General News Ru Paul’s All Stars season 5 – Which queens are appearing and who are the judges

And this time, All Stars rules have been suspended...

Just as he would during a regular season, at the end of each All-Stars 5 episode, RuPaul will name the challenge victor and the bottom-performing queens of the week. Then that queen will lip sync against a "mysterious lip sync assassin", as the Viacom network puts it.

They'll just be back for the one performance, but they'll have one mission: to beat their All Stars competitor.

As we can see in this teaser promo, we can expect a lot of twists and excitement. 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 also make their mark on this season's stage.

Usually in All Stars, the top two queens of the week lip sync against each other to determine who the victor for the week is.

There is also footage shown of the "ten fierce queens" who are returning for their 'ru-demption, ' with Jujubee saying she's here to, 'slay and filet and slice and dice all these b****es'.

If theDrag Race All Stars 5 queen wins the lip sync, she'll pick up a $10,000 tip and the power to eliminate the bottom queen of her choice. These assassins will be a different super star queen each week. If the assassin wins, a bottom queen selected from a secret group vote will get the chop, and the $10,000 will roll over until a top all star wins a lip sync.

That could add up to a lot of money, honey!

Derrick Barry returns from season eight, competing against season nine finalist Shea Couleé and three season 10 queens: Blair St Clair, Mayhem Miller and Miz Cracker.

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 exciting news comes as fans are preparing to wave goodbye to drag race season 12 - for which the finale episode was filmed online as a result of the ongoing pandemic.

I've got my money on Shea Couleé this season, after she was narrowly beaten out by season 9 victor, Sasha Velour. She absolutely slayed in season 9, so I have no doubt that she'll do it again in All Stars.
