On Friday night, fans found out who would be joining the RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars Season 3 cast — or at least, most of the cast. Within the last few minutes of the VH1 special, host RuPaul left things on a cliffhanger — teasing that all 10 contestants had been announced, even though only nine were actually revealed. Then, Ru coyly pretended to be “bad at math.” So, who will be the 10th queen on All Stars 3? Only time will tell, but in the meantime, fans have plenty of guesses ranging from Season 9’s Valentina to BeBe Zahara Benet from the very first season. Basically, the predictions are all over the place.
Season 3 of Drag Race: All Stars premieres all the way in January 2018, according to Entertainment Weekly. This airdate offers a few possibilities: Ru could keep fans in the dark until the very first episode, or maybe there will be some sort of Facebook Live announcement in the months leading up to the show. After all, before the VH1 special aired on Friday night, Aja was announced as an All Stars contestant earlier in the day during a FB Live. That means, honestly, anything can happen. Especially since RuPaul is the one in charge here. In a press release prior the Ruveal special, the host said,
It’s also worth noting that Ru mentioned that there were more than 100 queens to pick from, so there’s no shortage of options. So far, the cast includes Aja, BenDeLaCreme, Milk, Shangela, Thorgy Thor, Trixie Mattel, Kennedy Davenport, Chi Chi DeVayne, and Morgan McMichaels. They’re all featured in the promotional photo below, which further hints it may not be until the premiere that another queen arrives to shake things up.
