A pair of TikTok-famous twins, a stunt queen, and *checks notes* the "Simone Biles of drag" are some of the hottest entries in the biggest Drag Race cast ever. Episode 10 – 50/50's Most Gagworthy Stars – is coming up this Saturday as the queens compete for $200,000! Rev up your engine, drop the handbrake and read on as we explain where to watch RuPaul’s Drag Race season 15 online from anywhere (hint: it's found a new home on MTV in the US).

Lap it up while you're thirsty, because RuPaul’s Drag Race season 15 is the first of 17(!) Drag Race shows that have already been confirmed for 2023. Add to that the expansion to 16 queens, making this the biggest Drag Race cast ever, and we could be looking at near enough a new episode for every day of the year. Perhaps a little more drag than race...

But when the season 15 queens look this good, Drag Race fatigue can take a back seat. Sugar and Spice are those aforementioned twins – and of course Spice is the edgier of the duo – while Anetra is the Taekwondo specialist and Jax is looking to bring some gymnastic flair to the werkroom. There are also a couple of exes, the drag mother of Kerri Colby, Sasha Colby, and Bosco’s drag sister, Irene Dubois.

Guest judges include Ariana Grande, Janelle Monáe, Maren Morris and Orville Peck, while Ts Madison is joining Michelle Visage, Carson Kressley and Ross Mathews on a full-time basis.

It's always completely unhinged, the most sickly sweet and salty show ever created and your guiltiest pleasure, so follow our guide below to find out how to watch RuPaul’s Drag Race season 15 online wherever you are.
