RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars
1 2 3 4 5 6

RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 2, also known as All Stars 2, is the second season of the All Star spin-off of RuPaul's Drag Race. On June 17, 2016, the cast was announced. The official trailer announced a new twist to this season of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars: the top two queens in each challenge will have to "lip-sync for their legacy". The queen who wins that lip-sync will receive the opportunity to eliminate a fellow queen.[1] It premiered on the Logo network on August 25, 2016, at 8 pm.

The season featured 10 contestants competing for a coveted spot into the "Drag Race Hall of Fame", a one-year supply of Anastasia Beverly Hills cosmetics, and a cash prize of $100,000.

The winner of this All Stars season was Alaska.

The song playing during the runway every episode is "Sexy Drag Queen (doot doot 'doot-swift' Remix)", while the song playing during the credits is "Throw Ya Hands Up", from RuPaul's album Realness. Also, for RuPaul's walk on the runway, the classic version of "Cover Girl" was changed to the "Macutchi's Taterz Deep Edit".

In June 2021, Ginger Minj returned to compete on All Stars 6.

About the Show

Hot off the heels of one of the most electrifying seasons of "RuPaul's Drag Race," Mama Ru will return to the runway for "RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars" Season 2 premiering Thursday, August 25th at 8:00 PM ET/PT on Logo with a supersized 90-minute episode. YouTube sensation Todrick Hall joins Carson Kressley and Michelle Visage on the judging panel alongside RuPaul for a season packed with more eleganza, wigtastic challenges and twists than Drag Race has ever seen. The new season featuring 10 of the most celebrated competitors vying for a second chance to enter Drag Race herstory will be filled with plenty of heated competition, lip-syncing for the legacy, and, of course, the All-Stars Snatch Game.
