Robert Irwin almost says the F-word on Stan’s RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under

Wholesome king Robert Irwin comes perilously close to saying the F-word as he makes a cameo appearance on RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under

The famously wholesome Irwin siblings almost veered into R-rated territory during their guest appearance on RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under this week.

Robert and Bindi were tasked with introducing a challenge in the first episode, and managed to keep things clean despite the Stan show’s bawdy reputation.

The wildlife warriors and Drag Race superfans instructed the Aussie and Kiwi queens to make catwalk outfits that ‘celebrate the natural beauty of our homelands’.

They explained the task in a video recorded at Australia Zoo, and in classic Irwin style had a huge Burmese python resting on their shoulders.

At the end of the segment, it was Robert’s turn to say host RuPaul Charles’ iconic catchphrase: ‘Good luck… and don’t f**k it up.’

RuPaul usually says this before the start of each runway challenge, but sometimes celebrity guests are allowed to do the honours instead.

‘Robert, before we get constricted, is there anything else you’d like to say?’ Bindi smiled.

‘Good luck, and don’t…’ he began, leaving a long pause as the drag queens looked nervously around the work room.

He then shook his head and said: ‘Nah, I can’t say it!’

The Irwins are known for their family-friendly public image, and using the F-word would be rather off-brand for them.

But it seems Robert, 18, and Bindi, 24, aren’t afraid to make fun of their wholesome reputation from time to time.

The Irwin family became world-famous thanks to the conservation efforts of late patriarch Steve ‘The Crocodile Hunter’ Irwin.

Steve died on September 4, 2006, at the age of 44 after being pierced in the chest by a stingray while filming a documentary on the Great Barrier Reef.

Following his death, Steve’s family, including his children, widow Terri, and son-in-law Chandler Powell, have continued his legacy at Australia Zoo in Queensland.
