With less than a month until Mama Ru crowns the winner of Drag Race All Stars 3, it seems the perfect time to unveil the new queens who will compete for the crown on RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 10. The line up was announced on Thursday evening, and with the news that the new season will start on March 22, just one week after the All Stars 3 finale, there is still enough time to find out about the queens we will all be talking about.
The 13 new queens, and Eureka who as promised is returning following her medical retirement last year, are a cross-section of the drag world, and includes a queen who was only 11 when Season 1 aired!
So here are our new queens in the race to be crowned the next Drag Superstar:
Asia O’Hara (Dallas, TX)
Aquaria (Brooklyn, NY)
Blair St. Clair (Indianapolis, IN)
Dusty Ray Bottoms (New York, NY)
Eureka O’Hara (Johnson City, TN)
Kalorie Karbdashian-Williams (Albuquerque, NM)
Kameron Michaels (Nashville, TN)
Mayhem Miller (Riverside, CA)
Miz Cracker (New York, NY)
Monét X Change (Bronx, NY)
Monique Heart (Kansas City, MO)
The Vixen (Chicago, IL)
Vanessa Vanjie Mateo (Tampa, FL)
Yuhua Hamasaki (New York, NY)
This season also marks the first year that Untucked will air on VH-1 after each episode rather than only online, and as RuPaul said “And I’m thrilled that Untucked is back on VH1. ’Cause, henny, if you ain’t watching Untucked, you’re only getting half the story. Okurrr?”
Speaking of the new season Mama Ru teased what we can expect from the tenth season of the now Emmy winning show; “To celebrate a decade of Drag Race we’ve pulled out all the stops. The queens, the challenges, and the shenanigans are off the mother-tucking charts.” In season 10 all the episodes will be 90-minute long so with the addition of Untucked it means that Thursday night is well and truly sorted for entertainment
On the first look, it has to be said that it looks like we are in for an amazing season 10 and we can’t wait to share our thoughts with you.
RuPaul’s Drag Race returns to VH1 on March 22, and RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 3 is currently airing on Thursday at 8pm Eastern on VH1.
