The Canada's Drag Race werkroom will get a special visitor in the upcoming series spin-off, Canada vs. the World.

On Tuesday it was revealed that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau pays a visit to the set during the competition to meet the queens and presumably share some sage words of wisdom.

He will be the first world leader to appear on a show within the Canada's Drag Race franchise — not in the Drag Race universe as a whole, though, as U.S. Reps. Nancy Pelosi and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have guest judged on the original United States series.

In the show's new trailer, contestants look utterly shocked by the surprise as a beaming Trudeau comes bouncing into the werkroom.

Canada vs. the World, modeled after early 2022's UK vs. the World, will star nine international queens, four of which are Canada's Drag Race alums, each representing their home country as they battle it out for the crown.

The season cast includes Anita Wigl'it (Down Under); Icesis Couture (Canada); Kendall Gender (Canada); Ra'Jah O'Hara (U.S.); Rita Baga (Canada); Silky Nutmeg Ganache (U.S.); Stephanie Prince (Canada); Vanity Milan (U.K.); and Victoria Scone (U.K.).
