RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars is returning for its fifth season and once again we'll get to see 10 past queens return to the runway for a chance to claim their spot in the Drag Race Hall of Fame.
According to award-winning host and executive producer RuPaul, season 5 will be a bit different from past seasons as it will feature a new twist. In season 5, only the main challenge winner will lip sync for her legacy against a Lip Sync Assassin which will be a notable contestant from a previous season. If the All-Star wins the lip sync, she'll get the power to eliminate a fellow queen and win a $10,000 jackpot cash prize. However, if the Lip Sync Assassin wins, the eliminated queen will be determined after a vote by the rest of the contestants.
The ten queens competing in this season's competition are:
- Alexis Mateo (Season 3, All Stars 1)
- Blair St. Clair (Season 10)
- Derrick Barry (Season 8)
- India Ferrah (Season 3)
- Jujubee (Season 2, All Stars 1)
- Mariah Paris Balenciaga (Season 3)
- Mayhem Miller (Season 10)
- Miz Cracker (Season 10)
- Ongina (Season 1)
- Shea Couleé (Season 9)
The last queen standing at the end of RuPual's Drag Race All Stars season 5 will waltz away with the All Stars crown, a spot in the Drag Race Hall of Fame and a cash prize of $100,000.
