The new glittering gaggle of queens competing in the upcoming eighth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race have been revealed.
The Logo TV channel unveiled the eagerly awaited cast, comprised of 12 of the USA’s drag elite, on Monday night.
The 90-minute season première, to be broadcast on March 7th in the US, will mark a drag milestone; it’ll be the show’s 100th episode and will feature the 100th drag queen to sashay into the work room.
“The fact that RuPaul’s Drag Race is celebrating its 100th episode is undeniable proof that there is an insatiable hunger for authentic, unfiltered and ribald voices that not only challenge the norm, but help redefine mainstream media,” said RuPaul.
Each queen will vie to snatch the crown and strut away with a $100,000 cash prize and the coveted title of “America’s Next Drag Superstar.”
Along the way, they’ll face an unpredictable competition and deliver gag-worthy and jaw-dropping moments as these talented ladies of drag join the fabulous 88 queens who fought for the crown before them.
