If you're not familiar with Trixie Mattel and Kayta Zamolodchikova, here's a little background: Trixie and Kayta finished sixth and fifth respectively in season seven of RuPaul's Drag Race. Katya then went on to become runner-up in RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars season two, while Trixie is due to appear in the third season next year. When they haven’t been lip syncing for their lives, they’ve been hosting YouTube series UNHhhh. But if you clicked on this story, you probably know all that.
Which brings us to The Trixie & Katya Show, which is basically a super-sized version of UNHhhh. With a bigger budget for graphics and cutaways. And fun segments like “Male Bag”, in which they field questions sent to them, and “Whore Drawer”, where they play that classic parlour game, Sex Toy or Household Item?
There’s also time for some vox pops courtesy of Brian and Brian, who hit the pavement in “Men on the Street” and quiz random passers-by (including a son and his mum) about sex terminology. Note: this is not something you want to watch, let alone be quizzed about, with your mother.
Otherwise, it’s business as usual as the queens give their hot takes on hot topics. In the first episode, it’s all about hooking up. So expect a lot of NSFW banter about online dating, f***ing in drag and d*** pics.
And with 68 episodes of their YouTube series behind them, that banter is tight – and lightning speed. Trixie and Katya leap from one one-liner to the next so fast it makes your head spin. Shantay, they can stay.
Watch The Trixie & Katya Show on Thursdays at 9:30pm on SBS VICELAND. You can also stream episodes at SBS On Demand:
