Plot Synopsis

Following up on a 2019 special, "Drag Me Down the Aisle," DRAGNIFICENT! is a one-hour reality series that features some of America's most beloved drag queens -- makeup artist Alexis Michelle, event planner BeBe Zahara Benet, fashion expert Jujubee, and musician Thorgy Thor -- as they flip the switch and sprinkle their glitz on people who desperately wish for a mega- makeover as part of an upcoming life milestone. In each 60-minute episode, the cast help someone reimagine their appearance for a special day and reveal themselves as they have only dreamed, while taking viewers on a touching journey of their life and struggles to this point. Whether it be a bride who wants to feel beautiful walking down the aisle, an alumna who wants to strut her stuff at an upcoming high school reunion, or a woman coming to terms with her new body after losing a massive amount of weight, there is nothing our queens can't tackle. No matter how big the event or transformation, our fairy godmothers are just the team needed to give these people the confidence, courage and grace they need to be their best at the biggest moments of their lives. At the heart of DRAGNIFICENT! are makeovers that tug on the heartstrings, with a team of experts who tackle their challenges by drawing on their individual expertise and overall fabulousness:

Alexis Michelle, one of the top five contestants from Season 9 of RUPAUL'S DRAG RACE, is a Drag Superstar who always shines onstage. Using her gift of hair and make-up, Alexis has glammed up hundreds of brides for their big day and even been dubbed "brides best friend" by multiple mother of the brides! When she is not glamming up women or touring the world, Alexis stays busy with her solo shows at Broadway's living room, Feinstein's/54 Below, and Club Cumming. Alexis' social media following bolsters over 250k followers, but since her stint on Drag Race, that number is growing because she's constantly booked for shows and events across the country. Her followers come from far and wide to get a glimpse of her incredible makeup skills.

BeBe Zahara Benet, the original winner of RUPAUL'S DRAG RACE, is first in the long legacy of American Drag Royalty. BeBe has toured the world and conquered the pop charts with her dance hits but not only that, behind the wig, BeBe has been running an event planning business for the past two decades. As a professional event planner, BeBe has orchestrated and decorated hundreds of weddings bringing love and light to brides across the country. Inspired by the sophistication and class of Diana Ross, the edge and boldness of Grace Jones, the sass and fierceness of Beyonce and her own trademark "savage beauty," BeBe continues to model, act, perform and release hit music.

Thorgy Thor is a NYC-based drag performance artist, event host and professional musician. With a degree in Violin and Viola Performance from the Hart School of Music and Purchase Conservatory, Thorgy Thor has performed with over 6 major orchestras, gracing the stages of Town Hall NYC, Le Poisson Rouge, Lincoln Center & Carnegie Hall. As a true expert when it comes to performance and music, Thorgy has coordinated the music for thousands of weddings. Thorgy Thor was also a contestant on RUPAUL'S DRAG RACE Season 8 and on RUPAUL'S DRAG RACE ALL-STARS Season 3. Thorgy Thor's fans are dedicated with over 820K followers on social media.

Jujubee is the stage name of Airline Inthyrath, a professional drag performer, makeup artist, singer, and comedian from Boston, Massachusetts. Style and beauty have always played a major role in Jujubee's career. On top of working as a professional makeup artist for MAC cosmetics, Jujubee is one of America's most beloved fashion Drag Queens with a devoted Instagram following of over half a million. Best known for being a contestant on Season 2 of RUPAUL'S DRAG RACE, Season 1 of RUPAUL'S DRAG RACE ALL-STARS, and a regular guest artist on companion series RUPAUL'S DRAG U, Jujubee is a Queen that continues to inspire men and women alike with her sharp wit and killer looks.
On Monday, May 18, 2020 at 11pm ET/PT, TLC premiered "Mermaid Fantasy," the season finale of DRAGNIFICENT! With a birthmark covering half her body, Sarah thought she'd never be a bride. That changed when she met Nelson. Then, a surprise pregnancy led to a courthouse ceremony, and now she needs the Queens' help to fulfill her under-the-sea vow renewal dreams.
