Twelve New Drag Divas Fight Tooth-and-Press-On-Nail to be Crowned "America's Next Drag Superstar"

Celebrity Guest Judges Include: Kathy Griffin, Cloris Leachman, Debbie Reynolds, Tatum O'Neal, Jackie Collins, Henry Rollins, Kathy Najimy and Terri Nunn

NEW YORK, Dec. 17 -- "Gentlemen, start your engines! May the best woman win!" After much critical acclaim and widespread popularity, Logo's hit reality competition series "RuPaul's Drag Race" has returned for a second season. This second lap of "RuPaul's Drag Race" will reflect the same hallmarks of the first season that made it a pop culture hit, including the now classic "lip synch for your life" segment. However, with a larger cast of competitors, mega-watt of celebrity guest judges and more extravagant weekly challenges, the second season of "RuPaul's Drag Race" will be the most tweeted about show of the season. The stakes, wigs and heels are higher than ever as RuPaul searches to crown one lucky up-and-coming drag queen the title (and tiara) of "America's Next Drag Superstar." "RuPaul's Drag Race" returns Monday, February 1, 2010 at 9:00 PM ET/PT.

"RuPaul's Drag Race" returns stronger than ever with a dream team of A-list celebrity and judges. Each week, joining RuPaul on the judges' panel includes the return of fashion journalist Merle Ginsberg and Project Runway breakout star Santino Rice. In addition, star-studded guest judges will grace the runway and decide which drag queen will need to "lip synch for their life" at the end of each weekly larger-than-life challenge. Guest judges and stars include: Kathy Griffin (comic/actress), Cloris Leachman (Academy Award winning actress), Debbie Reynolds (legendary actress), Jackie Collins (prolific novelist), Tatum O'Neal (Academy Award-winning actress), Kathy Najimy (actress), Henry Rollins (punk rock icon), Terri Nunn (singer of "Berlin"), Marissa Jaret Winokur (Tony Award-winning actress), Dita Von Teese (international burlesque star), Niecy Nash ("Reno 911!"), Martha Wash (Dance music hitmaker), Robert Verdi (Logo's "The Robert Verdi Show Starring Robert Verdi"), Kim Coles (comic/actress), Tanya Tucker (country music legend), Lisa Rinna (actress), Mathu Andersen (master image creator), Gigi Levangie Grazer (writer/creator of USA's "The Starter Wife"), Alec Mapa (comedian/actor), Phoebe Price, Marc Malkin (E! Television), Mike Ruiz (photographer), James St. James (pop culture personality) and Ryan Heffington (choreographer).

Eyeworks legendary designer eyewear campaign.

While "RuPaul's Drag Race" takes a look at the outrageous world of drag, it also reveals the courage, perseverance and humanity of 12 men who have overcome and endured the hardships of a masculine dominated society that mocks and makes fun of men who act like women. Not only do viewers get a bird's eye view of what it takes for these chameleons to transform themselves but were also able take away the secrets of the artistry of drag.
