Drag queens are finally getting some respect. And the chance at more money than they’d make in years collecting dollars at gay bars.
Tonight when RuPaul’s Drag Race returns for a much-deserved sixth season, the prize is the biggest ever—$100,000. (That’s a lot of fake clams.)
Each season the competitors get more and more talented and exponentially more competition-savvy, which makes for incredibly dramatic TV. This season’s batch is no exception and we’ve already got our favorites. particularly Milk and BenDeLaCreme.
Joining RuPaul at the judges’ table this time around are guests with huge star power, including Adam Lambert, Neil Patrick Harris, Paula Abdul and Bob Mackie. The one we’re most excited to see judge, however, is Linda Blair.
Here’s hoping for an Exorcist-themed challenge involving plenty of pea soup and inappropriately placed crucifixes.
