As much as I love Mama Ru, I don't always agree with her calls on who gets to shantay and stay, and who has to sashay away. That is exactly why RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars is one of my all-time favorite spinoff shows. It's a chance for some fan faves and RuPaul's other legendary children to redeem themselves, step up on the main stage for the second or even third time, and get another chance at claiming the crown. And it's a lot more exciting, because after being on the show the first time, these queens know what to expect and are ready to serve us gag-worthy looks and performances.
If it's anything like previous seasons, All Stars 6 is going to be epic. There's definitely going to be high fashion, stunning makeup, performances that'll bring the house down boots, and of course, there's bound to be some sort of drama. Here's everything we know so far:
When's the premiere?
There isn't an official premiere date just yet for All Stars 6, but the show was confirmed along with RuPaul's Drag Race Season 13 and Untucked last summer. And even before the announcement was made, Jaremi Carey—who used to perform as drag queen Phi Phi O'Hara—tweeted that he already knew the season 6 cast, and claimed that filming was already starting mid-August.
At this point, filming might already be done. So I wouldn't be surprised if promos and teasers started coming out tomorrow, knowing how this stuff usually works.
Who's on the judge's panel?
Well obviously it's her show, so the legendary mother herself RuPaul Charles is most definitely going to be there. It's safe to say that her right-hand woman Michelle Visage will also be present, as always. Comedian Ross Matthews and Queer Eye's Carson Kressley are also bound to be regulars on the show. And, of course, there will be extra-special guest judges to critique the queens and help Ru make her decisions.
What's up for grabs?
Aside from the crown and a coveted spot in the Drag Race Hall of Fame, the winning queen will also get $100,000 and a year's supply of makeup. Mama Ru's also been throwing in a lot of extra cash tips lately for the overall best performer every week, or for those that emerge victorious from lip syncs. It also depends on what kind of twist she decides to pull, and we know Ru loves to stir the pot.
Who's in the cast?
Fans already have a lot of guesses, and there have also been a lot of rumors. But there hasn't been any sort of official announcement saying which of our faves are going to get another shot at the crown.
