Drag Race Canada features its first THICC Pit Crew Member ever!

Fans of Drag Race were left gagging this past Friday when Canada’s Drag Race presented us with a little bit of THICCness in the Pit Crew!

It happened during Drag Race Canada’s 4th episode, featuring Biddell as a guest host. The Pit Crew member stepped out in his underwear for the mini-challenge, and the Bear/Cub community was pleasantly surprised to see a pleasantly plump pit crew body for the first time in Drag Race history!

Most of the Pit Crew members are usually very slender and/or muscular guys. For years, many Drag Race fans have been calling for more body diversity in the Pit Crew — because, of course, fat bodies are sexy too! But also… Who is the model?

The model in question is 25-year-old Egytian model Mina Gerges! He first rose to prominence back in 2015 while studying at a university in Canada. His recreation of celebrity red carpet looks, including looks worn by Beyoncé, Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry, made him a viral sensation. He’s an actor, model, and a huge figure in the body positive movement who splits his time between Toronto and New York City.
