The RuPaul’s Drag Race main stage is temporarily transforming into the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Back in October, RuPaul announced that a new Drag Race spin-off would be sashaying onto our TV screens: RuPaul’s Secret Celebrity Drag Race, a four-episode event series featuring 12 sickening stars as they compete for the first-ever title of “America’s Next Celebrity Drag Superstar.”
In each episode three different celebs undergo a complete drag transformation with help from “Queen Supremes” from the Emmy-winning flagship series, including Alyssa Edwards, Asia O’Hara, Bob the Drag Queen, Kim Chi, Monét X Change, Monique Heart, Nina West, Trinity the Tuck, Trixie Mattel, and Vanessa Vanjie Mateo. Not only will contestants compete for the “America’s Next Celebrity Drag Superstar” title and bragging rights, they will also win prize money for the charity of their choice.
“Secret Celebrity Drag Race is a blast,” RuPaul said in a statement. “We put these celebrities through it! Because no matter how famous your charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent is, you still put your pantyhose on one leg at a time.”
In the opening scene from this week’s episode, squirrel friends Alyssa, Asia, and Trinity try to guess the identities of the mystery stars they will be transforming into drag queens. Watch the new clip below.
