Any year in which we get two bites of the RuPaul’s Drag Race cherry is a damn good year, and just months after Bob The Drag Queen snatched the crown in Season 8, the show is officially returning for another round of All Stars!
The cast list for Drag Race All Stars 2 was announced overnight, and while it features only ten queens, it has pretty much everyone you could want – especially if you happen to be a fan of Season 5.
No fewer than five queens are returning from that year – the mighty Rolaskatox will rise again, with Roxxxy Andrews, Alaska and Detox all set to reunite, alongside rivals Coco Montrese and Alyssa Edwards.
The season of the fish smells like trout.
Season 6 runner-up Adore Delano is coming back, alongside Season 7 favourites Katya and Ginger Minj. Season 4’s Phi Phi O’Hara and Season 2’s Tatianna will also be vying for the title.
This cast list raises SO MANY LEGITIMATE AND DIFFICULT QUESTIONS. Are Alyssa and Coco still mortal enemies? Is the work room big enough to contain Phi Phi and Roxxxy’s egos? WHO DO WE EVEN ROOT FOR FROM THIS EXCELLENT BUNCH?
Notably absent are the likes of Willam, Courtney Act, BenDeLaCreme and Season 8’s Kim Chi, but it’s not like we’re complaining about this incredibly stacked cast.
The key to a swollen vagina is courage.
The show returns Thursday August 25 in the US. We are thinking about the thousands of GIF-worthy moments that Drag Race All Stars 2 will produce and we are
figuratively literally screaming.
