Twelve fierce OG queens return to light up the main stage. But, in a historic first for the series, former contestants will have two chances to gain Ru-demption. While one of Mama Ru’s girls will win $200,000 and snatch the All Stars crown, the viewing public will have the power to anoint one of them "Queen of the Fame Games" - a title which comes with its own $50,000 reward.
Last season saw Jinx Monsoon crowned a "legendary legend" in a peerless all-winners season, with competitors likes Raja and Trixie the Tuck bringing the house down boots with sick’ning runway lewks and gag-worthy lip-syncs.
There were no eliminations that time. But now the old school rules are back. Expect not-so-secret secret alliances, Untucked post-elimination shade, and plenty of Werk Room drama from our new contingent of queens.
That includes outspoken Bronx queen Kandy Muse, who'll be playing to slay after landing second in season 13. Jessica Wild will want to remind everyone she’s a viable threat after last competing back in 2010, while fan-favorite Jimbo is back for his third ride on the Drag Race rollercoaster, alongside Heidi N Closet, LaLa Ri, and season 5’s herstory-making Monica Beverley Hillz.
In the words of Lady Gaga, they’re doin’ it for the fame – well, and that small matter of $200,000 dollars. So Join Mama Ru and some EXTRA-special guests now, with our guide below explaining how to watch RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars season 8 online. Coming up: Episode 4 airs Friday May 26.
