“Rise and shine All Stars!” RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 6 is almost upon us, and a new trailer promises the show will be filled with drama, tears aplenty, and perhaps the biggest gag of all!
In one clip in the trailer, RuPaul is seen telling the queens that there will be a “game within a game”...
We don’t know what that means but we cannot wait to find out more!
All Stars 6 will see 13 queens, including Ginger Minj, Jand and Jiggly Caliente, compete for the prize of $100,000 and a spot in the Drag Race Hall of Fame. The new series will debut on 24 June exclusively on Paramount+.

“The girls are out for blood”
A lot is packed into a short one minute thirty trailer posted on Twitter on Tuesday (8 June) The queens seem to be here for business and tensions look tight, with series 10 finalist Eureka saying “the girls are out for blood”
Trinity K Bonet, from series 6, is also heard saying, “All Stars is a game of friendship and strategy. You want to be here, show it.” Possibly referring to RuPaul’s mention of the show being “a game within a game”, Jan (series 12) says in a confessional she’s “gagged”.
“It was right on point.”
As well as a glimpse at just some of the drama we’re sure is coming, the trailer also gives a snapshot at some of those joining regular judges RuPaul, Michelle Visage, Carson Kressley, and Ross Matthews on the panel.
Emma Roberts, Charli XCX, Tina Knowles (yes, that’s right, the mother of Beyoncé!) are all seen sat on the panel, with Knowles saying to one competitor, “it was right on point.” If she’s saying that then whoever she’s speaking to must be doing something right!
RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 6 is set to debut on Paramount+ on 24 June with two back-to-back episodes, with new episodes every Thursday. Nothing has been announced as far as where fans in the UK can watch the series.
