Rather than waiting for RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars season 3 to sashay away, VH1 has snatched the opportunity to release the cast for the tenth iteration of RuPaul’s Drag Race. The season begins Thursday, March 22, 2018 with 90-minute episodes, a departure from previous seasons of the show, featuring mainly hour-long episodes. Each episode of the new season of Drag Race will be followed by the popular aftershow, RuPaul’s Drag Race: Untucked.
Meet the fourteen queens who will be competing for the crown on Season 10 here.
Aquaria already has a big reputation preceding her into the competition. At just 21, Aquaria has been photographed by Steven Klein for the pages of Vogue Italia. Aquaria is the drag daughter of season 4 champ Sharon Needles.
Asia T. O'Hara (Dallas, TX)
Texas is back in the house. A formidable competitor on the pageant circuit, Asia won Miss Gay America the first time she entered. Multi-talented, Asia has a costuming business on the side, designing for color guard teams and ice skaters.
Blair St. Clair (Indianapolis, IN)
A small-town girl with big city dreams, Blair St. Clair is a Broadway baby at heart. Last year, TMZ reported that St. Clair was casted, but filming the show was a violation of a court order stating he must stay in Indiana following a DUI bust.
Dusty Ray Bottoms (NYC)
Self-described as “dark, glamorous and trashy,” this punky queen defies categorization. Look for the queen with the signature dotty-faced makeup.
Eureka O'Hara (Johnson City, TN)
Season 9’s Southern belle departed way too soon after injuring her knee. But Eureka is back following knee surgery, and hungrier than ever to prove herself the second time around.
Kalorie Karbdashian-Williams (Albuquerque, NM)
Kalorie’s infectious giggle might be the first thing to enter a room, but it’s her gravity-defying ass that has all eyes on it as she leaves. This twerk queen proudly flaunts her curvaceous body in daring, sexy dance performances.
Kameron Michaels (Nashville, TN)
You’re equally as likely to find this tattooed muscle queen down at the gym pumping iron as you are to find performing at her local drag bar in Nashville. Deliberately intending to capture strength and beauty, Kameron Michaels is the body-builder Barbie doll.
Mayhem Miller (Riverside, CA)
Mayhem enters the competition with big expectations, as the sister of Drag Race alumni like Raven, Morgan McMichaels, Delta and Detox. Mayhem dazzles her Los Angeles’ audiences with polish and sass.
Miz Cracker (NYC)
Proud to call Bob The Drag Queen her drag mother, Miz Cracker began doing drag as a member of Bob’s Marches for Equality in Times Square. Pretty and witty, Miz Cracker captures you with her beauty, and then surprises you with the belly laughs.
Monét X Change (Bronx, NY)
Monet blurs the lines of comedy, performance and New York City grit. A degree in Opera Performance means she’s the singer of the season, while her bright, colorful street style ensures all the judges' eyes will be on her.
Monique Heart (Kansas City, MO)
A creative well-rounded queen who knows how to do hair, makeup, dance… and make an entrance. A devoted Christian, Monique enters the competition hungrier than most to win, and with a promise to live up to her moniker as the “Heart of Season 10.”
The Vixen (Chicago, IL)
Hailing from Chicago’s South Side, The Vixen combines elements of political art and protest into her performances. This vocal, woke queen brings both activism and fire to the stage -- and is not about to take on her competition lying down. She's also a skilled rapper, as evidenced in her musical collaboration with Chicago sister Shea Couleé.
Vanessa Vanjie Mateo (Tampa, FL)
All Stars season 1 star Alexis Mateo’s drag daughter brings electricity to the stage, with her high-energy dance performances and winning personality. Will Vanessa finish the job that Alexis Mateo started?
Yuhua Hamasaki (NYC)
Originally hailing from China, Yuhua moved to Manhattan’s Chinatown when she was seven. Now a sickening seamstress by day and a hard-working queen by night, Yuhua regularly sews gowns for New York royalty like Peppermint and Bob the Drag Queen.
