RuPaul’s Drag Race
RuPaul’s Drag Racefan favorite Pandora Boxx jumped the gun and already announced that she’d be joining the cast of this October’s RuPaul’s All Stars Drag Race — and sadly Drag Race season 4 winner Sharon Needles told us why she pulled herself out of the show. And now, finally — gloriously, blessedly — Logo has revealed the rest of the 12-person cast.
The full cast for RuPaul’s All Stars Drag Race is as follows: Pandora Boxx, Chad Michaels, Yara Sofia, Jujubee, Nina Flowers, Mimi Imfurst, Manila Luzon, Shannel, Alexis Matteo, Tammie Brown, Raven, and Latrice Royale.
The show’s third season is the most-represented, with Yara, Mimi, Manila, and Alexis serving their wares. Season 1 and 2 produced three contestants each — Nina, Shannel, and Tammie for season 1, and Pandora, Jujubee, and Raven for season 2. Season 4 — the most recent season — sees just two of its contestants represented, in finalist Chad Michaels and third-runner-up and Miss Congeniality winner Latrice Royale.
RuPaul made the announcement in a fun, Wonder Woman-themed video posted on Logo’s website.
The big question in this announcement is: Where the hell is Shangela?! (Maybe two seasons are enough?) No, but really: What former Drag Race contestants do you feel got stiffed? Maybe first-ever cast-off Victoria “Porkchop” Parker?
