Brooke Lynn Hytes

Resident Judge, Canada's Drag Race

Never fear, the Queen of the North is here! Equal parts ballerina, showgirl, and 90s supermodel, Brooke Lynn Hytes is drag perfection personified. After training at the National Ballet School of Canada, this extraordinarily talented queen danced her way into hearts across the world in 2008 as a principal ballerina with “Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo,” an all-male drag ballet company. Driven by that experience, and her passion for dance, beauty and the stage, she honed her skills, winning multiple Canadian pageants, before turning her eye toward the U.S., and competing for the coveted Miss Continental Crown, a title she snatched in 2014. In 2015, Brooke Lynn accepted a prestigious position as one of the “Playmates” at Play Dance Bar in Nashville. Determined to show the world what Canadian drag had to offer, she competed in Season 11 of RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE, placing second, and becoming a fan favourite and hero to the Great White North.

Speaking on: Master Class: Canada's Drag Race

At the Banff Media Festival, we met with Netflix and took a ride up Sulphur Mountain on the gondola. That’s where we made the pitch.
