The ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars’ Season 9 Cast Has Been Ru-Vealed & It’s Full Of Fan Faves

It’s time to bring back our girls! Just a few days after the winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 16 was crowned on April 19, a new set of queens who will be competing in All Stars Season 9 has officially been Ru-vealed.

In the new All Stars season, eight queens (not 12) will return to the competition to vie for a spot in the Drag Race Hall of Fame and a cash prize of $200,000 — but there’s a twist. For the first time in Drag Race her-story, the queens will “use their drag superpowers for good” and harness “their drag skills to win money for a variety of organizations” as they compete on behalf of charities of their choice.

RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 9 will premiere with two new episodes on Friday, May 17, on Paramount+.

Now, without further adieu, here are the eight queens who are heading back to The Werk Room for another chance at the crown. So racers, start your engines and prepare for a brand-new season of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars.


Drag Race’s Season 13 trendsetter is back ya’ll! Gottmik is bringing her impeccable fashion sense back to the runway as she’s officially competing for a spot in the Drag Race Hall of Fame.

Gottmik will be competing for Trans Lifeline, “a grassroots hotline, advocacy, and micro-grants non-profit offering direct emotional and financial support to trans people in crisis — for the trans community, by the trans community.”

Angeria Paris VanMicheals

Angeria is back! This fan favorite Southern Belle is returning to The Werk Room after being a Season 14 finalist. As her official bio states, Angeria “checks all the boxes” and “is ready to claim her spot in the Drag Race Hall of Fame.”
