We’ve barely stopped gagging from watching Sasha Colby’s coronation at the culmination of season 15 of RuPaul’s Drag Race and now we’re being gifted with a dozen returning legends ready to lip sync for their legacy.

On Thursday, the cast of queens vying for the crown – and $200,000 – on RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 8 was announced and it’s safe to say the competition is fierce, henny!

From a season 2 OG to a fan favorite from north of the border, the Ru girlies are beat for the gawds and bringing it to the werk room starting May 12th on Paramount+.

    Cool! There are several of these queens (Alexis, Darienne, Heidi, Jimbo, Kahanna, Kasha) I’m looking forward to seeing again.

  • Hayden

    Manila Luzon should be there. She was absolutely robbed in all stars and should of won her season instead of Raja

    • ShiningSex

      She’s been back enough. I like her, but enough with the same ones over and over again.

  • Seth

    Thank you, Ru, for choosing the most mediocre, bottom-shelf cast and giving me a break from the Drag Race saturation. See you for season 16.

    • ShiningSex

      better than the same ones over and over again

    • reyesdelabiblioteca

      mediocre? you don’t even do drag

  • ShiningSex

    hate Darienne and Kandy

    • reyesdelabiblioteca

      You hate people you don’t know personally? quite path

    Refreshing to see so many faces of queens who had never gotten their 15 minutes of fame. Seeing queens go back more than twice is frustrating when there are sooooo many who were never really in the spotlight. Some of these queens have busted their tuck since their original season aired.

  • SoloMcDaniel

    Imagine if William, Pearl and Utica were the same season of All Stars? I’m sure Ru would allow Michelle to host that season.

  • Cozmo2

    I hate garbage pail kid Kandy


    they need to come up with another way to get someone in the HALL OF FAME. there are so many queens who deserve to be there more than anyone in this new cast. for instance, Manila Luzon, Raven, Alexis Mateo, Nina Flowers, Latrice Royale’ or Jujubee.

  • jackscott

    Really, they are calling this “All Stars”??!! Big pass on this group!

    • reyesdelabiblioteca

      Every drag queen absolutely deserves the chance to get a rudemption. You haven’t even watched the season
