Thursday night on VH1, RuPaul Charles is back and fiercer than ever in the third season of “RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars.” Nine of the best queens from the past nine cycles will battle it out for bragging rights as the newest member of the Drag Race Hall of Fame. They are: Morgan McMichaels (Season 2), Shangela (Seasons 2 and 3), BenDeLaCreme (Season 6), Milk (Season 6), Kennedy Davenport (Season 7), Trixie Mattel (Season 7), Chi Chi DeVayne (Season 8), Thorgy Thor (Season 8) and Aja (Season 9).
In VH1’s sneak peak for the season premiere (watch above), RuPaul welcomes the All-Stars by declaring, “This season is all about my comeback kids. Prove you’ve got what it takes to go all the way and the last thing you’ll hear me say is ‘Welcome to the Drag Race Hall of Fame.'” RuPaul then jokes in the preview trailer, “I see all the hookers are here!”
Now you can make your predictions at Gold Derby from week to week for who will win the Emmy-winning reality TV show and who’ll sashay away next. Click through our photo gallery below for a closer look at the nine former drag queens that returned for “RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 3,” or check out these official VH1 bios:
Aja — Your edges are officially snatched! Fresh off of Season 9, the banji bitch of Brooklyn is back to pick up where she left off. Princess Disastah may have erupted from a volcano sis, but Aja’s refined and ready to show that she’s a force to be reckoned with. The true gagarini will be when Aja hits the runway, leaving everyone gooped and gagged in her wake sis. In a sea of Linda Evangelista’s, there’s only one Aja.
Chi Chi Devayne — Laissez les bon temps rouler! The Creole queen from Season 8 is back and ready to let the good times roll. Chi Chi has hung up the ‘cheap queen’ moniker and is ready to embrace the finer things in life like expensive jewels, and maybe even the coveted crown. This southern bayou princess is ready to perform and burn up the stage once again. She doesn’t get ready, she stays ready.
BenDeLaCreme — HI EVERYBODY! IT’S ME, BENDELACREME! Season 6’s Miss Congeniality is ready for another shot at the crown, but she’s still Ms Crème if you’re nasty. This campy queen is ready to reach new levels of supremacy and dominate her competition. Dela’s terminally delightful demeanor and sickening talent will be her greatest strengths, as she navigates the treacherous waters of All Stars 3.
Kennedy Davenport — Well, hello! The dancing diva of Texas is back and ready to slay. The struggle may have been real in Season 7, but Kennedy has crystalized and emerged from the embers stronger than ever. Her background in pageants has proven that her exquisite polish and attention to detail is undeniable, and she’s ready to show it off again one jump split at a time. Newark. LaGuardia. Kennedy.
Milk — She does a body good, girl! It’s milkin’ time and the dairy queen of Season 6 is back and better than ever. Known for her groundbreaking runways, Milk did ‘weird’ before it was chic. She’s bringing back the jaw-dropping looks, and is ready for some amazing fashion moments . This time around Milk won’t only outshine her competitors, she’ll whiz past them doing a triple axel jump… wearing a beard. And pregnant.
Morgan McMichaels — Morgan McMichaellllllls, bitch! Since this Queen of Los Angeles drag stomped into the workroom back in Season 2, Morgan’s been ready to once again return and compete for the crown. Morgan’s fierce attitude and lip sync abilities are only some of the many tools she has to help propel herself into the Drag Race Hall of Fame – right next to her drag mother: All Stars 1 winner, Chad Michaels. In this competition, the Scottish Scandal is out for blood.
Shangela — Halleloo! The original comeback queen of Season 2 and 3 is jumping out of boxes and werqing her way once again down the runway – because she is what!? Sickening! This time, the Nancy Drew of Drag, has her sight set on one thing and one thing only: the crown. If anyone knows how to attack with strategy, it’s this pint-sized princess of Paris, Texas, and she is taking no prisoners.
Thorgy Thor — Woo! Thorgy with a T H and orgy and I feel incredible! Thorgy is back from Season 8 and ready to kick off some All Stars 3 shenanigans. You better think again Ru-Ru kitty if you underestimate this Brooklyn babe, because there’s no doubting she’s in it to win it. Thorgy’ bag of tricks is in tow, and she’s ready to bring the drama and conflama. Witty catchphrase, you know what I mean?
Trixie Mattel — This isn’t Maury Povich?! Oh honey, Season 7 was just the beginning for Trixie, who is no doubt still painting for the check cashing place down the street. Just like Barbie, Trixie relocated from Wisconsin to southern California, her dreams still unfolding as she competes again for the crown. No doubt her biting sense of humor will serve this comedy queen well as she dukes it out with the best of the best. Honey!
