“I’m here in season 2 to bring a little bit of sweetness and a little bit of bitchiness and a little bit of personality. And when I say a little bit, I said a lot,” Prince said during her “Meet The Queens” interview. 

“If you are ever doubting yourself and you want a brutally honest answer you come to me. That’s when I tell you, you look bad, and that’s when I tell you, this is what you need to fix. And you’re gonna thank me later,” Prince added. 

The drag queen said she will be showcasing her culture in the competition in the hopes of bringing home the crown. 

“I’m here to represent my culture which are Filipinos, and my Asian sisters and my ladyboys who are watching me doing, aow!” she added.

Kyne from Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario was the first Filipino drag queen to compete in “Canada’s Drag Race” placing 11th overall in its debut season.
