He explained in a statement released that he has never felt more qualified for a position before admitting that he never fails to attend a drag show in any town he visits. Actor Carson Kressley also joined Matthews as a judge that season.

The entertainment industry has been filled with lots of engagements in 2021. During Valentine’s Day weekend, socialite Paris Hilton and her venture capitalist boyfriend Carter Reum got engaged during a getaway for her 40th birthday.
