It seem like Bianca Del Rio was crowned America’s Next Drag Superstar just yesterday, but, with RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 7 just around the corner, it’s time again to start speculating who has been cast on the next season!
We believe, based on the social media disappearances dates of most of the speculated queens, that filming for RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 7 began on or around July 16th. The users of the RuPaul’s Drag Race sub-Reddit have been doing some extremely scientific research to determine the possible cast… aka stalking their social media accounts. Disappearance from social media on or around July 16th, with limited, irregular or no posts after this date, is the key speculation factor.
We will continue to update and change this article as updates and revelations occur, so for now take these speculations with a grain of salt and keep checking back for regular updates.

Miss Fame has typically been very active on her Instagram account, posting photos on an almost daily basis and sometimes multiple times a day. This month, however, Miss Fame has only posted seven photos on Instagram, which is a large decrease from her usual activity. She has shared one photo on her Instagram since July 16th, but it is believe that this photo is an old.
Additionally, her Twitter account has gone suspiciously silent. In previous months she was quite active with original tweets and retweets, but she has gone from almost daily Twitter updates, with multiple tweets every day, to only 9 tweets and retweets in July. Her last tweet went out on July 20/21 (West cost/East coast) but it was a very simple tweet and wasn’t accompanied by an Instagram photo (as most of her previous tweets have been).
Hometown: San Juan, Puerto Rico
Kandy’s Facebook and Instagram accounts have gone mysteriously quiet. Her last Facebook post was on July 10 and her last Instagram photo was shared on July 6. This infrequency is highly abnormal compared to her usual activity level.
Hometown: Atlanta, Georgia
Violet disappeared from social media on July 16 when she posted on Facebook that she was in Quito, Equador due to a family emergency. She said, “limited access. please keep my family in your thoughts. miss you guys” and hasn’t updated since. Since then, her Instagram and Twitter have also been silent.
Hometown: New York City
Reddit users have caught on to the fact that the weekly show Asia has been hosting at the FairyTail Lounge since March has been taken over by Terra Grenade as of the July 20th show. Additionally, her drag mother Digna Shei posted on Instagram that she was going to be leaving… Conveniently, she also threw in “Please bring mama the crown” at the end and the hashtag #DragRace.
Hometown: Akron, Ohio
It seems that Discord’s social media accounts have also gone silent, with her last Facebook post going out on July 8 and last tweet on July 15. This lack of social sharing is extremely suspicious compared to her past update frequency.
Hometown: Cocoa, Florida.
Ginger has a good excuse for her absence according to her last Facebook post. Apparently she has a staph infection known as MRSA and will be “on lockdown for awhile so they can do some hardcore antibiotics.” Maybe her story will hold true, but for now it seems to be very suspicious. That Facebook post did come on July 17th one day after the believed day that filming begun (July 16th), so it is quite possibly a true story. If so, we wish her all the best of luck in treating the issue.
Update (Aug. 2): Ginger recently updated her Facebook account, which could mean 1) she got eliminated early, 2) her story is true or 3) she has had somebody else update her account. Only time will tell…
Jaidynn Diore Fierce
Hometown: Nashville, Tennessee
Jaidynn isn’t very active on social media, but it seems that she has been MIA for a few weeks from her regular show in Nashville at Play Dance Bar. Seeing as she usually performs there three times per week, her disappearance seems highly unusual.
Hometown: Denver, Colorado
If you watched RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 5 then Kahanna’s last name should sound familiar. It seems that CoCo Montrese’s drag daughter, who looks a lot like her mama, hasn’t updated her Facebook page for a while (which is set to private) and her friends are sharing their concerns about her disappearance on her wall.
While there’s no way for us to officially confirm this, Reddit user ExperienceTheDivine, who is Facebook friends with her, has confirmed her disappearance.
Update (Aug. 1): Kahanna has returned to posting on Facebook which we take to mean as either 1) she got eliminated early from the show or 2) she just decided to disappear for a while without telling anybody where she was going. Only time will tell…
Hometown: Minneapolis, Minnesota
Yet another queen to have gone suspiciously quite on her social media accounts is Max Malanaphy. Her last update on Facebook was on July 13 (in which she accepted friend requests from 10 people), her last tweet was June 26th and her last Instagram post was on June 19th. These dates are all random, so it’s hard to be completely be sure that her disappearance has to do with RuPaul’s Drag Race, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
Hometown: Brooklyn, New York
Pearl hasn’t updated her social media accounts since early July, but it seems that her friends are trying to keep rumors of her being on the show to a minimum by posting and tagging photos of her on Facebook. While it doesn’t seem unusual for people to do this sort of thing, what makes it suspicious is the fact that the photos she is being tagged in seem to be photos of old looks that she had already shared on her Instagram.
Hometown: Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Trixie has been MIA on social media for a while, even to the point that people are posting on Facebook to ask if anybody has seen her. She has even disappeared from her boy Facebook, as of July 12th, which she previously updated on a regular basis.
Note: One queen that we’ve left out of our list, which Reddit users believe might be on, is Nirvana Piranha. Although she has been missing from Twitter and Instagram since July 16th, her Facebook ‘Recent Activity’ has been continually active, with her last activity showing up on July 22.
