The Sonar Network proudly welcomes Semi-Qualified Queens

Press Release ·

Have you ever wondered whatever happens to Drag Queens after Reality TV?
They start a podcast, silly!

The Sonar Network, Canada’s award-winning independent podcast network, is thrilled to welcome the addition of Semi-Qualified Queens, a podcast by former Canada’s Drag Race contestants Juice Boxx and Synthia Kiss. The show launched as part of the Sonar Network on Tuesday, February 7.

While hosting a viewing party for a reunion episode of Drag Race, Juice and Synthia’s irresistible chemistry made it clear they were meant to become podcast co-hosts. On Semi-Qualified Queens, which first premiered in January 2022, Juice and Synthia recap episodes of Drag Race and welcome the most recently eliminated queens on the show to spill the tea and the trauma. The podcast showcases this charming duo’s scintillating wit as they battle their imposter syndrome and swap lascivious puns, to the delight of their devoted fan base, the SQQ cuties. Past notable guests on the podcast include Brooke Lynne Hytes, Brad Goreski, Cheryl Hole, Priyanka, Jimbo, and Kendall Gender.

Juice Boxx’s smart hosting style perfectly balances her fun and flirty performances, which serve a blend of Top 40s pop princess and enticing burlesque vixen. Juice began her career in the fast-paced drag scene of Toronto, where she excelled for years before being cast on the first season of Canada’s Drag Race. Along with the stage, Juice Boxx spends much of her time streaming on Twitch. She has collaborated with companies like Dead by Daylight, McDonald’s and It Gets Better for a variety of different online events. Although her status as “Canada’s Porkchop” (or first eliminated) on the show cut her time short, her cute and quirky personality won viewers over as she tripped, snagged, and fell her way to becoming a fan-favourite.

Synthia Kiss: A Drag Queen built like a 90’s supermodel, in equal parts fashion and funny. As a media darling, Synthia has worked with a variety of brands including Shoppers Drug Mart, Mountain Equipment Company, Our Place Cookware, Somersby Cider, and was the face of a Metro Vancouver recycling campaign in 2022. You might also recognize her as the loveable fan-favourite contestant of Canada’s Drag Race Season 2. Whether it’s singing, dancing, acting, crafting, podcasting, or crying on cue – this Queen does it all!
