Remember when the cash prize on RuPaul’s Drag Race was a mere $20,000?
Things have come a long way for the modest reality competition that’s turned into a mainstream cultural phenomenon. Now, the cash portion of the grand prize is up to a whopping $100,000 for the third installment of the All-Stars franchise, which returns this Thursday to VH1.
Starring Aja, BenDeLaCreme, Chi Chi DeVayne, Kennedy Davenport, Milk, Morgan McMichaels, Shangela, Thorgy Thor and Trixie Mattel (plus a surprise 10th queen), fans of past seasons will surely already have someone to root for. And perhaps someone to hate.
But we’re not going to go there.
