RuPaul’s Drag Race returned for its 14th season on 7 January 2022 with drag queens competing for the top spot like old times. The new season showcases 14 new queens competing for the title of “America’s Next Drag Superstar”. (Of course) among them is Alyssa Hunter and we are now going to talk just about her and her journey in the American reality competition series, in this ‘Alyssa Hunter Bio’.
Alyssa Hunter On RuPaul’s Drag Race
Other than welcoming Maddy Morphosis, the show’s first-ever heterosexual, cisgender male contestant since the series began in 2009, the VH1 show features Alyssa other contestants Angeria Paris Van, Micheals, Bosco, Daya Betty, Deja Skye, Jorgeous, June Jambalaya, Kerri Colby, Cornbread “The Snack” Jeté, Lady Camden, Orion Story, and Willow Pill.
So, on this seasons’ first episode “Big Opening #1”, Alyssa turned out to be safe, unlike Orion Story who got eliminated. Still, Alyssa did not get as lucky as Kornbread “The Snack” Jeté who won the round.
Anyway, there is going to be more opportunity for Alyssa to prove herself and in case she outperforms the rest in the finale she will be able to take home a year’s supply of Anastasia Beverly Hills cosmetics, a hefty $100,000 in cash, and the title of “America’s Next Drag Superstar” (of course).
With the dialogues like “I hope you guys are ready to be slain because it’s hunting season, bi*****”, Alyssa not just oozed pageant queen gorgeousness but also seemed quite ready/confident to take the crown.
