Carson is one of the key judges for VH-1’s Emmy award-winning series RuPaul’s Drag Race. He has also competed on several shows, including Celebrity Apprentice, Worst Cooks of America, and Celebrity Family Feud to raise money and awareness to important charities such as Project Angel Food and the True Colors Fund. In addition, Carson is a New York Times best-selling author with three books to his credit, including his latest Does This Book Make My Butt Look Big? A Cheeky Guide to Feeling Sexier in Your Own Skin & Unleashing Your Personal Style.
On hand to present some of the Global TV Demand Award trophies will be Emily Swallow, who plays The Armorer in Disney+’s mega hit original series The Mandalorian, which is among the top shows in the Most In-Demand Series Debut category. Also presenting will be Martin Kove, who is known for portraying the iconic villain John Kreese in the Karate Kid film series and in the YouTube original revival series Cobra Kai, and Hailie Sahar, who stars as Lulu Abundance, co-founder of the House of Ferocity, in FX’s hit series Pose.
