"We challenged ourselves to make TV's most outrageous show even more outrageous," RuPaul, who acts as host and executive producer for the show, said in a statement. "And I'm happy to report we've succeeded."
Thirteen contestants will battle it out for the coveted title of “America’s Next Drag Superstar” and the biggest cash prize yet, $100,000, among a prize package that includes headlining spot on Logo’s Drag Race Tour, a one-of-a-kind trip courtesy of AlandChuck.travel and a lifetime supply of NYX Cosmetics. But before Ru crowns the new next diva, “wigs will fly and drama will run high!”
