Emmy(R) Award-winning "RuPaul's Drag Race" ru-veals cast for Season 13 premiering Friday, January 1 at 8PM ET/PT on VH1

New York, NY - December 9, 2020 - VH1 today ru-vealed the cast for the 13th season of the global phenomenon "RuPaul's Drag Race," premiering Friday, January 1, at 8PM ET/PT. After winning six Emmy(R) Awards this year and solidifying itself as the most awarded reality competition show in history, the highly anticipated new season is bringing together thirteen fabulous queens as they vie for the title of "America's Next Drag Superstar" and a cash prize of $100,000.

Additionally, the Emmy(R)-nominated after-show "RuPaul's Drag Race: Untucked" will premiere immediately following at 9:30PM ET/PT. "Untucked" brings viewers behind the scenes to the backstage drama as the queens anxiously await their fate and see who will need to lip-sync for their life to avoid the week's elimination.

"Competing safely and fiercely, our 13 queens proved that it takes more than a global pandemic to keep a good queen down," said Executive Producer and five-time Emmy(R) Award-winning host, RuPaul.

The newest queens who are ready to ring in a "Happy Ru Year" and compete for the crown of "America's Next Drag Superstar" were introduced across the RuPaul's Drag Race social footprint with first-of-its-kind, custom short-form video tailored for TikTok, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.
