“Let’s relive our nights in Manila… who’s your bet? Drag Den premieres WORLDWIDE this December 8!” the show’s official page stated.

Drag queen Maria Cristina was noticeably absent from the trailer, though teaser photos from “Drag Den Philippines'” Twitter page last Nov. 25 showed her costume was inspired by feng shui ornaments in Binondo.

Maria Cristina explained on her Twitter page yesterday that she was not included in the recent trailer because she was not in the “right headspace” when it was filmed.

“I’m not present at the recent trailer posted as I was not in the right headspace during that time. The production considers the welfare of their artists more than anything. I am in [a] better mental stage now [and I] promise everyone to give you a good show as we air,” she said.
