“R U ready for the most star-studded competition in HERstory?”
Is there such a thing as too much Drag Race? Like Michelle Visage once said, “NO!” Today, VH1 unveiled the first sickening trailer for RuPaul’s Secret Celebrity Drag Race and revealed when it will sashay onto our screens. We’re being fed!
The four-part event will debut 24 April after the main show and will follow 12 celebrity contestants as they vie for the title of America’s Next Celebrity Drag Superstar, as well as a cash prize, which will be donated to the charity of their choice.
The celebs will be aided by legendary former contestants such as: 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.
“RuPaul’s Secret Celebrity Drag Race is a blast,” Mama Ru said in a statement. “We put these celebrities through it! Because no matter how famous your charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent is, you still put your pantyhose on one leg at a time.”
The trailer shows queens such as Alyssa, Asia, Bob, Monet, Trinity and Trixie looking gagged to the high heavens as the celebrity contestants prance down the runway. Of course, their identities have remained anonymous.
