VH1 brings back "Untucked" aftershow for new season of "RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars" premiering on Friday, June 5th at 8PM ET/PT
NEW YORK, NY - June 5, 2020 - VH1 today announced the return of the Emmy(R) nominated aftershow "Untucked" to follow "RuPaul's Drag All Stars" for the first time since season one. The series gives viewers an all-access pass to the competition where legendary queens are back to compete for a spot in the "Drag Race Hall of Fame," including behind-the-scenes drama and shade, unseen judge moments and secret vote reveals. Viewers get a front row seat as their favorite "All Stars" spill the tea when "Untucked" premieres Friday, June 5th at 9:30PM ET/PT following the premiere of "RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars" on VH1.
In the new season of "RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars," returning queens sing, dance, sew, and lip sync for their legacy. The last queen standing will waltz away with the "All Stars" crown, a spot in the "Drag Race Hall of Fame" and a cash prize of $100,000.
The previously announced queens include Alexis Mateo (Season 3, All Stars 1), Blair St. Clair (Season 10), Derrick Barry (Season 8), India Ferrah (Season 3), Jujubee (Season 2, All Stars 1), Mariah Paris Balenciaga (Season 3), Mayhem Miller (Season 10), Miz Cracker (Season 10), Ongina (Season 1) and Shea Couleé (Season 9).
This season, the traditional elimination rules for "All Stars" have been shaken up. At the end of each episode, RuPaul will name one top all star of the week. That queen will lip sync against a mysterious lip sync assassin, chosen from the most iconic performers in "Drag Race" herstory. If the top all star of the week wins the lip sync, she wins a $10,000 tip and the power to eliminate the bottom queen of her choice. If the lip sync assassin wins, a bottom queen selected from a secret group vote gets the chop, and the $10,000 rolls over until a top all star wins.
Leading into the premiere of "RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars," "All Stars" winners Monét X Change and Trinity The Tuck will host a special movie marathon of Legally Blonde, 27 Dresses, and The Devil Wears Prada from 1PM to 8PM ET/PT on Friday, June 5th on VH1.
