VH1 announced the RuPaul’s Drag Race season 11 cast members today, inviting us to get to know the 15 queens who will battle for the title of “America’s Drag Superstar.” Oddly is among them and ready to bring her signature shock factor to the show.

“I love shock value and I find that the best way to shock people is by giving them something they haven’t seen before or something they haven’t seen from you before. So whatever I’m doing involves trying to be as dramatic as possible. I like to work with unconventional materials, basically anything I can find,” explained Oddly in an interview with 303. “I’m inspired by drama, by things that are over the top.”

The new season of RuPaul’s Drag Race premieres on VH1 on Thursday, March 22 at 7 p.m. PST.
