The Drag Race family is getting even bigger. On Tuesday, RuPaul announced that a new spin-off series, RuPaul’s Celebrity Drag Race, will arrive sometime in 2020.
The new series will feature celebrity contestants getting into drag and competing. Offering hands-on coaching will be: Alyssa Edwards, Asia O’Hara, Bob the Drag Queen, Kim Chi, Monét X Change, Monique Heart, Nina West, Trinity the Tuck, Trixie Mattel, and Vanessa Vanjie Mateo.

“Doing drag does not change who you are, it reveals who you are,” RuPaul said in a press release. “I can’t wait for the world to see what happens when our celebrity contestants get all up in drags!”
Three celebs will battle it out in each episode for the title of America’s Next Celebrity Drag Superstar. The winner will receive prize money, donated to charity, of course.
The limited series — only four episodes are being produced — will run on VH1. No word yet on who the celebrity guests will be.
I love Drag Race, but my God, they are in overkill mode. Someone needs to show Ru the Simpsons “I didn’t do it” episode.
Make that money while you can, Momma Ru. She knows very well the tides could change at any moment and she’s here to get that coin **clack**
Ru is like a fat man at a gay beach…
