‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race All Stars 3’ premieres January 25. Check out the weekly episode recaps here!
Following the success of bringing you weekly recaps of Ru Paul’s Drag Race season 9, I’ve joined forces with one of RPDR’s superfans (find him on Instagram @dragrace_facts) to bring you the weekly tea. Just make sure you’ve watched the latest episode, as there are obviously spoilers aplenty.
But before we get to All Stars 3, have you seen this short video from All Stars 2 winner Alaska? It’s a mini-interview/behind-the-scenes glimpse where she talks about a number of interesting topics: losing her season, winning All Stars, Sharon, her career and more!
Check it out here –
Now back to All Stars 3! To get you in the mood, here’s a sneak peek at the cast, as well as a few predictions and initial thoughts about each queen.
All Stars 3: Meet The Queens
Aja (Season 9)
I love Aja. She has been one of my favourite queens since long before season 9, and I don’t think she did as good as she could have in season 9. While she did have some of the most memorable moments (Linda Evangelista…And can I just say I really liked her Sista’ dissasta’ lewk), but she had so much more to show!
I’m so excited to see more of her and I hope she is more confident and believes in herself more. I just hope it’s not too soon for her from her original season.
Prediction: I hope Aja finally wins a challenge this season. As for her placement, I think it will be somewhat similar to how she placed on season 9. I would love Aja to be top 4, but I think she will be middle of the pack.
BenDeLaCreme (Season 6)
Ben is one of my favourite queens from Drag Race. I love campy drag. Queens like her and Jaymes Mansfield will always hold a special place in my heart.
I think Ben will do better now that Darriene is gone…I hope she does herself proud.
Prediction: I think Ben will be very hit and miss on the runway. She’ll have some looks that go over very well, and some that are a complete bust!
Chi Chi DeVayne (Season 8)
The Bayou Queen is back!
I love Chi Chi. She’s so sweet and can dance the house down. And I try not to read too much into spoilers, but I couldn’t help it. From what is speculated, let’s just say she’ll be leaving on that midnight train to Georgia a little sooner than she might have hoped.
Prediction: I hope Chi Chi does well and that the rumours are false. I mean, she can’t be eliminated on a dance challenge, can she? Then again, Adore was in the bottom in a singing competition and Tatiana lost snatch game so you just never know!
Kennedy Davenport (Season 7)
Yes MA’AM! The dancing diva of Texas is back and I’m so here for it!
To be honest, I think Kennedy had shown us a lot of herself in season 7, so I’m not sure she really has anything to prove…and girl…what was that entrance look…sorry but BOOT!
Prediction: Similar to Ben, I think she’ll miss the mark on a few runways. From her trailer, I love what she did for the flower themed runway (spoiler!) – so I think she will also have some good looks…I hope she does well.
Milk (Season 6)
Ready for some MILK?
YAAAAAASSS! Milk is back! Let’s be honest, when she sashayed away, we were all either super happy – or super sad – because I don’t think Milk’s drag aesthetic was really appreciated in season 6.
I think she’s grown so much now and her overall drag has improved so much that people can’t help but love her. I want to root for her this season. She’s kinda the underdog, no?
Prediction: I think Milk will struggle with the first challenge. I think she may even be in the bottom 3, but I don’t think she will be first eliminated. I think Milk will place higher than Aja, but won’t be top 4.
Morgan McMichaels (Season 2)
I am so excited that Morgan is coming back, she has changed so much since her season almost 9 years ago and her drag has improved so much, not to mention that mug! Morgan is a seasoned queen who isn’t afraid to speak her mind, and that promo look…she looked STUNNING!
Prediction: I see Morgan getting a bitchy edit. Not quite the ‘Phi Phi’ but maybe more of a season 5 Roxy Andrews edit. I think Morgan will go home maybe 4th? I want her to be top 4 but I think she will go home around half way through the season.
Shangela (Seasons 2 and 3)
Haleloo, she’s back bitches! It’s Shangela!
Now a lot of people weren’t too happy that Miss Thing was getting a third chance. But they were also the people rooting for Adore to come back for a third time…hmmm!
Anyway, I love Shangela. She is honestly one of the most energetic performers out there. I think she totally deserves her place in All Stars – regardless of what others think.
Prediction: I hope she does well, but as an interesting twist I can see her bomb a comedy challenge and possibly even be in the bottom for one…I think her runways will be hit and miss (very similar to Phi Phi’s in All Stars 2).
Thorgy Thor (Season 8)
Woo! It’s Thorgy Thor:
Yes. Bitch. Work. I can’t wait for some more Thorgy. Let me tell you, I feel incredible that she’s back!
I really am excited to see Thorgy back again. I hope this season she comes out of her shell and isn’t in her head as much!
Prediction: I think Thorgy will showcase some new talents this season, but I can also see her being out early.
Trixie Mattel (Season 7)
Oh honeyyyy – here we go!
As she said herself, Trixie is the uncrowned drag superstar from season 7. Honestly, I think she has it in the bag. Her mug and looks have improved so much, but I do hope she strays away from the all pink and blonde looks she’s been giving. She looks fierce but I want her to show us more!
Prediction: The winner! Trixie will be the Alaska of this season…All she’s missing is that crown!
