Shante, You Stay: Here Are the Queens Still Competing on RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 6
It's amazing that after 12 years of RuPaul's Drag Race, host RuPaul is still able to keep the fans (and the queens) guessing. Season six of All Stars, which premiered on June 24, wasted no time in putting the queens to the test with some next-level challenges. During "All Star Variety Extravaganza," each of the queens was tasked with showing off their skills in a talent show. While some of the talents might've fallen a little flat on stage, others had us wanting more — we're talking about Jan's amazing vocal performance and A'Keria C. Davenport's dazzling dance routine.
If the queens thought they'd get a break from episode two, "The Blue Ball" showed just how wrong they were. Some of the outfits proved that some of them should've spent more time on sewing lessons. Episode three, "Side Hustles," saw the queens split into teams as they created a commercial to try to sell services for Rent-a-Queen, Drag Fixers, and Drag Exorcists. Rather than a traditional rusical for episode four, RuPaul kept things sporty by having the queens lip-sync some of his iconic songs in the style of famous half-time performers (including the first ever celebrity performer, Carol Channing). Episode five saw a return to the talk-show format, with the groups participating in their take on Red Table Talk called "Pink Table Talk." It seems RuPaul has decided this season of All Stars should be performance heavy, as episodes six and seven had the queens acting out a scene from "RuMerican Horror Story" and writing their own girl group verses.
Seeing as All Stars is "still a rumocracy," each week features a top queen chosen by RuPaul lip-syncing against a lip-sync assassin from a previous season. As if that wasn't enough, the first big twist of the season was that there's a game within a game. Seven episodes in, what this game entails is still anybody's guess. Keep checking back weekly to see which queens have gotten the chop and which queens are still in the running for a place in the Drag Race Hall of Fame.
