It has been confirmed that Canada's Drag Race star Miss Fiercalicious will be a contestant in the debut season of The Traitors Canada.

After the whirlwind success of the Claudia Winkleman-fronted British version, which inspired the American and Australian iterations of the show, the brutal game of deception is set to have a Canadian makeover.

On Monday (September 18), The Traitors Canada announced the cast of their first season and revealed that Miss Fiercalicious will be one of eight celebrities moving into the Traitors Manor alongside 12 regular players.

"Will the sabotee become the saboteur?" Miss Fiercalicious tweeted alongside her promotional shots for the season, referencing her most iconic argument on Canada's Drag Race.

Fiercalicious posted a second tweet to herald the cast announcement, asking: "Did somebody call for SABOTAGE?"

Miss Fiercalicious competed on the third season of Canada's Drag Race - a spinoff of RuPaul's Drag Race – and was a runner up alongside fellow competitor Kimmy Couture.

During her time on the show, Fiercalicious was a memorable contestant, winning two challenges and picking plenty of fights, one of which involved her naming a fellow contestant a 'saboteur', on her way to the finale.

The Traitors Canada will likely follow a similar format to the British version of the show where 20 players compete in a series of missions with the goal of building and winning the cash prize fund.

Of course, hidden amongst the Faithful contestants are the Traitors, who attempt to deceive, manipulate, and eliminate the Faithful to claim the prize for themselves instead of sharing it amongst the group.

Every night, the group will vote to banish a contestant in an effort to get rid of a Traitor, and when night comes, the Traitors will murder a second contestant to thin the crowd even further.

If, at the end of the season, a single Traitor remains amongst the final group of players, they will take the entire pot.

The Traitors Canada airs begins airing on CTV, Monday (October 2) at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

The Traitors UK aired on BBC One and is available on BBC iPlayer. The Traitors Australia is available on BBC iPlayer. The Traitors US is available to stream on BBC iPlayer in the UK and Peacock in the US.
