Shantay, you stay! Or in this case, you come back. For another shot at the crown.
On November 9 All Stars 2 finalists Detox and Katya as well as All Stars 3 winner Trixie Mattel have announced the cast for the new season of All Stars.
The queens were excited to introduce some fan-favorites and one veteran queen, who will get her third chance at the race for a spot in the Drag Hall Of Fame. Previous winners include Chad Michaels, Alaska and most recently (and controversially) Trixie Mattel.
The queens joining directly after the most recent tenth season of the Emmy-winning show are Monét X Change and Monique Heart, both of whom have shown creativity and comedic talent on the show. Joining them will be three queens from season nine whose appearance on All Stars comes as no surprise due to their enormous fan base, their iconic looks, and their evolving style: Valentina, Trinity Tailor and Farrah Moan.
Next on the list is season eight finalist Naomi Smalls, who now has the chance to prove her evolving to another fan favorite, this time from season seven – Jasmine Masters.
An interesting contestant should be Gia Gunn from season six, who has come out as transgender since the show aired. After some controversy regarding RuPaul’s comments about trans drag queens, this addition shows a move to show the audience that drag is a much larger spectrum than what has been previously shown on the past seasons
From the earlier seasons, two queens are joining the lineup – one of them has already participated in All Stars’ first season – the beloved Latrice Royale and Manilla Luizon from season three.
All Stars 4 starts airing on December 14 on VH1.
