Drag Race France's Nicky Doll has teased an upcoming twist, in a first for RuPaul's Drag Race.
"I can tell you one thing that I shouldn't even tell you. The winner is on the promo picture," the queen joked to Digital Spy in an exclusive chat.
She then added: "There will be a twist that I don't think we've seen before on the show, in an episode like this. Which is going to make things really exciting, to see who is going to go through that twist."
Talking about her experience on the other side, the queen opened up on the emotional side attached to her new role, saying it has been "hard" for her to eliminate the contestants.
"And then on a more personal level, I didn't realise how hard it would be to eliminate the queens, because I was really able to project myself into their shoes," Nicky said.
"What you're doing is, you are receiving someone's heart and passion, and you have to make a decision. It's ultimately going to crush someone's dream. And I've been there in the first place," she continued, referring to her elimination in 2020.
"So I was trying to do it, and make sure that before the queen leaves the stage, most of the trauma of this experience would be erased, to really give that personal message that I think everyone should hear when they get eliminated."
"Because when you are so stressed in a situation like this, no question should be left unanswered, because your mind just goes and answers them for you, and your mind is a twisted f**k. It will always answer to you in the worst way possible."
