Drag Queen extraordinaire RuPaul is about to launch her tenth season of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” on March 22. The show has expanded from an hour long show to one of 90 minutes and the popular “Untucked” is returning for season 10.
“Untucked” is a 30 minute episode allowing the queens to “dish” on each other and express their thoughts and feelings on the episode.
With only two more weeks remaining in season three of Drag Race All Stars, RuPaul is busy gearing up for a new season of Drag and an All Star list of guest judges.
Season 10 will begin with award winning pop star Christina Aguilera as a guest judge. Also on tap to share the judge’s table with RuPaul are Country music star Shania Twain, Courtney Love, Halsey, Abbi Jacobson, Ilana Glazer, Kate Upton, Bily Eichner, Audra McDonald, Andrew Rannells, Ashanti, Lizzo, Lena Dunham, Kumail Nanjiani, Emily V. Gordon, Padma Lakshmi, Nico Tortorella, Miles Heizer, Logan Browning, Carrie Preston, Ticha Campbell-Martin, and Todrick Hall is returning to Drag Race. Late night talk show host Stephen Colbert, Andy Cohen, and Cheyenne Jackson will also be making some guest appearances.
Season 10 of Drag Race will begin with 14 queens competing for the title of America’s Next Drag Superstar.
The queens of season 10 “RuPaul’s Drag Race”:
Aquaria has graced the pages of “Vogue Italia” and is the drag daughter of season four Drag Race winner Sharon Needles.
Former Miss Gay America Asia T. O’Hara calls Dallas home and has a costuming business where she designs costumes for ice skaters and colour guard teams.
Indianapolis’ Blair St. Clair has dreams of hitting the Broadway stage.
Dusty Ray Bottoms defies being placed into any one category and describers herself as “dark, glamorous and trashy”.
After having to leave the show early with a knee injury, Eureka O’Hara returns to Drag Race and compete for the title.
Twerking queen Kalorie Karbdashian-Williams may enter the room with a giggle, but she will have the attention of the room when she sashays out of it.
If Mattel created a gym rat Barbie, it would be Kameron Michaels. This queen is out to prove that body building can be beautiful.
California girl Mayhem Miller is filled with polish and sass.
Miz Cracker is the drag daughter of Drag Race winner Bob The Drag Queen and has marched with Bob in the March for Equality in New York City’s Times Square.
Bronx native Monet X Change has a degree in Opera Performance and will have no trouble with any singing challenge during the season.
Monique Heart may be a devoted Christian, but she won’t let it stop her from “making an entrance” or shining on the runway when it comes time to perform.
The South Side of Chicago may be known for “Bad Bad Leroy Brown” but it also has The Vixen who uses politics and protest as a part of her act.
The Sunshine State of Florida brought Alexis Mateo to Drag Race and now it brings her drag daughter Vanessa Vanjie Mateo to the show as a part of season 10.
Chinese born queen Yuhua Hamesaki now calls New York City home and is the first queen on Drag Race to hail from China. A seamstress by day, Yuhua will have no problem when it comes to the creative wardrobe challenges.
