'Drag Race' Alum Alaska Thunderfuck Announced For "The Last Sharknado: It's About Time"

SyFy Channel has announced that RuPaul’s Drag Race alum, Alaska Thunderfuck, is set to slay in the final iteration of cult movie series, Sharknado.

Alaska will bring her formidable forces to bear against the rain of sharks alongside Ziering and fellow co-stars Tara Reid, Tori Spelling, Dean McDermott, and La Toya Jackson.

Alaska placed second in Season 5 of Drag Race and was crowned 'kween' in Season 2 of RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars becoming Drag Race royalty.

Alaska shared the toothy news via Twitter complete with shark emojis.

You may recall that Drag Race alum Derrick Barry (Season 8) appeared in Sharknado: The 4th Awakens.

This last installment of the over-the-top movies, The Last Sharknado: It’s About Time, will star returning hero Ian Ziering (Beverly Hills 90210) as “Fin Shepard,” who is forced to become erstwhile shark slayer during freak weather tornadoes which suck up sharks from the ocean and rain them all over the world.

With ridiculous storylines, camp dialogue and meant-to-be cheesy special effects, the franchise has been a social media darling since July 2013 when the first film debuted. Five more wet and wild cinematic adventures have since followed.

SyFy has already announced that The Last Sharknado: It’s About Time will be the sixth and final installment of the camp series. This chapter will include time travel as the series' last frontier.Look for The Last Sharknado: It’s About Time to premiere on SyFy August 19.
