RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 14 Episode 14 Release Date
Season 14 of RuPaul’s Drag Race Episode 14 premieres on April 8, 2022. It will have a two-part premiere on VH1 in the United States on April 8, 2022, at 8 p.m. ET/PT. In Canada, we’re hopeful that Crave and OutTV will play RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 14 at the same time.
There’s a chance the episode will be moved to BBC iPlayer in the UK. Finally, it appears that WOW Present Plus’s new streaming service will be the show’s only home. Netflix may continue to acquire the rights to RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 14 on an international level.
Season 14 of RuPaul’s Drag Race was unofficially launched in November of 2020. The casting process was completed in January. With the Covid-19 restrictions easing, the start of production was set for early May 2021.
The candidates were confined, and filming was completed in June. VH1 stated on November 23, 2021, that the full new cast for RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 14 will be revealed on December 2, 2021.
RuPaul will host the upcoming season, which will be produced by World of Wonder Productions.
RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 14 Plot
As a result, RuPaul will serve as host, mentor, and top judge for Season 14 of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Aside from RuPaul, judges such as Michelle Visage, Carson Kressley, and Ross Matthews may occasionally join the show to judge and critique the competitors.
On the other hand, the format remains the same as most reality shows. The contestants send their films to the production firm, where RuPaul evaluates them and selects their own cast.
Following the casting of the cast, each episode features the Drag stars competing in various challenges. This can take the shape of maxi and mini-challenges.
Every episode will also include one of the candidates quitting the show after failing to win the challenge. The same pattern repeats as the season progresses, with only one winner taking home the $100,000 top prize.
So, what exactly are these “maxi” and “mini” challenges? Maxi difficulties usually come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Singing, acting, sketch comedies, dance, and makeovers are just some of the options.
Aside from individual challenges, there are frequently group challenges. The second, like the first, is frequently the first obstacle in most episodes. They are designed to test the contestants’ ability to think quickly about what news they can bring in in a short period of time.
As a result, Mini-Challenge creates quick challenges like Everybody Loves Puppets, in which contestants use a puppet to play around with. Mini-challenges have an advantage of their own, and if it’s a group challenge, the participant has the opportunity to become a captain.
RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 14 New Cast
The cast of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 14 is led by 26-year-old Alyssa Hunter. She was born in Catao, Puerto Rico. From home runway lessons to Pagent contests and now RuPaul’s Drag Race, she has done it all.
Alyssa Hunter is a name to keep an eye on. Angeria Paris VanMicheals, 27, of Atlanta, Georgia, is a rising star who admits to being frightened at times, but it is her work that has kept her going thus far and may continue to do so in the future.
Bosco, a 28-year-old Seattle native, brings a grunge mood to the stage. However, she admits that she did not fall for it.
It could be her prosthetic makeup experiments or her Catholic heritage, as evidenced by her audition tapes. Now we’re talking to Daya Betty, a 25-year-old woman from Springfield, Missouri.
She began as Daya throughout her undergraduate days and derives her moniker from Type 1 Diabetic problems. She has gotten this far by expressing herself, and she sees art as a form of community acknowledgment.
Deja Skye, a 31-year-old from Fresno, California, is up next. She may have been afraid of the world when she was younger, but as an adult, she now stands up to them. With her bright drag aesthetic, she’s here to push the envelope.
Jasmine Kennedie, 22, from New York City, New York, brings her dancing skills and a dash of mental gymnastics to the table. Probably because she was so into sports, and we’re all into sports.
Jorgeous, a 21-year-old from Nashville, Tennessee, is the show’s youngest participant this season. She began at the age of 16, bringing her self-taught dancing skills as well as her Mexican heritage. Not to mention the fact that she’s already a local celebrity. The next phase in her career will be on RuPaul’s Drag Race.

Kerri Colby, a 24-year-old Los Angeles native, contributes the hard work of a lifetime to our image. She believes the public hasn’t seen much of her so far, but this glam and drag is her way of surviving and revealing herself to the world.
Kornbread “The Snack” Jeté, 29, is the show’s third Los Angeles native. She has spent her entire life immersed in art; nothing frightens her, and she has a lot of crazy ideas in her head that we may see on our televisions in the future.
Lady Camden, 31, is a trained Ballet dancer who has performed for Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles. Ballet has a special place in her heart, and we’re excited to see what she can bring to the stage with this combination.
Maddy Morphosis, 26, from Fayetteville, Arkansas, is the show’s first straight, cis male. She’s gone from one job to the next since discovering herself, and she’s currently on RuPaul’s Drag Race.
Orion Story, 25, from Grand Rapids, Michigan, creates havoc in her drags. Chaotic has always been about that.
She is mixing a variety of things to ensure that no one feels at ease when she performs. Finally, Willow Pill, a 26-year-old drag performer from Denver, Colorado, adds a hallucinogenic twist to her act.
Despite suffering from illness in her younger years, her passion for drag has kept her going, and she is now taking it to a wider audience with RuPaul’s Drag Race moving on.
