Marina Summers, the runner-up from Season 1 of ‘Drag Race Philippines,’ is gearing up to represent the Philippines in the highly anticipated sophomore season of ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race: UK vs. the World.’
The official cast for Season 2 of ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race: UK vs. the World’ was unveiled on Saturday, with Marina Summers being the sole Asian representative and proudly carrying the title of ‘Filipina Winner.’
Marina’s stylist, Paul Sese, shared details about her promotional look, which pays homage to Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach. Marina donned a stunning royal blue mermaid gown crafted by Albert Andrada, the same designer behind Pia’s iconic winning look.
In an Instagram post, Paul expressed excitement about Marina’s participation, proclaiming, “Taking over the universe, the WORLD rather. World domination of the hottest Asian sensation.”
