were kept under wraps, which added to the intrigue.
So, with very high hopes we tuned in to the pilot episode of the much-awaited secret celebrity drag race, with hopes of seeing at least one of our favorite celebrities on screen.
We were first introduced to the Queen Supremes aka the winners of previous seasons of 'RuPaul's Drag Race'. Fans were thrilled to see Trixie Mattel, Monét X Change, and Bob the Drag Queen.
So fans waited with bated breath to see the celebrities the showrunners managed to rope in, and one by one we were introduced to the three celebrities — Jordan Connor ('Riverdale'), Nico Tortorella ('Younger') and Jermaine Fowler ('Superior Donuts').
Most fans were left wondering who these three men were, and where the celebrities were. To say that fans were left feeling disappointed with these three men being passed off as celebrities would be an understatement.
Several fans took to their Twitter to express their disappointment. A fan tweeted, "I wasn't expecting Chris Evans and Chris Pratt and Jonny Depp to walk into the werkroom but I thought I'd at least know who they were. #CelebDragRace."
Another fan wrote, "#CelebDragRace Are the participants known? maybe. Are they celebrities? hell nah." One viewer shared, "No shade, but, who are these people? #CelebDragRace."
Few fans pointed out that the Queen Supremes were more famous than the celebrities. A fan shared, "When the queens are more famous than the contestants on Celebrity Drag Race LOL #CelebDragRace."
Another wrote, "15 minutes in and they're STILL managing to keep the celebrities on this episode a secret. Peak suspense TV, if you ask me. #CelebDragRace," joked a fan.
A viewer expressed, "If I knew E-list celebrities were going to be on the show I would have applied. #CelebDragRace." One fan wondered, "Ok wait... they said there were gonna be CELEBRITIES on #CelebDragRace. Well, where are they?"
