IC drag aficionados, start your engines: Iowa City drag queen Sasha Belle will be featured in season seven of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Belle auditioned for the reality show five times before finally getting a shot, according to the show’s Meet the Queens promotional video.

Premiering Jan. 15 on Logo TV, season seven of RuPaul’s Drag Race will feature 14 drag queens from across the United States, all competing for the title of “America’s Next Drag Superstar.” Those familiar with America’s Next Top Model will recognize the formula of the show; each episode features a mini challenge and a runway challenge followed by judging where one contestant gets eliminated.

Belle grew up in Iowa, and currently lives in the Iowa City area, where she works as Studio 13’s show director. Belle, whose real name is Jared, has been performing under the Sasha Belle persona since 2006.
