"RuPaul's Drag U" is Back on Logo This Summer With a Makeover of Its Own

RuPaul and His Drag Faculty Return to Help Unleash the Inner Diva Inside Every Woman

New Season Premieres Monday, June 18 at 9PM ET/PT on Logo

NEW YORK, May 14, 2012 -- Television's most fabulous makeover show is back...and totally revamped! The third season of "RuPaul's Drag U" delivers more diva transformations, more drag queens and more surprises as biological women are treated not only to show-stopping makeovers, but also receive once-in-a-lifetime, real-world hair, makeup and fashion tips from the world's greatest drag faculty. This season continues to deliver fan favorite drag queens, more iconic celebrity judges and life-changing stories as eight new, one-hour episodes premiere on Monday, June 18 at 9PM ET/PT on Logo.

In each episode, the drag professors help women create a show-stopping look for their lip-sync stage performance, while RuPaul coaches the women in 'everyday fabulous' by offering them new styles and tips that they can bring home with them after "Drag U." Some everyday tips include finding the perfect "little black dress," using the right makeup brushes and mastering form-fitting outfits.

Commenting on the new season, RuPaul said, "If behind every great, glamorous woman there's a gay man, then the contestants on 'RuPaul's Drag U' have hit the jackpot." He continued, "It's a truly life-changing experience for these lovely ladies to learn beauty secrets from the most talented and fashionable drag queens in the world."

Join RuPaul for a season of inspirational stories as women regain their self-esteem and develop the self-acceptance they need to jump to the head of the class. The season three faculty includes: Latrice Royale, JuJubee, Manila Luzon, Raja, Raven, Shannel, Alexis Mateo, Mariah, Chad Michaels, Willam, Morgan McMichaels, Pandora Boxx, Delta Work and Sharon Needles. And, of course, Lady Bunny returns as the "Dean of Drag" to dispense her "Lady Lessons." This new season also welcomes guest choreographers to take on the role of "Dean of Dance" including Candis Cayne, Jamal Sims, Adam Cook and Phlex.

This season of "RuPaul's Drag U" will also feature a new batch of visiting celebrity professors including: Donna Mills, Brittany Snow, Holly Robinson-Peete, Angela Kinsey, Joely Fisher, Tamara Taylor, Robin Givens and Tamala Jones.

"RuPaul's Drag U" strives to help modern women from all walks live their sexiest and most fulfilling lives. However, the road to fabulousness is a long one as each woman is carefully transformed from the inside-out. These eye-opening transformations will leave even the most educated viewer with a new respect for the power of drag.

"RuPaul's Drag U" is produced by World of Wonder Productions with Fenton Bailey, Randy Barbato, Tom Campbell, Gina Rubinstein and RuPaul Charles serving as Executive Producers. Brent Zacky and Pamela Post serve as Executive Producers for Logo.
