If you have been watching Untucked for this season’s RuPaul’s Drag Race, you’ll know the story so far about a budding romance between Brooke Lynn Heights and Vannessa Vanjie Mateo.
In last week’s episode, the pair shared a kiss but were coy in explaining the T when pressed by guest star judge Tiffany Pollard.
Yesterday Miss Vanjie posted a loved up selfie on Instagram with Brooke Lynn introducing her with the caption, “Everyone let me introduce you to my toes”. She also added a heart emoji.
The current season was filmed last year, so judging by this post it would seem that after getting to know each other on the show their relationship has continued to flourish.
Although there have been rumours of other queens hitting it off during filming in previous seasons, this is the first time in herstory a werkroom romance has been confirmed on screen.
Today RuPaul’s Drag Race released the preview for next week’s episode and when the other queens question them about their flirtatious exchanges, Vanjie says:
“Brooke Lynn’s a good friend of mine, a really good friend. It’s real fresh out the womb.
“You know, I’m going with the flow and if those kisses keep coming, I’m gonna keep accepting, if you know what I’m saying…”
In the confessional, Brooke admits that they have a crush on each other and that it’s really early days:
“We have a crush on each other. Me and Vanjie have a crush on each other and we’ll see where it goes,” before telling the other queens: “I think Vanjie’s really cute and we’re just getting to know each other.”
Fans have been reacting to the news with many hoping the pair don’t have to compete against eachother in a lip sync.
one fear is brooklyn and vanjie having to lip sync against each other
