Bam! RuPaul just confirmed the Drag Race All Stars 5 cast and it’s pretty sickening, no?
The Drag Race All Stars 5 cast will reenter the werk room in just a matter of days, boasting an impressive mix of fan favourites from early and more recent seasons.
RuPaul will welcome 10 queens back to the hallowed sugar walls of the werk room: Shea Coulée, Jujubee, Miz Cracker, Alexis Matteo, Blair St Clair, Mariah Balenciaga, India Ferrah, Derrick Barry, Mayhem Miller and Ongina.
The new season will feature “the biggest shake-up in herstory”, as All Stars rules are suspended “forever” in favour of a brand new format.
Each week the queens will compete in an iconic maxi challenge, with the winner then going head to head with a lip-sync assassin. If the All Stars 5 queen wins, she gets the power to eliminate and wins a $10,000 cash tip. Lose, and that power goes to the remaining queens, who will cast votes, and the tip will roll over.
VH1 will premiere the new season Friday (June 5), after network owners backtracked on a move to Showtime.
The decision was made not because of fan backlash, but due to the coronavirus pandemic which “resulted in various scheduling and programming adjustments”.
Here’s your first look at the All Stars 5 cast of queens. Bam!
