Valentina is heading south of the border for a special assignment…
The 32-year-old Mexican American drag performer, actor, television personality and singer, whose real name is James Andrew Leyva, will serve as one of the hosts of the all-new “Drag Race México,” the latest series in the Drag Race franchise.
Valentina rose to acclaim as a fan favorite on Season 9 of RuPaul’s Drag Race and later returned for Season 4 of the all-stars edition.
Valentina’s other credits include Drag Tots, Rent: Live, AJ and the Queen and La Casa de las Flores.
Valentina will be joined by Lolita Banana,
Lolita Banana was the first Mexican-born contestant to compete in a Drag Race series, and last year, starred in the first season of Drag Race France.
MTV, Paramount+ and World of Wonder announced the new hosts on Friday at DragCon Los Angeles.
Contestants for the season have yet to be released.
