A juicy trailer for Drag Race All Stars 6 has been released by streaming service Paramount+ giving us our first look at some of the in-person celebrity guests joining RuPaul on her infamous judging panel for the next All Stars.
Side note – we like that the colour scheme for all the promo has been red, orange and yellow, btw. What a lovely and gentle “fuck you” to Tina Burner, Ms Paul.
This season’s guest judges include Aisha Tyler, Big Freedia, Charli XCX, Emma Roberts, Jamal Sims, Justin Simien, Tia Mowry and fashion designer Zaldy. Oh, and Tina Knowles-Lawson (yes, the woman that birthed Beyonce) will be showing us who run the world, too.
But wait, there’s more. According to reports, Alec Mapa, Angela Bassett, Cheyenne Jackson, Fortune Feimster, Jermaine Fowler, Tanya Tucker and Miss Piggy will also make special guest appearances during All Stars 6. Shame Miss Piggy’s not a guest judge – we imagine she’s good at a grilling.
Second side note – can we take this opportunity to appreciate the zaddy that is Cheyenne Jackson, while we’re here?
As you probably already know, the following former Drag Race contestants are competing in All Stars 6: A’Keria C. Davenport, Eureka, Ginger Minj, Jan, Jiggy Caliente, Kylie Sonique Love, Pandora Boxx, Ra’Jah O’Hara, Scarlet Envy, Serena Cha Cha, Silky Nutmeg Ganache, Trinity K. Bonet and Yara Sofia.
As for logistics like when and how we’re going to get the series in the UK, we sadly can’t reveal. Just be thankful it’ll probably pop on Netflix one hungover morning this summer and you won’t have to pay for yet another streaming service like our friends in the US.
