For avid followers of drag queen circles, and those who have an interest in drag races, 2019 has got off to a good start. The long-running and famous show, ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’, has only recently started airing Season 11, and the show has already been renewed by VH1.
Meanwhile, its sister show, ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars’ has just finished airing its fourth season, and fans are already wondering whether it will be renewed for a fifth run. ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars’ Season 1, consisting of six episodes, first aired on October 22, 2012. After a four year lull, the competition format reality television show returned with Season 2 on August 25, 2016. The gap between Seasons 2 and 3 was shorter, and Season 3 first aired on January 25, 2018. Less than a year later, Season 4 aired on December 14, 2018, concluding recently on February 15, 2019.
As the name of the show suggests, ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars’ is a spin-off of the original show, which is currently in its eleventh season. While the original show focuses on fresh participants, ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ brings former participants in the show back into the fray. The contestants compete for a place in the coveted Drag Race Hall of Fame.
RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars Cast: Who is in it?
In Season 4, ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars’ saw 10 contestants – Monet X Change, Trinity the Tuck, Monique Heart, Naomi Smalls, Latrice Royale, Manila Luzon, Valentina, Gia Gunn, Farrah Moan, and Jasmine Masters – fight for a spot in the Drag Race Hall of Fame. As of now, we have no idea about the cast of Season 5, or whether there is going to be a Season 5 at all. We will update this section when relevant information emerges.
RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars Plot: What is it about?
World of Wonder’s renowned drag race show ‘RuPaul’s All Stars’ is very similar to the main ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ show in its formula, except that the all stars show is the higher tier, i.e. its contestant pool is drawn from the award winners and prominent stars who have earlier appeared on the main show.
Being a higher tier, ‘RuPaul’s All Stars’ gives each season’s winner a place in the Drag Race Hall of Fame – possibly the highest honor an American drag queen can earn. Yet, that’s not all, the show also gives winners a massive cash prize of $100,000, which is often accompanied with bonuses like a year-long supply of Anastasia Beverly Hills cosmetics.
