Drag Race Holland host Fred van Leer said: “I still can't believe I’ll host Drag Race Holland with the blessing of RuPaul! What a dream! This program is everything I believe in and stand for! It's all about charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent and I can’t wait to see all the fantastic creations of the queens on the runway, the lip syncs and all the challenges we created. A first message to our queens: You'd better work bitch! Good luck and don't fuck it up!”
