Hosted by Emmy winner RuPaul Charles, VH1 will begin the tenth original season of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” on Thursday night, following a hugely successful third iteration of its All-Stars franchise that concluded with the crowning of Trixie Mattel on March 15th. Trixie became the 12th overall winner of the series that has forever changed the landscape of drag performance and appreciation worldwide. Click through our photo gallery that highlights all of the past “RuPaul’s Drag Race” winners, from BeBe Zahara Benet to the most recent.
For the last two years the TV academy has recognized series host RuPaul for his own “charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent” by awarding him the 2016 and 2017 Emmys for Best Reality Host. RuPaul serves on the show’s judging panel alongside close friend Michelle Visage and a revolving door of celebrity guests including “Celebrity Big Brother” winner Ross Matthews, Carson Kressley and pop music icon Christina Aguilera who is set to appear in the upcoming season premiere.
The judges’ tastes have covered a wide variety of drag styles over the years, honoring forms like Bianca Del Rio’s sarcastic comedy (Season 6), Raja’s fashion-forward creativity (Season 3) and the drop dead gorgeousness of Sharon Needles (Season 4). But which queen is YOUR all-time favorite champion? Vote in our updated poll below including the two most recent winners, Trixie and season 9’s Brooklyn based intellectual queen, Sasha Velour.
