When the new season of RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars premieres next month, it won’t be on VH1. MTV and Paramount+ have “ru-vealed” that the reality series is moving to the ViacomCBS streamer formerly known as CBS All Access for its sixth round.
Last night’s Meet the Queens event was streamed live on the official RuPaul’s Drag Race YouTube channel, and gave us a peek at the 13 queens returning for another chance to snatch the crown. Among the returning queens are fan favorites Jiggly Caliente, Jan, Eureka! and Scarlet Envy. We’ve also got a few All Stars alums in the mix: Pandora Boxx, Yara Sofia and Ginger Minj will all try yet again to earn their place in the “Drag Race Hall of Fame”—and that $100,000 grand prize too.
The show featured clips of each contestant’s most memorable moments alongside commentary from the queens themselves on their Drag Race experience and how it has changed their lives.
“My drag has definitely evolved since Season 4,” said Jiggly Caliente. “I thought I was this pageant girl and didn’t even realize how funny I was until I saw the show.”
“I’ve always been a runner-up,” Eureka shared. “I feel like I’ve always been the bridesmaid. And I came back to All Stars 6 to finally get my mother f—king groom and be the bride! The rest of the girls can be the bridesmaids this wedding!” Sounds like fightin’ words!
The sixth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars will premiere with two episodes June 24 on Paramount+. And later this year, the platform will also host the latest addition to Drag Race producer World of Wonder’s drag empire: Queen of the Universe, a new international singing competition featuring queens from all over the world. The series, which was announced back in February, will premiere December 2.
