RU Ready?! A super special new series RuPaul’s Secret Celebrity Drag Race has just been announced and will premiere 25 April on Stan.
An expansion of the Emmy award-winning franchise, RuPaul’s Drag Race, fans must tune-in to the new four-part event series to find out which film, music, television, and comedy stars will be featured in the competition.
Each week, a trio of celebrities open up their heart and mind to the transformative power of drag, embracing the inner fierce queen inside of them. They all step onto the runway feeling beautiful, powerful and inspired in their own way, realising that drag doesn’t change who they are, but reveals who they are.
With the help of beloved “Queen Supremes” 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, the celebrities undergo a drag transformation and compete in fan-favourite challenges to win prize money for the charity of their choice. At the end of every episode, RuPaul will crown “America’s Next Celebrity Drag Race Superstar.”
“RuPaul’s Secret Celebrity Drag Race is a blast,” said four-time Emmy Award-winning host and Executive Producer RuPaul. “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.”
Season 12 of RuPaul’s Drag Race currently airs every Saturday on Stan followed by RuPaul’s Drag Race: Untucked. This week, the remaining queens get into the groove in a Queen of Pop inspired musical. Guest judges are U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and supermodel Winnie Harlow.
