She’s back baby! ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race,’ AKA the fiercest drag show around, returns to Logo in March. Not only does the new season look insane, but a few guest judges have just been announced that make us think this might be the best season yet!
The realness Ru-turns! An extended trailer for the new season of RuPaul’s Drag Race has just been released, and it looks like there could be more tears and backstabbing than ever before. On top of that, Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato and a ton of other amazing divas have been announced as guest judges! Mar. 2 can’t come soon enough!
Ariana Grande On ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’
“You probably think you’ve seen it all,” RuPaul says as the music starts thumping in this trailer for the–if you can believe it– seventh season of RuPaul’s Drag Race.
“You probably know what to expect– no you don’t,” Ru clarifies, setting off a montage showing all this season’s drag queens.
That might be true, especially given the lineup of admittedly unpredictable personalities which are slated to guest judge this season. Along with Ariana and Demi, Jessica Alba, Kathy Griffin, Alyssa Milano, Jordin Sparks, Kat Dennings, Tamar Braxton, Isaac Mizrahi, Mel B will be amongst those who assume the judging panel.
Another exciting addition this season, Carson Kressley and Ross Mathews (neither of whom are strangers to reality television), will be on the judging panel permanently, accompanying judge Michelle Visage.
‘You’re Not Gonna Go There’
In addition to the exciting casting news, this trailer looks pretty bonkers, with one contestant constricting her waist so much that she needs an oxygen tank to breath, while another gives birth to a (fake) baby while strutting the runway.
“This is season seven of RuPaul’s Drag Race,” Ross says at one point. “If you’re not gonna go there now, you’re not gonna go there.”
He makes a solid argument!
Are you guys excited for the return of Drag Race? And who are you most excited to see as a guest judge?
