More about the new season... South African premiere date still to be confirmed:
VH1 today announced that multiple Grammy award-winning artist, Ricky Martin, will grace the main stage for the highly anticipated premiere episode of "RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars" airing Friday, June 5th at 8PM ET/PT (in America).
The global superstar will guest judge the all star queens in a dynamic premiere where the returning favorites open the library for a reading mini-challenge and hit the runway for a "Werq the World" variety extravaganza.
Martin will kick off a show stopping line up of guest judges including Tessa Thompson, Madison Beer, Martyn Lawrence Bullard, Nicole Byer, Sarah Hyland, Tommy Dorfman, Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman, Bebe Rexha, Jane Krakowski, Sam Richardson and Todrick Hall who will join RuPaul and judge alongside show regulars Michelle Visage, Carson Kressley and Ross Mathews.
This season, the traditional elimination rules for "All Stars" have been shaken up.
At the end of each episode, RuPaul will name one top all star of the week. That queen will lip sync for her legacy against a mysterious lip sync assassin, chosen from the most iconic performers in "Drag Race" herstory.
If the top all star of the week wins the lip sync, she wins a $10,000 tip and the power to eliminate the bottom queen of her choice.
If the lip sync assassin wins, a bottom queen selected from a secret group vote gets the chop, and the $10,000 rolls over until a top all star wins.
The 10 competing queens will give their all to impress the judges as they vie for a spot in the "Drag Race Hall of Fame" and a grand prize of $100,000.
The previously announced queens include:
Alexis Mateo (Season 3, All Stars 1)
Blair St. Clair (Season 10)
Derrick Barry (Season 8)
India Ferrah (Season 3)
Jujubee (Season 2, All Stars 1)
Mariah Paris Balenciaga (Season 3)
Mayhem Miller (Season 10)
Miz Cracker (Season 10)
Ongina (Season 1)
Shea Couleé (Season 9)
