If you're looking for some masculine, oiled-up eye candy, look no further than RuPaul's Drag Race's Pit Crew. Acting as a gender-swapped version of the beautiful, silent gameshow models of the past (e.g. Deal or No Deal), the always-half-naked Pit Crew assists RuPaul during both Mini and Maxi Challenges (all while the queens ogle over its chiseled members).

Whether they're rolling over a cart of unconventional materials for a design challenge, acting alongside the queens, or playing Snatch Game, the Pit Crew members are an integral part of the Emmy-winning reality competition show.

And while we typically "meet the queens," it's finally time that we meet the enigmatic Pit Crew. We can practically hear RuPaul summoning them in his singsongy voice.

Bryce Eilenberg

Not only is Bryce Eilenberg the hunkiest ginger we've ever seen, but he's a smartypants, too. Aside from his gig as a Pit Crew member, Bryce is an aerospace engineer and a Red Hot 100 model.

"I'm actually an aerospace engineer for my day job. And I show up to RuPaul's Drag Race from time to time when they want people to stand around in underwear, and they want a redhead to stand around in underwear," the UCLA grad said in a 2021 YouTube video. He was inspired to become an aerospace engineer after seeing Top Gun as a child.

Bryce has been a member of the Pit Crew since Season 7 of RuPaul's Drag Race.
