Christmas comes early with special ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ announcement

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

OK, it might be a little early for eggnog and mistletoe, but World of Wonder and VH1 already have a gift picked out for you: RuPaul’s Drag Race will air a one-hour “Holi-slay Spectacular”.

The special episode will feature familiar faces like Eureka O’Hara, Jasmine Masters, Kim Chi, Latrice Royale, Mayhem Miller, Shangela, Sonique, and Trixie Mattel as they compete for the title of America’s first “Drag Race Xmas Queen.”

VH1 promises “jaw-dropping surprises, eye-popping fashions, and epic performances,” and we expect no less.

“Nothing says Christmas like ‘Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, and drag queens slipping on their pantyhose,” said three-time Emmy Award-winning host RuPaul.

And for some more seasonal cheer — both season 11 of RuPaul’s Drag Race and season 4 of All Stars are also on their way, so get ready for gaggery at every turn.

RuPaul’s Drag Race Holi-slay Spectacular premieres Friday, Dec. 7 at 8:00 p.m. ET on VH1.
