As Drag Race season 14 comes to an end, fans are starting their engines to watch the all-winners cast competing on RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 7.
This year, All Stars will be an “all-winners” season featuring some of the most legendary queens to ever compete on Drag Race. As expected, this very special season will feature the highest grand prize ever: $200,000. Unlike All Stars 3 – which had BeBe Zahara Benet competing as a winner in a cast of returning queens – this entire season will only feature queens who have previously won the show.
The cast features a mix of regular season winners and All Stars winners, which should make things even more interesting for the fans. With $200,000 on the line and a full cast of queens who have already proven themselves to be worthy winners, this will surely be the hardest season of Drag Race of all time. In the end, the winner of All Stars 7 will be crowned the “Queen of all Queens.”
Scroll through to see all the queens competing on All Stars 7 and how they did during their original seasons. And tune in to watch the Drag Race All Stars 7 premiere on Friday, May 20 on Paramount+.
There were a lot of tough competitors on Drag Race season 12, but Jaida Essence Hall still managed to snatch the crown in a lip sync for the crown finale recorded in her own living room. During her run in the season, this Milwaukee queen won three maxi challenges and only landed in the bottom two once. Hall is the most recent winner of a regular Drag Race season to be featured on All Stars 7, so she’ll be the newbie among this all-winners cast.
Jinkx Monsoon went head-to-head with drag legends such as Roxxxy Andrews, Alaska, and Detox on Drag Race season five, but she stood her ground and proved that she was a competitive force as a drag performer. With two maxi challenge wins and only one bottom-two placement, Monsoon arrived at the grand finale with a pretty solid track record. One of the most notorious things about Monsoon’s original run on Drag Race was her impersonation of Little Edie at the Snatch Game. In many ways, that impersonation is regarded by many fans as the best Snatch Game in the herstory of the series.
Monet X Change walked out of season 10 of Drag Race without any maxi challenge wins, but her lip sync performances were all absolutely iconic and she was crowned Miss Congeniality at the finale. The sponge queen was then cast on All Stars 4 and felt like she had a lot to prove. Ultimately, X Change had an incredibly strong run on All Stars that included three challenge wins. This resulted in the first – and, thus far, the only – tie in Drag Race herstory: both X Change and Trinity The Tuck were crowned the winners of All Stars 4.
Many fans argue that the third season of Drag Race was one of the hardest cycles in herstory, and for good measure! That season featured an obnoxious number of design/sewing challenges that had the queens losing their minds by the end of the season. The competition was then narrowed down to an incredibly competitive top three that consisted of Raja, Manila Luzon, and Alexis Mateo. All three finalists had won three maxi challenges on the show. On the other hand, Raja only fell into the bottom once. In the end, Raja was crowned the winner of season three.
Shea Couleé first competed in season nine, where she won four maxi challenges and only had to lip sync for her life once. Alas, she ultimately lost the grand finale’s lip sync for the crown to Sasha Velour’s rose petal reveal. A few years later, Couleé came back for All Stars and got the ru-demption she deserved. With two maxi challenge wins, Couleé faced was crowned the winner of All Stars 5 and officially entered the Drag Race Hall of Fame.
Another season nine finalist was Trinity The Tuck, who won three maxi challenges and fell into the bottom once during her original season. When Trinity came back for All Stars 4, the queen had a clear glow-up that placed her as one of the frontrunners to win the crown. With four maxi challenge wins and one bottom-two placement, Trinity was one of the winners of All Stars 4 alongside X Change.
As the first-ever winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK, it’ll be exciting for fans to watch The Vivienne competing with US winners and finally making some money from appearing in the series. The top three of Drag Race UK season one was very competitive given that The Vivienne, Baga Chipz, and Divina De Campo all had three challenge wins. Nonetheless, The Vivienne was still crowned UK’s first Drag Race Superstar.
Despite not having the strongest track record in season 11 – one maxi challenge win and one bottom-two placement – Yvie Oddly still managed to kill it at the finale and snatch the crown. In the years that followed her win, Oddly has proven herself to be one of the deadliest lip sync assassins in Drag Race herstory. She’s now going to compete against the best of the best, but one can still be sure that beating Oddly in a lip sync will be a tall order.
