Drag Queen Aura Mayari On RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 15
RuPaul’s Drag Race returned for season 15 and on a new network MTV. This season fans of the award-winning show will be meeting 16 queens. In addition, the program is offering the winner its largest prize ever: $200,000. And if that weren’t enough, RuPaul’s Drag Race will air its historic 200th episode in the following season.
January 6 sees the premiere of a two-part series. The official Emmy-winning show, RuPaul’s Drag Race: Untucked, will debut right after on MTV. With the exception of the twins, the season 15 cast consists of a diverse group of queens, including the drag sister of season 14 finalist Bosco and the drag daughter of season 14 star Kerri Colby.
Aura Mayari’s official bio reads: “It’s time to get caught up in the electrifying aura of Aura Mayari! This high-kicking, high-energy Filipina goddess is known for slaying the stages in Nashville. And watch out — because she brings a little sexy swagger to her drag.”
The drag queen also described herself as a “total performer,” adding that her drag style is “very edgy, very fashionable, very boss bitch vibe, queen of the night.”
When Aura saw Manila Luzon compete in Season 3, it gave her the idea to start doing drag. After Aura Eternal from the second season of Drag Race Italia, Aura Mayari is the second competitor in the Drag Race franchise to bear the moniker “Aura.” When Aura initially started doing drag, she briefly went by the moniker “Courtney Slays” because club owners and managers approached her and asked who she was, and she hadn’t yet thought of a drag name. She claimed that all night long, her pals had been referring to her as “Courtney” and had been raving about how hot she was.
Other cast members joining Aura this season are Amethyst, Irene Dubios, Malaysia Babydoll Foxx, Sugar, Spice, Princess Poppy, Jax, Anetra, Robin Fierce, Marcia Marcia Marcia, Salina EsTitties, Loosey LaDuca, Mistress Isabelle Brooks, Sasha Colby, and Luxx Noir London.
