Season Two Supertrailer:
New York, NY - August 2, 2016 -"RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars" season two sashays to the screen on Thursday, August 25 at 8:00 PM ET/PT with a queen-sized 90-minute episode, loaded with more sickening twists and turns than the Presidential election. For the first time in "Drag Race" history, the full season will simulcast on Logo and VH1.
This season, RuPaul is changing the rules and will not be eliminating any of the queens. In a shocking new twist, the queens will be called upon to eliminate each other. Each week, the top two queens will "lip-sync for their legacy" with the winner having the power to send one of her competitors home.
The new gameplay will radically change the group dynamic and their strategies to win. In previous seasons, the queens had to impress RuPaul and the judges only when presenting on the main stage. Now, the queens have to work to impress each other at all times, on and off the stage.
"Honey, nobody can claim that this race is rigged," proclaimed Emmy-nominated host RuPaul. "I gave the power to the people. May the best All Star win!"
As previously announced, the new season features Adore Delano, Alaska, Alyssa Edwards, Coco Montrese, Detox, Ginger Minj, Katya, Phi Phi O'Hara, Roxxxy Andrews, and Tatianna.
"Drag Race" continues to be a magnet for exciting and diverse guest judges from fashion, music, and media. Joining the main stage panel of Todrick Hall, Carson Kressley, Michelle Visage and RuPaul, is Raven-Symone, Ross Mathews, Jeremy Scott, Nicole Scherzinger, Graham Norton, Aubrey Plaza and more.
