You guys, this is not a drill. RuPaul‘s Drag Race just copped another spin-off, a CELEBRITY edition of Drag Race. For those playing at home, network VH1 recently just renewed Drag Race for a 12th season, All Stars for a fifth season, and we’re currently making our way through Drag Race UK.
Per reports, RuPaul’s Celebrity Drag Race season 1 (I’m just going to assume it’ll be renewed) will have four episodes. In each ep, three celebrities will get a complete drag transformation with the help of adored past queens of the show. VH1 hasn’t revealed the 12 celebrities just yet but we do know who the fan faves are.
Are you ready?
Alyssa Edwards, Trixie Mattel, Vanessa Vanjie Mateo, Asia O’Hara, Bob the Drag Queen, Kim Chi, Monet X Change, Monique Heart, Nina West, and Trinity the Tuck are all locked in.
I know Katya is not on that list but surely, surely she’s going to be on it.
Anywho, the celebs will compete for a title, with the prize money going to a charity of their choice.
“Doing drag does not change who you are, it reveals who you are,” RuPaul said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. “I can’t wait for the world to see what happens when our celebrity contestants get all up in drags!”
RuPaul’s Celebrity Drag Race will premiere in 2020.
The celebri-TEA has been spilled! ???? Alyssa, Asia, Bob, Kim, Monét, Monique, Nina, Trinity, Trixie, and Vanjie are about to give some celebs the #DragRace treatment in #CelebDragRace coming to @vh1 in 2020! ???????????? pic.twitter.com/bKphnaMmKl
