RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under fans have ignited a bizarre theory that RuPaul didn’t actually film the new series in person and instead recorded their scenes remotely on a green screen.
Viewers have been flooding the likes of Reddit and Twitter with their suspicions, citing ‘production quality’ as the cause of their doubts.
‘I feel like RuPaul isn’t actually there,’ one user wrote. ‘It could be the weird camera angles that are making me question him actually being there, but especially through the walkthrough, Ru usually goes around the room and talks to the queens.
‘We didn’t really see any shots of the queens and RuPaul during the snatch game. Does anyone agree or am I being delusional?’
Another user agreed, and added: ‘I think the quality of production is in question here. Everything just seems… off. And under budget.’
‘I thought it was just me! Something seems so weirdly off about the way they’re shooting this show compared to US/UK versions,’ a third said.

Eliminated queen Art Simone, who was the second contestant to bow out of the competition in episode two, has dispelled the hearsay.
‘Just here to quash the rumours that RuPaul was green-screened onto set,’ she penned on Twitter.
‘There’s no way we would have the budget after we splurged on those beautiful cement cherubs.’
Well, that settles it then.
Art recently opened up to Metro.co.uk about her dramatic exit from the series, defending her iconic ‘that means nothing’ line.
‘I was responding in the moment to how upset I was and the producer saying “but you were here” is almost as if they’d just patted me on the back to say “you tried”,’ she said.
‘When someone dies, you don’t go to their family member and say “well, they lived”. She was reminding me of what I lost.’
RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under airs Sundays on BBC iPlayer.
