Beau Ryan Gets Extreme Makeover In Time For Mardi Gras

This year the drag gods have smiled upon us, with the release of RuPaul's Drag Race perfectly coinciding with Sydney Mardi Gras.

Yes, if there wasn't enough glitter dotting the streets, Season 12 of RuPaul's Drag Race premieres this Saturday night.

Featuring an all-new cast of queens ready to take the title of America's Next Drag Superstar, 13 queens will be hitting the workroom this weekend.

But there was one fledgling queen on the streets of Sydney who was serving all sorts of looks.

The host of The Amazing Race Australia and current competitor on Dancing With The Stars Beau Ryan got a full drag makeover in celebration of Drag RaceMardi Gras and his natural bone structure that honestly made him look fierce as hell.

Seriously, he looked damn good.

He reckons he has no idea how to dance, but that didn't stop 'The Amazing Race Australia' host Beau Ryan from joining this year's star-studded round-up for 'Dancing With The Stars'.

Decked out in a stunning wig, gorgeous blue fringe frock and eyelashes bigger than my hopes and dreams, Beau looked ready to compete in his very own spin-off, RuPaul's Amazing Drag Race.

Why Some People Will Be Dressing Up Rather Than Down At Mardi Gras 2020

While thousands gear up for the biggest LGBTIQ+ celebration of the year, Sydney Gaymers say Mardi Gras' message is about much more than drinking and glitter.

We're also just going to assume his heavy stubble was an homage to bearded queens like Conchita Wurst or Willam.

While Beau's looks may not be enough to stun the Drag Race judges, we're pretty amped to see the next crew of queens compete, especially after the extreme return to form that was RuPaul's Drag Race UK.

The queens have a lot to live up to, with 11 seasons in the bag, the wildly successful UK spin-off and four seasons of All Stars (plus a fifth on its way later this year).

We're just hoping Beau's new drag alter-ego makes an appearance on the dance floor sometime this season of Dancing with the Stars.

RuPaul's Drag Race Season 12 will debut Saturday, February 29 at 3pm AEST on STAN.

Dancing With The Stars airs Sundays at 7.30 on 10 and 10 Play.
