NEW YORK, Nov. 14, 2011 -- RuPaul and Logo are prepping an all-new squad of 13 lucky contestants who will vie for the crown, an unprecedented $100,000 cash prize and the coveted title of "America's Next Drag Superstar."

With a devoted and diverse following ranging from soccer moms to Hollywood royalty, "RuPaul's Drag Race" has become appointment television for viewers who can't get enough of the outlandish fun, drama, "eleganza" and most of all, heart that comes with the show.

"We challenged ourselves to make TV's most outrageous show even more outrageous," said Executive Producer, RuPaul. "And I'm happy to report we've succeeded."

This season, a new crop of top-tier drag hopefuls are strapping on their helmets and revving their engines for the most competitive drag race and biggest grand prize yet.
