Drag Race Will Have a Christmas Special. Put That in Your Gingerbread House and Ice It!
Just as the jack-o-lanterns and spider webs disappear from the stores, the Christmas trees and lights come up and you know that the most wonderful time of year is just around the corner. And if you’re feeling a little Bah-Humbug because you’re not done with all the Pumpkin Spice everything—well then your tune may soon change when you learn that RuPaul has something in store for you that will get you in the holiday spirit.
According to EW, VH1 announced that RuPaul’s Drag Race will have a holiday special that will jingle your bells. The Emmy-winning series will air RuPaul’s Drag Race Holi-slay Spectacular, a festive celebration that will bring back eight Drag Race queens as they go wig to wig in hopes of being the first Drag Race Xmas Queen. The television special will bring back Eureka O’Hara, Shangela, Jasmine Masters, Kim Chi, Mayhem Miller, Latrice Royale, Sonique, and reigning All-Stars queen Trixie Mattel—Yaaaasss, Claus—the Yuletide is already gay!
Michelle Visage and Ross Mathews will return to join Mama Ru on the judges’ panel as the contestants perform a series of routines choreographed by Todrick Hall and to the tune of RuPaul’s holiday albums Slay Belles and Christmas Party. Put that in your gingerbread house and ice it!
Will Shangela come out of a big box with Christmas wrapping only to be snatched of the crown once again? We’ll have to watch and sip all the Christmas T.
