Atlanta and Savannah native, Dax Exclamationpoint, will be on the eighth season of the reality drag competition, RuPaul's Drag Race. After a very long and painful wait, LogoTV finally made the big #Ruveal regarding the new season during the NewNowNext Awards. The fabulous Nancy Drews over at Reddit clocked our queen early using audio clues posted to the show's Dubsmash account. Dax's clue was easy to pinpoint—"What's up nerds? I'm a cosplayer and my look is very inspired by science-fiction and comics."
Here's a look at the new contestants, featuring standouts like Kim Chi from Chicago and Bob the Drag Queen, originally from Columbus, GA.
You might remember Dax shaking up the Atlanta drag scene and giving birth to drag daughter and winner of RuPaul's Drag Race season seven, Violet Chachki. Dax soon moved to Savannah where she performs with the local alternaqueens, the House of Gunt. Last September, she twirled on stage in Atlanta with Violet Chachki and the rest of the Legendary Children for Nuclear Meltdown at The Heretic.
RuPaul's Drag Race season 8 premieres March 7th on LogoTV.
