The stars are jumping from the judges’ panel to the main stage!
RuPaul announced today at Vanity Fair’s New Establishment Summit that a new Drag Race spin-off was about to sashay onto our TV screens: RuPaul’s Celebrity Drag Race. The four-episode event series will feature 12 sickening stars as they compete for the first-ever title of “America’s Next Celebrity Drag Superstar.”
In each episode three different celebs will undergo a complete drag transformation with help from some of the most iconic queens from the Emmy-winning flagship series, including Alyssa Edwards, Asia O’Hara, Bob the Drag Queen, Kim Chi, Monét X Change, Monique Heart, Nina West, Trinity the Tuck, Trixie Mattel, and Vanessa Vanjie Mateo.
“Doing drag does not change who you are, it reveals who you are,” said RuPaul. “I can’t wait for the world to see what happens when our celebrity contestants get all up in drags!”
The contestants will not only compete for the title and bragging rights, but they will also win prize money for the charity of their choice.
RuPaul’s Celebrity Drag Race will premiere next year on VH1. The famous faces have not been announced, but which celebrities do you want to see battle it out on the runway?
