In further proof that Drag Race is taking over the world, Trixie Mattel and Katya now have their own Netflix series
Drag Race All Stars 3 winner and skinny legend Trixie Mattel and should-have-been Drag Race All Stars 2 winner Katya have been handed a new Netflix series.
The two queens have teamed up for I Like To Watch, a new Gogglebox-style TV recap show on Netflix’s YouTube channel.
In each episode, the queens will watch and critique a different Netflix series, starting with The Crown season 3.
“The Crown is an incredible show where we’re changing lives by bringing correctional dentistry to rural areas,” jokes Trixie as the episode begins.
Naturally, the chat quickly digresses into soft-porn re-enactments, incest and Aaron Carter’s face tattoo.
Judging by the comments on the first episode, the series is already a hit.
“Pink one so terrify me with her level of skinny,” one fan wrote. “We have to stan these biological women of class.”
“Katya’s wig is giving me Marie Antoinette after decapitation realness,” wrote another.
After competing together on season 7 of RuPaul’s Drag Race, Trixie and Katya have collaborated on a number of projects including their critically acclaimed web series UNHhhh and its Viceland spin-off, The Trixie & Katya Show.
The latter project was interrupted when Katya suffered a drug relapse which prompted a “complete and total psychotic break from reality.” She subsequently entered rehab and took a year off to recover.
The aftermath of Katya’s breakdown is explored in Trixie’s upcoming documentary, Moving Parts.
“It’s something everybody can relate to: two friends going through a patch that there’s no handbook to,” Trixie told EW.
Confirming that she had Katya’s blessing for the film, she explained that it was important to her to be honest.
“There’s a day [in here] that was probably one of the worst days of our lives.
“It was a moment in life where everyone’s heart hit the floor and no one knew what to do.
LGBT+ people in general are many times more likely to struggle with mental illness, and editing out moments that make people uncomfortable has never been the Trixie Mattel style.
“Keeping things in the dark perpetuates them in a bad way [and] it’s real for a friendship to have a bump that either doesn’t know how to address at the time.”
“We were both very uncomfortable watching it, but that’s exactly how it was and how it felt.”
