VH1 has unveiled the full roster of guest judges for the upcoming 10th season of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” — and it’s a murderers row of talent, from Shania Twain to Lena Dunham to Halsey to Kate Upton.
In addition to the previously announced Christina Aguilera, the season’s guests also include “Broad City” stars Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, Billy Eichner, “Big Sick” co-writers Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon, Padma Lakshmi, Courtney Love, Nico Tortorella, Audra McDonald, Ashanti, Logan Browning, Tisha Campbell-Martin, Carrie Preston, Andrew Rannells, Miles Heizer, Todrick Hall and Lizzo.
Stephen Colbert, Andy Cohen and Cheyenne Jackson will not serve as judges, but are being teased as making “special guest appearances.”
Earlier this week, former guest judge Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman recorded a podcast with TheWrap in which he ran down what it takes to be a “Drag Race” judge — and who gets handsy behind the scenes. You can listen on Apple or right here:
VH1 announced last month that the 10th season would run back-to-back with the currently airing “All Stars” season, with the season premiere set for Thursday, March 22. It will be made up of entirely of 90-minute episodes, with the after show “RuPaul’s Drag Race: Untucked” to immediately follow each week.
The 14 queens competing on the season are Asia O’Hara (Dallas, TX), Aquaria (Brooklyn, NY), Blair St. Clair (Indianapolis, IN), Dusty Ray Bottoms (New York, NY), Eureka O’Hara (Johnson City, TN), Kalorie Karbdashian-Williams (Albuquerque, NM), Kameron Michaels (Nashville, TN), Mayhem Miller (Riverside, CA), Miz Cracker (New York, NY), Monét X Change (Bronx, NY), Monique Heart (Kansas City, MO), The Vixen (Chicago, IL), Vanessa Vanjie Mateo (Tampa, FL) and Yuhua Hamasaki (New York, NY).
“While preparing for season 10, I realized that one of our contestants was 11 years old when we first launched Drag Race,” host RuPaul said at the time of the announcement. “The fact that we’re still here and still going strong is because of our talented queens. They are the heart and soul of the series. And as they continue to evolve and push the boundaries of drag, so does Drag Race.”
