With eight regular season (and a ninth on the way), two All Stars seasons, and an Emmy win, RuPaul‘s Drag Race has officially solidified its place in herstory as one of the greatest LGBTQ phenomenons of the 21st century.
Over the past nine years, the show has re-introduced the world to the art of drag, and brought more than 100 queens into the homes of millions.
With the huge success of its second All Stars season, which aired its final episode this past October, fans are already anticipating the third installment. After all, the All Stars 2 didn’t get to feature any season eight queens, and stand-outs like Trixie Mattel, Milk, Laganja Estranja and Courtney Act were left out. Heck, All Stars 3 could happen next year and have a seriously great cast!
While you wait (im)patiently for the announcement of All Stars 3, and to show the producers that we need it to happen, we’ve put together this fun poll to find out which queens fans want to see cast on the next season.
A few notes for those wondering why some queens are included or missing from the list:
- We decided to include all of the previous regular season winners because we’d love to see them compete again, and early-season winners definitely deserve a second chance to show their talents.
- We also included all of the contestants from All Stars 1, except the winner, because that season was too short and some queens got shafted by the double-elimination format (*cough* Pandora *cough*).
- The only All Stars 2 queen we listed was Adore. This was a tough decision, but RuPaul seemed open to having her back for All Stars 3, so we decided to include her.
- We realize that some of these queens, even if they were offered to come back, would not accept an invitation to compete on All Stars 3. We have included them to avoid comments like, “Oooh, ya’ll bein’ shady by leaving her off of the list.”
Lastly, before you vote, remember RuPaul’s quote: “Everybody say love.” Yes, there is a down-vote button. No, we can’t turn it off. Don’t abuse it just because you have a personal beef against one of these queens. Using the up-vote button is a lot more classy.
Gentlemen, start your engines. And may the best woman win!
