Filipino drag performer Maxie Andreison has been confirmed as one of the contestants in the second season of the US-based drag singing contest “Queen of the Universe” which is set to air in March 2023.

Andreison is the only Filipino and Asian drag performer among the show’s 10 contestants, which was announced by “Queen of the Universe” on their official social media platforms early Thursday morning, Feb. 23 (Philippine Standard Time).


“@maxieandreison #QueenOfTheUniverse,” its tweet read, along with a Philippine flag emoji. The drag performer was donning a glamorous all-blue outfit while holding a microphone on one hand.


The Filipino queen also unveiled a glimpse of her playful personality in a short video teaser, where she showed a sample of her pasarela or pageant walk and made a series of funny expressions in front of the camera.

Andreison also took to her personal Instagram page to express his excitement about being included in the show’s lineup of contestants.

“I have always dreamt of performing [on] an international stage and I can’t believe it’s finally happening!!! I have been waiting for this all my life. Thank you for all the love and support! We will fight and we will get that crown,” she said.
