Black LGBTQ audiences may remember openly gay actor Kristen Griffith-VanderYacht from his time on the popular web series "Drama Queenz," but Griffith-Vander-Yacht is reaching a wider audience in 2020 as head judge on the new Netflix competition show "The Big Flower Fight."
The show "is an 8-part series hosted by comedians Vic Reeves and Natasia Demetriou that will see ten creative teams square off in a larger-than-life contest to create huge flower installations. Every episode will test a different set of skills and feature a unique challenge—the teams are tasked with building a larger-than-life sculpture, competing to design and build the biggest, most outlandish and beautiful works of art possible from flowers and other natural materials and staving off elimination for one more week."
Griffith-VanderYacht shared the news with supporters through a video posted on Facebook on Wednesday with his unique brand of humor.
Given the pandemic that the global community is currently living through, Griffith-VanderYacht addressed the filming of the show and the timing of his announcement:
"I filmed this in 2019. I in no way condone the actions of the disastrous year we call, "2020," he wrote.
Fellow actor Taylor DeMartino also posted his well wishes to Griffith-VanderYacht.
"The Big Flower Fight" debuts on Netflix on May 18.
