However, the stakes are higher as there is a surprise waiting for the fans. The ten contestants who will compete in season 4 are Astrud Aurelia, Bitter Betty, Formelda Hyde, HoSo Terra Toma, Jade Jolie, Koco Caine, La Zavaleta, Merrie Cherry, Sigourney Beaver, and Saint, who is the winner of the special episode titled ‘Resurrection.’
What Is The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula About?
Every season, the Boulet Brothers bring together talented drag artists from all over the world. These artists compete against each other in an underground-style drag competition to win the title of “Drag Supermonster.” The reality series showcases subversive and alternative drag art while upholding the four principles of the show, “Drag,” “Filth,” “Horror,” and “Glamour.” At the beginning of the weekly episode, the Boulet Brothers lay down the day’s task before the audience.
The challenges range from costume creation, makeup, special effects to acting improvs and live performances. The judges’ panel decides a winner at the end of the episode. At the same time, those at the bottom must face the painful “extermination challenges” to prove their physiological and psychological strength and stay in the competition.
