Celebrities, start your engines! And may the best secret drag queen win!
VH1 has ruvealed a sneak peek the second season of RuPaul’s Secret Celebrity Drag Race. The new season is set to premiere August 12 at 8pm ET/PT.
Filmed in front of a live studio audience, nine celebrities from all walks of life have agreed to leave their famous identities behind as they fully embrace the miracle of drag. It will be kept secret who each contestant is until they are asked to sashay away, allowing viewers to focus on their charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent.
Each week, the celebrities will undergo complete drag transformations and compete in the ultimate lip sync showdown based on a new category until one of them is crowned “America’s Next Celeb Drag Superstar” and awarded $100,000 for their favorite charity.
The contestants will be mentored by “Queen Supremes” Brooke Lynn Heights, Jujubee, and Monét X Change. Additional Drag Race legends set to make special appearances this season include Eureka, Gottmik, Katya, Morgan McMichaels, Silky Nutmeg Ganache, and Violet Chachki. RuPaul returns as host alongside resident judges Michelle Visage, Carson Kressley, and Ross Mathews.
RuPaul’s Secret Celebrity Drag Race is produced by World of Wonder Productions with Fenton Bailey, Randy Barbato, Tom Campbell, RuPaul Charles, and James Sunderland serving as Executive Producers. Tim Palazzola serves as Executive Producer for VH1 and Jen Passovoy serves as Supervising Producer.
